QDoctor was designed as a full screen microdrive sector editor/checker which firstly checks a microdrive cartridge for errors and then displays the corrupt sectors from the cartridge on screen, so that you can patch the data and retrieve the file.

This is not as complex as the later Cartridge Doctor, but was useful for recovering a deleted file for example.

An early letter from Sinclair Research (undated) refers to a list of QL Software titles including QDoctor, but states the publisher as Ariolasoft

Adder were also said to be working on a disk version (QL User, Summer Software Survey - September 1985), but it is unknown whether this was ever released.
