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 4

Louisa and Martin have their first therapy session together – though neither of them was expecting that they would be given homework. Peter Cronk, now 15, approaches Louisa to ask if Martin will allow him to do work experience at the Surgery. Louisa is surprised, and impressed, when Martin agrees to this: perhaps he is learning to change after all. Morwenna is not quite so happy about it when Peter starts trying to boss her around in the Surgery.  Meanwhile, Mrs Tishell is surprised by the return of her husband, Clive, and even more so when he tells her he wants to give things another go. Bert, after losing the restaurant and having nowhere to live except his new campervan, is looking around for other opportunities, but he is keeping everything close to his chest, and definitely away from the eyes of Penhale, who is trying to impress Janice. Louisa has to call Martin to help her when one of her pupils, Jessy, collapses, during a school excursion, and together they rush Jessy to hospital. Peter’s work experience doesn’t work out quite as well as he had hoped, though he is very grateful he did it when Martin helps him to successfully treat his mother, Mrs Cronk.
