Literary Reference - This is a common slang phrase that generally means that life is full of imperfections and
unpredictable events.
Connecting the Episode Title to the Storylines
The main story, of course, is another take on the title.  Many of the residents of the village are down with severe
stomach and bowel issues and Martin goes through a couple of possible causes (leisure center pool, village's
water supply) before discovering that it is actually Bert's bottled spring water that has caused the problem.
Bert's plans for Al to work alongside him as a plumber (and maybe even inventing a new stopcock!) are not
working out the way he hoped.  Al wants a career in computers and Bert is finally realizing his hopes are in vain.
Bert's plans to provide a nest egg for Al's future are dashed when Martin tells him that he has to stop bottling his
spring water because it is the cause of the illness sweeping the village.
Mrs Tishell's plan for her first meeting with the new GP includes a cake, tea and a long chat about current medical
news.  But Martin is all business when he finally visits the chemists and not interested in anything she proposes.
Martin plans to redeem himself in the eyes of the village by giving the local reporter an interview assuring him that
the water supply is safe.  This plan is completely turned upside down when he demonstrates the safety of the tap
water by taking a drink of it and immediately becomes ill.
The Water Treatment Plant Official thinks that he will be receiving a nice donation to the Christmas Fund after
Martin requests testing of the water supply.  He has a rude awakening when he delivers the results of the test and
Martin refuses to pay what he sees as extortion.
Roger Fenn's plan to apply for his pension looks to be unsuccessful because it seems that there is no way to
prove that his health problems had already begun when he lost his job.  In the end, it looks like he has resigned
himself to going back to work.
Martin's date with Louisa is hijacked by Mark Mylow who grabs him to talk about his emotional health.

And our guest today on Porrtwenn Personality Playlist is, of course, our very own new GP, Doc Martin.
Dr Ellingham.
What?  Oh, right.
Dr Ellingham, or Martin.
So, Doc.  You gave up your life in London and a career as a top surgeon…
A vascular specialist.
...to be our GP here in sleepy old Portwenn.
Yes.
Just a little bit more.
Yes, Caroline.
What made you decide to do that?
Ummm.  I wanted to move.
What were your first impressions of our village?
It's windy.

Did you hear him on the radio?
No, not really.  Just caught a bit of it down at the front.
Very cagey about his love life.
Really?
Very cagey about everything, really. What did you see in him at interview?
Don't blame me.  Only one of my eyes was working.
Oh, I thought you quite liked him.
He's fine.
What are you after?

So Ricky, what's the problem?
His bottom.  It’s the runs.

I don't know why boys are funny about their bottoms, do you?
Diarrhea?  How long for?
Two days.
You taking plenty of fluids?  Any fever or sickness?
No, it's just his bottom.
Right.  Well, it might be something you ate or it could be a viral infection.
Could it be that he holds it in too long?
No.

Aren't you gonna check his bottom?  Show him your bottom.

You see Elaine, my thinking was that if you've got a greater understanding of these things, then you might start to enjoy
your computer.  And who knows?  You might even start to use it correctly.
Yeah.  Ohh - I really gotta go.
Nearly there. You see the network wasn't recognizing the new memory I put in, so by changing these little jumper
switches here, we make the network happy.  Check for stray swabs and stitch her up.  We're done.  Didn't take too long
either.  It's not even eight yet.
Great.  Still got time to kill myself.

Hi.
Oh, God.  Oh, God.  Sorry.
It's okay.  I've got lots of Prada.  Designer clothes.
Oh.
Of course, this isn’t Prada.  It was a joke.
I see.
I thought I ought to apologise about that time with Roger Fenn.  I felt he needed looking after.  And, and I suppose I felt
guilty about his...about the whole retirement thing.
You were angry with yourself, so you took it out on me?
Well, excuse me.
No, I thought that was what you were saying.
Well, yes.  I suppose it was.
So it's not my fault?
No.
Oh, good.
Yeah.
Right.
Well, I've uh, just come from the pub.
I was cleaning the car.
The pub does great food.  And drinks.
Not a big beer drinker.
Got a good selection of wines and whiskeys.
Really?
Yeah.  Well, maybe we'll bump into each other there one day.  See you.
I've got an idea.  Why don't we go out for a drink one night?
Okay.
Wednesday at 7:30?
Did you know I wanted you to ask?
Yes, I did.
Hmmm.

