Dr Finlay's Casebook Series 3 & 4 (DVD)
Starring: Bill Simpson, Andrew Cruickshank, Barbara Mullen
Tales of medical life and strife in a Scottish village.
12 million people tuned in for the original broadcasts of the BBC's Doctor Finlay's Casebook, and now viewers can rediscover the magic with series three and four on DVD for the very first time!
Bill Simpson stars as the idealist Doctor Finlay, determined to bring a sleepy 1920s Scottish village into the 20th century.
Andrew Cruickshank is the crusty senior Doctor Cameron and Barbara Mullen is the stiff-lipped, unflappable Janet MacPherson, housekeeper at Arden House medical practice.
“Doctor Finlay's Casebook was one of the most popular programmes of the 1960s…excellent casting” – BFI
The team come up against a suspicious car crash, an outbreak of the measles, a soldier in need of an amputation, a local dog infested with rabies and Doctor Finlay tries his hand at hypnosis.
First broadcast in 1962 the drama had become a cult sensation by 1965. A Bill Simpson Fan Club was set up and Andrew Cruikshank was invited to the British Medical Association's annual dinner to speak on medical matters as if he were a real GP!
The show's success was down to excellent casting and compelling storylines that will have you coming back time and time again…
