Dr Legg, the Square's Jewish Doctor, was born in London in 1920, his father being Gregory Legg. Harold's grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Europe. In his youth, and still later in life, he was good friends with Lou and Ethel. During the Second World War he lived with his wife, Judith (Who was also good friends with Lou and Ethel) although she was killed while hanging out washing during an air-raid. Dr Legg went to medical school in the early 1940s where he met his wife.
Dr Legg was the local doctor when EastEnders began in 1985, appearing in Episode 1 (19th February 1985) onwards to 1989 followed by recurring appearances after that. He ran the surgery which was in Albert Square. He was a kind and caring doctor but could get stressed at times, occasionally letting things slip his mind. At one stage in 1986 he forgot to shut the surgery window during a lunch break, which led to burglars slipping in and raiding the prescription cabinet, taking some morphine, causing an investigation by the Police, led by Detective Sergeant Roy Quick.
By the 1990s his appearances became less frequent. In 1993 he hired Mandy Salter and Aidan Brosnan to do cleaning but Mandy kept stealing drugs and equipment from him. Dr Legg sacked her in December 1993. He appeared in 1994 and spoke to Richard Cole. He retired officially in 1997 aged 77. He last appeared in Episode 3364 (8th June 2007) to see Dot.
