The show was initially cancelled after sixteen weeks, as Channel 9's original intention was to continue with either this or network stablemate The Sullivans (1976) (both began transmission during November 1976); however the broadcaster acquiesced to public demand and kept both soaps airing. Delighted, the production team threw a party and make-up artist Patricia Hutchence volunteered her son and his band to provide musical support - consequently a pre-fame Michael Hutchence and INXS performed for the cast and crew at the celebration.

A classic example of endearing, heart - warming 70s serial drama, the charm of The Young Doctors was undoubtedly in its resurgent, ongoing optimism and engaging, yet simplistic story lines and a refreshingly upbeat and idealistic tone that mirrored the era. Conversely, its confined sets added to its appeal in an unassuming, elementary manner whereby somehow familiarity brought forth reassurance. The show exhibited an unfailing attribute to leave the viewer invariably in more cheerful mood at the end of each episode. An array of likable characters formed the backbone to this series, many of whom remained loyal throughout its scheduled run between 1976 and 1982. At the conclusion of its transmission in Australia, it became the country's longest - running serial, although this has subsequently been superseded by Neighbours. A genuinely tearful, evocative last episode typified the warmth and affection of the programme. The series was broadcast in the United Kingdom across the ITV Network in the afternoon, attracting a loyal audience. Increasingly, it represented a pleasing contrast to the arrival of acerbic 80s cynicism.
