The Shock of the New (#702H) Duration: 45:55 STEREO TVPG

After Martin's first session with Dr. Rachel Timoney, we see he may have me this match: if anyone is going to be able to help Martin change, then Dr. Timoney seems well-qualified. Louisa's return further raises questions around their relationship: in order to stay together, perhaps they need to spend more time apart, living in separate houses until they have worked through their issues. Meanwhile, Al welcomes his first fishing guests, but an uninvited one means that his good review is definitely not guaranteed. Bert decides to try and rejuvenate trade at the restaurant by joining an online voucher scheme, and offering a 2-for-1 lobster special with the help of Gus, a local fisherman. Morwenna thinks her responsibilities in the Surgery have increased, and asks Martin for a pay raise. Louisa, her return to school imminent, has to find a new babysitter to look after James Henry, and reluctantly decides to offer Janice a trial. Aunt Ruth has to face up to the fact that there is no escaping the aging process, but doesn't want Martin to be constantly making her accept her health limitations. Penhale is excited to receive his new police issue Taser, but Portwenn does not exactly offer him plenty of opportunities to try it out...

It's Good to Talk (#703H) Duration: 45:44 STEREO TVPG

Martin has decided he will be the one to move out of the Surgery to allow Louisa the space she needs, which Louisa does really appreciate. Louisa is intrigued to meet Martin's therapist, Dr. Rachel Timoney, but is not quite so happy when Rachel suggests that they should have therapy as a couple, instead of Martin having it on his own. Aunt Ruth, however, manages to persuade Louisa that being a part of it will allow her a chance to defend herself if she needs to. Janice's babysitting of James Henry does not get off to the best of starts, but fortunately Penhale is around to help her out. After his disastrous lobster special evening, Bert disappears, and Al is very concerned when Ruth tells him about Bert's behavior, and when he finds out there are bailiffs at the restaurant. Mrs. Tishell is concerned that Martin will not be able to look after himself living on his own, so decides that she is the best person to help him. The new Portwenn Radio DJ, Melanie, is trying to revitalize the station with a Healthy Eating Week segment, and tries to get Martin involved, but she ends up getting more than she bargained for when Martin has to perform an operation live on the air.

Education, Education, Education (#704H) Duration: 46:02 STEREO TVPG

Louisa and Martin have their first therapy session together - though neither of them was expecting that they would be given homework. Peter Cronk, now 15, approaches Louisa to ask if Martin will allow him to do work experience at the Surgery. Louisa is surprised, and impressed, when Martin agrees to this: perhaps he is learning to change after all. Morwenna is not quite so happy about it when Peter starts trying to boss her around in the Surgery. Meanwhile, Mrs. Tishell is surprised by the return of her husband, Clive, and even more so when he tells her he wants to give things another go. Bert, after losing the restaurant and having nowhere to live except this new camper van, is looking around for other opportunities, but he is keeping everything close to his chest, and definitely away from the eyes of Penhale, who is trying to impress Janice. Louisa has to call Martin to help her when one of her pupils, Jessy, collapses during a school excursion, and together they rush Jessy to the hospital. Peter's work experience doesn't work out quite as well as he had hoped, though he is very grateful he did it when Martin helps him to successfully treat his mother, Mrs. Cronk.

Control-Alt-Delete (#705H) Duration: 44:50 STEREO TVPG

Martin reaches his breaking point with being followed around by Buddy: he resolves to find a vet to have him put down. Morwenna, and eventually Louisa, manage to persuade him that it isn't quite that simple - a vet will not put down a healthy dog just on Martin's say-so. They intervene and find a new home for Buddy with Angela Sim, a local vet, though Martin will have to take him there himself. Martin is not impressed by Angela's alternative approaches to medicine, even if it is veterinary medicine, but at least he has managed to offload Buddy onto her. Meanwhile, Ruth finds out what Bert has been up to, in trying to make his own whisky, and he eventually persuades her to keep his secret. Clive is suspicious of Mrs. Tishell and who she might be cooking meals for, but decides to give her the benefit of the doubt so that they can really give their marriage another go. Penhale wants to ask Janice out, but only succeeds in asking her to a group BBQ at his place, and then has to persuade Al and Morwenna to come too, to make up the numbers. Louisa and Martin's therapy homework results in a picnic, much to Martin's dismay, but even this doesn't go to plan, when they are interrupted by Angela and Buddy on the beach: Angela appears to be hallucinating, and Martin has to get Penhale to help him calm her down, so that he can treat her and find out what has been going on.
