by N. J. Crisp
Created by A. J. Cronin
starring Andrew Cruickshank, Barbara Mullen, Bill Simpson

with Tracy Reed, Anthony Valentine, John Humphry

Dr. Finlay receives an offer of an appointment at a London clinic and, as things have been a little strained at Arden House of late, Cameron considers it best for all concerned that he accept, especially as the position is of a temporary nature-a month to see if Finlay suits and vice versa.
Both Cameron and Janet doubt whether he will stay the course but they can't foresee that, at a party, he will meet an 'old friend'...
