Doc Martin

Doc Martin S3

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.
