Literary Reference  - From Shakespeare's King Lear.  "He's mad that trusts in the tameness of a wolf, a horse's
health, a boy's love, or a whore's oath."
Connecting the Episode Title to the Storylines
Of course, the main storyline is that Robert was released from custody because they thought he was cured, but his
belief that he was in love with Aunt Ruth, his psychiatrist, was a symptom of the disease (De Clerambault's
Syndrome) that put him into care to begin with.  So the board that released him mistakenly believed that the wolf
was tamed.
Martin thought that he had tamed his "wolf", but his haemophobia has now returned with a vengeance.  
When Bert sees a review in the school newspaper written by a student, he seems to assume that it will be a good
review.  But Becky Wead is like a wolf in sheep's clothing and no one can seem to "tame" her because she's
convinced that Bert's food caused her stomach upset.
When Martin hears that the chemists is reopening, you can see a moment of fear on his face that Mrs Tishell has
returned.  He obviously does not trust in the tameness of a wolf.
Louisa is still not convinced that Mike is qualified to care for James.  Mike has done nothing to make her feel that
way, in fact he seems to her to be a little "too capable."  This makes her a little nervous (and also makes her feel a
little inadequate), so she is just not ready to completely trust him yet.

Original Broadcast:  Sep 16, 2013

EASTER EGGS - There's a scene where a farmer, Mr Nugent, calls Joe Penhale because Robert's car is blocking his tractor.  The farmer is
played by Johnny Bamford, who is the location manager for Doc Martin.  Johnny was also the location manager for Saving Grace and Martin's
character, Dr Martin Bamford, was named for him.  That name carried over to the two Doc Martin movies, but was changed to "Ellingham" for
the series.

EASTER EGGS - When the altercation with Robert is done, Aunt Ruth tells Martin that she had been treating him for De Clerambault's
Syndrome.  This is what Martin accused Louisa of at the end of S2E8 when she tells him that she loves him too (after he drunkely told her he
loved her the evening before).  Of course, the next time he sees her, he mumbles that perhaps he hadn't thought through the diagnosis.

ACTION MARTIN - Martin broke through the door of Aunt Ruth's house, even though Robert was threatening that he would kill him if he came
in.  And then, later, he fought with Robert for the knife (getting cut in the process).

FOOD - When Aunt Ruth is sitting in a cafe with Caroline, she appears to be eating a croissant.

FOOD - Aunt Ruth finds a birthday cake with lit candle on her kitchen table.

FOOD - Joe Penhale has just finished fixing his beans on toast when he gets a call from Mr Nugent about Robert Campbell's car blocking the
road.

FOOD - Martin has taken Aunt Ruth to lunch for her birthday and we see a closeup of her cutting into her steak, which makes Martin
uncomfortable because his haemophobia has returned.  It also looks like she has potatoes and possibly green beans on her plate.

HAEMOPHOBIA - When Martin draws Robert Campbell's blood, he is surprised when he has a reaction to seeing it filling the syringe.  Then,
when he is emptying it into the test tube, he has an even stronger reaction and we see him deep in thought for the next few scenes.

HAEMOPHOBIA - Martin has another reaction to blood when he sees Aunt Ruth cut into her steak at lunch.  Aunt Ruth notices the reaction
and he has to admit to her that he is having a "slight" problem again.

HAEMOPHOBIA - Cleaning the gash on his hand, Martin has a extreme reaction to his own blood.  He quickly hides it when Louisa walks in the
office, but she can tell there is something wrong and tells him that he is looking pale.  

LOOK BACK - After Martin's haemophobia has returned, he is deep in thought as he brews his espresso.  Louisa leaves for work and says
goodbye to Martin, James and Mike, but Martin doesn't seem to hear her and she looks curiously at him before walking out the door.  Martin
suddenly realizes she has left and looks over to the door but she is already gone.

LOOK BACK - Louisa has had a rough day and can't get James to eat.  When Martin tells her that Mike got him to eat a large breakfast and
even bigger lunch, Louisa bemoans the fact that she has to leave him with Mike during the day.  Martin points out that he told her she went
back to work too early and she glares at him as he walks out of the kitchen.

MARTIN & JAMES - Louisa tells James to say "Hello daddy" when he comes in from shopping.  Martin puts the fish in the fridge and walks over
to James and puts his hand to James' forehead.

MARTIN & JAMES - When Aunt Ruth walks into the surgery in the morning, Martin is in his office rocking James while reading a medical
journal.  He tells Aunt Ruth that he had a bad night and so did they.

