Much the same thing....Spain? Are you sure?!

Doc Martin – ITV, 9pm

DOC Martin has been held hostage so many times, the surprise is PC Penhale hasn't engaged himself as his personal bodyguard.

Tonight he's back in the clutches of yet another crazed villager. Although, handily for the last episode of the series, having time to himself, albeit unwanted, does give him an opportunity to reflect on his and Louisa's future. A moment of realisation he undergoes at the end of every season, before the next one starts, amidst thudding inevitability, with the couple right back at the beginning.

As it stands, Louisa is supposed to be leaving for Spain. Soon, however, she is amidst a rescue party of villagers hellbent on setting the, er, much-loved, Doc free.

It's strange to think that Martin Clunes is now more well-known for Doc Martin than he would be for, say, Men Behaving Badly. Crazy. Anyway, the finale in the series sees Louisa worrying about Dr Timoney's suggestion that she and Martin aren't meant to be together might have prompted him to leave Portwenn for good. Calling on Ruth, Morwenna and Janice for help, she tries to track the down the missing GP, with no luck. However, what Dr Ellingham's friends and family fail to realise is that he is actually trapped up at the Winton farm, where desperate wife Annie is trying to coerce him into performing a life-saving operation on her terminally ill husband Jim. Meanwhile, Ruth and Bert seek out Al to offer him a proposition regarding the whisky and the B&B

  1. Leaving for Spain -in the middle of term?? Sounds like someone's got their series mixed up!!
    Much like the journo who thought that Mrs T was "a patient wearing a neck collar"

  2. This is what you get when you pay your writers minimum wage!!!

  3. Is that the end of this series? ?

  4. Not sure I follow this. Louisa already went to Spain. Why would she go back when she's teaching and running the Portwenn School? Could someone enlighten me on this?

  5. Its not the writers fault. Clunes kept them up beyond their bedtime on a school night

  6. And completely wrong about them being "right back at the beginning" as well.
    Maybe this writer should actually watch the show before putting finger to keyboard. Although wouldn't be the first journo to get caught out this way!

  7. Pepole who like seeing others miseralble will love and defend this show .

  8. I don't understand any of the above comments. There was no reference to Louisa going back to Spain in series 7 at all. What gives?

  9. I don't understand how the Docs' personality changed so much from series 1 to series 4. Is this one of those pod things like in "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"?
