The series is set in Cornwall , the glorious coast line is the main backdrop , with the gorse and rather bleak mainland interior of this county . Doc Martin is totally suited to be a family doctor in terms of skill
but totally inept socially when dealing with the Cornish residents . The humor is formed by the incongruous interplay between the kindly , gossipy locals and the stiff and formal doctor . Beautifully acted , this
is a series to be treasured and revisited again .
