Introduced to Doc Martin on TPT. I am hooked! If you think you have had a bad day, than watch Doc. Martin.

The doctor is in!

Doc Martin is charming, hilarious, serious and amazing!

Doc Ellingham is one of the most interesting characters to come along for a while! Watch as Martin struggles with blood phobia, while tangling with the prickly, gossipy, but loveable residents of Portwenn.

If you like the british shows but want a more relaxed and light hearted version give this a go. It's written quite well and of course Martin Clunes as always tackles this role with not only amazing humor, but a softness that is refreshing. It's fun but not silly, it's lighthearted, but not intellectually insulting.

Brilliantly funny. Eccentric Brits in sleepy seaside village meet high-powered surgeon with unfortunate case of haemophobia.

This British 'dramedy' series, written and created by Dominic Minghella, is by far the absolute best I have ever seen. I don't have enough superlatives to praise it. Engaging characters, the lead being the smug and disgusted hemophobic iceberg (yet caring) Doc Martin himself, (who originated in the hilarious 2000 Craig Ferguson film: "Saving Grace"), portrayed exceptionally by Martin Clunes. Constantly antagonized by a stray dog that's adopted him, his snotty receptionist Elaine who feels superior to him, a wandering pack of giggling teenage girls, etc... The stories are brilliantly scripted. Biting, witty humor; sweet, touching drama. Caroline Catz (Louisa Glasson) and the supporting cast; the charming, cozy cove town; the theme music - I can't find one negative thing to say. It's utter perfection. I'm going to have to purchase the series. FIVE STARS.

(Aunt) Joan Norton: "Look, Marty, you do realise that the villagers are dusting off their pitchforks, don't you?" Dr. Martin Ellingham: "Yes. Exactly how many generations ago did the inbreeding start with these people?"

Dr. Martin Ellingham: "Bert, it's been a long day. Take two aspirin and insult me in the morning."
