Doc Martin is a British television comedy drama series starring Martin Clunes

The show revolves around Ellingham’s interactions with the local Cornish villagers. Despite his medical brilliance, Ellingham is a gruff man, completely lacking in social skills. His cold, abrasive manner offends many of the villagers and leads to frequent misunderstandings. He seems to be short tempered and lacking in a bedside manner, however going about his duties in a no nonsense attitude, not believing in wasting time chatting with the villagers.
His haemophobia, which results in frequent, nearly debilitating bouts of nausea and vomiting as he attends to routine patient care needs, becomes known in the village as a matter of gossip and ridicule.
Caroline Catz plays primary school teacher Louisa Glasson. Doc Martin is attracted to her but finds it difficult to express his feelings. Louisa, whose caring and nurturing manner contrasts with his emotionally detached and neurotic behaviour, somehow finds him attractive as well.

    I just finished watching the entire series and I’m kinda sad that it’s over and I have no more to watch! Loved it. You have captured his likeness (and expression!) very well here. Great portrait!

  • I’m a bit sad too Chris. I was dying to see him bring up his baby in his own personal style. Thanks very much.
