Doc Martin is
IN
Louisa and Martin are exhausted as the baby isn't sleeping well and is keeping them up at all hours.  
They're a bit surprised by the unexpected arrival of Louisa's mother, Eleanor.  Louisa and her mother
are not close but Eleanor says she 's come to help and plans on staying for as long as she's needed.  
She certainly seems to have a positive effect on the baby who suddenly takes to long naps.  Martin
immediately becomes suspicious.  PC Penhale is busy organizing a weekend fun run but the main
entertainment seems to be the feud between Bert Large and pub owner Mark Bridge after the
publican sets up a large tent to serve proper meals.
