A Magical Cornish Village
Doc Martin is
IN
Kitchen
The Kitchen changed greatly from Series 1 to Series 2.  In Series 1, I believe they used a kitchen in
a cottage somewhere in or around Port Isaac.  There were actually very few scenes set in the
kitchen that first series, so it makes sense that they were able to procure it a couple of times to
shoot all of the scenes.  In Episode 1, just a short scene with Martin and Eileen.  In Episode 3, the
night scene when Martin is brewing tea and Bert comes in to deliver some of his bottled water.  
And then in Episode 5 there were several scenes - most of them very short.  Some with Eileen, a
couple with Martin and Aunt Joan, and a couple of Martin at night before heading up to sleep.  
One feature of this kitchen is that there is no opening to the Living Room - there is a window
visible in a couple of small glimpses we get of that wall.  (In the few Living Room shots that first
series, they actually shot in the room in Fern Cottage, which is used only for exterior filming.)

When they came back to film Series 2, they had constructed a set in the barn for the Kitchen and
Living Room.  They really did a nice job of making the set as similar as possible to the room used
in the first series.  You can see the comparisons in the Series 1 section below.

The room is almost completely open on the front to the Living Room, which is 2 steps down from
the Kitchen.  There is a sloped ceiling that starts above the windows on the back wall and rises
up at an angle toward the Living Room.  We've never really gotten a view of the front part of that
ceiling, but the ceiling in the Living Room is back to normal height.  On the right wall is a door
with a large stained glass insert.  This door leads down a short hallway to the Consulting Room
and the Waiting Room and is usually kept open, but has been closed on a few occasions.  Along
the back wall are two double hung windows, the one on the left is flanked by two narrow sidelight
windows.  The window on the right is opaque stained glass panels, similar to the one on the
hallway door.  Below the windows is a long counter that contains the sink, stove, sometimes a
dishwasher or under-counter fridge, and a few open and closed cabinets.  At the left end of the
back wall is a door leading out to the patio behind the surgery.  The left wall contains the door to
a small pantry, and the short front wall (that's not open to the Living Room) has a large wooden
hutch with closed cabinet space and two drawers below, and open shelving above.

Series 1
.
There were a limited amount of scenes set in the Kitchen in the first series, so I believe that production leased out a
cottage somewhere in or near Port Isaac to film those scenes.  For S2 they constructed the kitchen set in the barn and
they did a pretty good job recreating a similar room.

On the left are the screenshots from S1 and corresponding views from S2 on the right.
.
.

.

Here is a layout of the Kitchen.

.
.
Front Left Corner
.
In this corner of the room are a couple of different points of interest.  To the right
of the opening to the Living Room is a small piece of wall that sometimes has a
hanging picture and is sometimes blank.  It also sometimes has a chair sitting
against the wall next to the hutch.  The hutch is a large cabinet with a 3 shelf open
hutch on top.  See the Kitchen Overview above for more info about the hutch and
how it sometimes moves along that wall.  To the right of the hutch, the corner is
usually empty, but starting in S6 there is a chest-tall fridge in that area.  On the left
wall, very near the corner is usually some type of hanging picture or bulletin board.
.
.
.
Series 2
.
.
.
In this series we get slightly better looks at the hutch.  There is nothing on the
wall to the left of the hutch this series.  Again, the hutch contains a lot of
unremarkable serving pieces, along with some plates and cups.  On the left side
of the middle shelf is a wicker basket that will move to the Living Room in S4.  
There is a wooden case for one of Martin's clocks, but it doesn't look like it
contains the clock workings.  There's an ivory radio that appears to be Bakelite,
and a cute green stubby lamp.  The picture on the left wall is an old black & white
photo of the fishermen's storage units on the Platt.  If you look at the photo, in the
upper right corner is where the balcony to The Golden Lion was added years later.  
Below the picture, the metal and canvas director's chair is still there.

In Series 2, there weren't very many views of this area - most of the screenshots I
was able to get are pretty blurry.  There were 2 B&W old photos hanging on the
wall to the left of the hutch, and no chair beneath.  The hutch, in this series only,
was painted dark brown with white insets on the lower cabinet doors.  There were
plates, cups, serving pieces in the hutch, but again, not many good views of them.  
In one view there is a tall lamp visible at the right end.  On the left wall is a small
rectangular seascape painting - this painting moved to the Consulting Room for S3
& S4.  Against the wall below the painting was a metal and light colored canvas
director's chair (there are either a pair of them or this one is occasionally moved to
the right wall just to right of the hall door).  In the Christmas Special, we only got a
quick glimpse of that area and the only change was to the lamp - the new one was a
stick lamp with a small white pleated shade.
.

Ceiling
.
The kitchen ceiling slopes up from the back wall at about a 30° angle toward the front wall of the room.  There
is a large skylight in the ceiling.  Starting in Series 2, the skylight covers much of the ceiling and looks to be
made from corrugated plastic.  In Series 4, it has changed - the inset area of the skylight has been filled with
wooden planks and there are at least 2 (possibly 3) sets of triple glass panes.
.
.
.
.
.
Floor
.
Here are some
shots of the
sides of the room
showing the
vaulted ceiling.
.
.
The floor seems to be some
type of vinyl floor covering with
a speckled pattern.
.
Below are good looks at the large opening between the Living Room and Kitchen - the hutch is behind the small
piece of wall at the left.  You can see the 2 steps up to the kitchen and the double wooden corbels at the top of
the walls on either side of the opening.

