Dr. Finlay in intrigued by James Geddie, the reclusive owner of a large house who refuses to answer the door when he seeks to use their telephone during a medical emergency. There are many tales of Mr. Geddie but most agree that he is as anti-social as they come. He is seen occasionally walking in the hills but no one that Finlay can find has spoken to him in years. As he looks into it, he concludes that Mr. Geddie does not live alone. The time has come for Dr. Neil to leave Arden House and start his research fellowship at the University. With his departure, Dr. Finlay begins to worry about how he and Dr. Cameron, who has agreed to take on some of the load, will cope. To make matters worse, Dr. Gilmore has decided to leave his practice and retire to join his wife who is staying with relatives while recovering from her recent bout with the bottle.
