|Martin's first official day on the job may be his last when he orders all and sundry, who seem to think the |
surgery is a town meeting place, out on the street. Having reached the end of his tether, he also fires his
receptionist Elaine, only to find that pretty well everyone in the village now shuns him. His Aunt Joan
suggests he should be a little more understanding, but that is not exactly Martin's style. One patient who
does remain is Roger Fenn who has a lump in his throat that Martin fears may be cancerous. In a quiet
moment, Martin reveals to him the phobia that has caused him to give up surgery and become a GP.
