On the Edge
Martin comes in for antiseptic wipes, which
haven't arrived yet.  She tries to lure him
upstairs with the latest issue of the MHRA with
a fascinating article on elephantiasis, a cup of
tea, and biscuits (she suspects he is a
hobnob sort of man).  He then asks for a tube
of tolnaftate cream on his personal account.  
She pushes and asks if it is for athletes foot
or the dhobi's itch?  Through gritted teeth he
says, "Just the feet", spots Louisa walking by
and says, "I'm sure I'll survive" and hurries out
the door and down the street after her.
Gavin comes into the chemist to ask Mrs
Tishell about Dr Ellingham.  She gushes
about what a warm, caring, charming man
he is.  That they are truly blessed to have
such a giant of a man in their small village.  
That he has healing hands, big hands, big

Blood is Thicker
Martin comes into the chemist to pick up
syringes (she ordered 10mm and they sent
1mm, so he doesn't want those) and he asks
if she has had a lot of requests for diarrhea
remedies.  They are interrupted by Sandra
Mylow, the new herbalist in town.
Mrs Tishell
Cats and Sharks
She is in front of the chemist and sees Martin
walking nearby.  She runs after him and tells
him that he made the right decision about
Louisa Glasson - and that they were never
meant to be.  Martin ignores the personal
comments and asks what's wrong with her
face.  She says it might be her new lipstick or
maybe he noticed her hair.  He says, "No."
and walks away as she says, "Oh Doctor
Ellingham.  Always teasing me.  See you
Martin stops in the chemist to pick up pessary
rings.  She suggests that maybe they could
meet tonight to have a chat about everything.  
When he ignores the invitation she suggests
that she is free tomorrow night.  He just tries
to get out as quickly as he can and tells her to
put the pessary rings on his account.
It's early evening and she is sitting at her
dressing table putting on makeup.  Her hair is
all curled and she is wearing a pink satin robe
and a black neck brace.  There is a picture of
Martin in an elaborate frame on the dressing
Sh*t Happens
Martin meets Mrs Tishell for the very first time
and is very cordial to her. When she tells him
that she has been waiting to meet him, and
that it's common practice for the new GP to
pay a visit on the local pharmacist, he
apologises to her.  He even admits that it was
unprofessional of him.  The conversation
starts out on a good foot, but it soon becomes
apparent to Martin that she is looking for a
friend who is up for long chats to discuss the
latest medical advancements over tea and
biscuits (she apparently did with the late,
great Dr Sim).  Martin tries, several times, to
let her know that he does not intend to have
this type of relationship with her, but she
continues trying.  He finally needs to get firm
with her to get the information that he came
for - the list of villagers with stomach problems.
Driving Mr McLynn
Martin walks into the chemist to find Mrs
Tishell on the floor picking up the items that
were just knocked over by Mr McLynn in his
wheelchair.  She apologises and said if she
knew he was coming that she would have
made herself presentable.  Martin quizzes her
about Mr McLynn's condition and she is able
to provide him with some valuable information.
Martin goes to see Mrs Tishell about
Caroline's attempt to get another dosage of
fluconazole.  At first, Mrs Tishell thinks that he
is upset with her for her refusal, but he tells
her that she was correct in refusing to give
Caroline the medication.  Mrs Tishell is
relieved that she did the right thing and is
emboldened to ask him to sit down with her to
review the latest journals.  She offers him tea
and pasties.  He tells her he has surgery and
takes his leave.  As he walks out the door,
she quietly says, "Homemade."
Better the Devil
Martin stops in to pick up supplies and Mrs
Tishell immediately unbuttons the top button
of her jacket.  She tries to engage him in
conversation about people who eat paper,
dirt, etc and then agrees with him when he
calls it half-baked sensationalism.  Clive walks
down the stairs and is reluctantly introduced
to Martin.
She has brought Clive to the surgery for his
bleeding ear.  After Martin finds that he will be
able to cure Clive's hearing loss so he can go
back on the boats, as Mrs Tishell is leaving,
she tells Martin (seductively, as only she can)
that Clive will soon be gone, far away, and
that she will be all on her own again.
The Departed
Martin stops in for some medication and
Mrs T tries to engage him in conversation
about her observations of Mrs Selkirk's
bizarre behaviour (although she actually gives
him some important information).  As he
leaves, she says, "Come back soon.  I'm
always here for you."
Happily Ever After
Mrs Tishell is practicing the organ when
Martin walks into the church to talk to the
vicar.  Martin says he didn't know she played
and she gets all dreamy and says that there
is a lot they don't know about each other
"ships passing in the night".  Then Martin
asks to see the vicar and she gets excited
thinking that he is cancelling the wedding.  
She says, "What?  you're not having doubts,
are you?  Not having second thoughts?  
Cause a bachelor life can be quite nice."
Mrs Tishell knocks on Louisa's door to check
that everything is okay.  She tells Louisa she
thought the wedding might be postponed.  
Louisa is confused and asks what she means,
Mrs Tishell says, "The vicar.  Oh... Dr
Ellingham didn't tell you."
When Louisa calls Martin to ask what
happened to the vicar, Mrs Tishell is listening
from around the corner.  Louisa drops her
voice to a whisper when she asks Martin if he
might be subconsciously sabotaging the
wedding and she looks over trying to make
sure that Mrs T cannot hear her.
While Louisa is having her hair fixed, Mrs
Tishell, Pauline and Roger are on the balcony
discussing what life will be like for the married
couple.  Mrs T waxes poetically about Martin
regaling dinner party guests with tales from
medical school.  When children are brought
up, she says that he would make a wonderful
