Storyline

Martin's first official day on the job may be his last when he orders all and sundry, who seem to think the surgery is a town meeting place, out on the street. Having reached the end of his tether, he also fires his receptionist Elaine, only to find that pretty well everyone in village now shuns him. His aunt Joan suggests he should be a little more understanding, but that is not exactly Martin's style. One patient who does remain is Roger Fenn who has a lump in his throat that Martin fears may be cancerous. In a quiet moment, Martin reveals to him the phobia that has caused him to give up surgery and become a GP. Written by garykmcd

Still trying to find his way.
1 June 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the second episode of the TV series "Doc Martin" and it picks up from the last show. Here, Dr. Ellington is trying to start up his practice and problems still abound. He's got messy plumbing, patients only make appointments to chat and Elaine continues to be the worst receptionist in the world. In fact, she's so awful that Ellington fires her--which is not the least bit surprising. But the community's reaction is--and they all start boycotting the practice. What's he to do? Mr. Fenn is one of the few patients he does have and it looks as if the guy might have throat cancer! Additionally, the doctor finally talks about his weird psychological disorder--hemophobia.

While the show is still trying to catch its stride, this one was very entertaining--particularly when the same mutt kept following the disagreeable doctor.
