Dr Finlays Casebook Series 5,6 and 7 [DVD]
All surviving episodes from series 5-7 of the beloved BBC classic medical drama.
Based on the novel Country Doctor by A.J.Cronin, and set in 1920s Scotland. Starring Bill Simpson and Andrew Cruickshank.
The sleepy Scottish village of Tannochbrae has more than its fair share of dramas.
Dr Finlay (Bill Simpson) works as a junior partner in the local village medical practice, in a town full of gossip and patients with a variety of ailments. He works for the slightly stern and stuffy Dr Cameron (Andrew Cruickshank), with whom he frequently disagrees on the best treatment for his patients.
Cameron favours traditional methods of medicine, and clashes with Finlay's preference to try new techniques. Their unflappable and reliable housekeeper and receptionist Janet (Barbara Mullen) is sure to keep them in check.
Dr Finlay's Casebook was one of the most loved programmes the BBC have produced, with the handsome Bill Simpson even getting his own fan club! It now provides a peaceful break from the hard-hitting and intense medical dramas of today, while inspiring other shows about local doctors such as Doc Martin.
Running Time: 700 minutes
