Synopsis

The most remarkable aspect of The Doris Day Show's fifth season is that the new year did not usher in a new format, as had the previous four seasons. Adhering to the "bible" established in season four, Doris Martin (Doris Day) is still a glamorous bachelor girl, working as a reporter for San Francisco-based "Today's World" magazine. Her editor boss remains Cy Bennett (John Dehner), and Jackie Joseph has also been carried over in the role of Bennett's nutty secretary Jackie Parker. By way of a "change," more emphasis is placed on Doris' romantic life, with the omnipresence of her current boyfriend, Dr. Peter Lawrence (Peter Lawford), as well as several other eligible Rock Hudson-type bachelors. Even if the ratings for The Doris Day Show had improved markedly from the series' fourth season -- which they hadn't -- the fifth season had already been predetermined to be the series' swan song. Having never wanted to do a sitcom in the first place (she had been committed to the project by her late husband-manager Martin Melcher), Doris Day exited the show bearing her name the moment that her contractual commitment came to an end. ~ Hal Erickson
