“Doc” Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes) is prominent London surgeon, that is, until he developes a paralyzing fear of blood and settles as a GP in a remote Cornish fishing village. The Doc is as boorish as the hamlet of Portwenn is placid.

In Season Six of Doc Martin, enjoy a fresh array of dreadful misunderstandings, unintended affronts and regrettable conflicts as the gruff Doc makes his rounds. It also heralds the arrival of Doc’s even more tactless mother, played by the inimitable Claire Bloom.

Wednesdays at 9pm on WGBX 44
