Doctors is taking a two-week break on BBC Entertainment from Monday 22nd April – Friday 3rd May. This is to reflect the way the series is scheduled in the UK, where it regularly takes time off during the summer months.
During this time, viewers will be able to catch every episode of the classic BBC sitcom Fawlty Towers, with Doctors returning on Monday 6th May.
Call the Midwife follows the nurses and nuns from Nonnatus House convent, who visit the expectant mothers of Poplar, providing the poorest women with the best care. This series sees the nuns receive an SOS call from a mission hospital in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Under the hot sun, the Nonnatus family face some of their toughest challenges yet.
Back in Poplar, the rather austere Sister Ursula is appointed the new head of Nonnatus House, demoting Sister Julienne to an ordinary member of staff. She is not the only one to face challenges closer to home. Series 6 sees the nuns and nurses laugh together and cry together, supporting each other as never before.
The global phenomenon returns, with Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat's spectacular final series. Bill Potts works in the canteen, but she's the most intelligent person in the university. So when Bill bursts into the Doctor's life, he gives her an education only he can offer. Along with the Doctor's friend Nardole, they face sinister emojibots who smile as they obliterate, decaying monks wielding an ominous ancient truth, and one of the Doctor's oldest adversaries - the Mondasian Cybermen.
As well as this, deep below the Doctor's quarters, something lies locked in a vault. Something the Doctor fears, but cannot live without. These adventures will test the Doctor's resolve in terrifying new ways. But he will always fight for what's decent and kind.
The Bafta-winning bureaucracy satire returns with Hugh Bonneville at the helm as Ian Fletcher, the BBC's Head of Values, trying his best to set a steady course. This time the stakes are higher than ever as the BBC's Royal Charter is up for renewal, and Ian must implement the More of Less initiative.
Meanwhile, Siobhan Sharpe's PR agency has been bought by a Dutch multinational company, allowing her to continue her ineffectual management, vacuous ideas and self-aggrandisement - but for more money. As always, Ian makes it his mission to ensure everything goes smoothly - regardless of how unusual that might be.