NICE MARTIN - When Martin tells Becky Wead that he will need a stool sample, her mother interprets that he is asking for "poo-poo."  Martin
gets a container and hands it to Becky and tells her to put a piece of "...poo-poo" into it.  (He is usually a stickler for proper medical
terminology.)

NICE MARTIN - When Martin and Joe meet at Aunt Ruth's farm to confront Robert Campbell, they actually seem to be working together.  Joe
tells him that they need backup: swat team, chopper, armed response.  Martin sincerely asks him if he can get all that.  It's not until Joe says,
"No" that Martin says, "Idiot" and walks away.

NICE MARTIN - Martin is very nice to Aunt Ruth a few times in the episode.  He invites her to lunch for her birthday (with a slight prompt from
Louisa), offers to come by in the evening when she is concerned about a stalker, and offers to make her a cup of tea after the incident with
Robert.

PATIENT NAMES - Martin tells Morwenna to get Robert Campbell's information, but calls him "Mr Cornwall."

RADIOS - We see a radio in Aunt Ruth's kitchen - not sure it if is modern or classic.  Robert has broken into the house and is listening to Aunt
Ruth's call in show on Radio Portwenn.

RADIOS - Another view of the radio on the file cabinet in the waiting room.

RUDE MARTIN - Martin is taking Aunt Ruth out for her birthday lunch, but she is concerned about who left a birthday cake on her kitchen
table, since no one in the village knew it was her birthday.  Martin tells her that it's not unusual for women of her age to have memory lapses
and perhaps she told a neighbor and then forgot.

RUDE MARTIN - As Robert is being taken away, Martin tells Aunt Ruth that she needn't worry about him again.  "By the time he gets out, you,
you'll, um...you, you'll have gone away."

SOCK MONKEY - We see the sock monkey once in this episode, on the kitchen table, as usual.  It seems that Mike is keeping the toys tidy
because we don't see many lying about.

SOCK MONKEY - We see James with the little ring with the multicolored plastic bears again.

We found him on the beach.  I'm thinking he's got hypothermia or something.
Well, stop thinking.

Take Mr Cornwall's details.  I'll be down in a minute.
Take your time.  I need a cup of tea first.  Right.  Oh, hold on a sec.  Portwenn surgery.  Oh, hello Mr Barnett.  How are
you?  No, I said "How are you?"  I think you're supposed to rub it on your rash.  Your rash!  No, I don't suppose it did

So, I thought we'd go to Minnie's Play Time this afternoon, at the library.
I don't think that starts till next week.
No, it started last Monday.
Well, I don't want him cooped up inside all day.
Oh, we'll be on the beach after that.  Should be good weather for sand castles.
Sunblock.  He'll need sunblock.
Packed it.  Factor 50.  Come on then, Sunny Jim.
Uh, it, it's James, actually.  And you'll be back at 5:00, yeah?

We had a meal at Bert's restaurant yesterday.  Sunday lunch.
It tasted funny.
What did you eat?
Well, I had some fish.  Sea bass it said on the menu.
Not you.  What did you eat?
Roast chicken.  Do you think it's food poisoning?
Ah, it's always a possibility.  I'll need to examine a stool sample to be certain.  Can you provide me with one?
What's that?
Poo-poo.
Mum!
Not to worry.  I'll give you a sterile container and then next time you go to the lavatory, put a small piece
of...uh...poo-poo in it and let the receptionist have it.

Radio Portwenn has survived  many years without me.
We've had letters.  Postcards.  An e-mail, would you believe?  The listeners loved you.
Even so, I don't think psychiatric advice should be dispensed in 60 second sound bites.  
But you do it so well.  With wit, warmth, compassion.  And it's so rare to have a proper expert in the studio.  Most of the
people I have to work with know less than me about their so-called speciality.  The gardening guru's allergic to soil.  The
newsreader's dyslexic.  And there's no one round there with a fraction of your expertise when it comes to dealing
with...mental people.
People with mental health issues.
They need you.  We all need you.  This is your chance to help us.
Well, you're putting me in a very awkward position.
I know.  Is it working?
Possibly.

There's a review of out restaurant in here.
Is, is it good?
Well, it's by a Becky Wead.  She says her, her roast chicken dinner, "was the most disgusting meal I've ever had the
misfortune to consume."
So, not good.
It gets worse.  "I was sick throughout the night and all the next morning, poisoned by the unhygienic food preparation."  
Poisoned?  She can't say poisoned.
I think that's libel.
Or is it slander?

Yes.  I need some provisions.
We're not actually serving customers till tomorrow.
Oh, I'm sure that Jenny can make an exception for you, Doc.
So am I.
Oh.  Right.  Prednisone coming up.
Prednisone?  Good God woman.  I have clearly written "Primidone."
Oh.
That could be fatal.
Have you?  Let's see.  Well, it might help if you wrote in capital letters.

