Set during the 1920s, this series sees Bill Simpson returning as the adventurous and forward-thinking Dr Finlay, now firmly established in the community, working alongside the orthodox Dr Cameron (Finlay’s senior partner in their practice), played by Andrew Cruickshank. Janet, their unflappable housekeeper, played by Barbara Mullen, is courted by the irascible Dr Snoddie, played by Eric Woodburn, who disparages Finlay’s modern methods at every opportunity he gets.
First broadcast in 1962 Dr Finlay’s Casebook became a cult sensation by 1965. The famous theme tune was Trevor Duncan’s march from A Little Suite, which Time Out Magazine has cited as ‘one of the best TV theme tunes ever’!
