Storyline

Martin drives Louisa and their baby son back to her house in Portwenn,where the locals bring them presents. Diana Dibbs, Martin's nervous replacement,has already arrived,with her husband Gavin as her receptionist but Martin is not impressed by her competence - especially as she seems to have numerous ailments herself. Then he learns that Joan has died,causing him to stay for a week for her funeral. During that time he finds himself having to see to all the patients that Diana has misdiagnosed in addition to saving her life when she collapses. It looks as if he is still Portwenn's doctor,whether he likes it or not. Written by don @ minifie-1

The new doctor is a total idiot...so where did she get her training?!
27 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Dr. Dibbs has arrived in town and she is ready to take over Doc Martin's practice. Unexpectedly, they get rid of Martin's old receptionist and that's only the tip of the iceberg--she's also a complete incompetent who must have gotten her degree from a diploma mill or veterinary college! At first, the concerns are only minor but after a while the new Doc nearly dies due to her own stupidity and general incompetence. In addition to all this, a few other problems develop--Louisa is exhausted after giving birth, the PC might have testicular cancer and Aunt Joan dies! So, it's necessary for Doc Martin to stick around...at least for a while.

I never have understood the BBC and how shows like this are made on only a semi-regular basis. In the case of this episode, while it picks up just after the season finale, it actually came out almost two years after! Still, despite this, the continuity was there and it's a most enjoyable episode.
