Classic soaps over the last few years have enjoyed a repeat run with Emmerdale and Coronation Street on ITV3, Brookside on STV Player, and EastEnders, Holby City, and Casualty from their first episodes on Drama. One show that I’ve seen requested by many, including myself, but hasn’t been picked up until now, is the BBC daytime soap, Doctors.
From August 14 at 8am (weekdays with a double-bill) fans can catch the show from the very first episode. Whether a long time viewer or a newcomer to the show Doctors has over 20 years of brilliant episodes and an ever changing cast – like Holby City, new faces each week in each new story.
Big names have come and gone over the years with All Creatures Great and Small’s Christopher Timothy appearing for 6 years.
