Storyline

Ruth bumps into Margaret and berates her for being an unloving mother to Martin; but, even Margaret, like Louisa, is concerned that Martin seems withdrawn and unwell. He attends the school prize giving, but his curt manner ends with him stomping off, and Louisa, running after him, is hit by a car and hospitalized. Visiting her, Martin is concerned that she may have an embolism, but is shocked when she announces she wants to take James for a break with her mother Eleanor in Spain. Military policemen visit Port Wenn, looking for Mike, an Army deserter. He is prepared for a life on the run, but Martin persuades him that things will go better for him if he gives himself up.

Quotes

Ruth Ellingham: [At a café table] But it isn't your pilfering and your petty meanness that I care about. It's the damage that you can still inflict on Martin.
Margaret Ellingham: Well, I don't have to stay here to listen to this.
Ruth Ellingham: Go home, Margaret.
Margaret Ellingham: [Ready to leave alone] I am Martin's mother. I have every right to be here. You've never had children. You can't possibly understand what you're talking about.
Ruth Ellingham: Don't forget your grandson!

Martin's health
23 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A good episode..but agree with a previous reviewer..Penhale is a little over the top... (aKeystone Kop) What I found curious about this episode is that, on three occasions Doc exhibited strange comportment. First, he is shown breathing forcefully into a device..no explanation Secondly, he hands a vial to Morwenna, who exclaims, "this is for YOU"..she is instructed to send it off to the Lab..no explanation Thirdly, Morwenna bursts into his consultation room, to find the doc taking his own heart rate. No explanation (Not sure of the order) Given the above, and Martin's demeanour throughout the episode, I suspect something is up with his health. Looking forward to the next season
