Meet Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes, Men Behaving Badly), an eminent physician with a nasty disposition. Forced to give up his career as a London surgeon after developing a blood phobia, he takes a job as GP in the sleepy Cornish village of Portwenn. His irascible manner and permanent scowl soon have the town in an uproar. He insults each patient he sees and offends nearly everyone else. The only person who's glad to see him is his Aunt Joan. Quirky characters, comic situations, and impossibly picturesque scenery have made Doc Martin a smash hit on both sides of the Atlantic. Clunes is brilliant as the arrogant physician with a head full of knowledge and no people skills. Will he throw in the towel or succumb to the charms of village life, including those of lovely schoolteacher Louisa Glasson (Caroline Catz, Murder in Suburbia)?
