Doctor in the House was a hilarious programme that was staged in a teaching hospital. Based on the novel by Richard Gordon, Doctor in the House was full of humour – from nurse chasing to examme-room hilarity. Richard Briers played Simon Sparrow and Geoffrey Sumner played Sir Lancelot Spratt. So get ready to bust open those stitches, because you will be laughing non-stop throughout the doctor’s visit.

Richard Gordon’s acceptance into St Swithan’s medical school came as no surprise to anyone, least of all him – after all, he had been to public school, played first XV rugby, and his father was, let’s face it, ‚a St Swithan’s man’. Surely he was set for life. It was rather a shock then to discover that, once there, he would actually have to work, and quite hard. Fortunately for Richard Gordon, life proved not to be all dissection and textbooks after all… This hilarious hospital comedy is perfect reading .
