Dr Finlay (Bill Simpson) is the junior partner of Dr Cameron, a slightly stuffy senior practitioner (Andrew Cruickshank). The town is forever rife with gossip and medical mishaps, and the pair depend on their level-headed housekeeper and receptionist Janet (Barbara Mullen).

Dr Finlay’s Casebook and the irrepressible residents of Tannochbrae have become so well-loved that there is even a Bill Simpson Fan Club.
Series 8 is finer than ever. New goings-on include some reckless driving, intimidating husbands, mysterious young deaths, an Indian Governor and much much more!

First broadcast in 1962 the drama had become a cult sensation by 1965. A Bill Simpson Fan Club was set up and Andrew Cruikshank was invited to the British Medical Association’s annual dinner to speak on medical matters as if he were a real GP!

The show’s success was down to excellent casting and compelling storylines that will have you coming back time and time again…
