The Case Of Tommy Holmes (Aired October 7, 1942)
Dr. Christian is a long-running radio series with Jean Hersholt in the title role. It aired on CBS Radio from November 7, 1937, to January 6, 1954.[1] In 1956, the series was adapted for television where it aired in syndication until 1957. After Hersholt portrayed the character Dr. John Luke, based on Dr. Allan Roy Dafoe, the obstetrician who delivered and cared for the Dionne Quintuplets, in the 20th Century Fox movie The Country Doctor (1936) and its two sequels. He wanted to do the same role on radio but could not get the rights. He decided to create his own doctor character for radio, and since he was a Hans Christian Andersen enthusiast, he borrowed that name for his character of philosophical Dr. Paul Christian.
