Storyline

Dr. Martin Ellingham is a successful London surgeon who decides to relocate to the seaside village of Portwenn to practice medicine as a GP. His reasons for doing so are his own and even his aunt Joan, who lives locally, isn't quite sure what his motivation is. As Martin settles into the village he comes across the village characters: Bert Large and his son, who as general handymen take on fixing the plumbing in Martin's house; Colonel Gilbert Spencer who has a peculiar medical condition; and Louisa Glasson, the local school teacher who also happens to be the only member of the local medical advisory committee to argue against Martin's hiring in the first place. Martin's gruff demeanor and poor bedside manner brings him into conflict with several locals and he seriously considers packing it in. Written by garykmcd

You Need to Get It Started Somehow
6 January 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This show has been around for some time but I've not watched it before. This is the maiden episode and it is lacking in continuity and development. It's as if we needed to get to know the characters, but little effort was made to artistically present them to us. The good Doc is a harsh, unfeeling guy who doesn't seem willing to meet anyone half way. So now that this is out of the way, we will see how this plays out, with sound plots and characters we can call our own.
