“Absolutely bloody hilarious”—London Evening Standard

“Thoroughly charming” —The Guardian (UK)

He’s surly, self-centered, rude, and uptight—but he’s the only doctor in town. Martin Clunes (Men Behaving Badly) stars as Doc Martin, a hotshot London surgeon forced to change careers when he develops a fear of blood. Relocating to a sleepy, scenic Cornish fishing village, he offends everyone in town and falls in love with a beautiful teacher. Collection includes the first 4 seasons of this wildly popular Britcom seen on public television.

Disc 1
Doc Martin
After learning that his wife has been cheating on him, Doctor Martin Bamford impetuously leaves London for a week in a coastal village he visited as a child. Charmed by the scenery and the locals, he stays longer than he planned, makes friends, learns to fish, and helps solve a mystery.
 
Disc 2
Doc Martin and the Legend of the Cloutie
Now settled in as the local G.P., Doc Martin longs for privacy. Everyone in the village knows everything about his life. He wants to buy a large, isolated farm, but his plans fall through when a London family swoops in. To secure his dream home, the doctor uses local folk magic and invokes a fabled beast.

Two feature length stories take the character of Doc Martin Bamford (Martin Clunes) and remove him from a London obstetric practice and places him in Port Isaac, Cornwall. You'll love this scenery as much as in "Doc Martin: collection - Series 1-4", for those who, like me, watched the TV series first and now catch-up with the movies. They are great in their own right. It's true, SOME of the characters in this double-feature were first created by Craig Ferguson & Mark Crowdy in "Saving Grace", but I did not care for that first introduction of Martin nearly as well as these two stories. To be fair, most Amazon reviewers disagree with me on S.Grace.

Besides Clunes, carryover characters for both films include lobsterman Harvey (Tristan Sturrock who also played Harvey in S.Grace & Danny Steel in the TV series); Justine (Barbara Lott-`Ballet Shoes') a nosy shopkeeper; lovely Rita (Neve McIntosh-`Lady Audley's Secret') almost a lover; Petronella (Lynsey Baxter) the wife/cheater who caused Martin to leave; Cabbie Mitch (Mark Heap-a superstar postman in "Lark Rise to Candleford"); Pub owner Charley (Paul Brooke-"Bridget Jones Diary' and also Charlie in S.Grace); & Vicar (Stephen Moore). It's a stellar cast, good writing, and fantastic setting. You will notice similarities from scenes in these films, the TV series, & Saving Grace. All were filmed in Port Isaac, but in the TV series the name changed to Portwenn. The locals of this double feature as every bit as eccentric and delightfully common as those in the TV series. Awesome pub-style music by Mark Thomas.

Doc Martin- 87 minutes with SUBTITLES
Doc Bamford discovers his 3 doctor friends have been bedding his wife Petronella. Thus the trip to seclusion, which ends in Port Isaac mud and a lobster boat gig.

I have the Australian/Region 4 discs of the two DOC MARTIN movies which were released a few years back (and have since gone out-of-print).

Firstly, these movies are really good! I don't think most people would be disappointed, HOWEVER, to fans of the TV series, I must warn you that this Doc is NOT the same surly Doc from the ITV television show.

If you've ever noticed the end credits to an episode of DOC MARTIN, you might have noticed the credit "arising from the film SAVING GRACE." That is because the character of Doc Martin is based on the character Dr. Martin Bamford from that movie, who was also played by Clunes, and which was also set in the same fishing village (except under its real name of Port Isaac rather than the made-up name of Port Wenn).

After the film SAVING GRACE came out, Clunes' production company decided they'd like to do some more with the character and signed a deal with Sky television to produce a series of made-for-TV movies: two a year for what was to have been a three-year deal. The two movies in this collection, "Doc Martin" and "Doc Martin and the Legend of the Cloutie" were the only two that were made (as Sky Pictures went under before any others could be produced).

Both telefilms are "prequels" to SAVING GRACE and take place in the same "universe". In other words, the locations are the same and some of the supporting cast are the same. The first telefilm tells the story of how the Doc leaves behind city life to be in the country. The second film shows him as more-or-less established in the village.

To use a comic-book/sci-fi analogy, these movies (including SAVING GRACE) are set in a parallel universe to the ITV show.

I bought these two movies in Region 2, because as most good BBC/ITV they were not available here. Glad to see they now are.

I was a Clunes fan from Doc Martin, like most. I was not disapointed in these films. They do hold their own. Clunes is also great in "William and Mary." If you haven't seen it, check it out.

After watching these two movies courtesy of Netflix, I'm left thinking that "Doc Martin" from the series is a much better and much more humorous creation. "Doc Martin" in these two movies really isn't a particularly interesting character. He's just a doctor who after discovering his wife cheated on him wanders down to a Cornish coastal village and decides to stay. He may be a fish out of water but he's the not the truly exotic "fish out of water" of the series.

Don't get me wrong...the movies are watchable. But there aren't --at least for me-- any laugh out loud moments like the series is full of. The supporting cast in the movies isn't as good as the series either...with one exception, Neve McIntosh's "Rita" was a pretty interesting and bewitching putative love interest for Doc Martin in the movies (although nothing really happened with that story line). Caroline Catz of the series is great, but I think McIntosh's character would have fit in just as well in the series.

So I'd recommend not buying this movie set but getting it on Netflix or something similar.

I am a huge fan of the TV series Doc Martin, and thought I would like these movies. The character Doctor Martin Bahnford originally appeared in the film "Saving Grace" as the local doctor. This movie and the other(Doc Martin and the legend of the cloutie) takes place before this, and tells how he got to little town in Port Issac. Later the character was changed into Doctor Martin Ellingham in the TV series "Doc Martin".

So, this is not the same character as in the show, though I think you will enjoy this if you like the TV show or the movie "Saving Grace" (I love both).

Anyways, in this movie Doc Martin, a surgeon, runs away from his cheating wife to a small town in Port Issac. Here he ends up fishing and finds himself caught in the mystery of "the jelly maker". I don't want to spoil what the jelly maker does...but it is one of the most hilarious things that I have ever heard of or seen, and it is worth buying this just to see this hilarious plot. Many other things along the way are humorous, and there are scenes where the doc helps sick people.

I find the character Doctor Martin Bahnford to be a very interesting because he can be very nice to people (unlike the one in the TV show), yet still yell at things in humourous ways. Also, a few characters from "Saving Grace" are carried over and all of the locals, though they are crazy, are very likable. All great acting.

Anyways, I highly reccomend this to anyone especially if you enjoy the movie "Saving Grace", the show "Doc Martin", British TV, or just a very good and funny movie.
