The living room in the surgery was not used all that much when Martin was single.  It had a
very expensive looking leather sofa along with his antiques.  Often, we only got glimpses
from the kitchen to see the furnishings.

Starting in Series 6 we see the room as much more of a family room.  
.

Living Room


In these first two pictures
from Series 6, you can see
both sides of the living
room.

In the back left is the
northwest corner of the
room.  In the foreground left
is the southwest corner of
the room.  

There is sometimes a
piece of furniture in the
alcove in front of the
window, but often it is left
empty.  

To the right of the window
there is usually a piece of
furniture - in this series an
upholstered chair and a
side table.  To the right of
the chair is a set of french
doors leading to the side of
the house.  These doors
were only used in Series 1.

On the wall at the right
(east wall) is the fireplace
and in the right foreground
corner (not in the shot) is
the southeast corner of the
room.  We have only seen
this corner a handful of
times.  There is a small
television in that corner.  
Only twice have we seen
anyone watching television
(Martin's father and Peter
Cronk - both in S2).  

In the picture showing
Pauline climbing onto the
kitchen table you can get
another view of the living
room from the kitchen.  At
the back you can see the
door leading to the
entryway and the front door
of the surgery.

This last picture shows a
view from the front of the
living room back toward the
kitchen. This shot shows
the television in the
southeast corner of the
room.
.
.
Here is the layout of the
living room.  The window at
the bottom is at the front of
the house and looks out
over the harbour.

At the lower right is the
doorway that leads to the
entryway and the front door
of the surgery.

At the top is the opening to
the kitchen.  There are two
steps up from the living
room to the kitchen.
.
.
Southeast Corner
Series 1

The few times we saw the
living room in S1, the
actual living room from Fern
Cottage was used.  I have
included a picture of this
room from Fern Cottage
and you can see from the
two screenshots that the
filming took place in that
room.  There was no
opening from the living
room to the kitchen in S1.  

For the filming of S2 a set  
for the living room and the
kitchen was built at the
studio on the farm just
outside of Port Isaac and
the two rooms then had an
open concept.
.
.
Southeast Corner
Series 2

There are pictures hanging
on both walls in the corner
and there is a television set
sitting on a wooden table in
the corner.
.
.
Southeast Corner
Series 5

We didn't see this corner
again until S5.  The
television is still there
sitting on a wooden table
and there is now a wooden
cabinet hanging in the
corner.

On the right wall is a large
round medallion of some
type.
.
.
Southeast Corner
Series 6

We get one glimpse this
series and it looks like
there is still a television on
the table (a black one?).  It
appears to be a new table.  

There was a much different
(more homey) style in the
house in S6 - probably
down to Louisa's
influence.   
.
.
Fireplace
Series 1

Here are a couple of views
that we had of the fireplace
in S1.  

I also added the picture of
the living room from Fern
Cottage to show that they
did film those scenes in the
cottage in S1
.
.
Fireplace
Series 2

When they built the living
room set in the barn for
S2 they put the fireplace
in the correct spot but
they didn't try to
duplicate it.

The stone surrounding
the box is a good match
to the stone on the
fireplace in Fern
Cottage, but they added
a very nice mantle and
surround.  Perhaps the
thought was that the doc
added that after he
decided to stay in
Portwenn?
.
.
Fireplace
Series 3

A slightly blurry view of
the fireplace as Martin
walks through in the
evening and then a
couple of good peeks of
it through the entryway.

A different clock at the
center of the mantle and
what appears to be a
different framed picture
on the wall above.
The same round lamp is
on the right side of the
mantle.

What appears to be
some type of tribal art is
at the left.
.
.
Fireplace
Series 4

Some random shots
during the series.  

Some type of pot at the
far left side, the round
lamp has been moved to
the left side, a new
(smaller) piece of art on
the wall and another new
clock.
.
.
Fireplace
Series 5

We assume that the
decor in S5 belongs to
Diana & Gavin Dibbs,
and it does have a
different feel.

The tribal piece is back
in place (I'm thinking
Martin added that back
in when they moved back
to the surgery), but the
picture, wooden fish
sculpture and delicate
lamp are all a big change
from what had been
there before.
.
.
Fireplace
Series 6

These are the only views
we have of the fireplace
in S6, but the tribal
sculpture is still there
and one of Martin's
clocks is back in place.
.
.
.

