Owen, M.D.


Owen, M.D. Information

Owen, M.D. was a BBC 1 television series that ran from 1971 to 1973. It centered around the eponymous lead character's new country practice, following his departure from The Doctors, which had been set in north London.

Two-part stories aired in the 7 p.m. slot every Wednesday and Thursday for six months, "a strange mixture of corn and ham", according to TV critic Patrick Campbell, "intended to catch the Crossroads audience that thrives on cliches and stock situations". The second series, in 1973, consisted of nine 50-minute episodes broadcast on Sunday evenings.

The theme music to the programme - "Sleepy Shores" by the Johnny Pearson Orchestra - spent 15 weeks in the UK charts between late 1971 and early 1972, peaking at No.8. Of the run, 50 episodes have not survived, and five of the remainder only exist as monochrome Telerecordings.
