When obstetrician Martin Bamford learns that his wife has been unfaithful to him with all three of his best mates, he decides to leave London for a short while to clear his head and decide what to do next. He heads to the village of Port Isaac in Cornwall where he had spent some time as a boy. He's a bit of an oddity in the village and some at least suspect he may be there for no good reason. He soon makes friends and finds himself working on a fishing boat and enjoying a somewhat carefree life. Someone in the village is distributing poison pen letters of a sort with messages or photos stuck inside jellies that people find on their doorstep. Soon, some of the villagers point the finger at Martin who thinks those accusing him are daft. Written by garykmcd

When Doc Martin is burning his wife's photo in his Inn room, his cigarette is just lit. Then the photo he burns is shown burning out of control to MORE than half-burned from the back side. After he throws it in the trash bin and puts it out a couple seconds later, the photo is LESS than half burned and his cigarette shows ashes hanging off burnt half-way down as if a number of minutes had passed.

very surprised
20 October 2015 | by dillinger86See all my reviews

I was very surprised how different this movie is from the series, I am more than half way through the series and decided to look up the movie and rent it and watch it. I tell you if there was just a the movie I'd want more. So glad there's the series, but I wish the series was more the movie. in the movie Doc smiles and laughs and drinks and smokes. In the series he doesn't do any of that. I'm the 4th season of Doc Martin and it's getting good. and there's a new season of doc martin that was watching and I thought to start from the beginning of the series, and now I'm going to get me pint and a smoke and finish watching all the way up to the 7th season