It was the happiest day of my life you know, when I got "and son."  How can you fix a broken heart, eh?
A lot of beer's a good start.
Really?
No.
Oh.  He's moved out, hasn't he?
You know, when I told my father that I wasn't going to follow him into the Navy, we didn't speak for three months.
Yeah, but now you're older you can understand his point, can't you? I mean, that was what I was trying to say to Al.
No, we still don't speak, actually.
So now you're taking Al's side?
Well, I'm not taking anyone's side.
Oh, so I was right in the first place.  You know what?  You can shove it.

Elaine,  it is not your job to give medical advice over the telephone.
It was bellyache.  That's not medical advice, it's common sense.
Can I please decide who comes to my surgery?
No.
No?
If they have bellyache or diarrhea then I have them wait.  If they've got something serious I get em in straightaway.
Thank you, I'm familiar with triage.
Right, yeah.  So I want an apology.  If it weren't for me, you'd have had a dozen diarrheas since yesterday.
How many?

Doctor Ellingham.  I knew you'd come.
Mrs Tishell.
I've been waiting for you.
Good to hear.  Why?
Well, It's customary for a new GP to pay a courtesy call to his pharmacist.
I'm sorry.  I should have come sooner.
I bought a cake.  It's a bit stale now though.
I'm sorry.  That was unprofessional of me.
No, I'm sorry I assumed.  Would you like a cup of tea?
No time.  I need some information.
Sorry.  Down to business, of course.
Have you noticed an increased demand for diarrhea remedies lately?
Yes.  In fact, you could say there's been a run on them.  Sorry.  Over the last several days there's been perhaps 20 or
30 people.
Yeah, I thought so.
Oh, I should have informed you.  I'm sorry.  I should have been more alert.  I am sorry.
Mrs Tishell, it really isn't necessary for you to apologise quite so often as you do.
I'm s......
Do you remember any names?
Yes.  Mostly locals.
Would you give me a list?
I could.
Now?
Judging by your recent prescriptions, you seem to be aware of reports of adrenal crisis in inhaled corticosteroids?
Well, there have been cases of adrenal suppression with excessive doses of fluticasone.
I notice you've taken care to ensure dosages below 400...
Yes, I try to remain current.  I find I kill fewer patients that way.  If you could get the list please?
Oh, it's SO nice to talk to a doctor again.  Dr Sim and I could chat for hours.
Hmm.  Mrs Tishell.
When the quarterly MRHA bulletin comes out, perhaps we could get together over a cup of tea to discuss it?
Just the list for now, please.
I could make sandwiches.  Do you eat tongue?
Mrs Tishell, please.  Stop talking and write me a list of all the people in this village with diarrhea.
Yes.  Sorry.

Who do you think you are, coming in here and telling me how to run my pool?
I think I'm a doctor with dozens of sick patients.
Okay, well you've said your piece.  Now I'm asking you nicely to leave.
Right, attention everyone.  Listen up.  Excuse me.  Children.  I've something really important to tell you.  Shut up and
listen!  My name is Dr Ellingham.  I'd like everyone to swim to the side and get out of the pool immediately.
No way!
Yeah, you smell!
Sod off!
Smellingham, smellingham.
Doctor, Doctor Smellingham!
Yes, that's hilariously funny, but this is actually quite serious.  I'm telling you, thre is something dangerous in the water.  
Now please.  Calmly swim to the edges and climb out of the pool.
(Screaming)  There it is!  (Screaming)
That got em out.

When you're feeling better, why don't you come and see me?  We can talk about treatments available for your acne.
What acne?
Aunt Joan

Look Marty.  You do realize that the villagers are dusting off their pitchforks, don't you?
Yes.  Exactly how many generations ago did the inbreeding start with these people?

Aunt Joan
If I don't warn people, then the pitchfork brigade will crucify me for that, won't they?
Probably.
And when I'm proven right and that water's tested, do you see any of them coming up here and begging to eat a piece
of humble pie?  I don't think so.
Martin.  Tell me you had that water tested BEFORE you went on the radio.  Oh, Martin!

Daphne du Maurier said our water was worth a pound a pint.
I'm sure she did.
Well. I never touch it myself.  That sludge has got all sorts in it.
What?
Mind if I come in?  Thank you.  That water eats through pipes.  Imagine what it would do to your innards.  
Bert

This is what you need.  Fine French spring water.
Oh Bert.  I appreciate that this is an opportunity for you.

Now, when you run out, just give us a call.  Free delivery…for you.

This is a water treatment plant, yes?
The finest in northwest Cornwall.
And it's safe to assume that you can actually do the test here?
Well, I suppose so.
Then it's also safe to assume that you are a self-important, obstructive moron.  There are people in Portwenn throwing
up as we speak.
If that's everything, I have important matters to obstruct.

