In defense of the "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" (CBS) wedding episode, it was delightful and warm, funny and loving. Mike and Sully did not consummate their vows at the end of the show. They were kissing and showing their love for each other in a tender and loving way. I hope to see this side of their relationship a lot in the coming year now that they are man and wife. Linda B. Gleeson, Van Nuys

When author and journalist Sara Davidson returned to the West Coast from the east in the mid-'70s, friends warned her that she would be writing a screenplay within a year. In fact, it took two. Davidson, who has been co-producer of the CBS-TV hit "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman," will be the featured speaker of the Ventura County Writers Club in Thousand Oaks on Tuesday.

I wasn't going to watch "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman," after reading Howard Rosenberg's stinging review of the script (" 'Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman' Is Bad Medicine," Jan. 1). But when I was remote-searching for something else I paused at this show, because, as a scriptwriter, I was curious to see where the writer had gone wrong. Enjoying the story, my husband and I stayed with the show for two hours, and we look forward to the next episodes. Refreshingly, except for a brief fight in defense of the woman doctor threatened by four bully men, there is no violence.

I'm a fan and admirer of "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" (Jane Seymour). I hope her series continues for many more years. I've learned so much from the people in this little Colorado town. Initially I liked only a few of the characters; now I've "adopted" the whole cast as my family. It's so good to go home on Saturday nights and enjoy a wonderful show. Keep it on the network! (I was somewhat concerned when i heard that "Dr. Mike" was having twins (real life)--concerned for her health and the show, but thank God both have worked out beautifully.

For a struggling network that has lost its top ranking, major league football and a president in the last year, a little divine intervention would have seemed in order. So it should have been good news after third-place CBS received ratings from heaven during the past two weeks from an unexpected source--the comedy-drama "Touched by an Angel," which has been on and off the air in different time periods since its debut last fall. Many had already written it off as being dead in the water.

Kudos to Greg Braxton for the article on "Under One Roof" ("Drama of a Different Color," March 12). I happen to be a longtime fan of Thomas Carter's directing and producing work from episodes of "St. Elsewhere," "Hill Street Blues," "A Year in the Life" and "Equal Justice." I have waited a very long time for him to get another shot at dramatic television, and having been in the audience at the Black Filmmakers Foundation's screening last June, I know that this is it. I have never been so moved by a show that contained such realism and truth.

Would you want your 10-year-old to watch a sitcom in which the star makes a joke about jailhouse sodomy? Kurt and Cindy Kassebaum wouldn't, and thus won't let their daughter Danica watch CBS' "The Nanny" on Monday nights at 8. Fran Drescher, who plays the title role, delivered the gag on the Sept. 25 episode by way of dissing the boyfriend of the girl she cares for: "I hope he ends up in Attica with a cellmate who finds him attractive." Granted, the carefully worded reference probably sailed over the heads of most adolescents tuned in. But "The Nanny" teemed with enough blatant sexual dialogue and adult situations, the Kassebaums said, to make it way out of line for the 8-9 p.m. hour when Danica and her 6-year-old sister, Courtney, are allowed to watch the tube.

Don't fret if you catch a guy with longish brown hair and blue eyes staring at you. It just might be "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman' "s heartthrob, Joe Lando. "I've always watched people," says Lando, 31. "I'd sit back and check people out, especially at airports. Now you can't do that as much because you look at somebody and they look back at you. All of a sudden, they're thinking, 'Where do I know him from?' And you're thinking, 'Do they recognize me or do they think I'm just weird?'

Dismayed by the cancellation of a beloved television show four months ago, die-hard fans of "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" are planning a Sept. 28 rally at CBS headquarters in Los Angeles to prod the network into resurrecting the program. Supporters of the western show, set in a small Colorado town in the late 19th century, miss the historical plots, moral values and progressive themes of "Dr. Quinn," said Parrish Todd, an Agoura Hills fan who lives near Paramount Ranch, where the show was filmed.

CBS announced its prime-time schedule for the coming TV season last week, dropping "Dr. Quinn" from the Saturday lineup. Instead, the network will move "Early Edition" into the 8 p.m.

Jonelle Allen's character on "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" has never had it easy. Grace has suffered the emotional pain of infertility, battled racism as she and her husband struggle for acceptance as blacks in 1870s Colorado, and now this: the death of her son. The boy's death culminated the emotionally charged episode of the CBS drama that kicked off the November TV ratings period. "Dr. Quinn," now in its sixth season, consistently wins its 8 p.m.

Wagons were rumbling by and cowboys swaggered along the boardwalk when, suddenly, murmurs of anticipation rippled among the clutch of women gathered under an enormous oak: Hank the bartender and Jake the barber were about to duke it out over Teresa the schoolteacher.

Orson Bean is laughing with an actor, his back to the stage--unaware that the rest of the cast is standing in place, waiting to rehearse. Since Bean is the director, everyone is on standby until he's ready. "You have to wait for Orson's jokes," his wife, actress Alley Mills, dryly observes. The company laughs in agreement.

JANE SEYMOUR, an Emmy Awards nominee for her starring role in the CBS series "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman," and her husband, James Keach, who directed the Emmy-nominated performance, are putting their country house in England up for lease at $10,000 a week. "I've owned it for almost 12 years now," Seymour said by phone from her Malibu home, "and I do miss not going there this summer." The couple, married about a year ago, has been busy with their children, charities and work.

Two milestones are approaching as "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" ends its third season on CBS: A real train pulls into the show's Western town for the first time and, when it leaves, so does the country doctor's virginity. "As you know, Dr. Quinn is the oldest living virgin on TV," says a smiling Jane Seymour, the show's 44-year-old star, standing next to her series' new huffing-and-puffing steam locomotive.

If you're a "MASH" fan, you probably remember the opening scene on the TV show when the helicopter carrying wounded soldiers lands on a dusty plateau in the back country of Korea. It was not really Korea, though. The show was filmed on a rugged stretch in the Santa Monica Mountains, now part of Malibu Creek State Park near Agoura Hills.

Fred Rogers, host of PBS' long-running children's series "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," turns up as a guest star on the Feb. 17 episode of "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman." CBS says it's the first time Rogers has had a guest-starring role on a TV series. He plays a clergyman--not a reach, since he really is an ordained Presbyterian minister.
