Storyline

The fifth daughter of a wealthy Boston physician, Michaela Quinn defies the conventions of post-Civil War society by following in her father's footsteps. After his death, 'Dr. Mike' leaves Boston and moves to the frontier town of Colorado Springs, where she finds the citizens less than thrilled by the concept of a woman doctor. While she struggles to earn their trust, Mike's life is complicated by a growing relationship with mountain man Byron Sully, and the unexpected responsibility of raising three orphaned children.

Trivia

In a 2015 feature on National Public Radio, Jane Seymour said that although she eventually came to think of "Dr. Quinn" as one of the projects she is most proud of in her career, she originally signed her contract for it (including both the TV-movie/pilot and a five-year series commitment) with only one night's notice-not because she had any particular interest in the show but because she had just discovered that her then husband/business manager had lost all her money and gotten her $9 million in debt. She had told her agent that to avoid losing her house and to protect her two young children, she would do any TV project available no matter what it was, and Dr. Quinn was the first one offered to her.

Wonderful
11 September 2005 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

This is my favorite show. I became hooked shortly after I started to watch it.Dr. Mike is a brave, stubborn woman who knows what she wants (atleast most of the time) & goes after it. She is a great mom to Matthew, Colleen, & Brian and also to Katie. She's also a great doctor. The medical procedures they show on the show are all actual procedures they did back in the time it takes place, too. Sully is also a great guy who reins in Dr. Mike whenever she needs it. He is an excellent friend to all of his friends. The show deals with real issues, too. They dealt with prejudice(when Robert E. buys his house & Dr. Mike the clinic), gambling(Matthew), drinking (Jake), etc.In short it is a wonderful show.