Thanks for coming at short notice, um, Mr Johnson.  This way.
Ed.  I should thank you.  Sales of the Echo are very healthy, even if the people of Portwenn are not.  Newborn lambs
don't shift newspapers in quite the same way.
I want to set the record straight about the water.  Have a seat please.
Dish.
This has been a huge misunderstanding.  I don't know for certain that there's anything wrong with the tap water at all.
Well, hang on a minute.  If the water's okay, how come you're drinking mineral water?
I like it.  I often drink it.  But I also, uh, drink the tap water.  It's good.  It's safe.  It's lovely.  So, for the time being, the tap
water is safe, and I'd be grateful if you'd quo...quote me on that.
What's with the U-turn?  You announced on the radio that the water was contaminated.
Um, not in possession of all the facts.  Still having tests done and that takes time.
So now you're saying what?  The tap water's fine?
Absolutely.  Our good Cornish water is still worth a pound a pint.
What?
Daphne du Maurier.  Excuse me.
You all right?
Mm-mmm.  I'm fine.
You're not, are you?  You've got the lurgy, ain't you?  So, there IS something wrong with the water?
Urghhhh
Can I quote you on that?

No contamination at all.

Uh, Christmas fund?

This is all for Al.  I always knew he was gonna fly the nest, but… That's why I started this up.  To have something on the
side, make a little nest egg for him.
I thought you didn’t want him to go.
I don't, I don't.  The morning Al was born I had this vision, right?  Him and me.  Plumbers together.  That we would be
something special.  You know?  Invent a new stopcock or something.  I don't want him to go.  But when the time comes,
I'll have to provide for him.  Ungrateful little tyke.

Your father has something he wants to tell you.
You must be freezing out here.  Would you like me to bring you a spare heater?
Oh, for God's sake.  Your father wants to apologise for  being a mindless control freak, and he's fine about you going to
college and studying computers.
He didn't say that.  Not him.
He said it to me, and he meant it.
If he means it, he should say it.
All right.
To me.
I've been thinking.  If you want to do this com-poo-ter stuff, it's all right by me.
Yeah?
Yeah.

Al, as you're good with computers, you wouldn't mind having a look at the two in the surgery would you?  It's a problem

You must be feeling a little red-faced.
Hardly.  I made…
Well, you were wrong.
With the benefit of hindsight, yes.  But I stand by my decision.  I...
People might say foolish even.
Look...
And  have you at least identified the source of the infection?
No I haven't.
People might say you almost put this village out of business for nothing.
Yes, they might.
Well, I'm sure we'll all come to our own conclusions as to how well this has been handled.  Thanks Doc.

It was fine last night.

No.  They were all awful.
So, what's the story with the water then?
Oh, it's over.
Oh, come on.  You can tell me.  I know you were holding back.  The way you let Caroline lay into you like that.
I made a mistake and I admitted it.
You carry on like this and it might even be safe for me to admit I was on your interview panel.
Oh - I wouldn't break cover just yet if I was you.

Okay.
Cause I'm still, you know, the old depression thing.
Yes, well, any time.  But not, not, not…
Thanks.  I think I know what it is.  It's a girlfriend thing.  I used to think I was a basically unhappy person.  But now I think
I'm a basically happy person who just doesn't have a girlfriend.  Oh, Louisa.  Actually, we couldn't just have a little
minute, could we?  Bit delicate.
Umm...
Thanks.  I mean, I do have girlfriends regularly, of course.  Well, not regularly, but it's not like once in a blue...  Well, it
IS once in a blue moon to be honest.  But I had this one once and she said I was too gentle.  I didn't know what to do
with that.  Have you ever had that?  Too gentle?
No.
MARTIN & LOUISA
Louisa and Roger Fenn are at the Fish Cellars listening to Martin being interviewed on the radio.  Louisa laughs and smiles at Martin being
"himself" over the air.
This scene also only involves Louisa.  She is talking to her coworker, Jean, and they are discussing Martin's appearance that day on Radio
Portwenn.  Louisa starts looking for something on the table and Jean asks what she is looking for.  Louisa says, "My Martin...marking.  My
marking."  This is the first time we see that he is on her mind.
Martin is out washing his car when Louisa comes walking by.  She stops and apologises for the misunderstanding over his treatment of
Roger Fenn.  The conversation is a little stilted, but Louisa starts talking about the food and drink at the local pub.  It's obvious that she is
trying to get him interested in meeting her there, but it takes him a little while to catch on.  She says that maybe they will run into each other
there one day and starts to leave.  Just then, the penny drops for Martin and he says, "I've got an idea."  He immediately sets a date for them
to meet and Louisa continues walking up the hill with a skip in her step.
Martin meets Louisa on the Platt and they start walking into the pub.  He is in a very good mood because he has finally gotten the illness that
was running rampant through the village under control.  He has also publicly exonerated the village's water supply, covered up for Bert, and
saw that Roger seems to be happily back to work.  But he tells Louisa that his visits to Radio Portwenn were all painful.  She says that if he
continues to carry on, that she might be able to admit she was on his interview panel.  He jokingly tells her that she might not want to break
cover just yet.  Things are looking up for this first date.  Louisa goes to get their drinks while he goes out to the balcony to find them a seat.  
But Mark Mylow is standing alone on the balcony and is glad to see Martin.  He wants to talk to Martin about his depression.  Martin tries to
tell him that he would be glad to talk, but not now, but Mark doesn't let him get a word in edgewise.  When Louisa walks out with the drinks,
Mark asks her if they can have some privacy because they are discussing a delicate matter.  Louisa is surprised, but smiles at Martin and
walks back into the pub.  She watches them for a minute, smiles at Martin again, shrugs her shoulders and walks out of sight to another area
of the pub.  It looks like Martin is in for a long session listening to Mark's problems.

