The eighth series of Doc Martin starring Martin Clunes as Doctor Martin Ellingham, a GP with an unfortunate bedside manner and an inconvenient phobia of blood, continues with episode four on Monday 4 Oct at 9.00pm.
Caroline Catz stars as Martin’s wife Louisa alongside Ian McNeice, Dame Eileen Atkins, Joe Absolom and Selina Cadell. Martin (Clunes) is unaware that Louisa (Catz) has applied for a Child and Adolescent Counselling course, so he is put out when he hears a voicemail inviting her for an interview.
Lousia is dismayed to discover that she needs to take the Year Six pupils sailing as Pippa is unwell. In a bid to get fitter for Sal, Clive (Malcolm Storry) takes up race walking, but disaster strikes when Clive takes a turn for the worse.
Ruth (Atkins) confirms that she is going to sell the farm, so Bert (McNeice) decides it is time to quite the whisky business. Bert’s decision leaves Al (Absolom) in the lurch, but Morwenna (Jessica Ransom) helps Al come up with the idea to approach Ken about taking over running of the pub. However, Ken is not convinced by Al’s track record.
Doc Martin Season 8 Episode 3 airs Wednesday 4 October 2017 from 9.00pm-10.00pm on ITV.
