very vague i know but google has let me down so if you have any clue please let me know.

cheers, mick.
Not a doctor but a clergyman. The author is Fred Secombe (brother of Sir Harry) and the books are semi-fictionalised autobiography.

The book with the painted bath incident is 'How Green was my Curate'.

Amazon.co.uk Fred Secombe books

I didn't realise until I looked on amazon for a link that he'd written so many - I may have to revisit these myself!
