Pertwenn bubbles with trauma in the exciting fourth season of Doc Martin.

Doc Martin airs Sundays at 4 p.m. and encores Thursdays at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11).

Life in the beautiful Cornish village of Portwenn has become ever more infuriating for Dr. Martin Ellingham since the heart-wrenching decision to call off his marriage to local headmistress Louisa. Louisa has left, and Martin has begun to question what keeps him in Cornwall. It’s certainly not his relentlessly annoying patients.

On a visit to the hospital, Martin is stunned to meet Edith, his old girlfriend from medical school days who is now a top-ranking doctor with a flourishing private practice.

Martin learns there is a prestigious surgeon’s job coming free in London that is perfect for him if he can overcome his blood phobia. But all Martin’s thoughts of the future are
turned upside-down when Louisa unexpectedly returns to Portwenn. She wants nothing to do with Martin, but she has big news of her own — she’s pregnant.

Martin Clunes (Men Behaving Badly) returns for the fourth season of DOC MARTIN as the brash doctor Martin Ellingham, whose blunt opinions and tactless manner cause mayhem in a small Cornish community. Ellingham – once a celebrated London surgeon – flees from his position after developing a phobia to blood. After retraining as a general practitioner, Ellingham gets a job in the beautiful but sleepy village of Portwenn replacing their deceased local doctor. But his abrasive personality doesn’t exactly mesh with the pace of life in Cornwall.

The Doc Rocks!

Love this show! Stumbled across it on WXXI and became so engrossed as the weeks went by I started doing "research" on the web about it. Realized that I was topsy-turvy (since I was watching Season 4 on wxxi) and also found out that Season 5 won't be available for quite some time. SO, I found out some of our local libraries have all the Doc Martin DVD's so I've checked them out in order and have just finished Season 3. As soon as I've got some free time, I'll be running to the library for Season 4 :)
The characters are just wonderful, the scenery and views are breathtaking, and Martin and Louisa are a pleasure to watch. Martin Clunes is brilliant as Ellingham, and the writing has me hooting with laughter every episode. By the way, my vote for the baby's name is Isaac, in honor of Port Isaac (where the show is filmed), and also because Isaac (if I remember correctly) means laughter!
Can hardly wait for Season 5 - thanks wxxi for airing this splendid show!

Doc Martin

I love this show... It is the most entertaining... I think everyone wishes they could speak their mind like Martin and Louisa is beautiful as his love... I grew up in a small town and people were characters.. I think that may be what is missing in todays society.. I am hooked I watch again and again...