Architectural Details
.
.
.
.
.
The back wall is mostly unchanged
throughout, with the two windows and the
long counter beneath.  Starting at the left is
a cabinet - in S2 it started out as half open
shelves and half closed.  In S3 and S4 it has
been converted to a dishwasher, replaced
by an undercounter fridge in S5, and back
to a dishwasher starting in S6.

Next is a farmhouse sink under the large
window, then a countertop with a cabinet
with double wooden doors below.  Next is a
stove under the smaller, stained glass
window, then another counter that extends
to the wall.  Underneath this counter is
open shelving and a small one door wooden
cabinet.  Above that one door cabinet are
some shallow shelves built into the wall.
.

.
.
The counter at the far left is a divided
cabinet in S2 (on the right) and is
converted to hold a dishwasher or
fridge starting in S3 (below).
.
.
.
.
The lower cabinets were unfinished wood through S5, but were painted a medium grey color in S6.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Both windows are double hung.  
The one on the left is flanked by
two narrow sidelight windows,
and the one on the right is
opaque with stained glass
inserts.  I've included different
views that show some of the
detail and included a night shot.

Hutch
.
.
.
The hutch sits against the front
wall of the Kitchen - directly
across from the back door.  It's
a large wooden piece of
furniture consisting of a two
door cabinet with 2 drawers
above, topped by an open
hutch with three shelves.

In S2 the unit was a dark brown
with white painted insets on
the cabinet doors.  Starting in
S3, the entire unit was painted
the beige/grey color that
matches the walls.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Series 2
.
The hutch has moved a little bit
between some series.  In S2
and S3 it was about 2 feet away
from the wall at the right, but in
S4 it was moved right up
against the wall.  In S5 it was
back about 2 feet away.  In S6 it
was probably moved a little bit
further away to accommodate
the new fridge in the corner -
and has remained there ever
since.

Doors
.
.
There are 3 doors in the Kitchen.

The one that is noticed most is the back door that leads to the patio.  Starting in S2 it was a Dutch Door (one that is split
vertically to allow the top of the door to open independently).  For S4 and S5 it was replaced by a more traditional
wooden door with 5 multicolored opaque windows.  The opaqueness of the windows in this door provided a tense
moment at the end of the first episode of S4 when Louisa's silhouette was seen through the door.  In S6 the Dutch Door
was repainted and installed again - and has remained ever since.  Having this type of door allows family, friends,
patients, to just arrive at the door and help themselves into the house because the top of the door is often left open.

The door to the hallway on the right wall of the Kitchen is a wooden door with a patterned opaque window, surrounded
by colored opaque glass panels.  The colors of these panels can look lilac, purple, or burgundy depending on the light.

The third door is a simple, unfinished wooden door to the pantry.  This door has 4 panels of glass, 3 of them are heavily
patterned opaque glass and the one at the lower left is plain, slightly opaque glass.
.
.
.
.
Series 2-3
.
The back door in S2 and S3 is
dark brown with white painted
plank panels.  The outside of
the door is painted white and
has black wrought iron
decorative hinges, lock, and
handle.  The small, square
window in the top of the door
is bullseye glass and almost
impossible to see through.

This door returned in S6,
although it has been painted
beige/grey.  The only other
change is that the handle on
the outside of the door has
been updated and the bullseye
glass window might be a new
one - the edges of the glass
seem a little more see through.
.

Series 4-5

.
.
.
.
The hall door is a brown painted
wooden door.  In S2 & S3 the
two lower panels were painted
white, but they were painted
brown to match the rest of the
door in S4.  The large window
on the top half of the door is a
patterned opaque glass with
colored panels surrounding
(divided by mullions).  The
colored glass looks lilac,
purple, or burgundy depending
on the lighting.  

The door is almost always
open - we've only seen it
closed a handful of times.
.
.
.
.
.
The pantry door is an unfinished
wooden door.  It has 4 panes of
glass on top - 3 are heavily
patterned opaque glass and
the lower left pane is plain,
slightly opaque glass.

There was a small red sign in
the lower left pane that is
impossible to read.  It
disappeared in S3E3 and
never returned.
.
.
Oops!  Someone forgot to
hang the door in this scene
from S7E2.  This is the only
time the door is missing.
.
The Front Left Corner
of the room held a
large wooden cabinet
with a phone, lamp,
and various kitchen
items on top.  The
set was built with a
large hutch in this
area with 3 shelves
above the cabinet.
.
.
.
.
.
The Back Left Corner
has a solid pantry
door and the back
door is a blue door
filled with glass
panes.  On the new
set is a pantry door
with windows, a coat
rack by the door, and
a wooden door with
a small opaque
window.
.
.
.
The two windows are
much farther apart,
deeper, and have a
number of divided
panes.  In the set
they used more
modern double
hung windows
.
.
.
In the S1 Kitchen,
there was a cabinet,
stove, a small open
space, sink, cabinet,
and a tall wooden
cabinet in the corner.

In the set, it became
a cabinet, sink,
cabinet, stove,
cabinet.  No tall
wooden cabinet in
the corner, but 2
shallow shelves
built into the wall.
.
.
.
.
The tall corner
cupboard and the
new kitchen with the
inset shelves in the
corner.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
In S1, the table was
pushed against the
right wall.  The
doorway to the hall
had 2 steps up.  The
front of the room has
a wall instead of the
large opening to the
Living Room.

