Storyline

Martin and Louisa are still trying to develop something of relationship, but their plan for dinner is again disrupted this time by Louisa's quirky new neighbors. Martin is particularly perturbed by their approach to child rearing especially when he learns that the child has been vandalizing cars. Martin also learns that in addition to being narcoleptic, Constable Joe Penhale is also agoraphobic. He feels he has no choice but to report him but aunt Joan reminds Martin that many individuals have phobias but are still able to work in their chosen profession. Written by garykmcd

Another case where you'll meet some folks who are MUCH more obnoxious and awful than Doc Martin!
25 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, Doc Martin and Louisa are about to share a nice evening together. Unfortunately, Louisa's new neighbors, the Oakwoods, arrive. They are the most god-awful family in the history of television...or perhaps this series. They have a beastly child-- beastly because they NEVER discipline him in any way. They also are jerks. In the course of the episode, the boy vandalizes a long series of cars--and the parents really don't care and 'don't believe in setting limits'! If this isn't enough, the Oakwoods think vaccines are bad (after all, if Jenny McCarthy says they're bad, who cares what medical science and repeated tests indicate)...and their little monster soon is infected with a deadly disease. Unfortunately, the illness is detected and the child is saved. Too bad they didn't have to put down the boy or his parents!!

The episode is interesting because it shows us another example of folks WORSE than Doc Martin when it comes to social skills...believe it or not! The only negative about all this is that it is a bit predictable--and my daughter kept correctly guessing what was coming next.
