Storyline

When obstetrician Martin Bamford learns that his wife has been unfaithful to him with all three of his best mates, he decides to leave London for a short while to clear his head and decide what to do next. He heads to the village of Port Isaac in Cornwall where he had spent some time as a boy. He's a bit of an oddity in the village and some at least suspect he may be there for no good reason. He soon makes friends and finds himself working on a fishing boat and enjoying a somewhat carefree life. Someone in the village is distributing poison pen letters of a sort with messages or photos stuck inside jellies that people find on their doorstep. Soon, some of the villagers point the finger at Martin who thinks those accusing him are daft. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Doc Martin is burning his wife's photo in his Inn room, his cigarette is just lit. Then the photo he burns is shown burning out of control to MORE than half-burned from the back side. After he throws it in the trash bin and puts it out a couple seconds later, the photo is LESS than half burned and his cigarette shows ashes hanging off burnt half-way down as if a number of minutes had passed.

Would be perfect w a couple of edits...
8 November 2014 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

This first prequel to the Doc Martin character in Saving Grace is pretty good if you can get past the awful sex scene about a third of the way in, the squeamish bits, and the verbal litter (which is always a bummer).

If you enjoy stories about folks who are able to get away and rethink their lives, this one fits the bill. Would have liked to see the Doc not be quite so accommodating to his wife though.

The cast is great and the location is spectacular. Lots of characters to root for.

I watched Saving Grace so long ago that I don't remember the original Doc Martin character and am eager to go back and see that show again. On the other hand, I watched the second prequel, Doc Martin and the Legend of the Cloutie, and it was AWFUL. It was really really stupid.
