Doc Martin

No video available - find out why

DOC MARTIN is a catchy comedy drama that stars Martin Clunes (Men Behaving Badly) as Martin Ellingham, whose truculence and tactless manner causes mayhem in a small Cornish community. The series details the trials and tribulations of the brash Ellingham, once a celebrated London surgeon who left his job after developing a phobia to blood. After retraining as a general practitioner, he gets a job in the beautiful but sleepy village of Portwenn, replacing their deceased local doctor-but his abrasive personality doesn't exactly mesh with the pace of life in Cornwall.

  • #701 — Rescue Me
    We start back in Portwenn with Martin, but Louisa is not there. After their tumultuous time last series, Louisa has gone for a break to visit her mother in Spain: to have some time to think and get some perspective on their relationship. Martin is faced with the questions: will Louisa come back to him; and what can he do to make sure that she does? Martin knows that he needs to try and change for the sake of his marriage, and promised Louisa that he would see a therapist to try and effect this change. Aunt Ruth manages to find him someone very well qualified to see Dr. Rachel Timoney. However, life in Portwenn transpires to get in Martin's way, in the shape of Steve Baker, and the Lifeboat training exercise. Martin is not the only person inconvenienced Steve and his assistant Barry are meant to be helping Al get his Bed and Breakfast ready in time for his first guests arriving, but Steve is never there and half the walls still haven't been plastered. Al can't even rely on his father or Morwenna for help, as Bert is upset that Al hasn't wanted his help in the past, and Morwenna has been roped into the Lifeboat training exercise by her new flatmate Janice. When Steve collapses, the mock rescue becomes a real life rescue, and Martin and Penhale race out to help Morwenna to save Steve's life. But marooned at sea, Martin is going to have trouble getting back in time to speak to Louisa and is in danger of missing his first scheduled therapy session.

  • #702 — The Shock of the New
    After Martin's first session with Dr. Rachel Timoney, we see he may have me this match: if anyone is going to be able to help Martin change, then Dr. Timoney seems well-qualified. Louisa's return further raises questions around their relationship: in order to stay together, perhaps they need to spend more time apart, living in separate houses until they have worked through their issues. Meanwhile, Al welcomes his first fishing guests, but an uninvited one means that his good review is definitely not guaranteed. Bert decides to try and rejuvenate trade at the restaurant by joining an online voucher scheme, and offering a 2-for-1 lobster special with the help of Gus, a local fisherman. Morwenna thinks her responsibilities in the Surgery have increased, and asks Martin for a pay raise. Louisa, her return to school imminent, has to find a new babysitter to look after James Henry, and reluctantly decides to offer Janice a trial. Aunt Ruth has to face up to the fact that there is no escaping the aging process, but doesn't want Martin to be constantly making her accept her health limitations. Penhale is excited to receive his new police issue Taser, but Portwenn does not exactly offer him plenty of opportunities to try it out...

  • #703 — It's Good to Talk
    Martin has decided he will be the one to move out of the Surgery to allow Louisa the space she needs, which Louisa does really appreciate. Louisa is intrigued to meet Martin's therapist, Dr. Rachel Timoney, but is not quite so happy when Rachel suggests that they should have therapy as a couple, instead of Martin having it on his own. Aunt Ruth, however, manages to persuade Louisa that being a part of it will allow her a chance to defend herself if she needs to. Janice's babysitting of James Henry does not get off to the best of starts, but fortunately Penhale is around to help her out. After his disastrous lobster special evening, Bert disappears, and Al is very concerned when Ruth tells him about Bert's behavior, and when he finds out there are bailiffs at the restaurant. Mrs. Tishell is concerned that Martin will not be able to look after himself living on his own, so decides that she is the best person to help him. The new Portwenn Radio DJ, Melanie, is trying to revitalize the station with a Healthy Eating Week segment, and tries to get Martin involved, but she ends up getting more than she bargained for when Martin has to perform an operation live on the air.
