Oh, how we love this clip from Retro TV’s upcoming relaunch of NBC’s classic soap opera The Doctors! 

Last week, Retro TV posted on their facebook page this teaser from the soap that featured James Pritchett (Dr. Matt Powers) and Elizabeth Hubbard (Althea Davis)  at the epicenter of it, but also featured the hot tempered and sexy Dr. Nick Bellini played by the late Gerald Gordon.  Gordon would later appear on General Hospital as Dr. Mark Dante!

In this classic clip from The Doctors, watch as the “Brotherhood of Healing” takes a drastic turn when Dr. Bellini has at it out with another doc in a hospital clinic office!  So much for the brotherhood!  It’s campy, cheesy, and just what the doctor ordered!

Watch it after the jump! Then let us know if you are looking forward to seeing The Doctors again, and if you remember Gerald Gordon as Nick Bellini who fell in love with Althea Davis played by Elizabeth Hubbard!

Someone in the comments said the other Doctor he is fighting with is actor Terry Kiser who played Dr John Rice 1967-69. The video looks good like it was remastered

I thought i had retro but its retroplex…so i wont get to watch…dang…from the late 60s to late 70s this was one great hospital drama…the way a soap about a hosptial should be: great characters like Liz who took an experimental drug and nearly died when she almost fell off a hospital ledge…playboy Steve in his early years and married the neurotic Dr. Karen Werner, little Greta who became a bad seed child after being bitten by an infected rabbit, singer Lauri James who became a nurse because of fear of performing in public, the villians Dr. John Morrison and Dr. Ann Larimer…and Steves mother Mona, couples Matt and Maggie, Althea and Nick, Steve and Carolee, Toni and Mike, the often troubled son of Matt, and in the late 70s the Dancy family whose matriach Virgina died tragically along with Tom Carrol at a club fire during Sara and Mikes wedding reception at club forgot the name!!! Unfortunately this shows time slot changed, cast changes, production changes behind the scenes and not very interesting storylines cost the show viewers and it was cancelled…i came back to see it during its final year and wrote the show a story idea involving many cast members that they liked and told me so but added it was too late, informing me the show had been cancelled!!!

Wow..Maybe you should write a letter to GH, because they really need new and fresh ideas for decent and entertaining story lines..and Y&R which I finally stop watching. I will look for The Doctors on Retro’s.

Jimh(leave it to beaver) if you have retro tv as an OTA station as most markets do then just get a converter box and use another tv to watch. That’s what i’m going to do because TimeWarner dropped the station.

I don’t think retrotv are allowed to put The Doctors online. Online media is not in their contract .

My only regret is my dear Mother and Aunt Annie are not here to watch this. It was the background of their lives as they raised my siblings and me! How they loved the show.

They don’t make ’em like that anymore!

Good Luck !!!!

When I was in 7th grade we took a tour of the NBC studio in in NYC. I saw Gerald Gordon in the lab. He waved to me and looked as if I recognized him. Will never forget that day.

Judith expressed to all that helped her have a successful career: “The fact is, if you were not in my life, the dream of this little girl sitting alone in her room in Trenton, N.J., reading plays and acting out Shakespeare passages, would never have come to pass. All of you have made and are continuing to make the powerful difference in my life and the lives of so many others  So, I say to all of you with deep and profound gratitude, thank you.  You remind me of who we all really and truly are. We are each other’s star.”

DARK SHADOWS Sequel In Development By CW

What would a re-imagined Dark Shadows look now in 2020?  Well, the CW and Warner Bros Television have made a deal to develop the once uber popular ABC cult classic soap opera that aired from 1966-1971.

Now in development, the new Dark Shadows would be an hourlong.  According to Deadline, the pilot will be written by Mark B. Perry (Revenge, Ghost Whisperer and Brothers & Sisters.), so he definitely knows how to write a solid twist and turn soap.

The new Dark Shadows will be a modern-day continuation of the strange, terrifying, and sexy saga of the Collins family of Collinsport, Maine — a mysterious, influential, publicity-shy group hiding a ghastly secret: For the past 400 years, they’ve lived under a curse that bedevils their blue blood with every imaginable supernatural creature and horror.

The most notable and identifiable character of them all, was of course, Barnabas Collins played by Jonathan Frid.

In a statement, Mark Perry said of bringing back Dark Shadows: “As a first-generation fan, it’s been a dream of mine to give Dark Shadows the Star Trek treatment since way back in the ’80s when Next Generation was announced, so I’m beyond thrilled and humbled to be entrusted with this resurrection.”  He went on to say: “My plan is to take as few liberties as possible with the Dark Shadows canon, while bearing in mind a quote from a 1970s episode delivered by the inimitable Oscar-nominee Grayson Hall as Dr. Julia Hoffman: ‘The Collins family history is not particularly famous for its accuracy.’”
