Brilliant series deserved to be Encored on 9GEM
###Doctor Doctor - Season 2
A SECOND DOSE OF DOCTOR DOCTOR
Doctor Doctor, 2016’s big drama hit, has commenced production in Sydney of its second series, to air on the Nine Network later this year.
Series two sees Hugh (Rodger Corser) determined to live out his probation in peace. However there is no peace in Whyhope. Relationships will be tested; with an election scandal, a kidney transplant and a wedding on the horizon. The dysfunctional Knight family faces a tough decision: will their struggles bring them closer together or tear them apart?
An outstanding cast is returning for the 2017 season: Rodger Corser (Hugh), Nicole da Silva (Charlie), Steve Bisley (Jim), Ryan Johnson (Matt), Tina Bursill (Meryl), Hayley McElhinney (Penny), Matt Castley (Ajax), Chloe Bayliss (Hayley), Charles Wu (Ken) and Belinda Bromilow (Betty). All are back in the second series.
Joining them is Angus McLaren (Packed to the Rafters), who plays the charismatic ex-army medic Dr. Toke – a man with Penny (played by Hayley McElhinney) in his sights. Another strong addition is Brittany Clark who plays Mia, Whyhope’s straight-talking but beautiful new nurse.
Doctor Doctor is filmed in Sydney and country NSW and produced by Essential Media & Entertainment for Nine with the assistance of Screen Australia and Screen NSW.
Great to see it sold overses but the name change.
One of my friends landed a gig for an extra, didn’t know what it was for, but it’s probably this then
What happened to the Irish nurse? I liked her.
She has a role in an overseas TV series so was probably unavailable. Might be the reason she’s not back.
Thanks. Really disappointing even though it’s great for her career.
AUSTRALIA’S FAVOURITE DOCTOR IS BACK!
Returns Wednesday 16 August at 8.40pm after The Block.
The exceptional cast is back for season two: Rodger Corser (Hugh), Nicole da Silva (Charlie), Steve Bisley (Jim), Ryan Johnson (Matt), Tina Bursill (Meryl), Hayley McElhinney (Penny), Matt Castley (Ajax), Chloe Bayliss (Hayley), Charles Wu (Ken) and Belinda Bromilow (Betty).
Angus McLaren (Packed to the Rafters), who plays the charismatic ex-army medic Dr Toke, and Brittany Clark playing Mia, Whyhope’s straight-talking new nurse, are two additions to the DOCTOR DOCTOR cast.
Life is about to get a whole lot more complicated for bad boy Doctor Hugh. Penny (Hayley McElhinney) has been gone for a month now, after trading Whyhope for a job in the city. And she’s making the most of the lifestyle change, including dating an ex-army medic she met at her new hospital, Dr Toke (Angus McLaren), which leaves Hugh less than impressed. Will Hugh play his cards right and win her back before it’s too late?
Meanwhile, Whyhope hospital is in chaos with Hugh’s dangerously incompetent new boss Nora Gumbleton (Helen Thomson) at the helm.
Matt (Ryan Johnson) has disappeared to clear his head and Charlie (Nicole da Silva) is desperately trying to get him to return home, their marriage is in trouble, and it’s all thanks to Hugh. Theirs isn’t the only relationship being tested. When Hugh’s teenage son Ajax (Matt Castley) and his devoutly religious long-term girlfriend Hayley (Chloe Bayliss) accidentally have sex, Ajax wants to marry her!
After winning the election as Mayor, Hugh’s mother Meryl (Tina Bursill) faces a corruption investigation and could lose everything, while his dad Jim (Steve Bisley) is rushed to hospital after he collapses. His life is in danger, and only Hugh can save him.
And all the while, Hugh fights with temptation at every turn. The countdown is on, can he make it to the end of his probation without screwing up again, and ruining his career forever?
DOCTOR DOCTOR films in Sydney and country NSW, produced by Ian Collie, Claudia Karvan and Tony McNamara for Nine, with the assistance of Screen Australia and Screen NSW.
Not the first time that Nine have decided to run one Australian drama in direct competition with another. A shame as it is only going to hurt both programs.
Nine could have waited for a few more weeks before showing it on Tuesdays, after True Story finishes its first season.
Tuesdays would have been a great day to air it. I can’t see Doctor Doctor doing very well against Offspring.
UKTV in the UK has acquired The Heart Guy, the Australian drama also known as Doctor Doctor.
Filming for season three starts in NSW this month. Nicole da Silva, who plays Charlie in the drama and is due with her first child in July, will be one busy woman as she will also be filming season 7 of Wentworth from next week.
So will both characters be pregnant next season?
Can’t see Frankie being pregnant in her current situation.
They might skip ahead in time.
Doctor Doctor Series 3 Commences Production
Australia’s favourite bad boy doctor is back for a third series of Nine’s hit drama series, Doctor Doctor, which has commenced production in Sydney and will return to the Nine Network later this year.
The clock has run out on Doctor Hugh Knight’s (Rodger Corser) probation, leaving him free to return to the big smoke. But when tragedy strikes the Knight family, he’s going to find it harder than ever to leave the family farm.
An outstanding cast returns for the new series, including Rodger Corser (Hugh), Nicole da Silva (Charlie), Steve Bisley (Jim), Ryan Johnson (Matt), Tina Bursill (Meryl), Hayley McElhinney (Penny), Matt Castley (Ajax), Chloe Bayliss (Hayley), Charles Wu (Ken), Belinda Bromilow (Betty) and Brittany Clark (Mia).
Joining the cast are Vince Colosimo (Underbelly, Schapelle), who will play a long-lost relative and TV Week Logie Award winning Miranda Tapsell (Love Child, The Sapphires) who plays an old school friend of the Knight brothers.
Doctor Doctor is filmed in Sydney and country NSW and is produced by Easy Tiger Productions for Nine with the assistance of Create NSW.
Brilliant little drama. Credit to all involved.
Cheers to Nine for revealing a major spoiler in the promo launch for season three. Totally unnecessary.
I was really annoyed by that promo. It gave away so much.
