Review

Our Score
Two years after taking the nation by storm, ITV's soap smash made it to the big screen. And what a disappointment it must have been. The characters find themselves caught up in the round of romantic entanglements and medical emergencies that were old hat at the time of MGM's Dr Kildare series (although they continue to surface in modern doctor-dramas like Casualty and ER). Michael Craig is dreadful as the Oxbridge General new boy playing fast and loose with the hearts of his patients and a colleague's neglected wife, and even the usually reliable Wilfrid Hyde White is off colour.

Summary

A new hospital consultant wins fame with his radical approach to heart surgery, but jeopardises his career by getting involved with a colleague's wife. Drama, based on the TV series, starring Michael Craig, Joan Sims and Wilfrid Hyde-White.
