Years of grumpiness have finally caught up with Dr. Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes, Men Behaving Badly). With his marriage in trouble, Martin finally agrees to see a therapist. He may have met his match in the young and smart Dr. Rachel Timoney (Emily Bevan, The Casual Vacancy), but can she cure his caustic personality and crippling blood phobia? And more importantly, can she help bring Louisa (Caroline Catz, Murder in Suburbia) back to Martin?
If that weren’t enough, Martin contends with the declining health of his aunt Ruth (Emmy® winner Eileen Atkins, Cranford), the Large family’s calamitous business endeavors, and the return of a know-it-all vet (Caroline Quentin, Blue Murder) who is the daughter of the GP that Martin replaced. Also in this series, Oscar® nominee Sigourney Weaver (Alien movies, Avatar) guest stars as an American tourist visiting the scenic Cornish village. Can Martin make time for his wife and son while dealing with Portwenn’s idiosyncratic inhabitants?
