Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Derek Royle starred in this British children's sitcom as Dr. Hogg, a supremely incompetent general practioner serving the community of Belling-on-Sea. The absent-minded, slapstick-prone Hogg was aided and abetted by nurse Pearl, originally played by Jacki Piper, then by Wendy Richard (who was at the time pulling double duty on the nighttime comedy series Are You Being Served). Nineteen half-hour episodes were produced in all. Hogg's Back was beamed out by Britain's Southern Television from 1975 to 1976.