Northeast Corner
Series 1

A couple of shots from
the series that were
filmed in Fern Cottage

The top two pictures
were in the first episode
when Martin was
unpacking.  The bottom
picture is him sitting at a
small desk in front of the
window.  Melanie is
about to surprise him
when she shows up at
the french doors with
"her" dog, Mary.
.
.
Northeast Corner
Series 2

The only thing we ever
see in that area of the
living room in S2 is this
quick shot of some type
of wooden bench.

That's the only time that
bench is seen anywhere
in the surgery.
.
.
Northeast Corner
Series 3

The round lamp that was
in the SW corner has
been moved here this
series.

The position of the lamp
and the picture change
at one point during the
series.

A wooden corner cabinet
has been added.
.
.
Northeast Corner
Series 4

Not many looks in that
direction in this series.  It
may be the same table
over there with a
different lamp and new
wall art.  It also looks like
a chair has been pulled
up to the table to use it
as a desk.
.
.
Northeast Corner
Series 5

Again, not many good
views over there, but one
time we saw a floor lamp
that looks very Diana
Dibbs-ish.

And if that is the same
table (although it looks
like it might be a
drop-leaf), it has a new
lamp and new artwork
above.
.
.
Northeast Corner
Series 6

Ahh - the "Louisa Effect"!

In S6 the living room
looks very cozy and
really says that a family
is living in this house.

Nice comfortable chair
with a side table.  A small
table, used as a desk, in
the front window.  And
flowers! And, if you look
closely, Louisa has
added wallpaper to the
front wall!

The picture on the wall
was in the NW corner in
S5.
.
.
Northwest Corner
Series 1 & 2

The picture on the left is
on moving day, so not
sure what is there, but
one of his clocks is
visible.

The picture on the right
is from S2.  Some type of
Asian cabinet is in the
corner with a picture
propped on top.  (I think
that picture moves to the
kitchen at some point)
.
.
Northwest Corner
Series 3

You can see a better
view of the cabinet.  

Now we have a sailing
ship and a clock on top -
but they do change
position.

Northwest Corner
Series 4

We still have the same
cabinet in the corner but
with new items on top.

We have one of the
round lamps (that was on
the table in the northeast
corner in S3), a basket,
and the White Buddha!  
There is also a picture
hidden behind the
objects.
.
.
Northwest Corner
Series 5

The Asian cabinet has
been replaced by a
carved wooden cabinet.  
If this looks familiar, it
was the cabinet that was
in residence in the back
corner (SW corner) of
the consulting room
starting in the Christmas
Special after S2 and
remained there for S3 &
S4. It's also the cabinet
that the movers banged
into the door frame while
moving it out. Martin
must have had it shipped
back from London.

Some new items on top
of the cabinet also..
.
.
Northwest Corner
Series 6

We started out with a
small dark cabinet in
this corner, but
partway through the
series it was swapped
out for a lighter
colored wood cabinet.

The new cabinet also
came with a different
lamp.

You can really see
Louisa's new
wallpaper in these
pictures.  It looked to
only be on the front
wall of the room.
.
.
Southwest Corner
Series 2

This corner of the
room is right next to
the kitchen and
appears in many shots.

This tall wooden
cabinet was in place
for S2.  He has a pair
of the round lamps -
the other one was on
the mantle in S2.

The Gold Buddha
makes the only
appearance outside of
the consulting room in
S2.  
.
.
Southwest Corner
Series 5

Once again, Diana
Dibbs had a far
different style than
Martin.  I suspect that
Martin added one of
his clocks to this
cabinet, but the lamp
just wouldn't be his.

The picture frames
above are also very
different.  I think one
of them lands in the
kitchen in S6.
.
.
Southwest Corner
Series 3 & 4

A drop-leaf table was
in place for these two
series.  On the left
was a tall lamp in S3,
and a shorter lamp
with an antique radio
sat on the table in S4.

They also swapped
out the pictures on
the wall for S3 and
then again for S4.
.
.
Southwest Corner
Series 6

This secretary looks
much more like
Martin's style.  I think
we can also see
Louisa's influence in
the lamp and the
painting.

And starting in S5 we
see a lot of stuffed
animals and toys all
over the surgery.
.
.
Sofa
Series 2, 3, 4

As a bachelor, Martin
had just the type of
sofa you might
expect.  Expensive
looking, leather and
not at all the cushy
type of leather.
.
.
Sofa
Series 5

Diana and Gavin
brought a floral sofa.  
Not Martin's style, but
he put it to good use
to read to James in
the evening.
.
.
Sofa
Series 6

Martin & Louisa now
have a sofa that really
suits a family.  Dark
enough that it can be
a bit kid-proof and
comfy looking for a
night in with the family.
