MARCUS WELBY, MD – Starring Robert Young
MARCUS WELBY, MD – Starring Robert Young
Marcus Welby, M.D. aired from September 23, 1969 to July 29, 1976. Robert Young (of Father Knows Best fame) starred as the title character, a family practitioner with a kind bedside manner. As with most medical dramas of the day, the main conflict was between Dr. Welby's unorthodox way of treating patients as opposed to the strait-laced methods of Dr. Steven Kiley (James Brolin).
The doctors worked alongside each other in their private practice in Southern California, regularly working in conjunction with the nearby Lang Memorial Hospital. At the office, their loyal secretary and friend was Consuelo Lopez (Elena Verdugo).
Its intelligent handling of many varied medical cases - some common, some uncommon - made it an instant hit for ABC. Storylines included depression, brain damage, breast cancer, mononucleosis, venereal disease, epilepsy, leukemia, dysautonomia, rape, and addiction to painkillers, among others. At its second season (1970-1971), it ranked #1 in the Nielsen Ratings.. The same year, both Young and Brolin won Emmy Awards for their work, as did the show for Outstanding Dramatic Series. Young won a Golden Globe in 1972 for his performance. THIS IS A HUGE 30 DISC SET – MOST DISCS HAVE AN EXCELLENT RATING OF 8 OR BETTER
