Based on the highly popular Doctor series of books by Richard Gordon, Doctor in the House was a massive hit for ITV1 on its original transmission in 1969. With hilarious scripts from Bill Oddie and Graeme Garden (The Goodies), John Cleese and Graham Chapman (Monty Python's Flying Circus) and Barry Cryer (The Two Ronnies, the Kenny Everett Television Show), the Doctor series lasted nearly a decade and was even revived in the 90s as a further sequel. This set contains all 13 hilarious episodes from series one, complete and uncut, the majority of which have never been previously released on DVD in the UK. It's the tail-end of the Swinging Sixties and young Michael Upton manages to be accepted as a medical student at St. Swithin's Hospital, though his admittance is more to do with his rugby skills than any medical ability he may possess. Taken under the wing of fellow students Dick Stuart-Clark (currently on his fifth year as a first year student) and Duncan Waring, Upton is soon plunged into a whirlwind of beer, well-meaning disasters, womanising fellow students and the force of nature that is Professor Loftus.
