Let's go for a hike....
24 April 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Out of the Woods" is not a particularly great episode of "Doc Martin". Now, "Doc Martin" is a very good show, so even a weak show like this is still worth seeing.

It begins with Constable Mylow approaching Martin. He wants him to be his Best Man for the upcoming wedding. Not surprisingly, Martin rebuffs this out of hand--leaving Mylow to find someone else. When he does find one, he comes up with a dumb idea for a bachelor party- -to go hang out in the woods. Now I am not against camping but Mylow has no idea what he's doing and is ill-prepared and the pair get lost. Even worse, Mylow gets bitten by a poisonous snake and could die unless they get help. Unfortunately, FINDING the pair is a trial and Martin's guide is a really nutty man! Can Mylow be found in time?

The show lacks the usual structure for the series and is basically one plot instead of the usual 2 or 3. It's odd but still watchable.