Hi.
Sold out of everything else.
Say hello to daddy.  Say, "Hello daddy." Becky Wead wrote a terrible review of Bert's restaurant.  Bert wants an apology.
It's a terrible restaurant.  A terrible review seems fairly appropriate.
It's not that bad.  Although the chicken wasn't very good, allegedly.  Becky said it gave her food poisoning.
That's just a possibility.
So, it might not be Bert's fault then?
I can't discuss my patients.  I haven't had the test results back anyway, and as soon as I go get them back, I still won't
be able to discuss them with you.
That's not much help, is it?
Louisa, you seem rather tense.
Yes, well of course I'm tense.  You've no idea what it's like leaving James with a stranger, trying to work, when all I can
think about is my baby, and counting the minutes till I can get home.
Well, I told you you went back to work too early.
Martin, don't start.  To make things even worse, James has decided that he doesn't need food anymore.
Oh, I wouldn't worry about it.  He ate an enormous breakfast, followed by an even bigger lunch with Michael.
Oh, well.  Good for Michael!

He had a bad night.  So did we.  Go through.
The sooner you get him into an appropriate routine, the better for everyone.
Ruth, hi.
Hi.
To what do we owe this pleasure?
Well, I had half and hour to kill, and I felt like a coffee, and I thought you might like to wish me a happy birthday.
It's your birthday?  Ruth!  Happy Birthday!  Ohhh.  What are you doing to celebrate?
What I always do.  Absolutely nothing.
Martin.
Hmmm?  Um, yes.  I, I could take you to lunch.
All right.  Pick me up at 12:30.  I'm busy all morning.
What are you doing?

Oh, not that awful phone-in?

Well, they've not gone up.  And that newspaper's everywhere, full of lies and slander.
It's actually libel.
Then you should do something about it.
I don't have any time, Bert.
And I don't have any customers, Louisa!
You never did, Bert!

I mean, what's the point?  I feel like life's not worth living.  What's there to look forward to?

Hello, Dr Ellingham.  Can you hear me?
Yes, she can.  What's your…
What's your name?
Call me "Bob."
And what's your problem, Bob?
There's a woman.
Isn't there always?
I've known her for years.  She means everything to me, and I wanted...
I'm afraid I have nothing to say about affairs of the heart.
Not that we're trying to get rid of you, Bob.
Yes, we are!
I'm sure Dr Ruth...
Ellingham.
I'm sure she'd like to offer some advice.
Advice is like snow.  The softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks into the mind.  I can't remember
who said that.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge.  Well, Bob.  I suppose if I had to, I'd suggest that you speak to this woman.  Tell her how you
feel.
Face-to-face?
That's always best.
And she will feel the same about me?  She will love me?

Well, there's no doubt that you have an ulcer.  The only question is whether it's gastric or duodenal.
You said it was food poisoning.
No, I didn't.  I'm going to make an appointment for you to have an endoscopy.
You agreed it was 'cause of the chicken.
No, I didn't.
Tell him, Mum.
I think, I think you did actually mention the, the  possibility that it could be.
The possibilty, yes, but not the certainty or even the probability.  Do you know the difference between those words?
Don't talk to my mum like that!
I'll talk how I want.  It's my surgery.  The tests on your feces rule out food poisoning.  Is there any part of that sentence
that either of you are struggling with?  Good.  Take this, and go away.

So, someone's been in the house.
Perhaps it's one of your friends.
I don't have any friends in Cornwall.  And who would know it was my birthday?
I don't know.  Maybe you made an announcement on Radio Portwenn?
You heard my program?
No, of course not.
I made no announcement on the radio.
It's not uncommon for women of your age to experience memory lapses.  Perhaps you told one of your neighbors and
then forgot.
Well, happy birthday to me!  
Joe
Num, num, num.  PC Joseph Penhale, 3021.  Uh, is it a matter of life and death?  It's just, technically, I am on my
refreshment break.  I'm sorry, Mr Nugent, but is it vital that you get through that particular gate right now?  I don't think
it's appropriate to speak to an officer of the law in that manner.  If you repeat that threat, I could actually arrest you.

