24 Favorite TV Doctors

by | October 20, 2016 | Comments

After a detour into the dark world of arms dealing for AMC’s excellent The Night Manager, Hugh Laurie is back with a medical degree — to the delight of House fans everywhere. Except this time, he’s playing for thrills in Hulu original Chance, based on the acclaimed novel by Kem Nunn and now available on the streaming service. In honor of the new release, let’s review some of our favorite doctors from TV history.

  • Brad McMillan

    no jack from lost?

    • No Dr. Jack Shephard, no list.

  • Akame

    JD, Turk, Dr. Cox ?

    • A Washed up Meme

      Thank you

  • Baineblade

    …No Doctor Who? I mean come on!

    • Skaught

      Not really a doctor, though.

  • Gotta be Hawkeye Pierce or Doogie.

    • BlackAdamForPresident

      Dr. McCoy gave a woman a pill and she grew a new kidney. Let’s see Hawkeye or Doogie do that.

      • pegpru

        Now that’s a doctor!

  • v_for_verisimilitude

    You put the two Mark Sloans next to each other. Brilliant, RT.

    Not so brilliant? The omission of several doctors: Drs. Geiger and Shutt from Chicago Hope; Ben Casey; The Doctor (Star Trek: Voyager); and, oh yes, THE Doctor (Doctor Who).

    Thinking about it, a year ago I would have added Dr. Huxtable to this list without thinking twice.
    Times change.

  • azentropy

    Dr. Joel Fleischman from Northern Exposure should be on this list!

  • britain

    Forgot Chad Everett of Medical Center.

  • BlackAdamForPresident

    Quincy? He was a coroner. If you’re calling him for a diagnosis, you waited a little too long. BTW – Is that show still ongoing? It’s marked as starting in 1976, but no end date was indicated.

  • northernwatch98

    Dr. Richard Kimble

  • Gabriel Owen

    Wheres Dr. Who

  • bibleverse1

    no Doctor Who?

  • bibleverse1

    And no Dr Watson?

  • Prof59

    My favorite TV doctors would also include Dr Green, Dr Solomon (3rd Rock), all the cast of Big Bang Theory, Dr Bombay, Dr Katz, Frasier and Niles, Dr Farnsworth, Dr Teeth, Dr Sam Beckett, and Dr Johnny Fever!

  • Skaught

    Think we got enough Gray’s Anatomy in there? Couldn’t find room for Harry Weston from Empty Nest?
