Doc Martin (TV/DVD)

Doc Martin (TV/DVD)

If you’re looking for something fun to watch over the holidays, I highly recommend Doc Martin, a BBC television comedy/drama series.  The show centers around Dr. Martin Ellingham’s new career as a GP in the fictional town of Portwenn, a job he applied for after developing an unfortunate aversion to blood while a surgeon. Martin Clune flawlessly portrays the title character:  a brilliantly thick-skinned doctor totally lacking in social skills.

The show seems to be a cross between Twin Peaks and House– the eccentric townspeople provide plenty of ammunition for Doc Martin’s tactless demeanor.  Individual episodes can stand alone, but I recommend watching them in order. Our Westside location has Seasons 1-4 of Doc Martin available on DVD.  If you love dry British humor, you’ll love this show.
