Two years on from Series 4 Doc Martin has returned to our screens and this series was well worth the wait. Formerly a highly successful surgeon who has developed a phobia for performing operations and in particular to the sight of blood, Doctor Martin Ellingham has started a new life as a GP in the quiet Cornish village of Port Wenn in the UK. However, having absolutely zero people skills and a nonexistent bedside manner, traits which extend to his personal life and in particular his relationship with his former partner, the long suffering Louisa, his dealings with the locals are somewhat uneasy.

The last series ended with Doc Martin wondering whether to move back to London, or stay in Port Wenn to support Louisa who has just given birth to their child. However, Doc Martin is less than impressed with his replacement as GP, and predictably decides to stay on. Quite a number of the plots this time round feature the rather haphazard child minding arrangements for the baby, and at one stage this is subcontracted out by Louisa's mother to some teenage girls at the bargain price of £2 (about $3) an hour! The climax to this series again revolves around the baby, but we do not have a cliffhanger ending this time round which I was grateful for as this always seems somewhat contrived.

Port Wenn is a quiet, country village and nothing of great significance seems to happen for a lot of the time. When something out of the ordinary does happen, it is played out to the full. For example, one episode is based on Bert Large, the restaurateur, borrowing £1,000 ($1500) from a wheelchair bound loan shark and his dim son, and being concerned about unspecified `repercussions' in the event of non repayment.

At first glance it wouldn't seem like a viable storyline for a television series, phobic doc goes to small town, has hilarious mini-adventures, often inspired by a seemingly endless local population of zany characters. Yet Doc Martin spins it own magical web, drawing the viewer ever more into the lives of these people and before long you're another diehard fan. It's sad Hollyweird can't seem to grasp how in an increasingly complex and stressful world it's not more shows about drug dealers, biker gangs, or dancing wannabes we want. Too bad, but after following British television for the last 3 decades, I've come to the conclusion America isn't a superpower when it comes to entertainment.

Doc Martin (Martin Clunes) had packed prepared for a new position out of Portwenn. But girlfriend Louisa, a nameless son, & Aunt did not love his planned exit. That was then. Now we have 8 new episodes, and enjoy you will. If not a Doc Martin groupie yet, you will be soon. Funny, heartwarming, and some of the quirkiest characters the UK has ever produced. Many of the old cast is back--like a family reunion.
Episodes have Subtitles for Hearing Impaired available, but works for accents too.
SUBTITLES also on film bonus stuff.
Graphic med. scenes. Behind-the-Scenes; photo gallery; and cast filmographies bonus.

Episode 1: Preserve the Romance
London can wait, a son doesn't. An incompetent replacement at Doc's practice arrives, then death. Will he claim Louisa's (Carolyn Catz is back) baby? Will love linger? Will Doc again pass out at the sight of blood? (Large men both return.) Ian McNiece & Joe Absolom.
2: Dry Your Tears
Don't drop the dead. Doc's back at home, Louisa too. Aunt Ruth (Eileen Atkins, a grande newie) replaces Aunt Joan, irritable as Doc. Al Large is handy, but will Doc head to London after all?
3: Born with a Shotgun
Baby no-name cries Doc & Louisa to their last nerve. Morwenna (Jessica Ransom), is new office help, but can she handle it? Bert's dizzy. Aunt Ruth robbed. Gramps Newcross (Peter Vaughn) saved. Dunwick's are odd--imagine that at Portwenn. Doc confuses patient names.
4: Mother Knows Best
A charity turns calamity. Bert Large restaurant dukes it out with a pub. Ma Eleanor (Louise Jameson-newie), surprise!, at least a baby sitter, surprise!, not good.
5: Remember Me
PC Penhale (John Marquez is back, yeah) surprised by an ex (Julie Graham). A Large quarrel. Locals face tetanus, chess, & beach lust.

I absolutely LOVE this series and it is addicting as others have mentioned. I love all the characters and their quirks, but the Doc himself and the struggle between him and Louisa are obviously what makes you want to keep watching. Season 5 release date of June 5 can't come fast enough!

And a previous reviewer is right, why can't American TV be this good? When they try to manipulate the already successful UK formulas into awful US-versions of the show, they of course flop (Touching Evil, Prime Suspect, etc). Maria Bello is the US version of Helen Mirren? Please!!! I find myself watching BBC and PBS shows most of the time...so if you do too, you'll really like this series as well as William + Mary, an older series Martin Clunes did.
