Australia’s favourite doctor is back when Doctor Doctor returns on Monday, August 6, at 8.45pm after The Block on Nine.

This year everything changes and life is about to get a whole lot more complicated for resident bad boy Dr Hugh Knight (Rodger Corser). With his year of exile in rural Whyhope finally over, Hugh’s plans to return to his high-flying city lifestyle are thrown into chaos by a triple threat of family tragedy, financial woes and loves-gone-wrong.

Strap in as Hugh makes every mistake possible while he strives to reunite his feuding brothers, save his family farm and find love – all while trapped in a town he can’t wait to escape from.

An outstanding cast returns for series three: Rodger Corser (Hugh), Nicole da Silva (Charlie), Steve Bisley (Jim), Ryan Johnson (Matt), Tina Bursill (Meryl), Hayley McElhinney (Penny), Matt Castley (Ajax), Chloe Bayliss (Hayley), Charles Wu (Ken), Belinda Bromilow (Betty), Brittany Clark (Mia) and Uli Latukefu (Darren).

Doctor Doctor guest stars Vince Colosimo (Underbelly, Schapelle), who will play Charlie’s (da Silva) long-lost father, and TV Week Logie Award-winning Miranda Tapsell (Love Child, The Sapphires) who plays an old school friend of the Knight brothers. Don Hany (Underbelly, East West 101, Offspring), Andrea Demetriades (Crownies, Janet King, Pulse) and Matt Okine (The Other Guy) will also join the cast.

Doctor Doctor is filmed in Sydney and country NSW and is produced by Easy Tiger Productions for Nine, with the assistance of Create NSW and Screen Australia.
