Doctor Turner’s Casebook: by Stephen McGann

Book Review by Sharon Lewis

Doctor Turner’s Casebook: based on the BBC hit drama Call the Midwife by Stephen McGann

Stephen McGann is the actor who portrays Doctor Turner in the drama series Call the Midwife. This book is written as his medical journal, interspersed with historical and up to date medical information on the diseases and treatments he encountered in the series and those faced by a General Practitioner from the end of World War 2 and into the 1960s.

The book provides a fascinating insight into the advances in medicine that we take for granted today and is an enjoyable way to gain more information on topics covered in the television series.  For anyone who has not seen the series Call the Midwife the book is a great introduction to the advances in medicine and the series. Call the Midwife is based on the trilogy of books by Jennifer Worth who was a midwife during the time and the library holds copies of the books as well as DVD’s of the series.

This book is available for loan from the Lithgow Library Learning Centre.
