Police Surgeon (1972-74)
CIV Production
Sponsor - Golgate
Executive producer - Murray Chercover
Produced by William Schiller, Chester Krumholz
Filmed in Canada

Canadian Medical Police Drama series 1972-74   approx 52 episodes x 30 min color
starring
Sam Groom as Dr. Simon Locke
Len Birman as Lt. Dan Palmer
Larry D. Mann as Lt. Jack Gordon

Premise:
A season 2  revamp for "Doctor Simon Locke" with a change of title to "Police Surgeon" and a change of locale from the cosy country town
world of Dixon Mills to "the big city". The city was never named but although it was filmed in Canada, it could equally have passed
for an American City. High energy storylines and some bigger name American guest stars were introduced to appeal to US syndicators.