Original Broadcast:  Sep 16, 2004

This is the episode where we first meet the village chemist, Sally Tishell.  This was her only appearance in Series 1, but she became more of a
regular starting in Series 2.  As time goes on, she continually tries to lure Martin into tea, biscuits and a chat.  Someone online recently pointed
out that Martin might take note of the spelling of her last name: "Tis hell".

ACTION MARTIN - Martin climbs a ladder at the Leisure Centre to clear the pool because he thinks the water is contaminated.

FOOD - When Aunt Joan visits Martin to talk about the water scare, he is filleting a fish.

INTERRUPTIONS - Martin and Louisa have arrived at the pub to attempt their first date.  Louisa goes to fetch the drinks while Martin goes out
to the balcony to find a table.  Mark Mylow is on the balcony and tells Martin that he needs to talk to him.  While Martin is very gracious, he tries
to tell Mark that it isn't a good time, but it goes right over Mark's head.  As Louisa comes out with the drinks, Mark asks for a bit of privacy for
his chat with Martin and it looks like Martin will be stuck there for the evening.

LOOK BACK - On their first attempt at a date, Martin is waylaid by Mark and watches as Louisa goes back into the pub after handing him his
requested glass of water.

MRS TISHELL - 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 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.

NICE MARTIN - 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 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.

NICE MARTIN - We see Martin trying to teach Elaine how the computer network works, but when Martin discovers that Al is trying to develop a
career working on computers, he plays dumb about networks and asks Al to take a look at it.  Al checks out the computer and says that the
network is all messed up, but it seems obvious that Martin has fiddled with it to make it look like he needs Al's help.  He then hires Al to keep
the computers in the surgery maintained.

NICE MARTIN - After Bert agrees to stop selling the contaminated bottled water, Martin covers for him - both with Caroline on the radio and
with Louisa as they walk into the pub.

NICE MARTIN - Mark interrupts Martin and Louisa's first date at the pub and he is dismayed but listens to Mark's troubles as Louisa walks
away.

PATIENT NAMES - Emily Braithwaite.  Emily is Martin Clunes' daughter's name and Braithwaite is the maiden name and professional name of
Martin's wife (Philippa Braithwaite).  Emily's mother stops the doc in the street to see if he will see her daughter.

RADIOS - The fishermen on the Platt are listening to Martin on Radio Portwenn.

RADIOS - There is also a radio at the Fish Cellars and Louisa and Roger listen to the same interview.

RADIOS - When Martin has to use the bathroom at Radio Portwenn, he finds Bert and Al in there working and also listening on a radio.

RADIOS - There is a radio on the windowsill behind Elaine's desk in the waiting room.

RADIOS - There is a radio on the windowsill in the kitchen when Martin is pouring himself a glass of water.

RADIOS - When Martin goes to the Water Treatment Plant, there is a radio on the desk of the official he sees.

RADIOS - Louisa walks into music club carrying a radio - that also has a cassette player or CD player?

RUDE MARTIN - When Martin has publicly said that the town's water supply is probably contaminated, Aunt Joan visits and tells him that the
villagers are preparing their pitchforks.  Martin asks her how many generations ago they started their inbreeding?  In fact, he exhibits rude
behaviour in this whole situation, first accusing the pool at the leisure center and then the town's water supply with absolutely no proof.

