Doc Martin Collection: Series 1-4

It’s impossible not to love this series. It tells th story of a successful London surgeon who, for reasons it would be unfair to reveal in a review, suddenly becomes afraid of the sight of blood. So he takes a job as a General Practitioner in a small village in Cornwall, where he quickly learns that his gruff big city bedside manner just won’t be tolerated by the locals.  Martin Clunes is fantastic as the curmudgeonly doctor, a man the audience (like the villagers) learn to love but only after a long, long time. The supporting cast is brilliant, too, and varied enough to keep you watching each episode to see what they will do next.