For the set, they put
the table right in the
middle of the room.  
The door to the hall
now has 2 steps
DOWN (just as the
opening to the Living
Room is 2 steps
down).
.
.
.
.
.
There was no
opening to the
Living Room in S1,
but you can see a
window in that wall.  
It had a curtain in E1
and blinds later in
the series.  When
they built the set,
they made the
Kitchen and Living
Room almost one
room.
.
In E1, there was a cabinet on
the wall of the hall.  It was gone
in subsequent episodes.
.
.
The hallway in the first series does not lead right into
the Kitchen.  Instead, at the end of the hallway is a
round window and a crossing hallway that leads to the
Kitchen on the right and the Living Room on the left.  
In the pictures below you can see Martin walking from
the Kitchen to the Consulting Room.  Right behind him
is one of the movers carrying a box to the Living
Room.  I've included a shot from a later series
showing how the hallway looks starting in S2.
.
.
.
Below is a drawing of my estimation of
the Surgery in S1.  It seems like there
must be some type of courtyard between
the Kitchen and Living Room.  There is
the round window in the hall and the
window in the Kitchen that would look
into this courtyard.
.

Cottage and sometimes the

Some changes in this series.  The hutch has been moved over to the corner and
the right edge now sits up against the left wall.  This creates more room on the left
side for a larger painting on the wall.  For the first time we see a wooden kitchen
chair up against that small piece of wall.  In this series there were 3 different chairs
spotted there.  Starting in this series there were lots more interesting pieces on
the hutch.  They include the wooden mantle clock that we saw in the Consulting
Room and Living Room in S1-3, the ivory Bakelite radio from S3, the 2 black &
silver tumblers that were in the Consulting Room in S1-3, a small wooden box with
possible ivory inlays that matches one in the Waiting Room this series, a wooden
coffee grinder, and a short white ceramic lamp.

The picture on the left wall is a print based on a figure in a Mongolian painting from
1280.  It was a painting of Kublai Khan by Liu Guandao.  The canvas director's chair
is gone - not to be seen again.

Note the 3 different
wooden kitchen chairs
sitting against this wall.
.
.
.
.
.
The hutch was moved back to the center of the small wall.  Not many good views to
the left, but it doesn't appear that anything was on that wall this series, nor did I
see any chairs against the wall.  The hutch was slightly more organized this series
and had a lot of plates leaning against the back, several pitchers and teapots, and
some egg cups.  Notable items include a glass jar filled with wine corks, a tall
ceramic (or cloisonne?) urn, and a short metal lamp with a tiffany glass shade.  The
urn showed up on the Living Room mantel in S7-8.  The painting on the left wall in
this series was a little different than usually found in the surgery - it might be an
Italian piazza? (Perhaps Dr Dibbs' style?)  In this series, we see a couple of
different wooden chairs in this corner instead of to the left of the hutch as in
previous series.
.
.
Series 5
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
There is nothing on the wall to the left of the hutch this series, but 2 different
chairs were spotted there.  We also occasionally saw a brocade tasseled pillow on
the seat and a crocheted afghan on the back (This afghan shows up in the waiting
room in S7-8).  To the right of the hutch is a new tall fridge, and on top are some
books and matching green items - a bowl, plate, and tall pitcher.  Inside the bowl is
a large multicolor striped ball and what looks like a pineapple.  There is no artwork
on the left wall this series - but a large bulletin board is in its place and is pretty
well covered with different pieces of paper and pictures.  The hutch goes back
and forth from organized to disorganized - probably Michael and Louisa battling
each other.  We see a large tin (olive oil possibly?), the jar filled with corks,
several different gold tea service pieces, a lot of green plates, cups, and glasses,
a light green glass bowl with a silver pedestal (this was in the Consulting Room in
S5), (a bronze glass pitcher and the light green glasses match some that are in the
Consulting Room this series), the little metal bird that was in the window over the
sink in S5 shows up a couple of times, the green Buddha head (that was in the
Consulting Room in S4 and the Waiting Room in S5), and a new classic radio.  In
this series we get a couple of peeks to see what's inside this piece of furniture.  
One shot of the interior of the left drawer, and a couple of times in the lower right
cabinet.  Funny - because the first time (Ep 2) it was filled with serving dishes and
pans (same as in S5 when Morwenna went on a cleaning spree), but in Ep 4,
Martin opens up the same cabinet door and it's filled to the brim with boxes and
tins of food.
.

Series 6

This shot has good views
of the container of corks,
one of the gold teapots,
the large tin container,
the metal bird, and the
green Buddha head.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Still no picture on the wall to the left of the hutch, and an old wooden chair sitting
against the wall.  The items in the hutch have not changed substantially from the
last series.  The metal bird and the Buddha head are gone - the Buddha head has
moved to the Living Room.  The one notable new addition is some of the small
brown bowls with the red interiors.  We have seen them in the Consulting Room
and the Waiting Room in different series.  On top of the fridge is a brown metal
canister that has a locking lid - the canister occasionally moved down to the lower
shelf of the hutch.  The bulletin board remains on the left wall and they added one
of the small landscape paintings in the tramp art frames that was first seen in the
Living Room in S5 and moved to the back wall of the Kitchen in S6.  
.

