This is the German version of the long running British comedy drama Doc Martin. So one of the things it's not is original. The scripts were hardly adapted and scenes were copied almost on a 1:1 basis from the British version to the German version. The scripts are funny, well written and a good mix of Dr. House meets Mr. Monk. So it certainly is a competent piece of television but if you know the original version with its fantastic cast and most of all supporting actors (John Woodvine, Claire Bloom) you can't help wondering why they had to shoot a new version and just didn't dub the original. Plus the Cornsih landscape with it's raw beauty and sea views in the original version is pretty spectacular and they make the most of it.
