The Doctor Makes A Pretty Good Captain

This week, James Dempsey, programmer, podcaster, and band leader, joins Jean to talk about the EMH aka The Doctor. The Doctor’s great range of personality traits, brought to life by the delightful Robert Picardo, make this character one of Star Trek’s most memorable.

The rewatch assignment for this episode is “Tinker Tenor Doctor Spy” (S6E4), which gives The Doctor an opportunity to shine as an opera singer, a painter, and even a spymaster.
