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.

  • Doris Day made her way on TV...

    7.0
    Without a doubt, this series had some great things going for it but...as things got going it was stopped made it hard to really make a hard to write a great reveiw but here it goes.

    The show went through numerous changes, the first season Doris Martin (Day) recently widowed, moved to her father's farm with her two boys, after the season ended the series might had ran out of ideas to stay within the farm, so the second season brought Doris to find a job in the city,while still on the farm, she commutes there, by the third season, she along with the boys moved into an apartment nearer her work.

    The final two seasons had her as a single lady working as a photographer for a magazine, gone was the entire cast from the privious seasons.

    While the show might have gone on for another season or so, Doris her self called it quits.

    A wonderfully made series that no one actullay cares about.It's a delight to watch, the first season was a bit sappy, but it got better during the next few seasons.moreless
