The Doctors

Recommended Posts

Wendy hangs around for a while after Scott departs (she is recast) Eleanor is vulnerable to Lew Dancy's charms as is Doreen Aldrich.

 

Noticed in the bed scenes b/w Mike and Toni that Armand Assante was showing off shoulder and above the ass hair, no way would that be happening with today's leading men.

Out of the Conard family Eleanor was the most interesting. So i can see why they kept her. Scott and Wendy were both dull as dishwater. I read on this tread that Eleanor ended up Luke Dancy's sugar mama.

 

So how many Dancys were there altogether? Were any of them still on the show in 1982?

The parents Virginia and Barney. Their children Joan,Jerry,Sarah, Nola and Luke. By the end only Luke was still on the show.

I'll be intrigued to see the whole Dancy family since they are almost as far removed from the hospital setting as the Conrad's are (except for Sarah).

Thanks. And how many Aldriches do we eventually see? Do all of Steve's children get aged?

The Aldrich were never a huge family. Steve, Mona and Jason. Steve had Erich with Karen. Stephanie was Carolee's daughter with Steve. Jason had a step daughter Stacy from his marriage to Doreen. A daughter Jessica from Nola. I guess at some point Steve adopted Billy. By the end of the Doctors Erich was a college student.

And toward the end, Steve got a half-brother and sister-in-law. I believe there were plans to introduce their children. Stephanie was also aged toward the end. Anne Rose Brooks played Stephanie in the final year after finishing up a stint as Diana Frame on Another World. Ian Ziering of 90210 and Sharknado fame portrayed Erich. Mark Andrews also played Erich after wrapping up his role as Chad Sutherland on The Edge of Night.

I assume there is fan-fiction or at least ideas of what happened to the main families after 1982.

It is interesting to note that Carolee Campbell remains on the credits at least a good two plus weeks after she supposedly left the show.   I wonder if this was contractual or perhaps the show wanted to give the illusion she would be returning.

Carolee last aired in late February/early March 1976. According to someone who saw a Doctors episode at the Paley Center, Carolee was still in the credits as of early summer.

 

What I find interesting is that Jennifer Houlton (Greta) isn't credited. She used to be but no longer appears in the list.

Could be a complete oversight as it is apparent those credits are prepared by hand.   I've seen misspellings, etc..

Anne Bailey Howard was a script-writer on the Doctors.. interesting.  That's a name that either brings up positive or negative feelings (her stint on Days post Leah Laiman wasn't well received).  She's a decent script writer

It sounds to me like The Doctors received one of NBC's patented 11th hour cancellations. I'm not sure TPTB would have gone to the trouble of SORASing Erich and Stephanie, introducing the Langleys, writing out Nola and killing off Mona and Billy if they knew the finish line was so close.
