Episode 1

The Gold Buddha moved out of the Consulting

a similar sized White Buddha appeared.  For this
series it sat on the top shelf of the cabinet in the
back corner.  It was visible in every episode and
never moved.

For the Christmas Special filmed between

In Series 4 the White Buddha moved out of the
Consulting Room and into the Living Room.  It
sat on top of a large Asian cabinet next to the
front door.

In Episodes 2, 3, 4 & 5 there were no shots of
that area, but it was still in the same place in
Episodes 6 & 7.

Early in Episode 1 when Martin walks back
to his desk after examining Louisa (for her
fainting spell) the White Buddha is sitting
on top of a small wooden cabinet that is
sitting on top of a small wooden table.
.
Later in the episode, when Martin is
talking to Alison, it has moved down to
the tabletop.
.
Episode 2

It was up and down all through this episode.  It
started out down on the table when Martin threw
Mandie out of his office and when he drew
Louisa's blood.
.
Episode 3

Starting in Episode 3 (and continuing for the rest
of the series) they removed the wooden table
with the small wooden cabinet and replaced it
with a wooden cabinet with a small wooden box
on top.

The White Buddha sat on the cabinet top for
Episodes 3, 4, 5 & 6.

Episode 7

Near the beginning of the episode, when Martin
was talking to Mr Elliott, the White Buddha had
moved to atop the small wooden box.  You could
also see it there when he took the call from
Louisa.
.
.
.
.
Louisa's call was about Isobel's eye injury from
the party popper, so she was sent right over to
the Surgery.

There were no shots of that back wall during
Isobel's exam, but as she walked out to the
Waiting Room you could just make out that the
White Buddha had moved back down to the
tabletop.
.
Martin and Roger walked back into the
Consulting Room to talk and there it was
sitting back on the tabletop.
.
But when Mandie was back, as Martin walked
away from the exam table it was back on top of
the cabinet.
.
By the end of the episode when he was doing
Bert's EKG it was back down on the tabletop.
