Misunderstanding about “Riverboat”: In a conversation with “Der Bergdoktor” star Heiko Ruprecht, Kim Fisher made several mistakes. The host had trouble identifying the actors and their roles by name.
Leipzig – Even in its now, believe it or not, 16th season, “The mountain doctor” reliably millions of viewers. Because with Dr. Martin Gruber (Hans Sigl, 53) and her loved ones going crazy, Kim Fisher (53) and her new co-moderator Klaus Brink Bäumer (56) welcomed actor Heiko Ruprecht (50 ). Since the beginning of the series in 2008, he has played Hans Gruber, the brother of the title hero. But even though the ZDF doctor series has been running for 16 years, Kim Fisher still doesn’t seem to know exactly who is who in “Bergdoktor”.
Kim Fisher makes a false step in “Riverboat”: confuses the names of the actors of “Bergdoktor”
Kim Fisher was surprised when she greeted Heiko Ruprecht in “Riverboat”: “The ‘Bergdoktor’ has been around for 16 years. And people love stories!” praised the 53-year-old ZDF series. But the Gruber brothers not only provide the best entertainment, but also all kinds of confusion, at least for the moderator: “See, I’m getting confused: How can a Hans Sigl play a Martin? And a Heiko Hans?” Fisher asked the actor after she had already confused the names of the two brothers during her introduction.
The name mix-up made the “Riverboat” host shake his head: “You must be crazy!” he commented on his misstep. His guest was sympathetic, and she reported that this mistake had already been made by the new directors on the set of “Der Bergdoktor”: “You don’t even know who he means. It’s hard, I don’t know what they were thinking either!”
The Many Faces of “Riverboat” – MDR-Talk had nearly three dozen moderators:
Kim Fisher has been on duty at Riverboat since 2014, after the singer hosted the talk from 1998 to 2005. There’s never been a shortage of notable colleagues: Since the show began, nearly three dozen moderators have hosted the show, which originally aired under the name “MDR Club” since January 1992, including Jan Hofer (1992-2012), Michel Friedman (1993-1994), Andrea Kiewel (2007), Ruth Moschner (2010-2013) or Jörg Pilawa (2017-2018). ).
Kim Fisher admits confusion in “Riverboat” – “Bergdoktor” star Heiko Ruprecht reacts calmly
But for Kim Fisher, that was the end of the confusion. When it came to the picturesque alpine backdrop of the ZDF series, the “Riverboat” star made the following mistake: “I was there: I actually visited your Hans there. So the movie-Hans…” the 53-year-old revealed, but then hesitated. “No, the real Hans. Oh my gosh,” corrected the Berlin native, embarrassedly touching her head. Hans Sigl’s fellow actor and serial brother Heiko Ruprecht also took the confusion for a second time: “At some point it gets blurry,” the 50-year-old smiled.
Much more unforgiving are parts of the MDR audience that don’t seem to be really satisfied with the successors to Jörg Kachelmann (64): “Lippert is like Chernobyl,” a “Riverboat” viewer complained about the new cast. Fonts used: “Riverboat” (MDR; episode from January 20, 2023), mdr.de
