Does anyone remember the television show Doctor Doctor? It was a short-lived comedy about four doctors who started their own practice. The main character was the nutty Matt Frewer (better known for his role as Max Headroom in the mid-80s), who provided a surprising number of laughs. The show didn’t take off and I barely remember anything about it, except that I looked forward to when it came on.
One memory of the show is shared by an IMDB visitor:
In a flashback to college, Matt Frewer’s character is acting like a doofus and distracting his colleagues while they’re supposed to be studying for exams. A particularly obnoxious comment makes one woman demand, “Who do you think you are?!” “Tippi Hedron!” Matt replies, and starts waving his arms around his head shrieking “The birds! The birds!”
Now that’s quality comedy.
I’d love to see this show again, but apparently I missed the re-runs on USA a couple years back.
