The book: Rusty Everett is a physician's assistant who becomes the de facto town doctor after the dome descends and the main town doctor dies of a heart attack. He and Deputy Linda are married with two children.
The show: Big changes here -- no town doctor, fireman. Outside the dome, not in. It's a shame, too, because Rusty is a great character in the book. His brother, Freddy Denton, is a police officer inside the dome on the show, which is a change from the Freddy Denton in the book.
