Not uninteresting

I expected a sort of hospital movie, a doctor' diary, the daily procedural doctor routine, as you may watch from time to time concerning the police force. Not really. Burgess Meredith plays here an old doc, in the far countryside, who is so ill that he can't heal the rural people any more. So his assistants decide to replace him. But they may not have his experience. And the local council doesn't agree to let them practicing instead of the doc.

Good characterization, and I am surprised that no one has commented it yet.

Worth, but not astounding either.

Directed by the prolific TV director Bernard Kowalski.
