FOCUS Online : you always emphasize that the “mountain doctor,” will probably never find a woman. There is really no hope? The spectator does not wish for sure a Happy ending…
Hans Sigl: I emphasize, it is not so. The figure seems to be so created. The Alternative would be, Martin Gruber with a Maxi Cosi in practice, and this is not the character, conceived by the authors. The loneliness is part of Martin Gruber and the search for happiness as well. This is a great projection surface. dpa/Ursula Düren, The “mountain doctor”-Team: Heiko Ruprecht (l-r), Ronja Forcher, Monika Baumgartner, and Hans Sigl. the FOCUS Online : What do you mean, why are the viewers of the series hold for so long now Loyal to?
Hans Sigl: I think that we offer the audience a certain amount of continuity. On the Basics, you can rely on: The family, the grandiose scenery, the funny moments with Martin’s friend Alexander Kahnweiler, and always emotional, dramatic case histories. In addition, we have the great fortune to be since the age of 12 in the regular cast unchanged. The authenticity and familiarity. It is also a matter of Confidence and empathy, which are, as such, in our society, a topic.
FOCUS Online : the direction In which the series has developed since the beginning – what is very different today than it was then?
Hans Sigl: a Lot! The relationship between Martin Gruber, and Alexander Kahnweiler has changed, for example, completely. In the first season, they were antagonists, yet, could not stand each other and have fought minor power struggles. Quickly we noticed, however, that Mark Keller and I understand us so well that we wanted to make the two dear friends. This is well-managed.

Also important is the development of Martin in his dealings with the patients was us. He is very empathetic and engaged, but over the years, he has also become more direct, faced his patients with the facts, without embellishing it. I think that is a good deal, because only those who know what is really up to, can join in the common struggle for healing. On the technical side, there are the most significant changes.

The biggest “mountain doctor”-cliché the cliché of it all
FOCUS Online is The largest “mountain doctor”cliché is quite clear…?
Hans Sigl: The cliché that the series is a bit of a cliché. We crooners-TV. That we show only in an ideal world. All of this claim, however, usually only those who have never seen an episode. And I think that’s also a challenge to the audience of your learned and wrong opinion to get out and pick up.
