Love and Dr Devon

It's not easy being a doctor. Ask any GP. The profession may have a glamorous image, but there is little real glamour in haemorrhoids and hernias, athlete's foot and dermatitis. So when retirement looms for Christopher Devon, he is only too happy to shake off the aroma of antiseptic and look forward to a new life. More time to travel, more time for his orchids, and time, perhaps, to meet a new woman.
But how to find one? There is no shortage of female patients fluttering their eyelashes (and even the odd male), but what Dr Devon wants is a soulmate as much as a bedmate. Perhaps the internet can help? He seeks and he finds - sometimes with disastrous consequences. But, eventually, love comes to Dr Devon.
And then his troubles begin. His former wife has problems of her own, soon to be visited on her ex, and his two grown-up children do not take kindly to the changes in their own circumstances that will be the likely outcome of Dr Devon's dalliances. One gold digger is all that a daughter with a large family and a gay son with a high standard of living need to sever them from their inheritance at 'Bedside Manor'. And passion in retirement? Oh please!
Will Dr Devon find true love and live happily ever after? Or will the bitter pill of reality prove a fly in the ointment of his dreams?
