Doc Martin was formerly a successful surgeon in London before a phobia for blood drove him to his current position as GP in this sleepy Cornish village in the West of England. With a deadpan face and no apparent people skills, he is not well equipped to deal with the eccentric inhabitants. It is amazing how often a largely expressionless face speaks volumes! One wonders how the long suffering Louise manages to put up with him, but clearly she does as this series opens with them preparing at last for their wedding. However, as we might have expected, things on the day and subsequently run far from smoothly.
As in the last series, child minding arrangements for Baby James are an ongoing issue. This time the Doc falls out with the regular minder, and her temporary replacement does not prove to be entirely satisfactory. Meanwhile, when he is drafted in to take the baby to a mother and toddlers group, he does not seem to blend in very well! Neither does he endear himself with the unfortunate Louisa when he invites her school Chairman of Governors and wife around to dinner - it does not prove to be a perfect evening and this was one of the funnier episodes of the series.Read more ›
The discs and case arrived in perfect condition. The Series 6 discs are contained in a nice plastic case, with a cardboard sleeve.
All in all, Series 6 was somewhat a disappointment.
Oh yes, it didn't help that I ordered the series in Mid-December for use as a Christmas present for my wife, with the assurance it would be delivered well before the Day. However, it didn't arrive until approximately mid-April.
AFTER we had watched the series once a week on PBS. I suspect this was because the series couldn't be released until after regular TV had been able to run all episodes. Understandable from a marketing point of view, but rather useless as a Christmas gift.
Since pre-ordering in November, the Amazon release date for the series changed to January, then March, then May and now June. I have been so disappointed about having to wait. We decided to wait for the blue-ray because we wanted to watch the show in HD and, it seems, when the show FINALLY aired on Vision TV here in Canada it wasn't in HD. The scenery is so beautiful, we didn't want to spoil it by seeing it in regular tv formatting.
Consequently, we are still waiting to see the show and hope that the four changes to the release date does not dampen our enjoyment. I don't think I've found a show I've like better, though Gavin and Stacey is right up there too. If you haven't seen that fantastic show - do yourself a favour and find it.
