Picture Shows: Wilf Bradshaw (John Henshaw)
Arthur Gilder (James Bolam) has lived in the Lancashire village of Ormston all his life but he misses his family and is ready to hand over the reins of this GP practice to his son, Tom (Michael French). Tom moves back to the village from Manchester, bringing with him his wife Deborah (Jenna Russell, and children Helen (Charlotte Salt), Michael (Ross Little), Catherine (Polly Tompson) and baby Philip. But this is also the 1950’s, and Tom also brings with him a sense of dynamism and change for a new age which Aruthur doesn’t embrace with open arms.
