The hot docs of Mercy Hospital are back in the highly anticipated follow-up to last year's TVB medical drama The Hippocratic Crush.

Riding on the drama's hype, the producers served up the sequel just 11/2 years after the first series aired - thankfully, with much of the original cast intact.

The Hippocratic Crush II premiered on Monday in Hong Kong, and is available on cable TV here.

There's much ado about an addition to the roster, veteran actor Lawrence Ng, whose role as Dr Paul Ching in classic medical drama Healing Hands (1998) is seared into the mind of audiences.

Returning to TVB after leaving in 2006, the bespectacled Ng puts on his familiar white coat and turns into a pathology specialist, Dr Lokman.

Still, all eyes are on the pumped-up love-line of the audience's favourite on-screen couple - Dr Cheung Yat Kin (Kenneth Ma), who finally tied the knot with Dr Fan Tsz Yu (Tavia Yeung).
