Trials and tribulations of a socially challenged doctor in Cornwall, England
Louisa worries Dr Timoney's suggestion that she and Martin aren't meant to be together might have prompted him to leave Portwenn for good. Calling on Ruth, Morwenna and Janice for help, she tries to track the down the missing GP, with no luck. However, what Dr Ellingham's friends and family fail to realise is that he is actually trapped up at the Wilton farm, where desperate wife Annie is trying to coerce him into performing a life-saving operation on her terminally ill husband Jim. Meanwhile, Ruth and Bert seek out Al to offer him a proposition regarding the whisky and the B&B..
Stars Martin Clunes as Dr. Martin Bamford, a friend of Matthew Stewart. Clunes' character was spun off into a pair of films focusing on how he ended up in Cornwall. Later the character was renamed Dr. Martin Ellingham and underwent a complete personality change to become the sullen misanthrope that stars in the ITV television series Doc Martin, which states in its ending credits that the character was derived from the film Saving Grace.
Love, love, love this show! I am glad they haven't canceled it. A shame that British shows have such small seasons. This is one of those shows that you feel part of the family. The views are gorgeous and makes you want to move there. The aloofness and weird ways of Doc Martin are just hillarious. I am on my third time watching the series from the beginning.
