Premise

Popular Emmy-winning drama about a sage general practitioner and his headstrong younger partner. In the 1970-71 season, this became the first ABC show to finish first in the Nielsen ratings. Welby was a compassionate traditionalist, and his colleague, Steven Kiley, a more progressive type who seemed to be cynical but really wasn't. Which is probably why the two got along so well, and seldom encountered an ailment they couldn't successfully treat.
