With Eleanor recovering from her operation and half the school down with the flu Martin agrees to baby-sit James for Louisa. When her husband seeks Martin's advice pharmacist Mrs. Tishell volunteers to mind the child but she has long nurtured a hidden love for Martin - even creating a shrine to him in her wardrobe - and now,after an excess of self-prescribed drugs,she totally flips and runs off with James,leaving a note for Martin to follow so they can elope together. In persuading her to return his son Martin declares his supposed love for her,which does the trick. In reality he is at last opening up about his true feeling for Louisa and,with James safely returned,announces that he will not be going to London after all. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


Dr. Martin Ellingham: ...and I do hate Port Wenn. I hate the people - their pinched faces, and their ridiculous accents, and their unerring knack of catching any virus that comes within a five-mile radius! They spread contagion like a bush fire! But it's where I want to be, because you're here.

Doc Martin: compelling comedy and drama of English village medical practice
30 October 2011 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

The TV series Doc Martin is a well-written quirky, charming comedy. It has a winning mix of colorful but believable characters of all shapes, sizes and ages; picture postcard location in a Cornish fishing village; and true-to-life dramas of an English village general medical practice.

The series carries on with distinction an English tradition in which doctor/author Richard Gordon was a master with his popular 'Doctor in/at/on …' novels, which also had movie and TV spin-offs.

The main character, Dr Martin Ellingham, played by Martin Clunes, is a gruff and detached oddball. He fights recurrent bouts of haemophobia - fear of the sight of blood. He appears to have a mild autism-spectrum disorder impairing his ability to relate to other people, including his aunts, his local teacher girlfriend and his baby with her (at the end of series 4 and through series 5), and his patients. But along with whatever is his unexplained behavioral or personality disorder, he also has a touch of the autistic savant: he is an excellent medical practitioner, often diagnosing and successfully treating problems overlooked by others.

Usually I am not a fan of sitcoms or soap operas. While this show has foundations in the sitcom/soap opera genre, it soars beyond the usual in that genre. Its formula of good stories and fine ensemble cast makes Doc Martin compelling viewing for me. The picturesque real Cornish fishing village of Port Isaac, which plays the fictional location of Portwenn, is a "character" in its own right.
