Martin Clunes stars in Doc Martin as a doctor whose truculence and tactless manner causes mayhem in a small Cornish community.
Martin (William and Mary, The Booze Cruise, Goodbye, Mr Chips) plays surgeon Martin Ellingham, whose glittering career comes crashing down around him when he develops a phobia which prevents him conducting operations.
He makes a life changing decision to retrain as a GP, and applies for a vacant post in the sleepy Cornish hamlet of Portwenn, where he spent childhood holidays.
If the patients are expecting tea and sympathy from their curmudgeonly GP they are going to be disappointed. Despite his surgical brilliance, he has no personal skills, and his understanding of humans is practically non existent.
Doc Martin and Louisa are finally going on a date. They have found the perfect spot for romance. Everything looks so promising. Surely Louisa must win her man?
Portwenn is buzzing with the news of the engagement of Doc Martin and Louisa Glasson. The Doc's puzzled about why Beth Sawle's knee replacement wound has become infected.
It's business as usual for Dr Martin Ellingham even though it's his wedding day. He opens the surgery as normal to a stream of patients, including one of the bridesmaids.
Life in the beautiful Cornish village of Portwenn has become ever more infuriating for Dr Martin Ellingham since his and Louisa's heart-rending decision to call off their wedding.