Series 7
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Again, no pictures on the wall to the left of the hutch, but the chair against the wall
is a much more delicate looking wooden one than we normally see in the Kitchen.  
The items in the hutch are mostly unchanged from the previous series.  There is a
potted plant (looks like some type of succulent) and a small vase with silk flowers
that moves from the hutch to the top of the fridge.  The brown metal canister is
still on the fridge and we occasionally see the large multicolored stripped ball.  
The front of the fridge, for the first time, holds the rota and magnetic letters and
numbers that you often see in a home with children.  The left wall is unchanged
with the bulletin board and the small landscape.

Pantry
.
In the middle of the left wall is a wooden door to a small pantry.  The door has 4
glass panes - 3 of them are textured opaque and the lower left one is non-textured
and only slightly opaque.  There was a little red sign in the lower left window in S2
and it remained there until S3E3 when it disappeared and we never saw it again
(could not read what it said).  The interior of the room is covered in a beige and
light brown patterned wallpaper.  Across from the door is a tiny mullioned window
set high on the wall.  On that wall is a counter with a pair of white appliances
below.  The one on the right is a clothes washer and on the left is either a
dishwasher or a small fridge - it changed a few times.  On the left are several
shelves attached to the wall.  We only get a few glimpse of them, but they contain
miscellaneous items, including food in one episode.  We never see the right side
of the room.
.
.
Series 2
.
.
In this series a blue wooden shelf that looks like a large birdhouse is sitting on the
counter right below the window.  In the window are a couple of clear glass bottles.  
We can spot a small framed picture leaning against the wall on the left, and on the
right, in E1, there is a framed print that will hang in the Kitchen in the Back Right
Corner starting in E3.  In a couple of different screenshots we can see the fridge
on the left (Martin puts the carton of milk in there in E4), an open area that seems
to be storing trays and maybe cutting boards, and a clothes washer on the right
(this is the only time we see the round front window on the machine).  The little red
sign on the door is there for E1 & E2, but is gone starting in E3.
.
.
Series 3
.
.
.
.
.
There was only one shot of this room in S2 and we could barely make out what
might have been in there.  I'm assuming that the white appliance we can see was
a fridge, because there was not one visible in the main area of the Kitchen.
.
.
Not much of a look into the pantry during this series.  The blue birdhouse shelf is
still there and the fridge is still visible.
.
.
Series 4
.
.
There are a couple of changes this series.  The fridge has been moved out to
under the counter on the back wall - replacing the dishwasher.  The dishwasher
that was there is now on the left side of the pantry.  I have to assume that the
appliance on the right is a clothes washer, but it doesn't have a window on the
front, and it couldn't be a top loader since it is under a counter.  Not sure what else
it could be.  The blue birdhouse shelf is still there.  For the first time we can see
the shelves along the left wall.  In the first few episodes, it's a tall shelf with
wooden hooks underneath (this was the shelf on the wall in the Back Left Corner
next to the back door in S2 and S3).  But in Ep 4, Louisa goes into the pantry
looking for her chocolate biscuits and it's now 3 shelves covering that wall.  But in
later episodes it goes back to the tall shelf.
.
.
Series 5
.
.
Now that the house is a family home, this room has been turned into mainly a
laundry room.  The 3 shelves on the left wall are back and the large blue birdhouse
shelf is gone.  The dishwasher is still on the left (although a new silver one has
been installed under the back counter - so they have 2 now).  There's a new silver
towel rack attached to the front of the counter.  In one shot we can see just the top
of what looks like a pretty floral painting - but I've never seen it anywhere else.  
Mostly we see plastic and wicker laundry baskets and drying racks.
.
.
Series 6
.
.
.
There are only a couple of shots into the messy laundry room.  The dishwasher is
still there on the left and the new towel bar seems to be broken hanging off the
edge of the shelf.
.
.
Series 7
.
.
With the family more settled into the house, this room has been cleaned up - the
broken towel bar has been removed, a pitcher of silk flowers and a vase of pussy
willows sit on the counter, but the wallpaper is starting to pull away from the wall.  
There's a straw hat on the counter, and in some of the episodes we can see the
large round straw basket that has been in the Waiting Room for several series.  The
2nd dishwasher is still visible.  
.

In E2, there is a shot from inside the
pantry while Martin and Louisa are setting
the table for dinner.  You can see the
basket on the shelf that was visible all
through this series.

Back Left Corner
.
This area of the Kitchen has two features - a wall mounted shelf/coatrack, and the
door that leads to the back patio.  The shelf is made from wood and has several
wooden pegs.  On top of the shelf are a variety of decor items that change from
series to series.  
.
.
In this series there are 3 potted plants on the shelf and a couple of unidentified
objects.  One of the items hanging on the hooks is a string of small wooden fish -
we will see these appear hanging on these hooks on and off in all but S4 and S6.  
The door is the white painted Dutch door.
.
.
Series 2
.
.
.
.
There are two different shelves that
occupy this space.  In S2 and S3 it's
painted a light green color and has 5
square-ish pegs.  Starting in S4 a
new shelf appears that is painted a
beige color to match the wall.  This
one has 7 round pegs.
.
.
.
There are 3 different back doors in
the kitchen.  The one in the first
series (not the kitchen that was
constructed on the set) was painted
royal blue and had glass panes
covering most of the door.  When
they constructed the set, it became
a wooden Dutch door with a small
window with bull's eye glass. The
door was painted white on both
sides, with brown wooden trim on
the inside of the door.  The outside
of the door had large decorative
strap hinges.

