The Doris Day Show

Show Summary

The Doris Day Show was first seen in September of 1968 and quickly became a series marked for it's constant premise changes, with only one constant, Doris Day played Doris Martin for all five years. During the first season, Doris Martin was a widow raising two young sons, Billy and Toby, on her own. The Martins lived on a family ranch and much of the storylines revolved around them adjusting to rural living. The ranch was run by Buck Webb, Leroy B. Simpson was the hired hand and Aggie was the housekeeper who was replaced by Juanita in late 1968. The second season saw a few changes. Doris got a job as a secretary for a magazine in San Fancisco, called Today's World. Thus, she commuted daily to work from the ranch. New characters were added, Michael Nicholson was the editor and boss, Ron Harvey was the assistant editor and Myrna Gibbons was another secretary. The third season had additional changes in that Doris, Toby, Billy and their dog, Lord Nelson, moved into an apartment in San Francisco. The apartment was owned by Angie Palucci and her husband Louie who also ran an Italian restaurant on the first floor. This season also saw Doris moving on up and she began writing some stories for the magazine. The fourth season saw the most dramatic change yet, Doris was still working for Today's World but now she was a single, staff writer, who no longer had children or a dog. She was a single working girl. Cy Bennett was her new boss and Jackie Parker was his secretary. After a long line of changes, both the fourth and fifth season stayed the same, premise-wise.
