Trivia

Actor William Daniels said that when he was offered the part of Dr. Craig, he was not only given the pilot script to read, he was given the first three scripts to read. He said producers did this to show that his character was prominent in some episodes but not others. Daniels said it gave him a sense of the ensemble nature of the show. See more »

Wonderfully engrossing medical drama.
15 November 2000 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderfully scripted, well-acted drama which takes place in the fictional Saint Eligius hospital in Boston. The ensemble cast is perfect, with stellar performances by William Daniels, Ed Flanders, and Norman Lloyd as the long-practicing doctors who hold the hospital together. The series follows the physicians, residents, and staff through their personal and professional lives, with just enough humor and pathos to keep it all interesting. Especially notable is the two-part episode dealing with the 50th anniversary of Saint Eligius. The flashback sequences really tie to the current stories, help fill in blanks and make you understand more fully certain characters' actions and quirks. I highly recommend this series. It is currently being shown on Bravo (cable network). Look for it!
