DOC MARTIN

ABC1, 7.40pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

Two fish­er­men find a dead drifter on the beach and take him to the Doc ( Martin Clunes). “Is he dead?” asks one. “No,” says the Doc, slap­ping him back to life in char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally, amus­ingly grumpy fash­ion. The drifter turns out to be a stalker, creep­ing Ruth ( Eileen Atkins) out by driv­ing slowly be­hind her as Psy­cho- style mu­sic plays. Mean­while, young stu­dent Becky ( Lily Laight) has been in jour­nal­ism all of five min­utes be­fore re­ceiv­ing her first law­suit threat, from Bert ( Ian McNe­ice), up­set over the sug­ges­tion his food is lit­er­ally poi­sonous. Nice scenery and char­ac­ters but could use some ad­di­tional drama.
