Internationally-acclaimed Joanna Lumley, star of the worldwide hit cult comedy series Absolutely Fabulous, and the feature film Cold Comfort Farm, stars as television's favorite physician in the hilarious half-hour comedy series DR. WILLOUGHBY from the creators of The New Statesman and Shine on Harvey Moon, and the director of A Fish Called Wanda. On-screen she's the smart, saintly and compassionate surgeon "Dr. Willoughby" in the daytime drama of the same name. Behind the scenes, aging actress Donna Sinclair (Lumley) is actually an egomaniac who will do absolutely anything to get her way!
Once the cameras stop rolling, Donna rolls over her fearful co-stars Ralph (Brian Protheroe) and Crystal (Paula Bacon), while her pained producer, Emma (Isobel Middleton), dreams of leaving for another show...any other show!
Fresh, funny and completely fearless, DR. WILLOUGHBY is the newest series from Pearson Television's WitzEnd, the producers behind Lovejoy, Pie in the Sky, and Sometime Never.
Come see why laughter is just what the doctor ordered.
