A new police constable, Joe Penhale, arrives in Portwenn but seems to have a peculiar medical condition. Martin's aunt Joan has a car accident and Louisa faints while teaching a class. Pauline is bored with being a receptionist and desperately wants to give out medical advice so Martin has a proposal for her. Written by garykmcd

An interesting case of a nutty little girl!
25 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, the Doc is meeting with an inept mother and a horrid little girl. The Doc is right to get angry at the mother's unwillingness to parent and tell the child no, but he's a jerk-face because he so quickly throws them out of the office and misses some important facts. As a result, the child begins acting out WORSE than Ricky Bobby's boys in "Talladega Nights" and is nearly killed. What is going on and how the Doc could have handled it better are worth seeing and considering. Overall, a very memorable episode--especially when you see this maniac kid riding atop of Aunt Joan's vehicle as it's speeding through the streets of town! Well written, fascinating and worth seeing for this as well as to meet the new constable.