In S4 there was a new door.  It was
a one piece door with panels on
the bottom and 5 pebbled glass
windows on top in different colors.  
This door remained for S4 & S5.

Starting in S6, the Dutch door
returned.  It had a new paint job -
more of a beige color all over
(inside and out) that matched the
interior walls.  In addition to the
color, the outside handle was
changed, and the bull's eye glass
window looks like it might have
been changed.  It's very similar, but
I'm not sure it's the same piece of
glass.
.

In Series 3 there are a few recognizable items on the shelf.  There is a large brown
metal canister and a wooden sailboat with fabric sails.  I'm not able to identify the
other smaller items.  Hanging from the hooks during this series were the string of
fish, a light grey & white striped apron, various dish towels, and a colorful towel
depicting Cornish Harbours - that towel shows up all around the kitchen over the
run of the show.  The door is unchanged from Series 2.

There were a lot of changes in the kitchen this series, and that includes the new
shelf.  The old green one appeared in the pantry for part of Series 5 before it
disappeared.  This new shelf is painted to match the walls and has 7 pegs.  The
pegs aren't all perfectly lined up, and the second one from the left always looks
slightly higher than the rest.  The light grey & white striped apron still hangs there
and another one that Martin wears, white with horizontal grey stripes at the
bottom, also appears there at times - and one time was draped on the radiator
below.  We also see a couple of dish towels, and all series long there is a suit
brush hanging there. On top of the shelf are 2 tall clear glass decanters, a carved
wooden clock that was in the Consulting Room in S2 & S3, a matching pair of short
dark ceramic (?) containers, a matching pair of short clear glass containers, and a
bean pot.  For this series only, there were radiators found in several places in the
Surgery - including this one on the wall below the shelf.

The other change is the new back door.  The new one is a one piece wooden door
with panels at the bottom and 5 pebbled glass windows on top in different colors.  
The interior side of the door is painted to match the walls and the exterior side is
painted black, but is very well-worn.

In Series 5 there are a number of items on the shelf.  A decorative plate that has
what looks like a fish in high relief.  On both ends of the shelf are pairs of small
pottery apothecary jars, one white pair and one dark brown pair.  We see these
small jars all over the Kitchen and even in the Living Room.  There is also a gold
colored covered sugar bowl, a pair of the green glasses that match ones in the
hutch, and a brown pottery mug.  Hanging on the pegs are the wooden fish, two
different aprons, and an assortment of scarves and jackets.  In two episodes (E3
and E5) the sweater that Louisa wore in Series 4 (E6 when she was running the
high fever) is hanging there.

The door is unchanged from Series 4.

In this series there are an assortment of nondescript bottles and vases on the
shelf.  But there are two interesting things that are tucked in between most of the
time - a small photograph of a baby (is it supposed to be James?) and a small
clamshell - there is a matching one on the window above the sink.  In E6, the third
peg from the right was damaged and hung much lower than the rest (you can see
in a couple of the pictures below).  It was fixed in the next episode.  There were an
assortment of jackets, sweaters, scarves, and tote bags hanging there this series.

In Series 6, the Dutch door returned to the Kitchen with just a couple of slight
changes.  It was painted to match the walls on both the interior and exterior sides
of the door.  The decorative strap hinges and lock remain, but the pull on the
outside of the door is new.  The window appears to be the same as when the door
was there in S2 & 3, but it looks slightly different, so it may have been changed.

The top of the shelf this series has a chaotic mix of items.  There is a small wooden
boat with 2 masts but no sails, a tall light green glass bottle with a cork, one of the
brown apothecary jars, a large decorative fish on a stand, and several other
miscellaneous items.  On the pegs, the wooden fish are back after missing last
series, plus jackets, scarves, tote bags.  One new item is an adorable pair of
black & white striped children's wellies.

The Dutch door is unchanged.

The chaos on top of the shelf continued this series with a couple of recognizable
additions.  The boat, tall glass bottle, brown apothecary jar, and decorative fish are
still there and one of the white apothecary jars and a red venetian glass candle
holder have been added.  A lot of chaos on the pegs also - the wooden fish,
jackets, scarves, tote bags, the cute children's wellies, and another sweet addition
was a blue knitted child's sweater. Off and on during the series, the left peg was
missing - it was missing in parts of E3 and E5.

Counter Area
.
The counter runs across the back wall and has two double hung windows above,
one over the sink and one over the stove.
.
.
Starting on the left counter, there is a chrome dish drying rack, a knife block, and
sometimes we see cutting boards leaning against the wall.  

The sink has a nice tall chrome faucet, and behind the faucet there is a chrome
rack with cleaning utensils, a row of succulent plants on the windowsill, and a
small framed piece of stained glass on the right leaning against the window.  

On the middle counter, in front of the window is a container of cooking utensils, a
red timer, a small decorative plate leaning against the wall, and the items that
Martin uses to brew his coffee.  It includes a lucite water filtration pitcher, a metal
canister holding the coffee grounds, and a Moka Pot stovetop espresso maker (He
finally gets a countertop espresso maker in S3).  Above this counter is wall space
that usually has some type of art.  In this series there is a small B&W beach print,
and a wooden towel holder is mounted on the wall below.  Later in the series, the
picture was removed from the wall and set on top on the radio on the counter to
the right.

On the stove is a very modern stainless tea kettle and another one that might be
an electric kettle.  On the widowsill are a couple of unidentified items and a few
more succulent plants.

