Doctors on BBC 1 is a British daytime soap opera following the lives and events that go on in a surgery set in the fictional town of Letherbridge. This town is defined as being close to Birmingham in the Midlands and with the series originally filmed in the Pebble Mill studios in Edgbaston, it is not too far from where the show is set.
The storylines deal with the lives of staff and patients at the fictional Mill Health Centre and Campus Surgery and involve all the usual romances and frictions of a workplace drama as well as new characters and storylines built round the patients. Most of the action takes place at the surgeries and on house calls allowing the storylines to develop away from the clinic setting.

Doctors on BBC 1 has been running almost continually since 2003 where earlier episodes included a noticeably smaller cast that was more self-contained. However, with an increase number of episodes each week, the cast has increased with a shift to include continuing storylines around the patients as well as the staff.
The initial lead star of the soap was Christopher Timothy but after six years in the role of practice manager Dr Brendan “Mac” McGuire a twice-married alcoholic, he left the show.
Cast member have changed over the last decade and none of the original cast now remain which does reflect real life in most workplaces.
Suffice to say if you like a drama with intense relationship highs and lows and some extraordinary complicated personal stories you will love this show. Even better, you do not have to be a long-term watcher to catch up with the characters and the plots.
