Doctor Down Under
16 December 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Robin Nedwell and Geoffrey Davies demonstrate the magic that exists between their respective 'Doctor' characters. Geoffrey portrays himself as the usual cheating, lying, conniving and manipulative womanising gambler. Robin plays the usual combination of responsible, caring doctor, and over-the-top party-boy.

They are well supported by Australian performers. Frank Wilson is Professor Norman Beaumont, a take-off of Professor Sir Geoffrey Loftus from the original 'Doctor' series, and John Derum is Dr Maurice Griffin, a take-off of Dr James Gascoigne.

The scripts are entertaining and enjoyable, and every bit as good as those for the original British episodes.

Overall: Good entertainment for 'Doctor' fans.
