Andrew Manson, a newly trained doctor is established now in Drineffy, a South Wales mining town and has taken on all of his elderly and ailing employer's sick patients.

He remains good friends with the cynical Dr Denny - a flawed genius, and narrator, who observes Manson's very own sickness - 'love sickness'.

Set in the mid 1920s and based on A J Cronin's ground breaking novel, which is said to have partly inspired the creation of the NHS.
