Doctor Doctor – Series Finale (Taste of Whyhope)

The job of a series finale is to bring a show to a close, concluding all subplots and story arcs. This series finale did its job perfectly and I’m going to review it character by character. Hugh, Penny and Sharna – I couldn’t start this review without starting with the show’s protagonist. Hugh spends the majority of the episode saying

Doctor Doctor – Season 5, Episode 7 (A Ghost in the Heart)

We’re coming to the end of the road with Doctor Doctor with the penultimate episode. The job of a penultimate episode is to provide a springboard for a season, or in this case, a series finale. I felt this episode has done its job perfectly. I’ll be reviewing this episode character by character. Hugh, Floyd, Penny and Sharna – This

Doctor Doctor – Season 5, Episode 6 (Reasonable Doubt)

I’ll be reviewing this episode character by character. Meryl – Today was D-Day for Meryl, going to court to face the music for her corrupt behaviour. Meryl starts the day at 5.07am getting up to garden, in the first of many efforts to distract herself. Hugh comes up to see her and reminds her that if she discredits Sharna, it

Doctor Doctor – Season 5, Episode 5 (Bridge Over Troubled Water)

Once again, I’m going to review this episode character by character. Ken – This episode was a rarity as the spotlight was on Ken for once. Ken’s parents, Howin and Jing, have surprised him by coming to town and they think he’s a doctor. Ken spends most of the episode pretending to be a doctor to keep the truth from

Doctor Doctor – Season 5, Episode 4 (The Things We Do for Love)

Once again, I’ll be reviewing this episode character by character. Meryl – As this episode had a large focus on her, I thought it’d best to start with her. The episode opens with Meryl going to see her solicitor about her fraud case. When the solicitor informs her that she’ll have to do jail time, she insults him and storms

Doctor Doctor – Season 5, Episode 3 (The Unbearable Lightness of Being in Whyhope)

I’m going to review this episode character by character. Ajax, Hayley and Tom – While they weren’t necessarily the biggest focus of the episode, this episode did jump start two story arcs focusing on them: Hayley cheating on Ajax, and Ajax developing a gambling problem. Once again Hayley is taken for granted by everyone in the family when Hugh dumps

Doctor Doctor – Season 5, Episode 2 (It Had to be You)

Now that the premiere has come and gone, the season can well and truly get underway. Like with last week’s review, I’m going to review this episode character by character. Wes and Kassie – Despite the fact that they are new characters to the show, as they were the episode’s biggest focus, I thought I’d start with them. Wes makes

Doctor Doctor – Season 5 Premiere (To Me, To You)

The job of a season premiere is to establish new story arcs and subplots for the season, as well as address any loose ends that were left in the previous season’s finale. This premiere did its job perfectly. Generally when I am reviewing the season premiere of a show, I re-read the review I wrote on the previous season’s finale,
