On-screen she is Dr. Willoughby, a compassionate surgeon who saves lives with skill and a scalpel, but offscreen she’s Donna Sinclair, a ruthless actress fighting to control her fading career and the sleazy daytime hospital soap in which she stars.
Joanna Lumley stars as the deliciously bitchy as the aging, vain Donna Sinclair in this hilarious send-up British television. She will stop at nothing to keep her place in the spotlight, from betraying her fellow actors to terrorizing her producer, pilfering toilet paper from the supplies closet and lying her way out of a charity gig. As the conniving, vindictive and utterly insincere Sinclair Lumley steals every scene.
Dr. Willoughby also stars Brian Protheroe as Ralph Whatman, Isobel Middleton as Emma Goodliffe and Paula Bacon as Crystal Reynolds
