To the Lighthouse S9, E1: Martin's medical career remains under scrutiny as a GMC representative comes to assess Martin and his surgery. Al accidentally proposes to Morwenna and Mrs Tishell has a new lease on life. Meanwhile, Mel pries into a sibling for James Ellingham.
To the Lighthouse
As a hard-charging London surgeon, Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes, Men Behaving Badly) didn't need a bedside manner. His patients were unconscious, so he could be as rude and arrogant as he pleased. All that changes when he develops a crippling fear of blood and is forced to give up surgery. Now a GP in a sleepy, picturesque Cornish fishing village, Doc Martin offends everyone in town, including the one person he wants to impress, beautiful teacher Louisa Glasson (Caroline Catz, Murder in Suburbia). Getting her attention proves even more difficult when Louisa's old flame returns to the village and becomes his new rival. Martin Clunes shines in this award-winning comic drama set amid eccentric townsfolk and spectacular scenery. As the doctor says, "It's good to be loathsome."
