Royal Pains

Series 2 - 2. Lovesick

Radio Times
Review by:
Mark Braxton

In the same way that Jessica Fletcher was the kiss of death in Murder, She Wrote, superdoc Hank Lawson is TV’s kiss of life. A diagnostician to rival Gregory House, Hank is always on hand to solve bizarre medical conundrums and pluck solutions from his planet-
sized brain. Such a formula could prove irksome, but the neat-as-ninepence approach works, thanks mainly to the genial leads.

An STD whodunnit and a serious case of lovesickness help put the show back in the groove after last week’s blip, and adding to the fun is a semi-regular gig for Henry “the Fonz” Winkler as Hank’s scoundrel father Eddie. Thumbs up all round.
