Dr Martin Ellingham, Doc Martin - Martin Clunes
Martin Clunes stars as Doc Martin on the hit ITV show
Doc Martin is that guy who’s weirdly hot - you can’t quite put your finger on it, but there’s just something about him. Tightly-wound and buttoned up, Martin plays hard to get with everyone he meets. Whether he’s dismissing a mildly irritating patient or struggling to reveal his true feelings to the lovely Louisa, we can’t help but fall in love with the emotionally-stunted GP.
Dr John Carter, ER - Noah Wyle
Noah Wyle plays Dr John Carter

McDreamy, Grey’s Anatomy - Patrick Dempsey
Patrick Dempsey's character on Grey's Anatomy was nicknamed McDreamy
Oh Mr McDreamy, how we’ve missed you. The definition of tall, dark and handsome, Patrick Dempsey was without a doubt one of the dishiest doctors on Grey’s Anatomy. Flashing those baby blues at his patients whilst making medical lingo sound effortlessly sexy, we have no idea how anyone got any work done with McDreamy on-call…seriously, it’s not possible.
Charlie Fairhead, Casualty - Derek Thompson

The Doctors who were overlooked
In appreciation of all the hot TV doctors who have graced our screens, we couldn’t help but reflect on all of the majorly dishy medics who were overlooked...
Dr Turner, Call The Midwife - Stephen McGann
One half of the iconic duo that is Shelagh and Patrick, we knew that it was love at first sight when Call The Midwife first introduced audiences to Dr Turner.
Dr Chase, House - Jesse Spencer
Sorry, Dr Chase, we didn’t quite catch that - could you repeat the whole thing again in your sexy Australian accent, please? Thank god this doctor only exists in fiction because if he was real, we’d never get anything done. You can go to the doctors for a paper cut, right?
Dr Alex - Love Island
Dr Alex is far too good for this world. Appearing on season 4 of Love Island, the A&E doctor won viewers over with his sensitive side and chilled approach to life in the villa. The kind of guy we’d all bring home to meet the parents, we’re a little bit in love with Dr Alex...
Dr Ranj Singh - Strictly Come Dancing
Since competing on Strictly Come Dancing in 2018, we’ve got a lot of time for this debonair doctor.
Dr Max Goodwin, New Amsterdam - Ryan Eggold
We’d like to thank New Amsterdam for bringing us Dr Max Goodwin - scrubs never looked so good.
Dr Elliot Reid, Scrubs - Sarah Chalke
Sacred Heart’s resident glam girl, Dr Elliot Reid was the definition of goals. Revealing in season 3 that she gets up at 5am every morning to do her hair and makeup, it’s no surprise that the blonde beauty always looked divine.
Dr Jackson Avery, Grey’s Anatomy - Jesse Williams
Two words: Jesse Williams. That is all...
Dr Danny Castellano, The Mindy Project - Chris Messina
We couldn’t get enough of Dr Danny’s love-hate relationship with Dr Mindy in The Mindy Project. Witty and sarcastic, this dreamy doctor makes for a modern-day Mr Darcy, and we’re here for it.
