After developing a fear of blood, the brilliant and successful surgeon Dr. Martin Ellingham is forced to move from London to the Cornish Hinterlands and start a new career as a general practitioner. The villagers of Portwenn, who insist on addressing Ellingham as “Doc Martin,” offer little respite to the ailing physician as he juggles his quick-witted receptionist and incredibly kind-by comparison patients. It doesn’t help that Ellingham’s bedside manner is less than exemplary.
Despite his abrupt delivery and grouchy persona, even the villagers have to admit that Doc Martin is an incredibly capable physician. I mean, the man is so by the book he doesn’t even take off his suit jacket when delivering babies. Still, Doc Martin is making the most of it in his new Cornish fishing village home, and after nine series’ he’s even managed to hire a phlebotomist and fall in love with a friendly school teacher. You know, that whole “opposites attract” thing.

New shows are added weekly, so there’s always something new to catch once tea time rolls around.
