Surely Not, Doctor!

Robert Clifford

2 Reviews

Rated 0

The Dr Clifford Chronicl, Biography: general, Prose: non-fiction

Never A Dull Moment!

Doctor Bob's country practice is in Tadchester on the Somerset coast, but no one can accuse the town of being a sleepy little backwater. All human life is there with its quirks, colour, comedy and richness . . .

There's the absent-minded, incontinent vicar of St Peter's; the well-known London publisher whose dog has more taste than most; the lady magistrate who travels for miles for a doctor with warm hands and the packet of suppositories which prompts a bomb scare! Then there's the hairdresser with a penchant for male strippers and the whispering journalist who learnt how to shout. Even off duty, Doctor Bob's life is full of incident and he himself ends up with a long spell in hospital.

It all goes to show that truth can be so much stranger than fiction . . .
