Storyline

It's Martin's last day in Portwenn and the surgery is packed. Edith turns up, expecting an apology from Martin for walking out on her but of course does not get one and Joan again rebukes him for distancing himself from his child. As he is about to leave, Tasha, a school-teacher friend of Louisa, collapses. She has been inhaling fumes from an illegal bio-fuel used by her cab driver husband Tommy. She is all right but Tommy, who is driving Louisa to hospital for the birth, also collapses at the wheel and crashes the car. Martin races to save him and to help deliver the baby. It's a boy, and the whole of Portwenn, who have been listening via Pauline's amplified mobile phone, cheer Martin and Louisa and their new offspring. Written by don @ minifie-1

Baby time.

Dr. Ellingham is just about ready to walk away from the little town to a new life in London. However, as you'd expect on a TV show like this, his plans do NOT go as planned and all sorts of bad stuff occurs. The biggest problem involves a teacher, Tasha, and her husband, a cab driver. They both are having strange symptoms and by the time the Doc figures out the problem and how to cure it, it's almost too late for Tasha. The treatment, and it's pretty weird, is a quick infusion of alcohol! But here is the problem--the husband is driving Louisa to the hospital and he is also sick--and could black out just like his wife just did! By the time the worried doctor catches up to the cab, it has crashed. The cab driver needs immediate care or he'll die and Louisa just went into labor!! What's to happen?

This is a well written and chaotic episode--culminating in the birth of the Doctor's son. Well written and charming at the end as the town listens in as the child is delivered!
