Midwife Crisis
Portwenn Online
A Magical Cornish Village
Doc Martin is
Director:  Ben Bolt
Writer:  Ben Bolt
Martin has to put up with Molly O'Neal, the new local midwife whose patients include Louisa.  She
convinces Louisa not to take the antibiotics he has prescribed.  Molly is something of a feminist and it
isn't obvious whether she has the bigger problem with traditional medicine or just with the fact that
Martin is a man.  Martin has been working on his phobia and seems to be making some progress.  He
hears from Edith Montgomery that the position in London will be available in six weeks time - provided
he can convince everyone his problem with blood is a thing of the past.  Meanwhile, Al and Bert Large
have to deal with Marigold Marley, whom they've hired as a cook and who seems to specialize in
preparing roadkill.  Marigold is something of a flirt and Bert takes a shine to the married woman.  Their
liking of wild game however also means Martin's services will be required.
