The Dr Will See You Now (Part II) – Tales of the Inexplicable

Following on from 2023’s success at Alexander’s with their hilarious and informative show.. “The Dr Will See You Now – Life As A One Hit Wonder?” The Doctor and his long-suffering guitarist Chris, return for part II.. “Tales of the Inexplicable!”

The show features The Doctor, Clive jackson, delivering tales of Dr and the Medics’s most peculiar history and story to the present day. 

The original show was written during Lockdown in 2020 as a way of getting out to gig again. It worked out well and so now, as well as still performing the original show, they have added “Part II – Tales of the inexplicable!” to their repertoire for venues and audiences that have already experienced the first show. 

The show once again features more tales and tunes from the history of this strange band that has simply refused to lay down and die! We also bring you up to date on their adventures, including the story behind why the new album has taken 19 years (And counting) to complete!

The show features a well-balanced combination of Music and talk with a lot of humour as The Dr takes you on the roller coaster ride of the band’s career.  

We would be delighted to see you at this all seated, up close and intimate show that tries to explain the inexplicable!

Expect the unexpected and you won’t be disappointed!

Love and humility
