Storyline

Dr. Simon Locke was a handsome young physician who moved to the small town of Dixon Mills, Canada, where he set up practice with his curmudgeonly older mentor Dr. Andrew Sellers. Louise Wynn was their nurse, as they treated crime victims, abused children and a variety of diseases, some serious, others not so. In the second season, Dr. Locke left Dixon Mills, Dr. Sellers and Nurse Wynn behind for the big city, where he joined the police emergency unit and received a new boss in former Dixon Mills cop Dan Palmer. Palmer was later replaced by Lt. Gordon, as Locke investigated a number of crimes associated with the patients he was treating. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Trivia

Jack Albertson was so disgusted at the cheap, slipshod way this show was produced that he actually pulled out of it halfway into its first season, after seeing a particularly bad set of rushes. Reminded that he still had a contract, he said, "After what I just saw up there, no jury in the world would convict me." He received his release shortly thereafter. See more »

Hey, I Actually Liked This Show
2 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sam Groom carried this show all by himself. He was the kind of doctor we all wish we could find today -- kind, caring, benevolent, and respectful of your wallet. In other words, this show was Science Fiction -- OK I am kidding of course -- except for Sam Groom. He was cool. The last thing I ever remember him doing was commercials for AMC, plugging "The Tough Americans" in response to the Japanese automobile onslaught of the late seventies. Five-year-no-rust-through warranty. Oh -- he also did commercials for Quaker State motor oil -- "Bret Bodine finishes first" in North Wilkesboro -- I am dating myself seriously. Unfortunately, the "tough Americans" didn't play with the Howdy Doody generation. AMC is gone. But Sam Groom is still around somewhere. I wonder what he's doing these days. Sam, if you are out there, CHEERS.
