While I love midwives, this one often steps over the line....and, once again, this is a person WORSE than the Doctor!
27 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

'it's not really pain...it's a woman taking charge'--the midwife in this episode, Molly O'Brien

A new midwife has come into town and she is a real jerk-face. This is because she often crosses over the line--dispensing medical advice and acting as if doctors are the enemy. In reality, midwives serve a great purpose and a RESPONSIBLE one who doesn't hate doctors is a godsend. But this one manages to be more annoying and hateful than Doc Martin--and that takes a lot of work! Will her interfering and annoying personality place Louisa and the baby at risk?

Another plot in this one is about Bert and his source for meat at his restaurant. He thinks the lady providing him wild game is just a poacher--and he can live with that. But it turns out that she's using roadkill--and that might be a serious problem! Not surprisingly, she and her husband are showing some symptoms of an illness!

This is a very good and very typical episode. Well written and full of the fun soapy elements fans love most.
