    Premise: An old doctor and a young doctor treat their patients in an era of specialized medication and uncaring doctors
    Robert Young as Dr. Marcus Welby
    James Brolin as Dr. Steven Kiley
    Anne Baxter as Myra Sherwood (1969-1970)
    Gavin Brendan as Phil Porter (1975-1976)

    Even though the two doctors were general practitioners, they would treat their patients with pseudo-psychoanalysis.
    As a result of the show, thousands of people wrote to Robert Young asking him for help with their health problems.
    One of its episodes about a rape of a teenage boy by a male teacher set off the first organized protest of a TV show by gay activists.
    They tried adding a love interest for Dr. Welby, but it was dropped after one season because of a lack of interest.
    Physicians disliked the show because their patients would complain that they weren't as nice to them as Dr. Welby was to his patients.
    Dr. Welby's advice to one patient who admitted to sexual urges for other men was to ignore them and eventually he would grow out of them.
    It benefited from the softened network standards and did not shy away from controversial issues.
    Robert Young came out of retirement to play the lead role of Dr. Welby.
    Both Robert Young and James Brolin won Emmy's for their performances.
    It was the first ABC show to hit #1 in the yearly Nielsen ratings (1970).
