It is 1946 and Dr. John Finlay is finally coming home to Scotland after completing his war service. Much changed as a result of his wartime experiences, he comes back to find that life in his home town of Tannochbrae has also been greatly affected by the events of the last few years. As well as preparing for the imminent retirement of his partner, Doctor Cameron, Finlay is forced to confront the financial problems facing the practice at Arden House. At the same time he also discovers that his support for the setting-up of a National Health Service is not shared by all his colleagues in the medical world. A number of surprises also await him on the home front, including the arrival of the opiniated young Doctor Neil as the new locum and some unexpected news from his fiancee, local nurse Brenda Maitland.
