The Best of Marcus Welby, M.D. Season 1Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
Robert Young plays Dr. Marcus Welby, a dedicated family physician who made house calls a priority in life. From week to week Welby was tasked with some of the most devastating disorders and serious situations an M.D. can face, but confronted them with a fierce honesty and dedicated compassion that made him a virtual superhero with a stethoscope. But he couldn’t do it alone. Enter Dr. Steven Kiley, portrayed by the strapping and very new James Brolin in his first regular television role. As any doctor will tell you, looks can be deceiving. The show mixed up the common formula, with the older and wiser Welby embracing the unorthodox treatments while the young gun, Kiley, had the straitlaced approach. The chemistry was electric, and the results were positively award-winning, as both actors earned Emmys for their roles.

For seven seasons there was a doctor who actually seemed to care
There's a reason that this show remained on the air for seven seasons. It was good. It doesn't keep pace with the action on E.R., Trauma, or all of the current shows. However, the doctor and nurses aren't jumping in and out of bed and nobody is smoking anything in the supply closet. Download these and take a trip back to when TV was family friendly and the doctor actually knows the patient's name.
I love Marcus Welby
I love Marcus Welby! Thank you iTunes for making it available. Hope to see more seasons in the future.
pleased to see something of Grace and kindness
I am so pleased to see that I tunes finally got Marcus welby MD. Theis was a great seven seasons of decent television. It what a real doctor and staff is about. However I am pleased to say that in my life even today I have a excellent choice of doctors for me and my family. Some have retired that were from the old school like Dr welby. The new doctors some how cannot mesure up. Its sad to know as they retire we lose the best. The new batch is all about the money . Yes some of them might even know your name but they are in such a hurry. Everbody should just look at the old eposides of Marcus Welby MD and this will show you how good things use to be.
