According to the running schedule for this show, there were 27 episodes shot in the beautiful town of Auchtermuchty, Fife, Scotland. To date, there are three seasons released onto DVD in the UK. This means there are 8 episodes missing - where are they? The DVD sets themselves are nice but the order in which they are released is all over the place. DVD Set One comprises 6 episodes only, and they are: The Return/Working Together/Winning the Peace/A Bitter Pill/Forbidden Fruit and The Good Doctor. Can't find what's on Set Two (why don't online retailers put this info up??) Set Three comprises: Old Flames/Time Will Tell/Private Lives/The Earth's Sweet Being/A Natural Mistake/The Greatness & The Power and No Time for Heroes. I am waiting for set Two to arrive and when it does I'll post it's contents. Why, oh why can't distributors and TV companies work together to get the episodes out in the correct order and not just cherry pick a few eps here and there - we'd like the whole set please.
