    I got to see a few early episodes from the 60s and the show still holds up today…they were more down to earth and charater driven than the remaining four soaps except for TDs remaing few years on the air…i wish other soaps like AW and Edge Of Night still had all there episodes…the 60s and 70s…imo…was when most soaps were at their best…wish a cable channel like POP carried the show so the current soap viewers who werent around back then could see how great soaps used to be…jmho!!!

    It is well known anyone who was back then will say, quite often–

    Ohh the good old days everything was so much better than now..
    Ohhh the good the days, that was when TV was worth watching .. lol
    …………… (( not true, the soaps were lame .. LOL :)
    I hope you enjoy the older soap- The Doctors, if it makes you smile and happy, that is all that matters !
    I would tune in too, if it were shown here I’m open to new experiences..

    Thanks for the info! I saw your post on another site as well and have been watching episodes from Dec 4th since then. :-) Unfortunately, we don’t get RetroTV on DirecTV – it looks as if NYC has it now though so, perhaps, when we change carriers, I’ll be lucky enough to see it. I’d love to see classic Doctor Who on there as well!

    I have been watching sporadically. Acting is good by most, with the exception of the person playing Karen Werner. Wow, shes bad. But I hope it succeeds, as it would be nice to see other soaps rerun on this network. Looking forward to the 70s episodes.

    I was in high school when The Doctors premiered and it was (and still is) my favorite soap! It was on when I got home from school. General Hospital debuted about the same time, I think. I got hooked on that too (remember Jessie and Phil?) but The Doctors was simply more sophisticated in its story lines and character development. I happened to find a few clips on YouTube last night and was pleased to see it is being broadcast on RETRO TV. I live in Cincinnati and am a Time Warner subscriber, but they don’t have it. What can I do? Is there access online to any episodes?
