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.

User Reviews

One of the best shows on the air.
14 September 2003 | by ktexasSee all my reviews

I dearly love this show. I was so sorry to see it cancelled. I watched it every week and in reruns. Some of my favorite episodes had Johnny Cash and his wife June and a couple of episodes with Willie Nelson.

I was watching it on Hallmark when they suddenly took it off. Now I can't find it on any channel. Good news though. They have now put Dr. Quinn on DVD. I have bought the first season and am waiting for the second season to come out the end of this month. Now I can watch them any time I want and don't have to depend on tv to put them on just whenever they want to.
