The O'Donnells and the Stevensons grew up together, but Janet Stevenson hasn't seen Angus O'Donnell for eight years, while he's been travelling the world as a locum GP. Now he's back in Australia, and, as Janet is looking for a partner since her general practice has grown so much, it seems fortuitous that Angus is available to locum while she looks for someone.
