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.

Because it’s widely considered to be one of the worst films ever made, it’s even the subject of the documentary Best Worst Movie (which the library also owns). Most of the crew, including the director and screenwriter, were Italian and spoke very little English. The actors… View more
