Occupation: Witch Doctor

Dr. Bombay is a warlock, and the family doctor for Samantha's family. As such, he could be rightly called a "witch doctor."

Usually summoned by an incantation such as "Calling Dr. Bombay! Emergency! Come right away!", he would appear in an outrageous costume, appropriate to whatever bizarre activity he had been interrupted doing, with or without the attractive "nurses" whom he romanced. His antidotes for witch diseases and spells gone awry would often cause complications of their own. He usually ended his visits by teleporting away during a burst of laughter at one of his own witticisms. Dr. Bombay apparently served the witch/warlock community under the authority of the Witches Council, since Samantha's Aunt Hagatha once threatened to appeal to the Council to have him replaced. His competition was Dr. Agraphor.

While fond of Samantha, he tends to regard her husband Darrin with little more than amused contempt. Occasionally he plays on Darrin's preconceptions about witches, once declaring, after performing a simple procedure, "I could've worn a black cloak and stirred a steaming cauldron, but you said you were in a hurry!" On another occasion, he ominously demanded Darrin's soul in payment and, in response to Darrin's nervous reaction, said to Samantha, "Bit of a square, isn't he?"

Dr. Bombay appeared twice in Tabitha when she was all grown up and living in Los Angeles. He eventually married his mortal nurse.
