Storyline

Martin's fear of blood has not decreased and he almost gags when he has to remove a pencil from a schoolgirl's ear. For all this he is still interested in returning to surgery. Louisa has left town and a visit from ex-student colleague Edith, now a high flyer in private practice, helps sway him. However, when Joan's friend Barbara has an accident caused by Mrs. Tishell's husband Clive, who has gone deaf working on oil rigs, Edith wants to operate on her, but Martin overrules her, feeling, correctly, that Barbara can be treated at home. Edith comes to apologize and has not been in Martin's house for more than a few minutes when Louisa returns, extremely pregnant. Written by don @ minifie-1

Doc Martin tries to get along and create a new life without Louisa.
26 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the episode begins, Louisa's been gone from Portwenn for many months. As a result, Martin is beginning to question his future and is considering going back to surgery and his life in the big city. However, this also brings an old flame, Dr. Montgomery, into his life--and he seriously suspects she might have been a serious misdiagnosis.

Additional plots involve Burt trying the dating scene--and is shocked at the first woman he dates. And, the chemist turns out to have a husband--and he's home from his job on an oil rig. He's practically stone deaf and Martin might just be able to help. The show ends on a shocker....but you'll need to see that for yourself.

This is another interesting and exciting episode of this enjoyable series. Well worth seeing and well written.
