Dr Finlay's Casebook: The Complete BBC Series 1  (DVD)
All 12 episodes of the first series of the popular 1960s medical drama starring Bill Simpson and Andrew Cruickshank.
Based on the novella Country Doctor by A. J. Cronin. Two doctors and their unflappable housekeeper Janet deal with the daily trials and tribulations at a medical practice in a Scottish village during the aftermath of WW1.
Set in a local medical practice in the fictional post-war Scottish village of Tannochbrae during the 1920s, this BBC medical drama became one of the most popular programmes of the 1960s, and inspired other popular series such as Doc Martin and All Creatures Great and Small.
The series follows the experienced and mildly conservative Dr Cameron (Andrew Cruickshank) and his adventurous and enquiring junior partner Dr Finlay (Bill Simpson), and the daily struggles they face looking after patients at the Arden House medical practice. Both doctors frequently clash over preferred methods of dealing with patients, with Cameron preferring traditional medicine to Dr Finlay's more contemporary methods.
