    Dr. Alan Finlay is still a student doctor, eagerly awaiting his final exam results. He is keen to apply for a post as a surgeon, and to marry his young nurse girlfriend. When his landlord begins to behave eccentricly, it looks for all the world as though he is in the middle stages of a serious mental breakdown. When the man turns up at Tannochbrae, with symptoms of amnesia, he is examined by Cameron. Finlay is aghast when Cameron dismissed the man as faking his illness.

However, Sir William tells Finlay he gets too involved with his patients, and not suited for the operating theatre.
