Storyline

The scene is Yeoman's Hospital, set in the English Midlands, soon after the NHS was founded. Sophie Dean, a young and gifted surgeon, is torn between her love for pathologist Dr Neil Mariner, and a prestigous post in London. Mariner's research is on penicillin-resistant infection, and whilst drawing blood from a young boy with septicaemia, he inadvertently infects himself. The boy dies, and Neil becomes seriously ill - his experimental serum might save him, and he asks Sophie to give him the serum if there is no other hope - but if she does,she could be charged with manslaughter if Neil dies. Fortunately he is saved, and Sophie decides her future is with Neil. The film is by turns humorous, moving and dramatic with superb attention to detail. It is the archetype of medical dramas right up to the present day. Written by Nandu Thalange

Excellent film
6 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a Petula Clark fan I was interested to see this movie,and having watched it a few times now even if Petula wasn't in it,I would say it is an excellent British movie of its era ,and paved the way for British hospital TV dramas such as Emergency Ward Ten in the 60's through to "Casualty" in the 21st century. The acting by the whole cast is superb ,and I would love to see this movie on DVD and hope that one day it will get the recognition it deserves. Googie Withers is a very under-rated actress and plays her part to perfection,and great to see many good performances from James Donald,Moira Lister,and Jean Anderson. This film rarely gets shown on TV so write in to your TV stations to get it shown!
