I love this series. You need to give it until at least the third episode before deciding for yourself. The pilot almost turned me off, but I'm glad I pushed on. With a great ensemble firmly anchored by leading man Rodger Corser, this one is both funny and moving.

I second ilovewhippets! This series brings out the best in our protagonist used to the highflying, self-indulgent life of an expert cardiac surgeon, where he holds life or death in his surgical artistry. He's relegated to healing regular patients in his home town of Whyhope, as well as mending his own drug-taking, carousing lifestyle, and replacing it a deeper understanding of his flawed inner nature and sometimes problematic family interactions. Along for the ride and there to help reform him, are a forlorn doctor/administrator, a young nurse, and a guiding secretary/attendant, much wiser than her years indicate. Episodes include plenty of humor, but the "heart" in the title of this series shines through.

This is a great laugh - well worth watching you will not be disappointed. Hope there is a Season II.

This is an entertaining series about the disgraced Surgeon, in Australia, forced to go to his small hometown to become a General practioner in a small hospital for a probationary period! He was so used to his glamourous, privileged, previous professional life, that this is a lot of humble pie for him to eat!
He did not particularly get on with his own extended family! Lots of unresolved issues and people he failed in the past!
This is a do-over and, hopefully, healing of the past mistakes, if possible!
We learn that he is a warm, good guy at heart! Yet, while some of his actions are cringe-worthy, other ones are awe-inspiring, such as his caring for his dying Childhood Friend!
He can be very selfish, but is trying now to reform from this and his addictions, as well as the self-serving impulses! If anything, he is honest about his imperfections and faults! And, If unaware, there are plenty of people and own family to give him the necessary insight!

His Mother is an ambitious Poitician in a small Town! She is not immine to cutting corners nor rationalizing her dubious actions!
This is a Comedic Drama about the imperfect families and people, that many viewers will be able to relate to, cringe and laugh with and at, wholeheartedly!
Great Australian nature scenery!

I really liked this 10 episode series. I feel as though there should be more. Each of the characters are amazing! There was laughter, there were tears. Well worth watching.
