Story lines in individual episodes revolve around things like Sinclair's jealousy over the amount of fan mail others are getting, her reaction to a scandal rag story about her, and her co-star's problems with his ex-wife's alimony. In one episode Sinclair sneaks off for some cosmetic surgery leaving the rest of the cast thrilled at her absence and speculating about what might be wrong with her. In another, she forces her producer to hire an inept young actor she fancies only to discover he's gay. Sub-plots deal with things like late contract renewals and product placement. If Dr. Willoughby doesn't quite rise to the level of shows like Ricky Gervais' Extras or The Larry Sanders Show, both of which deal with similar material, it does a nice job on its own terms.
The DVD from Acorn has all six episodes on a single disc which runs approximately 144 minutes. Subtitles are available, but there is no bonus material.
