The village of Portwenn is thrown into chaos with the arrival of a new family.

A family of city slickers seeking a new life by the sea disrupt the tranquillity of Portwenn. Anthony and Terri Oakwood and their son Sam move in next door to Louisa Glasson (Caroline Catz) having bought their house from recently widowed Mrs Averill. The family is unconventional in their lifestyle and their arrival upsets Louisa, Martin (Martin Clunes) and the other locals.

Doc Martin "City Slickers" airs Thursday, May 27 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable1011 and 11).

They manage to gatecrash an intimate dinner Louisa has prepared for her and Martin. With their romantic plans ruined, the disgruntled doctor makes a hasty exit leaving Louisa to deal with the neighbours from hell.

During the move from her old house, Mrs Averill has lost her cat. She’s lonely without her pet. Desperate for company she goes to see the doctor suffering from a rash. She thinks she is suffering from eczema. True to form Doc Martin sends her away with ointment and little sympathy.
