Doc Martin, ABC, Sunday at 7.40pm
MARTIN Clunes stars as Dr Martin Ellingham, the GP with a brusque bedside manner and a phobia of blood, in season eight of the hugely successful drama set in the idyllic hamlet of Portwenn in Cornwall.
Caroline Catz plays Doc Martin’s wife and local school headmistress, Louisa Ellingham.
After having therapy to save their marriage in the last series, they face the challenge of living happily together.
Dame Eileen Atkins also returns as Doc’s formidable Aunt Ruth, who is beginning to doubt the wisdom of going into business with Bert Large and his son Al.
Bert is desperate to make his whisky a success, but there’s a shortage of customers. Meanwhile guests are not flocking to Al’s bed and breakfast, and he fears he will have to close the doors.
