THE WAIT IS FINALLY OVER! The long awaited highly anticipated new season of Doc Martin is finally here! And none to soon, as we have heard from our viewers who have been waiting patiently for their Doctor's appointment. So here it is...
The drama about a curmudgeonly country doctor and his patients in Cornwall returns for a new season. Martin returns to Portwenn, but without Louisa. She has gone to stay with her mother in Spain to take some time out to think, and Martin is left wondering if she will ever come back. Aunt Ruth has found him a therapist, but life in Portwenn continues to get in the doc's way - in the form of Steve Baker and his lifeboat training exercise. Steve and his assistant Barry are supposed to be helping Al get everything ready for the guests' arrival, but the pair are never there and the walls still need plastering. Al cannot rely on his father for help as Bert has taken the hump. Morwenna cannot help either as her flatmate Janice has roped them both into the lifeboat training exercise. Then Steve collapses, and the training exercise becomes all too real as Martin and PC Penhale race out to sea.