STORYLINES
Elaine has been fending off patients with bellyache and diarrhea, but when Martin realizes how many there have been, he suspects a
problem.  He is first convinced that its from the pool at the leisure centre, then decides it's Portwenn's drinking water (which puts him in hot
water with the villagers), but eventually discovers it is Bert's bottled water from his field during lambing season.
Al wants to get away from plumbing and start his own career in computers, but Bert doesn't want to let him go.  Martin convinces him to relent
and hires him to maintain the computers in the surgery.
Martin meets Mrs Tishell for the first time.  He starts by treating her professionally, but by the end of the first visit he realizes that she is a bit
of a scatterbrain.
Louisa proposes a music program to provide Roger with a job.  He declines at first because he is trying to get his pension, but relents
because it seems he loves it too much.
Martin invites Louisa to have a drink in the pub.  They walk into the pub in an amiable mood, but Martin is waylaid by Mark who needs advice
and that seems to end the "date".

Near the beginning of the episode, we see Louisa on a bicycle riding down Fore Street and coming up
along the side of The Mote and toward the Platt.  She continues past the Platt and leaves her bicycle at
the entrance to the Fish Cellars.  As she steps into the entrance to the Fish Cellars, she sees Roger and
they have a discussion about his finances while they're making their seafood choices.  They are also
hearing a live radio broadcast where Martin is being introduced to the village on Radio Portwenn.
.
.
.
.
.
Louisa is walking up Roscarrock Hill and stops to talk to Martin as he is washing his
car.  The two parking spaces that belong to the surgery in the show actually belong
to The White House which is located next to the cottage used as the surgery.

You can see a car parked in that spot in the picture below which was taken
from across the harbour.
.
.
.
.
.
Martin walks up the Platt
and Bert talks him into
sitting on the bench for
a chat.

This is right by the windows
of the holiday let called
"Tides Reach".
.
.
.
As Martin leaves the Chemist he is stopped in the
street by Mrs Braithwaite to talk about her daughter
Emily's illness.  (This is a wink to Martin's wife,
Philippa Braithwaite and their daughter, Emily.)  
This conversation takes place just outside the shop
called "Secrets" that is located at the corner of
Fore Street and Back Hill.

Martin spots Roger while leaving grocer
.
It took a long time to find this location, but when
Janet Setness, Connie Jefferson and Caroline
Stoebuck were in Port Isaac in May of 2015 they
were able to determine the location.

This is the Wadebridge Leisure Centre. Richard
and Sam were kind enough to show them around
and talk about their experiences with the filming.  
They even moved the high chair that Martin stood
on so that Caroline could recreate Martin's climb
up to coerce the children out of the pool.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
As Martin leaves the grocers, he is heckled by
several of the villagers because of his statements
regarding the village's water supply.

This was filmed at the Liberal Club on Fore St, which
is near the corner of Back Hill and directly across
from the school.  This building has been used as
the village grocers for the entire run of the show.
.
.
.
.
This was filmed in the Camelford One Stop Shop
Council Offices in Camelford.

This building was formerly the primary school.
.
.
.
.
.
They were walking
on the Southwest
Coast Path right at
the top of the
harbour.

The window you see
behind Roger is on
the cottage circled
below.
.
.
.
.
The Mailbox is on the side of the
building that houses the Boat House
Stores on Fore Street.
.
As Martin is leaving the grocer on Fore St, he
looks across the street to the school and spots
Roger through the window.  Roger is at the
piano with students surrounding him as he is
teaching them music appreciation.

The Surgery is circled in
yellow and the parking
spaces circled in red.

The equipment room here was also
used for the scene in the episode.
.
.
.
.
.
I wasn't able to determine if the interior scene was shot in this
building.
.
Martin & Louisa meet on Platt
.
.
.
.
Martin and Louisa meet on the edge of The Platt for their "date" at the pub.  The walk up toward Fore Street
and turn left into the doorway that is meant to go into the pub.  This doorway is actually the entrance to a
holiday let called "Tides Reach", but it is often used as the fictional entrance to the pub.  You can see the
aquarium behind them that is located at the other end of The Platt.  In the picture at the bottom, you can see
in red where they meet and the route they take to the pub.  Circled in blue is the actual pub (The Golden Lion)
where the interiors were filmed in the next scene.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
It's obvious that the interior of this scene was not
actually filmed inside the Old School Hotel.  (The
scenes from Episode 1 of Martin looking at
Louisa through these windows WAS shot into
the restaurant of this building.)

In the previous scene of the music appreciation
class, there are windows on the other wall that do
not match any of the windows in this building.
