Bert Large could put Portwenn on the culinary map...or give the whole town food poisoning. Bert quits the plumbing trade to open a restaurant, but the opening doesn't go so well when Doc notices blood on his plate and ,the next day, treats many patients with food-poisoning. Doc Martin "Movement" encores Thursday, April 11 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT 21.1/cable 1011 and 11).

Dissatisfied with his lot in life he abandons his plumbing business to open his own restaurant. But as with Bert’s previous enterprises, the new venture is fraught with problems. The opening of Large’s restaurant is far from a success, when Dr Martin Ellingham, who has a phobia about blood, finds a spot of it on his plate. To the embarrassment of Louisa Martin complains to Bert in front of the other customers, threatening a visit from Environmental Health unless he can clean up his act.

To make matters worse for Bert, the following day the surgery is inundated with patients with symptoms of food poisoning, and all claiming to have eaten at his restaurant. Louisa Glasson has also fallen victim to food poisoning after dining at the restaurant with Martin. The doctor is embarrassed to have to treat her in her bedroom and escapes as quickly as he can having demanded a sample.



The Doc Rocks!

I've said it before, I'll say it again - Doc Martin rocks! Love this show, was introduced to it by WXXI. Fell so in love, have taken out Season 1, 2, & 3 from our local library to watch "in order". Still have to take out Season 4 to get up to speed. Am thrilled a Season 5 is in the works - the characters, stories, and witty writing are splendid. The cinematography is breathtakingly gorgeous - I would love to visit Port Issac. Once again, my heartfelt thanks to WXXI for introducing us to Doc Martin and for showing it weekly - we look forward to it every time!
