Greek Chorus   
Dr. Martin Ellingham is a successful London surgeon who decides to relocate to the seaside village of Portwenn to
practice medicine as a GP.  His reasons for doing so are his own and even his Aunt Joan, who lives locally, isn't quite
sure what his motivation is.  As Martin settles into the village he comes across the village characters: Bert Large and
his son, who as general handymen take on fixing the plumbing in Martin's house; Colonel Gilbert Spencer who has a
peculiar medical condition; and Louisa Glasson, the local school teacher who also happens to be the only member of
the local medical advisory committee to argue against Martin's hiring in the first place.  Martin's gruff demeanor and
poor bedside manner brings him into conflict with several locals and he seriously considers packing it in.
