Doctor Doctor Review
Not a lot happened in the Doctor Doctor finale, but it was satisfying nevertheless. Hugh came to his senses and it seems he has ended his relationship with Harriet. However, he hasn’t managed to seal the deal with Penny. Perhaps that will come in the next season? Hayley and Ajax did get married though. Despite all of their worries, they took the leap of faith.
Rod is back and that will keep Meryl on her toes. There is also a good chance that the next season will bring pregnancies and babies. The finale was cheerful and enjoyable. A 7.5 out of 10 is deserved. Catch up with previous recaps of Doctor Doctor today!
