The Doctors is a British television series, produced by the BBC between 1969 and 1971.

The series was set around a general practice in north London and leading cast members included: Justine Lord, Nigel Stock, Barry Justice, Richard Leech, Isla Blair and Lynda La Plante (billed as Lynda Marchal).

Nigel Stock's character, Dr. Thomas Owens, was the lead in a later spin-off series, Owen, M.D., which aired between 1971 and 1973. Theme music to Owen, M.D. was "Sleepy Shores" by the Johnny Pearson Orchestra. This spin-off is best known nowadays for a parody which appeared in a 1973 episode of The Two Ronnies.

Most of the episodes produced are missing from the archives; 139 of the 160 shows are thought to be lost.[1].
