Storyline

Dr. Simon Locke was a handsome young physician who moved to the small town of Dixon Mills, Canada, where he set up practice with his curmudgeonly older mentor Dr. Andrew Sellers. Louise Wynn was their nurse, as they treated crime victims, abused children and a variety of diseases, some serious, others not so. In the second season, Dr. Locke left Dixon Mills, Dr. Sellers and Nurse Wynn behind for the big city, where he joined the police emergency unit and received a new boss in former Dixon Mills cop Dan Palmer. Palmer was later replaced by Lt. Gordon, as Locke investigated a number of crimes associated with the patients he was treating. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

A cheap, by the numbers syndie, but watchable.
6 March 2008 | by laroche-3See all my reviews

"Police Surgeon" was in fact the second and third seasons of a syndicated half hour TV series that began life as "Dr. Simon Locke" in its' first season. Sam Groom, a likable enough actor, played as Dr. Simon Locke, a young doctor who, in the "Police Surgeon" incarnation of the series, moves from the Dixon Mills small-town physician of the first season to a surgeon with the medical unit of a big-city police department (Toronto?) for the second and third seasons. Larry Mann was also featured during the last two seasons as Lieutenant Jack Gordon of the police department. As seemed to be the norm in all hospital/doctor series of the time, Dr. Locke seemed to spend more time playing detective each week than did Lt. Gordon who would seem to show up close to the end of each weekly episode to "wrap-up" the case and take the criminal (pursued and apprehended by Dr. Locke) to jail.

Both "Dr. Simon Locke" and "Police Surgeon" were cheap, by the numbers, first run syndication TV series that ran from 1971-1974 but were watchable none the less.
