Storyline

When Helen Pratt dies at home, her husband Phil blames Martin. To make matters worse, the Pratts are aunt Joan's neighbors and in spite, he starts using pesticides near Joan's land thereby threatening her organic license, which is just now up for renewal. Pauline is thrilled to have been invited to join the Portwenn lifeboat squad but she uses the opportunity to flirt with the team captain in the hopes of making Al Large jealous. When he doesn't respond, she wonders if he's really interested. Mark Mylow and Julie Mitchell spend a pleasant afternoon together. Martin is asked to treat Tricia Soames, a teacher at the local school who has obsessive-compulsive disorder. Martin and Louisa make an effort to re-establish their friendship. Written by garykmcd

A bit below average because the resolutions to the problems seemed to be lacking.
23 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

When the show begins, you see Doc Martin out on a house call* at the Pratt's. Unfortunately, there isn't anything he can do and Mrs. Pratt dies from an embolism almost the second the Doctor enters the house. Oddly, Mr. Pratt is furious at the Doctor--though common sense says it's not the incredibly insensitive man's fault. Even stranger is that he then begins behaving very spitefully towards the Doctor's aunt--who's done nothing wrong. Where all this goes is pretty weird but the story never seems to exactly resolve itself.

The other plot (and there always seem to be at least two) is a much smaller one. The new teacher has problems but the Doc doesn't seem to care...and the teacher seems unwilling to accept his help anyway. However, there IS something wrong...what?

Both plots are odd because neither seems fully resolved. They MAY resolve themselves but you aren't sure about what happens. Odd but worth seeing.

*Throughout this series, although the Doctor is a grouchy guy, he DOES make lots of house calls. In the US, I doubt if any doctor will still do this and am curious if making house calls is the norm in the UK. Just curious and would love to hear from you.
