Not by the BBC
24 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

To add to the previous comment, only the original Dr Findlay's Casebook was made by the BBC.

The remake Dr Findlay was not - it was made by Scottish Television.

The new version is now available in the USA on DVD.

Unfortunately the original does not seem to be available anywhere.

The original by A J Cronin was of course just a short story and the TV versions are really new works using the characters from this story.
