About Doctors

Doctors is a British medical soap opera which began broadcasting on BBC One on 26 March 2000. Set in the fictional West Midlands town of Letherbridge, the soap follows the lives of the staff of both an NHS doctor's surgery and a university campus surgery, as well as the lives of their families and friends. Initially, only 41 episodes of the programme were ordered, but due to the positive reception, the BBC ordered it as a continuing soap opera. Doctors was filmed at the Pebble Mill Studios until 2004; production then relocated to the BBC Drama Village. Episodes are filmed three months prior to transmission. The soap is broadcast at 1:45 pm on BBC One, and from March 2022, episodes of Doctors will be repeated on BBC Two at 7:00 pm. Since its inception, Doctors has consistently won the share of viewers in its daytime time slot, and as of 2020, it averages at 1.6 million live viewers in its daytime broadcast. The programme has been nominated for and won numerous awards, and has been praised for tackling issues that are considered to be controversial and taboo issues in British culture and social life that are typically unseen on British television. Doctors takes three annual transmission breaks across the year; at Easter, during the summer and at Christmas.
