Marcus Welby, MD was different. It was the first network program to have more of a true medical focus, and yet it kept a good balance, interweaving the medical theme with the drama of people's storm-tossed lives. I've read that medical professionals thought highly of this show, because of its fairly accurate depiction of a general practitioner's day-to-day life.
And Marcus Welby was such a likable character. And the show's writing was stellar. I still remember so many wonderful quotes from the show and I could probably sit down and recite a dozen of the story lines - just from memory. It made *that* kind of impression.
The show first aired on ABC in 1969 and one year later, actor Robert Young won an Emmy for his portrayal of Dr. Welby. In 1972, he won the Golden Globe Award. Interestingly, another medical drama, "Medical Center" (remember that hunky Chad Everett?) also hit the airwaves in 1969.
I came to this site, hoping against hope that Marcus Welby, MD had been put onto DVD but am saddened to see that it hasn't happened yet.
If you think it's time to get Marcus Welby, MD onto DVD, how about a "yes" vote for this review and let's show them how many people are paying attention and better yet - ready to pay *money* to see this show again (and again).
This was such a wonderful heartwarming show. Robert Young was ahead of his time with this show.
