Doctor at the Top is a British television comedy series based on a set of books by Richard Gordon about the misadventures of a group of doctors. With episodes written (though not jointly) by George Layton and Bill Oddie, the series follows directly from its predecessor Doctor Down Under, and was produced by the British Broadcasting Corporation in 1991.
In this series the lead characters have all progressed in their careers: Waring and Collier are now surgeons, and Stuart-Clark is a professor.
The series was not as well received as its predecessors and was cancelled after one series. According to Layton, it "depressed the whole nation", and Oddie dubbed it "Doctor Down The Drain".
