Series overview

Martin Clunes plays the nation’s favourite grumpy medic, Doc Martin.

He stars as Dr. Martin Ellingham, the GP with a brusque bedside manner and a phobia of blood, in the hugely successful drama produced by Buffalo Pictures, and set in the idyllic hamlet of Portwenn in Cornwall.

Picturesque Port Isaac provides the beautiful backdrop for the popular series, with all regular members of the cast reprising their roles.

Episode 2

With Janice having left, Martin and Louisa are looking for a nursery for James. Mrs Tishell is shocked to learn Al has very high blood pressure, while Ruth is approached about selling her farm. Plus, Louisa helps with the diagnosis of a pupil, which spurs her on to explore a possible career change. This is not welcome news for Martin, who dislikes change of any kind, even if it could be for the better.
