There was a time when we were getting shows not just from England, but also Canada. That was good news. The bad news was that some shows had all the production value of a cancelled postage stamp.
Police Surgeon was one of those shows. The series lasted three years in Canada (1971-4), slightly less, if memory serves, here in the US. Funded by the folks at Colgate-Palmolive, which sponsored the NBC soap, The Doctors, Surgeon starred Sam Groom (Another World) as Dr. Simon Locke. During the first season, Jack Albertson ("Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory") played Locke's boss, but quit after the first season because the Canadian producers were el scrimpo when it came to accomodations.
For the final two seasons, Larry D. Mann replaced Albertson. Not much difference, really.
Here's a sample clip:
Somewhere along the way, the show's title was changed to Dr. Simon Locke, after Groom's character, but that didn't help matters, either. My memory is hazy, but it did air on, I believe, Monday nights in my area, on the same channel that was the NBC affiliate at the time.
