In the highly-anticipated Doc Martin Series 7, Martin Clunes reprises his role as Dr. Martin Ellingham, the G.P. with a brusque bedside manner and a phobia of blood.

Heartbroken after Louisa's (Caroline Catz) departure at the end of Season VI, the new series finds Martin ready to make some changes and win his family back.

Also returning are Dame Eileen Atkins (Aunt Ruth), Selina Cadell (Mrs. Tishell), Ian McNeice (Bert Large), Joe Absolom (Al Large), John Marquez (PC Penhale), and Jessica Ransom (Morwenna). Guest stars include Tristan Sturrock (Saving Grace), Caroline Quentin (Jonathan Creek, Men Behaving Badly), and Sigourney Weaver (Alien).

We start back in Portwenn with Martin, but Louisa is not there. After their tumultuous time last series, Louisa has gone for a break to visit her mother in Spain: to have some time to think and get some perspective on their relationship.

Martin is faced with the questions: will Louisa come back to him; and what can he do to make sure that she does? Martin knows that he needs to try and change for the sake of his marriage, and promised Louisa that he would see a therapist to try and effect this change.

Aunt Ruth manages to find him someone very well qualified to see - Dr. Rachel Timoney. However, life in Portwenn transpires to get in Martin's way, in the shape of Steve Baker, and the Lifeboat training exercise becomes a real‐life rescue.