On the right counter are various bottles that may contain oil, vinegar, sherry,
whiskey (?)  An antique radio sits on this counter and there looks to be some type
of metal rack on the counter in front.  At the far end (in the corner) are various
unidentified items with glassware and serving ware on the shelves above.  The
shelves below the counter seem to house pots and pans and round bamboo
steamers.

The backsplash behind the counter has had three different looks.  In S2 - S3, there was no backsplash, but for
S4 - S5 a tall tile backsplash was added.  For S6+ the tile was removed and a black substance was installed
there - it looks like it might be the same material as the countertop.

Starting from the left is a wooden
cabinet that has open shelves on the
left and a single door on the right -
although it only looks like that in S2.

In S3, it is cleared out and frames a
white dishwasher.  But that only lasts
one episode, because in E2, part of the
storyline is that Martin is installing a
new, silver dishwasher.  

But then, in S4, there's yet another
new white dishwasher.  

For S5, it's replaced by an under the
counter fridge - they used a similar, but
different small fridge in the pantry in  
previous series.  

Then in S6 (and continuing through S8),
a dishwasher is back in this spot -
another new silver one.  (A new tall
fridge is on the other side of the room.)
.
Next is a traditional
farmhouse sink.  It sits
on a wooden base with
a small cabinet door at
the bottom.
.
Then we have a wooden
2 door cabinet.  
.
Next is the stove.  There
have been 3 different
stoves - they were
changed in S4 and S5.
.
At the far right are a
lower open cabinet with
3 shelves and then a
lower one door wooden
cabinet.  Above this
last  cabinet (that sits
right against the side
wall) are 2 shelves built
into the little alcove.

The lower cabinet on the left has been removed and a white dishwasher is now
under the counter - for E1.  In E2, part of the storyline is the new dishwasher that
Martin installs, so there is a new silver one there for the rest of the series.

On the left counter, despite the fact that there is now a dishwasher below, the
chrome dish drying rack remains.  On the end of the counter are the round bamboo
steamers and a few condiments - tabasco, soy sauce, and maybe vinegar or oil.

The chrome rack with cleaning utensils is now on the right side, on the left side is
a white pitcher holding cooking utensils, the framed stained glass is now in the
middle - leaning against the window, and some tall cruets are on either side.  A tiny
item was seen on the window crossbar all through S2, but we finally got a better
look at it in this series - it looks like maybe a metal snail?

On the middle counter is a silver espresso machine, a black & silver tall coffee
grinder, 2 silver coffee canisters, and a black electric kettle.  On the wall above is
a framed beach scene (it was in the Back Left Corner of the Living Room in S2) and
below is a sepia print that is mostly hiding behind the espresso machine.  Starting
in E4, the lower picture is taken from the wall and put on the right counter, leaning
against the wall.

On the windowsill above the stove are an assortment of bottles and other items,
including a triangular cheese grater.  On the right side sits one of the Small
Buddhas.  But, halfway through E1 it moves to the Consulting Room - and then
returns to this windowsill in E3 and remains there for the rest of the series. The
little red timer is just to the right of the stove.

The right counter holds several different items including the knife block and a tall
lamp.  This lamp is identical to one in the Consulting Room this series - but with a
different shade.  The picture that was on the wall to the left was moved here in E4
and it's part of a set of 3.  The other two moved around on the side wall and
starting in E5, one of them moved to the counter to lean against the side wall.

The change in this series is that a tall tile backsplash has been added across the
back wall.  There is also yet another new dishwasher - another white one - and a
new stove.

The chrome dish drying rack remains on the left counter, along with a short
wooden candlestick lamp with a red shade, and a marble cheese board.  At the
beginning of the series, the knife block and the white pitcher holding kitchen
utensils are there, but they move back and forth to the other end of the counter.  
Starting in E4, the knife block remains on the middle counter and the utensils
remain on the right counter.

On the windowsill above the sink, on the left are a couple of the silver coffee
canisters and a small shallow bowl.  On the right is one of the brown bowls that
contains some round items.  Starting in E4, the brown bowl disappears and there
are two glass vases with painted flowers, a short red & gold metallic looking vase,
and a pair of canning jars that I suspect hold coffee grounds and sugar.  On the
crossbar of the window is a miniature mantel clock.

On the middle counter is another new silver espresso machine, the black electric
kettle, and the knife block.  In this series, on the wall above is a large landscape
painting.  

On the windowsill above the stove are a pair of glass jars holding what looks like
pasta and grains, a couple more of the silver canisters, and what appears to be a
seltzer bottle?  The little metal piece that looks like it might be a snail has moved
from the crossbar of the left window to the crossbar of the right window.

The right counter has the white pitcher of utensils most of the time, but in an early
episode had a red cup filled with pens.  There's also a wooden tray, some glass
jars containing maybe flour or grains, a rectangular lidded woven basket, an
antique radio, and a tall lamp with a red shade.

In this series, the dishwasher has been replaced with an under counter fridge,
and there is another new stove.  The dishwasher from S4 has been moved into
the pantry.

The left counter still has the chrome dish drying rack and there are also an
assortment of cutting boards, serving trays and dishes, and a green pitcher.

On the windowsill above the sink is a cute flat wooden chicken leaning against the
window.  There are a couple of stacked grey plant pots on the left, a pair of short
green glasses (votive lights?), a silver canister holding utensils, a red painted tin
canister, a white pitcher, and a few small unidentified items.  On the crossbar of
the window is a small metal bird that was first seen in the Consulting Room in S3.

