Saving Grace
Martin Clunes played the part of
the town doctor in this feature
film.  Sky Pictures liked his
character and commissioned two
television movies about the doc
(Doc Martin, and Doc Martin and
the Legend of the Cloutie).  
When they decided to make a
series (Doc Martin), they
completely changed his character.
Set in Port Liac (actually Port
Isaac), the story is about
newly widowed Grace and
how she saves her estate
after she discovers her
husband lost all his money
and completely mortgaged the
estate.  Martin is the town
doctor, a laid back man who
likes to smoke pot with
Grace's gardener.

Doc Martin
(television series)
S1E1  Going Bodmin
Martin Eliingham was an
eminent vascular surgeon in
London when he suddenly
develops haemophobia, the
fear of blood.  He retrains as
a GP and finds himself in a
small seaside fishing village
in Cornwall.

Martin must deal with the
quirky villagers who are
horrified at the doctor they
have been saddled with to
replace the late, great
Dr Sim.  Dr Sim was not a
very good doctor, but it
seems that a visit to the
surgery was seen as more of
a social experience, with tea,
biscuits and chat.  Even
though Doc Martin (who
prefers to be addressed as
"Dr Ellingham") is the best,
and most conscientious
physician they could ever
expect to attract to such a
small, remote village, they
really would prefer the tea
and biscuits.

A teacher in the local primary
school, Louisa Glasson, was
on the interview panel which
hired Martin over Louisa's
objections regarding his
bedside manner.  Although
she is often annoyed by his
refusal to fit into village life,
she finds herself drawn to
him.  And Martin just can't
seem to get the school
teacher out of his head or
his dreams.
