Portwenn Online
A Magical Cornish Village
Doc Martin is
Sock Monkey
and other
James Henry Toys
Born With a Shotgun
The Sock Monkey is lying on Martin and
Louisa's bed while Louisa is attempting the
"Stir the Baby" maneuver.
The Sock Monkey appears on the table in
front of the staircase in the waiting room four
different times in this episode.
Cats and Sharks
Even though Louisa and James have moved
out of the surgery, the first chance that we
have to see the table in front of the staircase,
the monkey is still there.
The Departed
The sock monkey is still on Pauline's desk.
Driving Mr McLynn
The sock monkey makes the first appearance
on Pauline's desk in this episode.  In the
previous episode, Martin heard his baby's
heartbeat and saw his ultrasound picture for
the first time, so it seems like the sock
monkey appears now because the baby has
become real to him.  The sock monkey shows
up on her desk in every remaining episode in
S4 and I believe we see also it in every
episode after the baby is born.
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?
One little toy is hung on the coat rack by the
back door.  We see James playing with this
one just as he gets the milk splashed all over
his face.
Here are the two sock monkeys.  You can see
the one on the radiator (it stays there through
the whole episode), but you can also make
out the legs of another one on the table just
on the other side of the large bowl.
In this scene we can see James' stuffed cat
on the kitchen table.
A little later, when Martin has to keep him in
the consulting room because they have no
childminder, we see him holding the cat.  
When Mike comes to the rescue, Martin tells
him to take the cat.  Also notice that there is a
stuffed elephant on the mantle.
The sock monkey is even on the radiator
during the dinner party.
Cute little stuffed mouse on the secretary.
The little green frog finger puppet is in the
fruit bowl on the kitchen table.
And the sock monkey is still on the radiator.  
But look at what is on the table - a dummy!  
Did Martin finally cave?
The Tameness of a Wolf
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.
We see James with the little ring with the
multicolored plastic bears again.
