Product Description

In this delightful fish-out-of-water series, BAFTA-winner Martin Clunes (Shakespeare in Love) plays Martin Ellingham, a rude, self-centered doctor with a crippling phobia of blood. Formerly a hotshot London surgeon, he relocates to the idyllic seaside village of his youth and immediately offends everyone in town. He eventually earns the grudging respect of the local citizens, but what he really wants are the affections of Louisa Glasson (Caroline Catz, Murder in Suburbia), a beautiful schoolteacher. The second series sees the return of Louisa's former beau, a development that makes the good doctor even crankier. Also starring Ian McNeice (Dune) and Stephanie Cole (Waiting for God).

Doc Martin Series 3 is lacking only in quantity of episodes. This is too fun a series to settle for so few. Of course Series 1 & 2 helps. Rude, grumpy Doc (Martin Clunes) vomits at the sight of blood. You'll laugh at the sight of other townsfolk in this serene, beautiful, fictional Portwenn (filmed in Port Isaac, Cornwall). Aunt Joan (Stephanie Cole) is sane, almost, as is teacher Louisa (Caroline Cutz). Receptionist and phlebotomist Pauline (Katherine Parkinson) is outrageously funny along with Bert Large (Ian McNeice) and...well the list goes on with the regular cast.

If you love English seaside village views and homespun humor, this is a series that will tickle your fancy, every episode, and make you beg for more. Episodes tend to carry over to the next and all have SUBTITLES. This is some of the best British Doctor's Life Comedy/drama ever produced. The "Doc Martin Series" is to Medical Comedy what "Pie In The Sky" is to Police Comedy. (See my reviews on both.)

Bonus stuff includes cast filmographies and fun trivia along with subtitles.

For the detail minded:
..1 Tick Tock--Includes Pauline and Louisa seems to be trying to help doctor locals including a girl who jumps on car tops, her overweight mom, the fainting teacher Louisa, overlysleepy new cop, and a blind man with an untrained dog.
..2 The Morning After--Bert large changes from plumber to chef. Scenic Portwenn is hit with widespread food poinsoning, including Louisa, unrequited love to the stiff naive Doc. A general misdiagnosis also proves to be a huge error in source.
..3 Love Thy neighbor--Louisa's new neighbors, a psychologist, has strange parental practices for their brat son.

I have quickly become a HUGE fan of Martin Clunes, and after viewing the first two series of this show, I want MORE MARTIN CLUNES!!! Please, please, please release this show on a Region 1 US edition DVD, so I can continue to get my MARTIN CLUNES FIX. The show is phenomenal, I'm glued to my seat for every episode.I just can't wait to see the next installment of Doc Martin, Complete Series 3.

If you liked Doc Martin seasons 1 and 2, you will LOVE season 3. The side stories are funnier than previous seasons, and the relationship between the two leads finally moves on a bit. Martin Clunes once again fills the screen with his subtle, hilarious facial expressions. And more so than in previous seasons, Caroline Catz gets the chance to display her own perfect comedic timing, and gives Clunes some serious competition in the "rubber-faced" department! The ending isn't what one would hope for, but not to worry...there are eight more episodes to follow in season 4. Only complaint: Why did Acorn Media change the episode titles for North America??? Doc Martin has already aired in Canada with the originals. I found episode five's change from "The Holly Bears a Prickle" to "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" especially cheesy. Sorry, but the originals were far more clever and quirky...a much better fit, as Doc Martin itself is best described as the definitive clever and quirky television drama.

My husband, Bob and I absolutely love the Doc Martin: Series 1 and 2. When will more Series DVDs be released in Region 1, NTSC format, so we can get and watch them? The characters in these series are so real and natural, it is really refreshing and extremely enjoyable. We are really looking forward to seeing more of Martin Clunes as 'Doc Martin;' he is fabulous! It would be absolutely wonderful if these could be made in Region 1 format soon after they are released in Region 2, PAL format.
Thanks,
Bob and Sherry Harger

For those of us awaiting the eventual release of "Doc Martin: Complete Series 3" in the USA I've compared release dates from Amazon.co.UK and Amazon.com (USA). It doesn't look good.

Series 1: Released in UK Oct. 31, 2005; In US Jun. 12, 2007
Series 2: Released in UK Apr. 3, 2006; In US Jul. 28, 2009
Series 3: Released in UK Feb. 12, 2008; In US tbd...

I, along with the rest of you, am queued up with money in hand whenever Amazon is ready to take it.

This TV series is one of the best ever made, British or American! The actors are right on, quirky, funny, and believable. Just get comfy on the sofa in front of the TV. You'll be there for hours. Martin Clunes is so good, you can't imagine him (the character or the actor) being any other way. I can't wait for the 5th season and it hasn't even been filmed yet!!!

Season 3 of Doc Martin still delivers a comedy punch, wrapped in delightful scenery and scenarios. However, unlike Season 2 (the best, IMHO) this season suffers from far-fetched plots. Worse, some of the characters we've come to know & love lose their sparkle and depth. Season 3 will please die-hard Doc Martin fans, but those who appreciate subtle plot and character development will be disappointed.

First (not a spoiler, since it's revealed in episode 1), the greatest loss is that of PC Mark Mylow, played by the wonderful and bewitching Stewart Wright. Unlike Season 2's swapping in of Pauline for Elaine as Doc's receptionist (THANK YOU, writers! Who else couldn't stand Elaine?), PC Penhale is a ho-hum replacement. His character twists through a few plot turns that I found lame. With each episode, I just wanted Mark back. Thank goodness we viewers still get to visit Portwenn's other colorful characters, including Mrs. Tishell (played by Selina Cadell).

A few of the other "flattened" characters in this season are Pauline and Auntie Joan. Episode 4 focuses on, ahem, a highly improbable and slightly off-putting aspect of Joan's life (so out of character I wondered if I was hallucinating). In episode 5, Pauline's behavior takes a bizarre turn -- one that's summarily ignored in the rest of the series. It's just... odd, as though the writers don't understand how to make these characters three-dimensional.

Another bittersweet character note: the Large men (Bert and Al) are back -- although Bert's not quite so large anymore! (The DVD's trivia feature reveals that Ian McNeice lost 70 pounds before Season 3 was filmed. It shows.) Their interplay is lovely, and yet I can almost hear the show's creators/writers struggling to provide them with a new set of challenges.