The middle counter has another new, very fancy, commercial style, black espresso
maker.  The electric kettle is nowhere to be found, but a counter paper towel
holder and a chrome toast rack are there.  On the wall is an antique photo of the
lifeboat being pulled through Fore Street in Port Isaac. This photo was in the
Living Room in S2.

On the windowsill above the stove is an egg-shaped chrome timer and the two
black & silver tumblers that were in the Consulting Room S1-S3.  In a couple of
scenes, a small black radio sat in the middle of the windowsill.  Hanging from the
lock on the window crossbar is a small red wooden heart.

On the right counter is the knife block, a red Venetian glass candle holder, a large
white baby bottle warmer, a white pitcher and cruet, a round orange tray leaning
against the side wall, and a brass stick lamp with red shade.

Several changes this series.  The tile backsplash has been removed and it looks
like the new backsplash is made from the same material as the black counter.  The
lower wooden cabinets have now been painted in a light grey color.  The fridge
under the left counter has been replaced again by yet another silver dishwasher.  
The open shelves under the right counter have always had some kind of wallpaper
on the front of the shelves, but this series it is now scalloped to match the upper
open cabinets and it appears that it may match the wallpaper in the pantry.

On the left counter is a white pitcher with flowers, two of the brown bowls, and a
warrior statue.  I think this statue was one of three that were in the Consulting
Room in S4.  The warrior also moves back and forth to the windowsill above the
sink.  In E3, the flowers disappear and the empty white pitcher remains.  In E7, the
pitcher and bowls are gone (the warrior is on the windowsill) and the antique radio
that was on the hutch this series is sitting on the counter.

On the windowsill above the sink, the two stacked grey pots are still on the left, the
warrior statue is sometimes there, the radio from the hutch is there for a couple
of episodes, there is a bottle of dishwashing liquid, a scrub brush, and two white
pitchers holding utensils - one plain white and the other with painted fruits.  We
also sometimes see a baby sippy cup and bowl, a pair of wooden salt and pepper
shakers, and some of the small apothecary jars.  On the window crossbar, a small
clamshell is there most of the series.  Sometimes it's propped against the window,
and sometimes lying down.  It matches one on the shelf above the coat rack.

The middle counter has yet another new silver espresso maker, the knife block, a
small blue teapot, and a few glass canisters.  On the wall is a small pastoral painting
with a Tramp Art frame.  This is one of a pair that was in the Living Room in S5.

On the wndowsill above the stove are a white ceramic coffee/tea pot, an egg cup, a
glass bottle with painted flowers, a small bean pot, and in E3 the little metal bird
moves there from the hutch across the room.

The items on the right counter change a lot during the series.  The little blue
teapot, wooden salt & pepper shakers, silver egg shaped timer, baby monitor, and
the large espresso maker all spend time there.  There is a new Moka Pot for
making espresso on the stovetop, a silver electric kettle, and starting in E4 a new
large silver toaster.  The woven basket from S4 is on the top shelf.

No appreciable changes in this area for Series 7.

On the left counter, there is a new silver Dualit toaster (a very expensive toaster)
and sometimes the wooden salt & pepper shakers and the toast rack are there.  
Otherwise, its kept pretty clear except for when it's being used for food prep.  
Martin added a hook on the corner to hold a kitchen towel.

The sink windowsill still has the two stacked grey pots, the warrior, and a few of
the small apothecary jars.  In addition, there is a neat row of various colors and
sizes of small glass bottles.  Also, hiding behind the bottles appears to be one or
both of the small clamshells that were here (and above the coat rack) from the
last series.  A round lock has been added to the window on the crossbar.

The espresso maker moves over to the right counter for the whole series -
probably because Martin isn't living there.  The middle counter has the two white
pitchers holding utensils that were on the windowsill last series.  We also can see
the small blue teapot, a new silver electric kettle (that moves between here and
the right counter), a glass canister, and some other unidentified items.  The small
painting on the wall is the matching one from last series.  These two small
landscapes in Tramp Art frames hung together in the Living Room in S5.

On the windowsill above the stove is the painted glass bottle from last series, the
green pitcher that was on top of the fridge in S6, the silver egg shaped timer, and
a small covered pot.

There is another new silver espresso maker and it spends the entire series on
the right counter - again, probably because Martin isn't living there.  There's also
a new silver electric kettle that sits here or on the middle counter, and a few
unidentified items.  The woven basket is still on the top shelf.

The left counter holds a large bowl with a tall arrangement of dried flowers -  
although it disappears for E7-8.  There are other small items that come and go on
the counter, including the marble cheese board.  The towel hook on the corner
remains, and two additional blue decorative hooks have been added on the wall
between the counter and the door.

On the windowsill above the sink, some returning items are the two stacked grey
pots, the warrior, the small apothecary jars, and a couple of the colored glass
bottles.  Additions are a tall clear glass bottle with a cork, a small pot, one of a pair
that had been in the Waiting Room S5-7, and a small hanging dish scrubber.  On
the window crossbar are three intriguing items - they look like they could be moth
balls or tiny eggs?

