You may think that Dr Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes) is one of a kind. But you’d be wrong. Peter Cronk (Preston Nyman), a young lad who’s on work experience at the surgery, is like a mini-Martin. He’s very knowledgeable about medicine, slightly pompous and laconic to the point of rudeness. His arrogance is infuriating and he has no social skills. Sound like someone else in Portwenn?

As well as dealing with him, Martin (the big one) is called out on two medical emergencies and attending therapy sessions with Louisa (Caroline Catz). It’s hard to tell which of them is the most tense, but the atmosphere between them is awkward with a capital A.


Louisa and Martin have their first therapy session together - though neither of them was expecting they would be given homework - while Morwenna is not happy about it when a teenager on work experience starts trying to boss her around in the surgery. Mrs Tishell is surprised when her husband Clive returns and tells her he wants to give things another go, and Louisa has to call Martin when one of her pupils collapses during a school excursion. Comedy drama, starring Martin Clunes and Caroline Catz.
