Watched the first 4 episodes out of nostalgia really as these were the few I remember watching when the series first aired in 1963.I am afraid it as not aged very well and although Herbert Lom is a great presence in it his character is somewhat unbelievable.I cannot for the life of me imagine a Harley Street psychiatrist running around after his patients like he does.Offering people cigarettes in hospital shows its age more than anything.Also don't talk about diversity - not a black actor in sight.
