Quotes

[Martin thinks that Caroline might have become an alcoholic]
Caroline Bosman: I don't drink any more than anybody else.
Dr. Martin Ellingham: Do you ever find yourself drinking first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or to get over a hangover?
Caroline Bosman: No! Certainly not!
Dr. Martin Ellingham: Do you often find yourself get annoyed with people who observe or criticise your drinking.

Brilliant!
22 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For me this is a truly brilliant episode. If you want a Doc Martin taster you could do no worse than chose this one. I am a latecomer to this drama - a sort of gutsy comedy. I am sure the much softer show, The Café, was part modelled on Doc Martin. This being the second episode of four watched almost back to back had me both laughing and feeling sorry for characters in equal measure. What more can one want? Most interesting about this series, so far, are the really good traces to be found at the start of the plot line. Quite weirdly, a bit like a simple Agatha Christi novel, the writers gives clues at the start and if you miss them, like I do, then the end results are a surprise. The smelly old man for instance. If you watch an episode for a second or third time (you have to be quite sad to do this) these little clues are priceless. In this episode Clunes is as good as ever but for me the real shine out performance was Felicity Montagu as Caroline Bosman. Here she is superb in her character "drunk" character. Her almost irascible character, someone claims she is "bloody minded" in this episode, really made me laugh a huge amount.
