Too much Soap opera
26 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

In this, the final installment, we really see why this series didn't go on. In the first season, the 1963 episodes, there were more striking representations of interesting psychological conditions that Corder had to first divine from symptoms manifested by patients' bizarre behaviour, which was the fun of the whole show, and then his efforts to cure this condition. The second lot was far more softer, and wordier, and ever more melodramatic, as if aiming for the women's serials fan especially. In this last episode, the Doctor is barely in it, sort of a friend of the family, offering advice. It's all about the domestic intranquillity of a man cheating on his wife, how it all blows up when the girl he's seeing gets pregnant, and how the demons of illegitimacy and divorce are to be dealt with.It's all soggy Victoriana, and the ever-annoying Miss Tushingham doesn't make it any better.
