Who is Your Favourite “Doctor for Pretend?”

Let’s face it: we love our medical dramas. There’s just something unique and interesting about them. Forget the fact that the medicine and science is sometimes poorly done, we just cannot get enough of them. Of course there are also doctors beyond medical dramas. And that gives us a lot of options.

In recent times my favourite doctor is probably Dr. James Wilson from House. Portrayed by Robert Sean Leonard, I could really relate to his final season story arc. My favourite cartoon doctor is still Dr. Zoidberg. 

So who is your favourite on-screen, “doctor for pretend?” Leave your answers below.