I hope you're not driving anywhere this afternoon.
I hadn't planned to.
Good...
Perhaps I have a secret admirer.
Is that a realistic proposition?
Well, you seem not to think so.  However, a red rose is a classic symbol of romantic love, and one appeared on my car
the other day.  It's just possible I have a rather amorous stalker.
That's just wishful thinking.
Oh, Martin, you know very well, people are surprisingly eclectic in their sexual inclinations.
Eclectic?  Well, that's one word for it.  Do you want me to come round tonight?
I don't.  You haven't touched your fish.
Ah, no.
Something wrong?
No, I'm fine.
Martin.
I'm fine.  Possibly a slight problem with blood.
The haemophobia?
No.  I'm sure it's nothing.  It'll disappear again.

together.  Where are you going?
Just downstairs.  I didn't lock the doors.  And we don't want to be disturbed, do we?
No.
I want to protect you Bob.  Keep you safe.  I'll just go down to the kitchen.

As far as I'm aware, he's some sort of stalker with a history of mental illness.
Dangerous?  Violent?
Quite possibly.
We need backup.  Swat team, chopper cover, armed response.

Oh, I'm sure he is.  Look, why don't we sit down?  Come on.  It's perfectly safe now.
Two armed officers to the north of the building!  One to the south!  I want a sniper on the roof!  And keep the dogs in

No, I'm worried about my aunt.  And I'm worried about you.
There's nothing wrong with me.
Yes, there is.  You've got Type 2 diabetes.  I had your blood tests back.
You're lying.
Oh, you must listen to my nephew, Bob.  He does know what he's talking about.
I need to take your baseline sugar level, give you a shot of insulin, and get you to the hospital.
I'm going nowhere.  Tell him Dr Ellingham.
Of course I will, Bob.  But before he goes, I wonder if perhaps he might not help you?  Do you really think, Martin, that
insulin is the best thing for Bob right now?
What the hell are you talking about?
I thought perhaps Largactil might do a better job.  Or Benzodiazepine?
Yes...  I agree.
Well, at least the policeman's shut up.  That's good, isn't it?
You don't think he's planning something?
I very much doubt it.
You mustn't leave me.
Then I won't Bob, if that's what you want.
You were always very kind to me, Dr Ellingham.
I'm ready.
No!
Oh, please let him do this, Bob.
Tell him to go away!
I think you better do as he says, Martin.
What?  And leave you alone with a psychopath?
I'm not a psychopath.  I am not a psychopath!  You want me to prove it?
Uh, no.  I believe you.

Am I Right in assuming he's a former patient?

Probably made worse by the diabetes.  I'll make you a cup of tea when they've gone if you like.
Well, I'm not going back into that kitchen.
What?  Ever?
Well, certainly not tonight.  I've been out here long enough.  Tomorrow I'm going to look for somewhere to live in the
village.
You know, you really don't have to worry about him.  He'll be locked up for...years.  By the time he gets out, you, you'll,
umm...you, you'll have gone away.
Fingers crossed.

Ah, good.  Bumped into Bert.  Found myself defending Becky Wead.  Freedom of the press, fair comment, that sort of
thing.
Quite right.
She's written something about you now.
What?
"A bedside manner is a concept completely alien to Dr Ellingham.  He's patronizing, abrasive, and completely
disempathetic."
It's not even a word.
I know Martin.  But apart from that, I think it's very well written for a 10 year old.
Yes.
You sure you're all right?  You look very pale.
I'm fine, thank you.
Hmmm.

MARTIN & LOUISA
Martin and Louisa are awoken by the fishermen bringing an unconscious Robert Campbell to the surgery.  Martin asks Louisa if she
recognizes the man and then asks her to bring a glass of water for the patient before she goes back upstairs to see to James.
Louisa is leaving for work and has a discussion with Mike about his plans for James during the day.  Martin is standing with his back to them
brewing his espresso, but he is deep in thought after just realizing that his haemophobia has returned.  As Louisa is leaving out the back
door, she says goodbye to all three of them and looks slightly concerned that Martin seems unaware of his surroundings.
Martin comes home with the shopping and Louisa is folding the laundry.  She tells James to say, "Hello daddy" and Martin walks over to him
and feels his forehead.  Louisa tells him about her day and the confrontation with Bert over Becky Wead's review of his restaurant.  She asks
Martin if Becky really has food poisoning and he tells her that he doesn't know yet, but that he wouldn't be able to discuss it with her.  Louisa
is upset that he can't help her and as Martin is leaving the room, he mentions that she seems a little tense.  Louisa pours out her frustration
about the bad day she had, that she has to leave James with a stranger and spends all day counting the minutes until she can get home.  
Martin's response is that he told her she went back too early.  That doesn't sit well with Louisa and she says she can't even get James to eat
now.  Of course, Martin throws more fuel on the fire by saying that he ate an enormous breakfast and an even larger lunch with Michael.  
Martin leaves the room and Louisa says, "Oh well.  Good for Michael!"
Aunt Ruth stops in the next morning and even though they had a bad night with James, all seems calm in the Ellingham household.  Aunt
Ruth tells them that it is her birthday and Louisa gives her a hug.  Louisa goes back to stand next to Martin and just gives him a look and
quietly says his name.  Martin only takes a beat to understand her prompt and invites Aunt Ruth to lunch.  He is rewarded by a smile from
Louisa.  Another indication that they are starting to develop a "couples shorthand."
Martin is attending to the wound on his hand when Louisa walks to the door of the consulting room.  She expresses her concern about his
injury, but he insists that he is fine and manages to hide his queasiness over the blood.  He asks about her day and she tells him about her
resolution with Bert over the restaurant review.  She then tells him that Becky has now written something about him and reads to him the
critical review she wrote about her visit to the surgery.  Martin's only real reaction is that she used a term that isn't even a word, but he
agrees with Louisa that it was pretty well written for a 10 year old.  Louisa again asks if he is okay because he looks very pale, but he insists
that he is fine.  Louisa doesn't buy it, but leaves him to it and he goes back to tending to the wound.

