Doctor, Doctor chronicles the exploits of four doctors who formed the Northeast Medical Partners. After completing their Harvard medical schooling and residencies they all got together and setup their own partnership in Providence, Rhode Island. The focal point of the series is Mike Stratford, a semi-psychotic doctor who has a passion for healing, anybody. Besides being a doctor, Mike has written a couple of books and is a daily feature on Wake Up Providence..., a local morning TV show. Other major characters include: Richard, Mike's gay brother and an assistant English professor; Dierdre, a doctor whose looking for the right man and once slept with Mike; Grant, a doctor whose only looking to keep his image perfect; Abe, a doctor whose married with a son and a perfect family life; Faye, a nurse who likes crossword puzzles and kinky things. Other recurring characters include Mike's mother Connie, and the two hosts for Wake Up Providence..., Pia & Hugh. Two love interests for Mike were Elizabeth, a television producer and Leona, Grant's sister, a psychologist. The series was a summer replacement that did well enough for CBS to carry it into their fall schedule. After thirteen episodes, the show was put on hiatus. It returned later with two new episodes in the summer and was again added to the fall schedule with another batch of episodes with some minor changes, including the addition of Grant's sister and niece. Fourteen new episodes were aired and the series was placed on hiatus again. The remaining episodes that were produced were shown later that summer but unfortunately the show was not picked up again.
