Flesh and Blood: A History of My Family in Seven Sicknesses by Stephen McGann

Stephen McGann, aka Dr Turner in the BBC hit-drama series, Call the Midwife, writes the story of the McGann family as told through seven diseases that have afflicted his relatives over  the past century and a half and have helped mould him into the person he is today. ‘Flesh and Blood’ combines McGann’s passion for genealogy with an academic interest in the social dimensions of medicine – and fuses these with a lifelong exploration of drama as away of understanding what motives human beings to do the things they do.
