Marjorie and Douglas Maitland have returned to Tannochbrae after spending much of their life in colonial India. Re-adjusting to life at home is not proving easy however. Douglas is in poor health and despite his best efforts can't find work which he puts down to being too old. Depressed, he's drinking too much and he flatly refuses to ask their daughter Brenda for any help. Dr. Napier tries to give him advice, but he is stubborn and won't listen. Meanwhile, Janet and Angus are still recovering from their road accident. Angus seems to be coping better than Janet who is terrified at the prospect of setting foot in the car. She's also upset when Rhoda, who is away at a wedding, fails to write her a letter but does drop a note to Dr. Cameron. Dr. Finlay has to deal with a strange case that he can't quite diagnose.
