A tale of two TV series: Favorite shows chart the itinerary for a U.K. journey

Our readers share tales of their rambles around the world.
Who: Friends Angela Hughes (the author) and Ginger Harden of Arlington.

“Doc Martin” is a favorite of both of ours, and Port Isaac plays a major role in the series about a London surgeon who takes over a Cornish village practice after developing a phobia about the sight of blood. The combination of eccentric villagers and Doc Martin’s curmudgeonly personality result in awkward moments. We timed the trip so it would fall during the filming of its reportedly final season.
