In this television series about a medical doctor at a British university, a recurring character during the first season was a mathematician who was the doctor's roommate, Chen. Their "flat" was therefore filled with equations scribbled on blackboards, which were occasionally the subject of conversation. In one episode, the "maths" becomes more relevant when Chen's research is stolen by other mathematicians, but it generally had nothing to do with the plot.
[BTW Why does Peter Davison so frequently play "doctors" of some sort or other?!? From Doctor Who to the veterinarian in All Creatures...to the main role in this one, it almost seems as if he's been typecast.]

May 2016: I am experimenting with a new feature which will print a picture of the cover and a link to the Amazon.com page for a work of mathematical fiction when it is available. I hope you find this useful and convenient. In any case, please write to let me know if it is because I would be happy to either get rid of it or improve it if that would be better for you. Thanks!
