Doc Martin

Better The Devil (#401)

Martin's dreams of the future are turned upside-down when Louisa returns to Portwenn with big news. [46 minutes] TV-PG Closed Captioning

This episode has not aired in the past few months on Iowa Public Television.

PBS Video

Series Description: DOC MARTIN is a catchy comedy drama that stars Martin Clunes (Men Behaving Badly) as Martin Ellingham, whose truculence and tactless manner causes mayhem in a small Cornish community. The series details the trials and tribulations of the brash Ellingham, once a celebrated London surgeon who left his job after developing a phobia to blood. After retraining as a general practitioner, he 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.
