Series 7 Episode 2 - The Shock of the New (Spoilers)
Martin Clunes returns to play the nation’s favourite grumpy medic in a brand new series. After Martin’s first session with Dr Rachel Timoney (Emily Bevan), he realises that if anyone is going to be able to help him change, then Dr Timoney seems well qualified. The return of Louisa (Caroline Catz) raises more questions around their relationship – in order to stay together, perhaps they need to spend more time apart, living in separate houses until they have worked through their issues.
Meanwhile, Al (Joe Absolom) welcomes his first fishing guests, but an uninvited one means that his good review is not guaranteed. Bert (Ian McNeice) decides to try to rejuvenate trade at the restaurant by joining an online voucher scheme offering a 2-for-1 lobster special. Morwenna (Jessica Ransom) thinks her responsibilities in the surgery have increased and asks Martin for a pay rise. With her return to school imminent, Louisa has to find a new babysitter to look after James Henry, and reluctantly decides to offer Janice (Robyn Addison) a trial. Aunt Ruth (Eileen Atkins) has to face up to the fact that there is no escaping the ageing process, but does not want Martin to be constantly making her accept her health limitations. PC Penhale (John Marquez) is excited to receive his new police issue taser, but Portwenn does not exactly offer many opportunities to try it out.
