Martin Le Foll chirurgien brillant et reconnu, découvre brusquement qu'il a la phobie du sang. Un an plus tard il s'installe comme simple médecin dans un petit port breton, Port-Garrec.

Each episode of Season 1 is better than the one before, culminating in an ending so funny I think I had tears in my eyes. He just never learns, does he?
I still can't quite put my finger on what makes Martin so charming, since I'm not sure I would enjoy knowing him in person. Probably (and due in large part to the brilliant Martin Clunes) it is because he is so very real, and you can't help but identify with his out-of-place, misunderstood persona. Haven't we all been there?
Simply a brilliant show - extremely funny, while taking itself seriously.
Can't wait for Season 2!
Dr. Ellingham ("Martin or Dr. Ellingham, please. Not `Doc Martin!'"), during one simple operation, found himself overwhelmed and unable to continue. The sight of blood suddenly sickened him, not a good thing for a surgeon. It stopped his career cold. He retrained and accepted the job of Portwenn's GP, far away from London and from the people who'd learned of his phobia.
But Doc Mar...Dr. Ellingham...seems to have a gene missing in his make-up. He is all too frank, oblivious to human courtesies, awkward, means well but has one of the worst bed-side manners in miles. If you're a young boy who has sprained an arm, an elderly gentleman whose wife is using too much hormone cream, a well-intentioned busy-body who stops by for tea or a cancer patient, don't expect much from the doctor by way of chit chat or hand holding. Even with an actor as good as Clunes, this could be a tiresome one-joke premise, except that Portwenn has a classic collection of idiosyncratic residents, all played by some skilled British actors. There's Doc Martin's aunt, Joan Norton, played by the fine Stephanie Cole, so good in Waiting for God. Joan is an elderly, brisk, no-nonsense woman (wise, too, of course) who wrings a chicken's neck to prepare it for dinner. She lives by herself competently on her farm. There's Bert Large, played by the equally fine Ian McNeice. Bert is Portwenn's handyman and plumber. He's a short man so fat he prefers to give the orders while he sits and trains his son to do all the work. There's the town's policeman who is big, competent, young, shy and concerned about...ah...size. The town's schoolteacher, who cannot understand how Doc Martin can be so obtuse, is about Doc Martin's age, not married and... we'll have to see. Maybe something will happen in season two. It certainly didn't look like romance when, at the end of season one, Doc Martin helpfully mentions to her the possible causes of bad breath right after she unexpectedly kisses him, something he was too ill at ease to initiate himself. There's an assortment of small town biddies, blokes and giggling teenager girls who all love a bit of gossip. Periodically showing up for one-time parts are such established actors as Richard Johnson, Celia Imrie and John Alderton.
Doc Martin finds that in Portwenn he has to deal with human nature as often as he has to deal with diarrhea. But with human nature he hasn't a clue. Still, when he suspects something is wrong with a patient, he's not only usually right but he'll do whatever it takes whoever he offends to get good care for the person. Because the quality of the wring is so high, the installments are amusing and satisfying. Good actors make Portwenn's residents more like odd but possibly real people than the usual cut-out yokels. Portwenn itself is a star, too. The town is right on the Cornish coast, picturesque as all get out, with a friendly pub, sea air and easy jaunts down country roads to some beautiful scenery.
Most of all is Martin Clunes as Dr. Ellingham. Clunes is a big man with a large head, large ears and a wide mouth. He's not handsome. Clunes, however, is a fine actor who can dominate a scene. He also can effortlessly project cluelessness, umbrage and impatience...and do so while he also makes us realize Doc Martin is almost an innocent when it comes to human interactions.
Doc Martin is superior entertainment. Season one consists of six episodes totaling 280 minutes on two DVD discs. The video/audio transfer is excellent.
This series is about two people in search of love and happiness: Doctor Martin Ellingham, an arrogant chief surgeon from London, and a local elementary school teacher Louisa Glasson, who will soon be a middle aged old maid school teacher. They both have never found success in "love." Martin, forced to leave his powerful position as chief of vascular surgery in London because of a sudden onset of panic attacks at the sight of blood, applies for the position as GP in Port Wenn, a village near his fraternal aunt's farm, where he spent summers as a child. He meets Louisa on his flight to Cornwall, to be interviewed by the committee that will hire him. Lousia is the "lay" representative from Port Wenn. Their meeting gets off to a bad start for both, but they both come away from that initial meeting puzzled and not understanding their feelings for each other. As the series progresses, their interaction stirs emotions and sexual tension. Martin Clunes stars as Doc Martin, and Carolyn Catz stars as Louisa Glasson.
Running side by side with the "love story" is Doc Martin's trials and tribulations with the locals and their quirky problems and ways. More than any series I've ever watched, the top quality filming of these episodes leaves you with a feeling that you are an invisible observer wandering about the village observing its life, and chiefly the day's activities of Martin Ellingham. I sincerely hope they continue this series, as has been rumored. P.S. And you can understand every word spoken by the cast, in contrast to much of television in the UK. (Try understanding the long running series "All Creatures Great and Small"; the books were great, the TV show was obviously for local Brits, only.)
