Where does Dr Finlay: Further Adventures of a Black Bag rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Out of my 902 audiobooks in my collection, Dr Finlay is in the top 20 of Comedy Full Casts. My husband and I love listening to Finlays sagas as he lives from day to day bull dozing his ways into the lives of the villagers who are ignorant and old fashioned in their small minded ways. He nearly always triumphs in an odd way.
What other book might you compare Dr Finlay: Further Adventures of a Black Bag to, and why?
The next Dr Finlay series 2. Fabulous ! Come on Audible.uk Please publish more of Our Beloved DR FINLAY ! :) Thank you. Series 2 is just as funny and entertaining as series 1. But we need and want a series 3, 4, 5, 6. You publish them, I will buy them :)
Have you listened to any of David Ashton’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Yes I have the full collection of David Ashtons "Mcklevy" the Victorian Policeman acted by my friend actor Brian Cox. He gives the perfect account of the rough detective. The David Ashton humour shines through but this is a police show with murder and violence at its core in the City of Victorian Edinburgh and as far away from Dr Finlay and his ignorant villagers you can get.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I listened to Dr Finlay series 1 and 2 in one go just the other week when I was recovering from a major operation and was bedridden. These were two perfect days :)
Any additional comments?
Please make more of the Dr Finlay Shows. These are so full of inocent fun with quite naughty but subtle humour for all the family. I was astonished to discover the actor who was "Gergory in the film Gregory Girl" plays Dr Finlay. He is superb in the part and comes across a robust fun feely type of character far from the wet Gregory.

Lovely coothie fireside stories for relaxing to, taking the listener back to a bygone era. John Gordon Sinclair, I find to be a bit hammy but love his performances nevertheless as well anything he is in.
