KXAN visited the hospital in Pigeon Forge where Dr. Robert was filmed and found the real-life doctor who inspired the character still working there. He's also fighting to change the system that allowed a dangerous surgeon like Christopher Duntsch to keep practicing.
The song was recorded on a single four-track tape, and the final preliminary mono mix created for this session omitted the third verse and bridge as the released versions eventually did.
Dr. Robert Leeds
Miranda Hobbes has filed through her fair share of men on Sex and the City, but arguably none have been as memorable as her rom-com boyfriend, Dr. Robert Leeds. The flame-haired attorney’s tart-tongued beau, played by Blair Underwood, has been a TV vet for over 20 years.
Leeds believed that the drug cartel had infiltrated his father’s business and were turning it into a drug distribution system. He heard Majan and Duboise on the company’s walkie-talkies discussing their plan to kill him and decided to take matters into his own hands. Despite having been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, Leeds was found not guilty by reason of insanity. The jury was erroneously instructed not to consider the consequences of an insanity verdict. Psychiatric testimony is generally unreliable.
Dr. Blair Underwood
Blair Underwood is an accomplished actor, producer and doctor. He is best known for his role as the upscale attorney Jonathan Rollins on L.A. Law and for his work as a champion for civil rights.
He is also the founder and director of AIDS Healthcare Foundation's Blair Underwood Clinic, which offers free testing, treatment and healthcare to those with HIV and AIDS. Underwood's activism has earned him many awards and accolades, including a lifetime achievement award from YouthAIDS in 2003.
In addition to acting, Underwood is also a licensed physician who works as an emergency medicine doctor in a busy hospital in Colorado. He has numerous credits on television and in film and theater, including series regular roles on Dirty Sexy Money, The New Adventures of Old Christine, In Treatment and L.A. Law.
Dr. Miranda Hobbes
When we first catch up with Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) in And Just Like That, she's become a successful lawyer with her own pre-war apartment. She's a smart, self-assured woman who constantly raises the bar for herself.
She's also a woman who loves herself - even if she's a bit salty about it. The abrasive lawyer has chlamydia and a resentment for men in general, but she's still willing to try new relationships.
Her latest relationship is with queer, non-binary podcaster Che Diaz (Sara Ramirez). While the development of a bisexual character in TV is great, the way it's handled here doesn't quite do it justice. The episode skips over the real work that needs to happen in this area. This is a problem we see across the show.
Dr. Steve Leeds
Steve Leeds is the co-editor and technical artist of literary arts publication Spelt magazine, runs West Yorkshire's longest-running monthly poetry event Puzzle Poets Live and is currently working on a critical/creative research project exploring folklore and history in the Calder Valley. He is also the author of two collections of poetry and a pamphlet.
Henderson is a leading expert in the field of geriatrics and has been featured in a number of KXAN investigative reports. He recently appeared on a panel discussion about whether doctors should be required to disclose information about out-of-state disciplinary actions.
He performs about 50 spinal surgeries a year in the Dallas area and says that he is "semi-retired." He has been working with KXAN to make changes to the Texas Medical Board website, so physicians will be required to share any out-of-state disciplinary action.
Dr. Christopher Duntsch
The Dallas neurosurgeon was a fast-talker who endeared himself to patients and referring doctors. He bragged that he was the best, and that he could fix anything.
In 2017, a jury sentenced Christopher Duntsch to life in prison for botching spinal surgeries that left more than 30 patients with permanent injury or death. He also lost his Texas medical license.
One day, Collin County medical examiner Lee Passmore saw a fax in his office from Baylor Plano. It was a report on the death of Kellie Martin, who had died in March 2012. Passmore took the fax to his boss. It contained a gruesome account of what had happened to Martin. He started investigating. He was going to find out who had trained Duntsch.
