North East Of Eden
The BBC radio sitcom about a metropolitan GP who quits the city for a life in Paradise.
When Marcia Hulme inherits her uncle's medical practice, she decamps from London to a remote island off the coast of Northumbria. There's not a lot to do in Paradise, other than fish or drink, and Marcia's soon missing her favourite restaurants, cinemas and theatres - and her boyfriend, Clem. But as she plans her escape back to the Big Smoke, she gets drawn into island life and discovers that swapping West End wine bars for the Wind O'Change pub is really not so bad...
In these six episodes, Marcia becomes involved in the Great Pig Race; joins the lifeboat crew on the Bobby Vee; and tries to start an arthouse film club. Meanwhile, the islanders are facing their own challenges, with offshore submarine manoeuvres; a man from the Ministry snooping about; and a mysterious illness that threatens the festivities at the St Marcus's Day parade. And as religious fever grips Paradise, Marcia finds herself praying for a miracle when Clem pays a visit...

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
