Trivia

Between March 1970 and December 1978, the three main actors (plus various supporting cast members) recreated their roles in a BBC Radio 4 adaptation of the series. For the first six series, TV scripts were cut down and adapted for the half-hour running time; from 1976 a further forty were specially written for the final three runs. As with the parent television series, the survival rate is very hit-and-miss. See more »

Wonderful series
8 January 2001 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

I had the good luck to see a number of episodes of this series when it aired on the CBC as a summer replacement when I first moved to Canada. It jumped out at me, as being so superior to any drama series that I had ever seen on American television at the time. The series featured a very slim cast of an elderly doctor, his young partner, the landlady in their house/surgery, and the outsider whose medical condition was the subject of that particular drama. Not unlike "All Creatures Great and Small", with a smaller, interior budget, and more articulate patients. Or, at least, as articulate as rural Scots are likely to be to the North American ear.
