Don't get me wrong; I love Martin Clunes! He is a phenomenal actor and I wouldn't pass up watching anything he has done. However, this program drips with too much grief. I was spoiled on the Doc Martin series and was hoping that this one would be just as good; it isn't. For one thing, William seems to always be a victim of circumstances. The supporting characters seem to "attack" him in an indirect way; there's Kate, his daughter, who appears to buck him at every turn. Her tryst with a married man and her fear of being pregnant is just one example of the ever-increasing weight of worry that piles up on William. The ever ubiquitous Ruben who increasingly becomes a bigger pest (and an irritant) every time he turns up, Mary's two sons, one of which gets knifed and sent to the hospital, Mary's mother, who has cancer. These incidents and more are just too much drama for one man to withstand.
At least Doc Martin has a great blend of good humor with some drama and I'll admit that I expected about the same with this series. Such is not the case. William and Mary has very little humor and too much drama. It, at times, is too overwhelming.
