New Aussie drama Doctor Doctor premieres on Wednesday, September 14 at 8.40pm on the Nine Network.
After a spectacular fall from grace, high-flying heart surgeon Dr Hugh Knight (Rodger Corser) receives a life-changing punishment from the Medical Tribunal – he is forced to work for a year as a country GP in his former home town of Whyhope.
Doctor Doctor follows Hugh’s attempt to rebuild his world in the town he has spent his whole life running away from. Now the only way to salvage his brilliant career is to work as a lowly GP in an under-resourced, small-town hospital surrounded by estranged family, former friends, crazed colleagues, oddball patients, jealous brothers and a newlywed ex-girlfriend.
Doctor Doctor features an outstanding ensemble cast including Nicole da Silva, Ryan Johnson, Tina Burial, Steve Bisley, Hayley McElhinney, Shalom Brune-Franklin, Matt Castley, Chloe Bayliss, Dave Eastgate, Charles Wu, Belinda Bromilow, Lucy Durack and John Batchelor.
The ten part series is an EQ Media and Entertainment Production, made with the support of Screen Australia and Screen NSW for The Nine Network.