Morwenna's House
.
.
This is the house where Morwenna lived with her
grandfather in S5 and now is her house.

The house where it is filmed is called "Sibby's
House" and is located on Rose Hill, two doors down
the hill from the house where Louisa lived in S2
.
Two views of the front
of the house.  The one
on the left is looking up
the hill.  You can see
the tall white house in
the background is
"Chicago House"  This
is the house that Louisa
lived in for S2

Louisa's Office
.
.
.
The interiors for the school have mostly been
shot in the primary school in Delabole.  For this
episode, they decided to locate Louisa's office
in one of the rooms in the actual old school
building that has always been used for all
exterior shooting.  (This building now houses
The Old School Hotel and Restaurant).

They used the windows facing across the
harbour so that Louisa could look worryingly
across the harbour at the surgery because she
was fretting about leaving James.

Robert spying on Aunt Ruth
.
.
.
We see Robert Campbell spying on Aunt Ruth in the village.  Robert is standing
on the overlook on Fore St, just up from the Golden Lion.  Aunt Ruth is parking
her car next to the outdoor patio at the slipway.  After Robert leaves the rose in
her car, he stands inside the Fish Cellars and watches her return to the car.

Aunt Ruth & Caroline in Cafe
.
.
When Aunt Ruth and Caroline are sitting
in the cafe discussing Radio Portwenn, I
originally thought they had to be
somewhere on Fore St overlooking the
harbour.  But in looking at possible
locations I couldn't find any matches to
the view over Caroline's shoulder after
Robert drives away in his car.

I finally found the spot - it's at the top of
the village and in a building that was
recently expanded and currently houses
Hooper and Shaw.  

Notice that in the picture on the right,
although the angle isn't exactly the same
(I can't control the Google truck!), you
can see that the view of Khandalla
across the harbour matches.  You can
also see the streetlight, the road sign just
to the left and the roof and chimney that
you can barely see at the bottom of the
window behind Caroline.

Below, on the left, is the view when you
rotate the Google camera and you can
see the square window that would have
the view down the road.  On the right
below is a closer view of the building.

Radio Portwenn
.
.
For this series, Radio Portwenn has
moved to the second floor of The
Edge Restaurant.
.
I found this shot of the green
wall being built.  Was it for
Doc Martin?
.
The Edge Restaurant is on New Rd
right next to the car park on the
coastal path. (also right across from
the Bay Hotel)

Bridge where Robert Follows Aunt Ruth
.
.
We see Robert waiting in his car and then following Aunt Ruth over a bridge and
then to her farm.  I found this bridge over near Rough Tor and the quarry.  There
is the bridge on the left that has a weight limit and just to the right is the road that
drives through the stream. The level of the water in the stream can vary and
sometimes can be crossed in a car, but other times would be too deep.  

This spot has been used two other times by the Doc Martin crew.  The first time
was in the movie, Doc Martin and the Legend of the Cloutie, when the customs
agents get their car stuck in the water.  It will again be used in S6E8 when
Penhale is rushing Martin to the airport and he drives through the stream.

Chemist

For Series 4, 5 & 6, the Chemist has been
located in a shop on Church Hill at Fore St.  
The shop is actually a sweet shop called
"Pride of Place".

Lunch with Martin & Aunt Ruth
.
.
Aunt Ruth's birthday lunch was in a restaurant called "Irina's" located inside the
Camelot Castle Hotel in Tintagel.

This hotel has been used several times in the production of Doc Martin.  The
initial interview when the Doc comes to Portwenn, during the hunt for Mrs Tishell
when she kidnaps James, and for Martin & Louisa's wedding reception.
