Episode 5: Wild West Country

Summary

The acerbic GP investigates after local farmer Dennis Thorpe shoots at Robert for taking some of his eggs. Meanwhile, Emily returns to the surgery to see Martin after her acne medication caused a bad reaction, a secret bidder buys the Crab and Lobster pub, and Louisa ponders if she should see a fertility specialist

Review

I don’t want to begin this on a prurient note but I do worry about Louisa and her… marital relations with Martin. Ever since the two of them began their quest to have another child, he’s been treating her menstrual cycle like a science experiment. I’m not saying that romance is dead in the Ellingham household, but Martin’s seduction techniques could do with some finessing. At one point tonight, he enters the bedroom consulting a notebook and says, “You didn’t ovulate last month”. Not exactly a Marvin Gaye lyric, is it?

Thankfully, Martin is still a marvel at the surgery, this week’s most notable patient being actor Danny Huston. He’s been in everything from Leaving Las Vegas to Wonder Woman and now puts his smoky, raspy speaking voice to good use playing a gunshot victim with a secret.
