Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman is the much-loved family Western that centres on the adventures of Michaela Quinn, a doctor who lives in the post-Civil War frontier town of Colorado Springs. Moving there after her father, a Boston physician, dies,'‘Dr. Mike as she is known must win over the trust of her new community, who are not exactly thrilled about having a woman doctor.
In Season 3, Mike donates her father's book collection to start a library, but Rev. Johnson has moral objections to some of the volumes. In another episode, Mike offers her surgical expertise to help a disfigured man (Richard Moll), despite the town's view of him as a 'monster'.
Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman weeknights at 6pm.
