There were only 2 seasons of The Eleventh Hour. Both featured Jack Ging as Dr. Paul Graham, a passionate and caring young psychologist, working under the ægis of elder psychiatrists - first played by Wendell Corey and later Ralph Bellamy. While the first year often focused on Dr. Theodore Bassett and court cases, the second season was more concerned with private practice. The series shared a 2-part crossover episode with _ 'Dr. Kildare' (1961-1966)_ in 1963 and clearly used the same basic theme of wise teacher and young intern. Some of the most notable writers and actors in Hollywood participated in this show. Scripts were thoughtful and intense. Given the focus on guest characters, it felt more like an anthology series than episodic drama.Written by

I am watching the whole first season thanks to Warner Archives. I had never seen or heard of this show before, it's very interesting. It features many young stars such as George Takei and Keir Dullea and many famous actors long gone but still wonderful to watch such as Franchot Tone, Burgess Meredith, Henry Jones, George C. Scott and his wife Colleen Dewhurst and of course one of the stars Wendell Corey. It's very different from todays dramas it's more cerebral, no action sequences, no swear words, just interesting well acted plots. Alas, we seem to be stuck with stupid reality shows, ridiculous sitcoms full of sexual innuendo with canned laughter and dramas full of zombies or vampires. While I do enjoy some current programing it seems todays programming has sunk to very low levels. This show is entertaining and informative. The Dr.s are capable, use common sense, and understand the frailty of the human mind. They know that even the most well meaning people can unwittingly cause harm. There are some interesting situations, good writing, and acting.
