Martin Clunes (Men Behaving Badly) returns for the third season of Doc Martin as the brash doctor Martin Ellingham, whose blunt opinions and tactless manner causes mayhem in a small Cornish community. The series follows the celebrated London surgeon, Ellingham, whose truculence and tactless manner causes mayhem in a small Cornish community. After retraining as a general practitioner, he gets a job in the beautiful but sleepy village of Portwenn replacing their deceased local doctor. But his abrasive personality doesn’t exactly mesh with the pace of life in Cornwall.
The town also boasts a narcoleptic and agoraphobic police officer (John Marquez), a heavyset, affable plumber attempting to break into the restaurant business (Ian McNeice) and Martin’s spirited Aunt Joan (Stephanie Cole), a link to his past in Portwenn. There’s also his burgeoning romance with the town’s beautiful schoolteacher (Caroline Catz), a relationship sabotaged by Martin’s continuing case of foot-in-mouth disease.
Catch the all new season of Doc Martin on witf Saturday at 9:00pm and Thursday at 9:00pm.
