Distant Shores (TV Series)
Distant Shores is a dramedy first shown in the UK on ITV in January 2005. Like the similar fish out of water dramedies, Northern Exposure and Doc Martin, it focuses on the difficulties of an unwillingly-transplanted metropolitan doctor who is forced to adjust to a rural environment.
The show's recurring cast is unusual for featuring major actors from three significant British franchises — Doctor Who, Blakes 7 and the James Bond film series. The programme itself is notable for being a rare example of a show to have an entire series shelved in its country of origin following the completion of post-production.
