Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
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).

Top Customer Reviews
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. Conditions run rampant with the cop being agoraphobic (going out fear) & narcoleptic (sleep disorder), and others with rashes, and then there was Doc's blood phobia, & inability to tenderize a relationship with Louisa.
...4 The GP Always Rings Twice--Admirers aplenty in Portwenn. A divorcee pursues Doc. Auntie Joan has 'relations' with a painter. The plumber/chef's son, Al, Pauline's old flame, returns. Then there's Princess Tinkle, she dog.
...5 Breaking Up Is Hard to Do--Pauline's gambling on the internet at the surgery. Doc & Louisa gamble on a real date. And kiss. Nothing's going very well leading up to an unrelated beach accident and a surprise outcome.
...6 The Two of Us--Portwenn engagement news is rampant. Aunt Joan hears by rumor--oops! Large Restaurant struggles as does many with fungus illness.
...7 In Sickness and in Health--A very pregnant bridesmaid shoots her eye with a party popper. The vicar's drinking. The reception patio is flooded. Wedding florist is arrested. The bad news continues on this the wedding day.
Delightful, warm, hilarious, witty, and quick dialogue moves this beautifully filmed series along so fast you'll be disappointed when the complete list of episodes are done. Then, like me, you have to click for a notification of Doc Martin, Series 4. I think I should go back and repeat Series 1-2-3 in the meantime.
