Storyline

After vying with Jennifer for customer attention, Sally learns that she is finally allowed to practice alone and resume her old job, so she is keen to see off her rival. Jennifer plans to leave Port Wenn, but a marriage proposal from Bert changes her mind. Hypochondriac Malcolm Rayner complains of a cough, which leads Martin, given that Malcolm was a builder, to consider his possible exposure to asbestos and to order X-rays of his lungs. Malcolm, believing he is dying, gets drunk and arrested by Joe, who panics, posting asbestos warnings around the village. When he impales himself on his staple gun, Martin rescues him, but his blood phobia makes him vomit. A bigger blow for the doctor is the arrival of his mother, Margaret, who coldly informs him that his father has died. Nor is she very good with baby James, though she seems anxious to make amends. Martin is wary. Written by don @ minifie-1

Return of the evil mama.....
10 May 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, Mrs. Tischell has gotten final approval to resume work. And, since she and Jennifer have never gotten along, Mrs. Tischell promptly fires her. However, when Bert asks Jennifer to marry him, she decides to stay in Portwenn. Additional plots involve a curmudgeon named Malcolm---who is a bit of a hypochondriac. Yes, he has an illness but it's not what he thinks. When Malcolm then tells the village idiot, PC Penhale, what he THINKS the illness is, Penhale panics and gets everyone else in a panic. Finally, when the show ends, the cold-blooded beast, Doc's mother, arrives in town and casually tells him that his father died some time ago and she's finally getting around to telling Martin!!

Overall, a typical and well written episode of "Doc Martin". None of the plots are earth-shattering but enjoyable and up to the show's usual high standards.
