Sometimes soap actors have trouble using the language and skills of the professions they play especially doctors and lawyers. Their job isn’t to actually be like real doctors, but to look like people’s ideas of what cool doctors are supposed to look like. For example, take a look at this public service announcement featuring a gathering of top former TV doctors across the decades.

Another TV doctor, in this case Rob Lowe shows the difference between how real doctors would put on latex gloves and how a TV doctor does it.


Watch for this TV doctor trick, the TV doctor poses above, and other doctor tricks from soap opera. Can you think of any others?
