Now that the 12th Doctor Who has been decided, I thought we'd take a look at some other doctors – and nurses -- of primetime TV.
Medical drama has been a staple of television from the beginning. I have vague memories of the series Ben Casey and Dr. Kildare. In the late 60s and early 70s, I faithfully watched Medical Center, Marcus Welby, M.D., and The Bold Ones: the Doctors. The 80s brought St. Elsewhere. The 90s gave us ER. The 21st century ushered the brilliant but deeply flawed Dr. Gregory House into our homes.
