Quotes:“I have a hot date with a fracture dislocation of the ankle joint.”

Background: Seemingly self-assured, Orthopod Dan Hamilton gets his kicks from fixing bones and rebuilding people, scoffing at those who consider his job basic medical carpentry. Dan is an obsessive rugby player who enjoyed a traditional middle class upbringing and in turn expects the house, the wife and the career. However, in fleeting moments Dan lacks courage - does this unreconstructed man really know who he is and what he wants?
