Product Description

He’s surly, tactless, self-centered, and uptight—but he’s the only doctor in town.

Fatherhood hasn’t softened the dour Dr. Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes, Men Behaving Badly). He’s about to take a new position in London when events conspire to keep him in Portwenn. His infant son with Louisa (Caroline Catz, Murder in Suburbia) needs a name, his replacement doesn’t seem up to the job, and he receives devastating news. Like it or not, he’s stuck in the scenic Cornish village with its quirky inhabitants—most of whom have grudgingly grown rather fond of the grumpy doctor.

Although Martin has largely mastered his fear of blood, he still has no clue how to manage his life. How can he cope with sleepless nights, an aunt with issues, a flaky new receptionist, Louisa’s hippie mother, and the usual village dramas? This season, Emmy® winner Eileen Atkins (Cranford) joins the cast of the award-winning British drama.

Episode 1 Preserve the Romance - Doc Martin’s return to London is delayed by the birth of his son, the arrival of an incompetent replacement at his Portwenn practice, and the sad news of a sudden death. He temporarily moves in with Louisa and their still unnamed baby.

Episode 2 Dry Your Tears - Martin agrees to stay on until a more suitable substitute is found. He moves back into his house and persuades Louisa to join him so he can help raise their child. Martin’s aunt Ruth arrives in Portwenn for a funeral. She’s almost as cranky as her nephew.

Episode 3 Born with a Shotgun - A wailing baby and sleepless nights leave Martin and Louisa with frayed nerves. New receptionist Morwenna makes a bad first impression on the doctor. Aunt Ruth deals with an intruder and a reclusive neighbor with a mysterious illness.

Episode 4 Mother Knows Best - The first annual Portwenn charity fun run leads to a rivalry between Bert Large’s restaurant and a local pub. Louisa’s mother, Eleanor, shows up unannounced, and while Louisa isn’t happy to see her, the baby starts sleeping more soundly under Eleanor’s care.

Episode 5 Remember Me - PC Penhale has an unexpected visitor: his ex-wife Maggie, who exhibits strange symptoms. Louisa learns her mother’s real reason for returning to Portwenn, and she and Martin finally choose a name for their baby.

Episode 6 Don’t Let Go - PC Penhale takes desperate measures to convince Maggie to stay in Portwenn. When Aunt Ruth discovers old family photos, Martin is reminded of his unhappy childhood. Martin and Louisa can’t seem to agree on anything, and tensions reach a breaking point.

Episode 7 Cats and Sharks - Threatened by loan sharks, Bert Large can’t afford to host a charity event for a cat sanctuary. PC Penhale intervenes, and Eleanor comes up with a way to bring more customers to Bert’s restaurant. Meanwhile, Martin makes plans to leave Portwenn in a week.

Episode 8 Ever After - Unaware of her feelings for him, Martin asks Mrs. Tishell, the pharmacist, to babysit James Henry for the day. Fueled by a cocktail of self-prescribed drugs, she takes the baby and disappears. Martin, Louisa, Aunt Ruth, and PC Penhale pursue them to a castle high on a cliff.

Format: DVD
Two years on from Series 4 Doc Martin has returned to our screens and this series was well worth the wait. Formerly a highly successful surgeon who has developed a phobia for performing operations and in particular to the sight of blood, Doctor Martin Ellingham has started a new life as a GP in the quiet Cornish village of Port Wenn in the UK. However, having absolutely zero people skills and a nonexistent bedside manner, traits which extend to his personal life and in particular his relationship with his former partner, the long suffering Louisa, his dealings with the locals are somewhat uneasy.

The last series ended with Doc Martin wondering whether to move back to London, or stay in Port Wenn to support Louisa who has just given birth to their child. However, Doc Martin is less than impressed with his replacement as GP, and predictably decides to stay on. Quite a number of the plots this time round feature the rather haphazard child minding arrangements for the baby, and at one stage this is subcontracted out by Louisa's mother to some teenage girls at the bargain price of £2 (about $3) an hour! The climax to this series again revolves around the baby, but we do not have a cliffhanger ending this time round which I was grateful for as this always seems somewhat contrived.

Port Wenn is a quiet, country village and nothing of great significance seems to happen for a lot of the time. When something out of the ordinary does happen, it is played out to the full. For example, one episode is based on Bert Large, the restaurateur, borrowing £1,000 ($1500) from a wheelchair bound loan shark and his dim son, and being concerned about unspecified `repercussions' in the event of non repayment.

I love the acting and actors as usuall but the plots were too fluffy... Doc's new assistant was the same assistant with a new face. Auntie is good but the policeman is not believable. I love the cameoes from Martin Clune's other series.

We've watched the series unfold on PBS and have bought each season as it's become available. Great characters, 'good' medicine, and completely addictive...
