She dispenses advice, discipline, humor and wisdom to her family, something that was usually reserved for the TV Dads of the era.In the premiere episode, Donna hopes to get away to a ski weekend with her brood, but pediatrician husband Alex's on-call schedule makes this tricky, especially since one of his young patients, Eddie Barclay (played by one of the Corcoran siblings of Disney film and TV fame; sister Noreen was on ""Bachelor Father"" with John Forsythe), has a mysterious illness and Alex doesn't want to leave him in the care of another doctor.
