Doctor at Large book. This, first published in 1955, is the third of Richard Gordon’s Doctor books; and, while not quite as entertaining as the first one, is still well worth a read. It follows the protagonist through his efforts to get a decent job, qualify as a surgeon and resolve various romantic problems, updating us on the further activities of old friends such as Grimsdyke.

Dr Richard Gordon’s first job after qualifying takes him to St Swithan’s where he is enrolled as Junior Casualty House Surgeon. After a series of disastrous interviews, Gordon cuts his losses and visits a medical employment agency. However, some rather unfortunate incidents with Mr Justice Hopwood, as well as one of his patients inexplicably coughing up nuts and bolts, mean that promotion passes him by – and goes instead to Bingham, his odious rival. To his disappointment, all the best jobs have already been snapped up, but he could always turn to general practice? Fiction.

After seeing the films,(I'm still trying to find the BBC television series) I just had to read the books, and I wasn't disappointed! Dr Gordon writes in an easygoing style that is an absolute joy to read. I recommend this series to anyone who loves a little light humor. You won't regret it!

This was a plain oldfashioned fun, fast book.It made me think of someone telling stories of their youth at a dinner party.I have been continuing with the series in between more demanding reading and they are a happy respit.

Interesting read but hardly as funny as other reviewers would have us believe. Reads more like a memoir.
Risteacor
This book is well written and a laugh out loud pleasure to read. Richard Goedon is up there with James Herriot. I would recommend the entire series.
Nagor

This, first published in 1955, is the third of Richard Gordon's "Doctor" books; and, while not quite as entertaining as the first one, is still well worth a read. It follows the protagonist through his efforts to get a decent job, qualify as a surgeon and resolve various romantic problems, updating us on the further activities of old friends such as Grimsdyke.

The edition I got hold of (Harcourt, Brace and Co.) appeared, somewhat irritatingly, to have been revised to replace UK terms with US ones ("petrol" with "gasoline", "lift" with "elevator", etc.), making the result neither British nor American but a sort of ghastly mid-Atlantic.

So try to get a British edition, other things being equal.
I have enjoyed many of the books in this series since I was a 15 year old and Doctor at Large was no exception. The edition I have is 1955 hardcover and signed by the author. What a delight to meet him. Mind you after reading this book a visit to the Doctor will never be the same!
