Heather's American Medicine

Michelle Gomez, who played the female incarnation of the Master in Doctor Who and who is about to feature in a new HBO series, The Brink, with Tim Robbins and Jack Black, stars in a new online comedy series called Heather’s American Medicine playing the title role of an agony aunt. You know the type; hard-talking, virtuous and holier-than-thou.

In each episode the requests for advice (in the form of a video problem) are seemingly straightforward but, not one to hold punches, Heather just can’t help herself and deals with each in her own special, acidic way.

The truth is Heather reflects us all - part rational, part emotional, part reason, part animalistic – but her hell bent determination to suppress all inner derives makes for great “break out moments” when they just cannot and will not be denied any longer!

In fact Heather is so afraid that her moral weakness could identify her for the flawed character she really is, that her neurotic over compensatory mechanism challenges others to be better with a fevered passion she’ll never relate to. Freud would be pleased.
