Episode Guide

Episode 5 - Series 7

Dr Christian and Nurse Joy Tickle do a double act on the truck in Birmingham tackling some untreatable skin conditions.

In our ‘re-build you’ strand Dr Dawn meets Becky whose body took a young blow following a stroke at just 45. Can the latest electro therapy give Becky back some body function and get her smiling again?

Dr Pixie meets a man with hot testicles that were unbearable to touch- she sends him off to see if multiple procedures could get his balls back in working order. And she’s getting to the bottom of cutting edge surgery techniques using our own anuses.

In Magaluf the week long surveillance continues as we take on the serious side effects of drink spiking with our party foursome. And back in the UK Dr Dawn uses high tech testing to investigate the worrying trend of buying ‘legal highs’ online, trying out the mocked up effects for herself.