On the middle counter, the espresso maker only makes an occasional appearance -
it stays mostly on the right counter.  There is a new black knife block - and behind
it, partly on the windowsill, are the two white pitchers filled with utensils.  There
are also several new mint green items - a short and a tall canister, and a rack with
hanging utensils all with matching mint green handles.  This rack occasionally
moved across the stove to the right counter.  The painting on the wall above is
unchanged from the previous series.

The items on the windowsill above the stove are mostly unchanged from the
previous series - the green pitcher, the painted glass bottle, the small covered
pot.  There is also a small brown glass bottle, and in a couple of scenes, the
matching small pot that we see in the other window - in one shot you can see both
of them.

On the right counter is the espresso maker (most of the series), a new small black
toaster, a new silver electric kettle, and the woven basket still on the top shelf.

Back Right Corner
.
The Back Right Corner of the Kitchen is the area between the hall door and the
counter that stretches across the back of the room.  There are pictures hanging
on this wall in some series and the wall is sometimes blank.  Because the hall
door is usually open, it sometimes blocks the view of pictures hanging behind.

In this series, the drawing of what looks like a teacup, but with a clown face (?)
hangs above the electrical outlet.  Starting in E6, the small painting appears below
the cup picture.

In this series, there are 3 paintings that seem to be part of a set in the corner.  In

right side of the wall - you can see here that it matches the lower one on the back
wall.  In E4, a new one is hanging just above the electrical outlet.  Martin is
blocking the view, but the one that had been hanging on the back wall is now on
the counter leaning against the wall.  In E5, the one that was hanging right above
the electrical outlet is now on the counter leaning against the wall.  The one still
on the wall is just visible behind the door.

This is the area between the hallway door and the small bump out that separates

the wall and the top half sometimes has a piece of artwork and is sometimes left
blank.

In Series 2 there was no artwork on the wall.  In some scenes, the chrome and
canvas chair sat in front of the radiator - this was either the one that was often on
the opposite wall (next to the pantry door) or there are a pair of them.

Table Area
.
The kitchen table and chairs sit in the middle of the room.  There have been 2
different kitchen tables - the first one was natural wood with 2 drawers on one
side and the second one is painted light grey and has one drawer.

The chairs have been a hodgepodge of different styles every year.  There are
often 2 or 3 different chair styles around the table.  Quite often there was one
chair sitting against the wall next to the hutch, and it was often brought over and
used at the table.

James Henry has had 2 different high chairs.

The 3 traditional style chairs remain, joined by 2 new ones with a turned spindle

3 of the traditional chairs plus one of the spindle chairs were there.  Also, each of
these chairs were spotted against the wall next to the hutch at different times and
we saw one new chair there that had a solid wooden top of the back with some
spindles beneath, but only a small part of the chair was seen.

Once again, the same wooden table.

The 2 turned spindle backed chairs that we first saw last series have been joined
by 2 more, and most of this series there is a matched set around the table.  But, in
one scene there is a new curved back chair at the table - that chair can also be
seen to the right of the hutch.  In other shots of that space next to the hutch, we
saw one of the traditional style chairs that has been here in every series so far.

We have a new table this series.  It is similar to the previous one, but is painted
in a light grey color.  It also has a single small drawer on one side.

After the 4 matched chairs of last series, we have returned to a mishmash of chairs
around the table.  There are 2 new ones with a curved piece of wood down the
back.  There is also a new chair with a curved back, one of the traditional chairs
that we have seen every series, another new one with a curved back with
spindles - was only spotted in E8.  Another new chair spotted one time is a darker
mahogany one with a crackled finish.  Both the new curved back chair without the
spindles and the new mahogany chair were spotted to the left of the hutch.

For the first time, we have a high chair for James Henry - its in a dark wood with a
colorful pad featuring apples and pears.

The painted table is still here.  In this series we see the only time the table has
ever had a tablecloth - E8 when Louisa has prepared the dinner for Martin.  But he
never shows up because he has been kidnapped.

One of the traditional chairs remains, and a new, single chair has appeared - it's
taller than many of the others and has a classical looking back.  The other new
chairs are a set of 3 that have curved backs with spindles that are angled toward
the center of the seat.  The mahogany chair with the crackled finish sits over next
to the hutch in this series.

James Henry still has the dark wood high chair with the apples and pears on
the pad.

The same table is here this series, but turned around so the drawer faces the back
counter.  The side facing out has several spots at the top of the legs where the
paint has chipped off.

This is the only series so far where there are a matched set of chairs for the entire
series.  The other thing that is different is that the chairs are all more of a blond
wood color - most of the chairs in the previous series have been a darker wood.  
There is also a new, delicate looking chair sitting next to the hutch.

James Henry has a new high chair this series.  It is a blond wood that matches the
chairs.  There are at least 2 different pads used this series.  The first one seems to
be a pastel color, and the second one is reversible with red and white stripes on
one side and black and white stripes on the other.

Patio
.
The outdoor space behind the kitchen is a small patio just outside the back door.  
Just to the left of the door is a tall compost bin in S3-S4.  Starting in S5, in its
place there appears to be a short metal cistern - possibly for collecting rainwater
for the plants.  There are also some metal trash bins visible in S8.

Starting in S3 there is a tall green wooden potting bench/hutch against the back
wall.  A very similar new one appears in S4 and is still there through S8.

Through the windows we can see the stone wall that probably acts as a retaining
wall against the hill behind the cottage.

There really is not much view of the patio in this series.  Just these shots when
Louisa comes in and then out of the door.  You can spot a little of the stone
retaining wall at the left.
