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.
