Martin searches for the answers to the odd behavior of P.C Penhale's brother.

Martin is shocked to find Louisa and Aunt Joan knocking at his door before his office has opened. Louisa has had a medical scare and wants Martin’s reassurance that everything is fine.

Doc Martin "Perish Together as Fools" airs Thursday, July 22 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 11/cable 1011).

P.C. Penhale, still officially the world’s worst policeman, has an unexpected visitor — his older brother Sam. Martin notices that Sam has some problems with his memory and co-ordination. It’s probably just a virus, but when Martin takes Sam’s family history, he decides there is a very small possibility that Sam has a rare genetic disease. It turns out that Martin diagnoses a different illness that will change Penhale’s opinion of his brother forever.

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.
