This catchy comedy drama stars Martin Clunes as Martin Ellingham, whose truculence and tactless manner causes mayhem in a small Cornish community. The series details the trials and tribulations of the brash Ellingham, once a celebrated London surgeon who left his job after developing a phobia to blood. After retraining as a general practitioner, he gets a job in the beautiful but sleepy village of Portwenn, replacing their deceased local doctor-but his abrasive personality doesn't exactly mesh with the pace of life in Cornwall.
Facta Non Verba (#707H) Duration: 45:41 STEREO TVPG
After Martin and Louisa tell Dr. Timoney about their failed date night, she questions their ultimate compatibility. She asks them if it is time they recognize that perhaps they are not meant to be together: something for them to go and think about. Martin has new neighbors: Erica the new Art Teacher at Portwenn school has moved in with her daughter, Bernie. Though Louisa is happy to finally have found a permanent teacher, this proves to be short lived when Erica wants to try out some rather alternative ideas on the children. Penhale manages to protect everyone after a car accident outside the school, and Louisa is very surprised when the victim of the crash turns out to be Dr. Timoney. Penhale is happy to finally have his crime-stopping talents recognized, but is confused when he is offered a transfer to Exeter, particularly as this will mean leaving Janice behind, even though he hasn't quite managed to ask her out yet. Martin discovers that his new neighbour is both noisy and rather accident-prone, and thinks nothing of calling on the doctor next door. Bert, his whisky dream now in tatters, decides to go back to something he knows, and becomes a handyman, though even this doesn't really prove worthwhile when his first customer, Erica, has an accident and he has to call Martin in to help. Louisa and Martin are intrigued when Dr. Timoney invites them for an additional therapy session she might just have worked out an answer to the question of their relationship.

Annie insists that there must be something that Martin can do to help. Meanwhile, Ruth and Bert have a proposition to put to Al, regarding the whisky and the B&B. Louisa is very worried about Martin, and wonders if the breakdown of their therapy could have led him to decide to leave Portwenn for good. She calls on Morwenna, Janice and Ruth for help, but none of them have seen Martin. Penhale drives Louisa up to the Winton Farm, where despite Annie trying to persuade them otherwise, they discover Martin. Now reunited with Louisa, Martin manages to eventually find Jim and perform a life saving operation on him. But is it too late for Martin and Louisa to also save their marriage?
