Synopsis

By the time The Doris Day Show had entered its fourth season, the series had already undergone two format changes. In the earliest episodes, widow Doris Martin (Doris Day) and her two sons Toby and Billy lived on the rural California farm owned by Doris' Uncle Buck. In season two, Doris began dividing her time between the farm and her new secretarial job at San Francisco-based "Today's World" magazine, where her co-workers included editor Michael Nicholson, assistant editor Ron Harvey and fellow secretary Myrna Gibbons. And in season three, Doris and her sons moved off the farm and into a San Francisco apartment, located above the Italian restaurant owned by Angie and Louie Palucci. All this changed radically as the series swung into season four. Gone are Doris' sons, her uncle Buck, her magazine compadres Michael, Ron, and Myrna, and the Paluccis. As a nod to the popularity of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Doris Martin has been redefined as a slightly more sophisticated Mary Richards type; a swinging bachelorette who is now a full-fledged writer for "Today's World." John Dehner has been installed as Doris' new editor, Cy Bennett; also added to the cast is Jackie Joseph as Bennett's ditzy secretary Jackie Parker. Although the ratings for The Doris Day Show were the lowest ever during season four, the powers-that-be decided to stick with the series' fourth format for its fifth (and final) season. ~ Hal Erickson
