Doctor Bob lives in Tadchester on the Somerset coast. It's a good little town, but like all English country towns it has its fair share of interesting cases . . .
To start with, there's young Mr Haggard who has a thing about doctors. Then there's Mr Wood, the amorous but underdeveloped photographer with a crush on Amazing Grace the receptionist . . . not forgetting Mrs Short with her secret addiction; Charlie Sloper, the local poacher and supermarket shoplifter; the accident-prone Aubrey Cattermole; and last but not least, the rugby team from Drake's College who develop a mysterious and embarrassing ailment after an away match at a London night club.
And the strangest thing about these cases is, they're all true!
