What was that TV Prog?

  Kev.Ifty 21:41 12 Jul 2007

Mrs.Ifty asks.. What was the name of the TV programme? It was set in the present and was about a Doctor that moves, with his family, to a remote Practise. Possibly one of the Scottish Isles.

Can't think of any of the Actors names. But apparently the Doctor is having marital problems, and suspects the wife of having an affair.

Sorry! a bit vague. Any help?

No that was based in Devon(I think). I think the doctor was Peter Davidson, and it was based in some remote Scottish island and the wife was bored and had a fling with a local.

and starred Peter Davison and Claudia Renton (his wife in the series).

Davison played a successful plastic surgeon who took his family (and brand new Bentley) to live on a remote Northumberland island.

Great minds ... !

You are perhaps thinking of 'Distant Shores' starring Peter Davidson and Samantha Bond filmed in and around Craster and Lindisfarne, not a million miles from where we live.

Just because I cannot type as fast as you 'young-uns'

Claudia Renton played his daughter. Anyway, the island it was filmed on is Craster in real life.

Cheers On Mrs.Ifty's behalf

Filmed in Craster, a Northumberland fishing village, not an island FE.

Famous for it's kippers rather than any TV series!
