September 1982 Doherty is cast as Jenny Wilder on "Little House: A New Beginning." "I mean, when you work for Michael Landon, it doesn't get any better than that," she said about the experience. In 1986, Doherty is on the NBC show "Our House." Times critic Howard Rosenberg wrote: "[Wilford Brimley's] first-rate supporting cast includes Doherty as Kris, the 15-year-old with whom Gus has some very appealing moments in the premiere."
