Dr Finlay’s Casebook is a delightful collection of episodic stories of Dr Finlay and his life in the fictional Scottish village of Tannochbrae during the inter-war years and based on A.J. Cronin’s own experiences as a doctor. The BBC went on to dramatise these stories on both television and radio during the 1960s and 1970s, with the television adaptation drawing weekly audiences of 12 million viewers. The characters were revived by ITV from 1993-96 and were adapted again for BBC radio in 2001 and 2002. This omnibus edition of Doctor Finlay of Tannochbrae and Adventures of a Black Bag revive Cronin’s masterpiece for a contemporary audience - stories which are tragic, funny and wry and which are a celebration of Cronin’s tremendous talent.
