"Doctor in the House" follows the misadventures of medical students Michael Upton, Duncan Waring, Paul Collier and Dick Stuart-Clark. The lads basically mean well, but their habits of skyving off and attempting to chat up every available nurse drives the ferocious Professor Geoffrey Loftus to distraction.Written by

The episode I always remember is the one where Duncan and Michael find out that the pompous and appropriately named Dick is trying to get into an exclusive club whose members include Dr. Loftus as well as several other high ranking Doctors. since he's waiting to receive an invitation they send him one to a bogus ceremony of their own making.
Dick shows up to what turns out to be a deserted area with a formation of candles on the floor where he is led by men dressed in red tunics & hoods that cover their faces so he can't see who they are. Just as he's starting to ge really freaked out, the "leader" comes out (face also covered) carrying an unconcious woman for what appears to be a human sacrifice. Dick looks at this guy and utters in disbelief "Dr. Loftus?" right before finally flipping out and running away.
Later, when he realized his friends were playing a joke on him he pretends to be ok with it and invites them to a party he's throwing. Thinking it's a trap but not wanting to miss out on one of Dick's wild parties, they discuss whether or not to go and finally decide to just tell the police there's an obscene gathering there so that way they won't actually be missing out on a great party since the police will break it up. when the police get there, they find it's the actual meeting of the elite club Dr. Loftus is in and since it's a group of grown men dressed in suit jackets, short shorts and funny hats, they arrest everyone there.
All througout college, any time I tried to come up with a practical joke on a friend or a funny fraternity stunt, this episode of Dr. In The House is what first came to mind. Absolutely hilarious.
