Robin Nedwell and Geoffrey Davies demonstrate the magic that exists between their respective 'Doctor' characters. Geoffrey portrays himself as the usual cheating, lying, conniving and manipulative womanising gambler. Robin plays the usual combination of responsible, caring doctor, and over-the-top party-boy.
