Summary

Ready with his black bag, Dr Finlay sets out to remedy all manner of ailments suffered by his patients in the Scottish Highland town of Levenford.

In this complete BBC Radio collection, we meet the surprising Dr Finlay as he is welcomed to the practise with a black eye. Over the course of these series the early years of Dr Finlay are explored, as he gets to grips with the locals in the Scottish Highland town of Levenford. His patients range from the stingiest and most cunning widow in Scotland to a pantomime actress, and from a hen-pecked husband who disappears to the wife of a football hero. Then there are the Scobie sisters, who have managed to live together for 15 years without speaking. Finlay tackles them all with compassion and his trademark Scottish humour.

Starring John Gordon Sinclair as Scotland's most celebrated doctor, along with Brian Pettifer, Celia Imrie, David Tennant and Stella Gonet. 

Produced by Jeremy Howe and Vic Beeby.
