Small Buddhas
.
.
The Gold Buddha and White Buddha are very easy to spot in the background of scenes in The Surgery.  
Less noticeable are some smaller Buddhas that show up in the kitchen and the Consulting Room.

I may be wrong about this, but I believe there are just two of these small Buddhas - one a little taller
than the other with the hands resting on the knees and the shorter one with the hands resting in the lap.

There is also one Buddha head statue that was first seen in Series 4.

Series 1
.
.
In Series 1 the two small Buddhas made their first appearance on the kitchen windowsill.
They weren't there in the only kitchen scene in Episode 1, but of course, Martin was still
unpacking.  After Episode 1, the only filmed kitchen scenes were in Episode 3 and
Episode 5 - and both the tall and short Buddhas were visible in those episodes.

This is not technically one of the

both Episodes 5 & Episode 6.

Series 2

In Series 2, both were moved into the Consulting Room.  The taller one was placed on the
mantle and the short one was in the back corner at the right end of a shelf above the cabinet.

The short one was difficult to see much of the time because it is a dark corner, but it was
very visible in Episode 3.

In the Christmas Special between

short one was on a secretary behind
Martin's desk.

Series 3

In this series the two Buddhas start out back in the kitchen.  This time the tall one is at the
far right side of the right window.  But the small one is across the room on the hutch,
nestled among the china.  The small one stays put all series long, but the tall one travels as
you will see below.

About halfway through the
episode, the tall one has
disappeared from the
windowsill.  But it appears
in the front corner of the
Consulting Room
.
In Episode 3 it's gone from
the Consulting Room and
back on the Kitchen
windowsill.  It remains
there the rest of the series.

Series 4

In Series 4, the small one has gone back into the Consulting Room and sits on the mantle for
the entire series.  The tall one has disappeared and I have not seen it again through Series 8.

There is a new one though - just a Buddha head and it appears to be made out of some type of
polished stone.  It starts out on Martin's desk and moves to the mantle in Episode 4.

In the back corner of the Consulting Room, an
area that is often very dark, there are some
figurines that could be mistaken for the missing
sitting Buddha.  But in one of the episodes
there is enough light to identify that they
appear to be a trio of warrior statues.

In Series 5, the small one appears inside the cabinet in the back corner of the Consulting
Room in Episode 6 and remains there through the rest of the Series.  It does not appear in
Series 6 or in Series 7, but reappears in Series 8.

The small Buddha head has moved from the Kitchen to the Living Room.  All series long it is
perched on top of books on the cabinet in the front corner of the Living Room.

Series 8
.
.
The small Buddha head is still in the same place from Series 7 - on top of the cabinet in the
front corner of the Living Room.  

But one of the other small Buddhas makes its first appearance since Series 5.  You can just
catch a glimpse of it all series long in the very dark cubbyhole in the Consulting Room.
