Incontinent old ladies, men with eagle tattoos, traumatised widowers - Dr Iwan James's patients cause him both to feel both sympathy and dismay, further complicated by his feelings for his practice partners: unrequited longing for Dr Lois Pritchard, and frustration at the antics of Dr Robert Smith, who will use any means to make Iwan look bad in her presence. Iwan's cycling trips with his friend and mentor, Arthur, provide some welcome relief, but as we explore the phantoms from his past, we ask what is the dividing line between patient and provider? Wry, comic, graphic, often quotidian and sometimes tragic, his patients' stories are the spokes that make Iwan's wheels go round. In this moving, funny and eloquent graphic novel of the life of a country doctor, Ian Williams has created a graphic Dr Finlay's Casebook for the 21st century.
