Trivia

Between March 1970 and December 1978, the three main actors (plus various supporting cast members) recreated their roles in a BBC Radio 4 adaptation of the series. For the first six series, TV scripts were cut down and adapted for the half-hour running time; from 1976 a further forty were specially written for the final three runs. As with the parent television series, the survival rate is very hit-and-miss. See more »

"Dr. Finlay's Casebook" (1962)
9 October 2009 | by scoevemicSee all my reviews

For all those 40+ who lived in the UK in the 1960's, this series will be remembered. Much better than the re-make of the 1990's. Release on DVD? - probably not, but oh what a shame. Dr Finlay, Dr Cameron and Janet the housekeeper - with other characters such as Dr Snoddie. Just to hear the signature tune brings back happy memories of a time where there were better values than we experience in society today. One can view episodes of this series on YouTube. The Scottish accents may make some ex pats home sick - but what's wrong with that? Andrew Cruikshank, who played Dr Cameron appeared in several films during that era - including Miss Marple "Murder She Said" - alongside another good actor - Margaret Rutherford.
