Duncan (Robin Nedwell) and Dick (Geoffrey Davies) return from their escapades on the MS Begonia ('"Doctor at Sea" (1974)' ) and manage to wangle new jobs at St Swithin's Hospital. Unfortunately for them, Professor Sir Geoffrey Loftus ('Ernest Clark' ) is still on their case... Written by

After having enough cruising around the world Warring and Stewart -clark managed to return to St Swithans for what we were to learn was the penultimate series 'doctor on the go'. This kept faith with the original theme with all it's carrying ON's and we were introduced to the attractive Dr Kate Wright, the dopey Dr Mackenzie and the stiff backed and humorless Dr Gasgoigne. This lasted a respectable two seasons before Waring and Stewart-Clarke had to emigrate to OZ (presumably they were both struck off). By the time of the last series they had run out of ideas, scripts but more importantly they had all grown up.
(Note: in 1992 they all returned for "doctor on the top" which mercifully was sent packing after a tedious six episodes, that was not in any way funny.)
