Doc Martin: Series 5 DVD Review



Synopsis: Fatherhood hasn’t softened the dour Dr. Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes, Men Behaving Badly). He’s about to take a new position in London when events conspire to keep him in Portwenn. His infant son with Louisa (Caroline Catz, Murder in Suburbia) needs a name, his replacement doesn’t seem up to the job, and he receives devastating news. Like it or not, he’s stuck in the scenic Cornish village with its quirky inhabitants—most of whom have grudgingly grown rather fond of the grumpy doctor. Although Martin has largely mastered his fear of blood, he still has no clue how to manage his life. How can he cope with sleepless nights, an aunt with issues, a flaky new receptionist, Louisa’s hippie mother, and the usual village dramas? This season, Emmy® winner Eileen Atkins (Cranford) joins the cast of the award-winning British drama.

Review: How does one describe Doc Martin?  He's House, only grumpier and stranger.  He's a grumpy, grumpy man with a huge phobia of blood..complicated for a doctor, right?  Somehow he makes it work and in this season he is about to leave his little village for London, but his replacement isn't up to his high standards, so he stays and deals with his new child and the drama going on around him.  They're all crazy, its not him..is it?   This one is an absolute gem and one of the best British shows around!
