    James Bolam and Michael French star as father-and-son doctors in the family drama series set in the 1950s, a decade of great change for the National Health Service. GP Arthur Gilder (James Bolam) has lived in the Lancashire village of Ormston all his life. His son Tom (Michael French), also a doctor, works in Manchester. Arthur misses his family and is determined to hand over his practice to Tom. Following in his father's footsteps is the last thing on Tom's mind - until he retraces his steps to the picturesque home where he grew up. On the cusp of change, yet caught in the golden glow of post-war tranquility, the offer proves irresistable. Tom, who's married with four children, faces more than he bargained for by returning to Ormston. He must contend with battles to modernise the surgery and cottage hospital, while Arthur tries to cling on to old-fashioned, tried and tested ways.moreless

    BBC (ended 2003)
    What does it take to drive apparently ordinary human beings to murder? In a BBC season of groundbreaking original movies,Murder in Mind takes viewers on a journey into the psyches of a disparate collection of killers. Exploring the psychology behind the darkest and yet most compelling crime of murder, each of the seven movies explores the ultimate crime through the eyes of the murderer and asks, not whodunit? but whydunit? Cold, calculating and in search of the perfect crime, each killer selects a different method of murder. From euthanasia, contract killing, vigilantes, accidental murder, to the bewildering act of sleepwalking, there is no set formula to the chilling thrillers, only one common theme: death in "suspicious" circumstances. "Murder should be about murderers," insists series creator Anthony Horowitz. "So our first rule was that the killer should take up most screen time. The murderer is the star, not just the plot mechanism." Some murderers appear to escape without retribution, some don't. All however, are driven to kill, they demonstrate a kaleidoscope of human emotions: anger, hatred, bitterness, remorse, guilt, horror; a roller coaster of emotions are on display as each self-contained movie hurtles towards its inevitable conclusion. Each of the seven movies boasts a nail-biting script with breathtaking twists and turns, plus some of the cream of British acting talent.moreless
