Some things never change for Doc Martin. The sun always shines. The people of Portwenn always bring him a supply of interesting maladies. And in the series finale he’s always seen speeding past tractors in his fancy silver saloon car, averting
a crisis that’s inconveniently happening out of town.

So it is tonight, as a long-term supporting character suddenly gets their moment in the spotlight via a slightly creaky personality change. At the end of a faintly disturbing but cosily predictable caper, there’s a clever and rather lovely tidying up of frayed ends.
You know where we’re going, but it’s how they get us there.

More importantly, achingly stupid PC Joe Penhale (John Marquez), who’s already one of the funniest characters on telly, really ups his game when there’s genuine peril about.


Mrs Tishell decides she can no longer hide her love for Martin and, fuelled by a cocktail of drugs, takes drastic action. While James Henry is in her care, she boards a bus out of Portwenn and leaves a message for Dr Ellingham to `meet them at the castle', forcing Martin, Louisa, Ruth and PC Penhale to mount a desperate search for the pair. Starring Martin Clunes, Selina Cadell and Caroline Catz.
