Doc Martin: After learning that his wife has been cheating on him, Doctor Martin Bamford impetuously leaves London for a week in a coastal village he visited as a child. Charmed by the scenery and the locals, he stays longer than he planned, makes friends, learns to fish, and helps solve a mystery.
Doc Martin and the legend of the cloutie: Now settled in as the local G.P., Doc Martin longs for privacy. Everyone in the village knows everything about his life. He wants to buy a large, isolated farm, but his plans fall through when a London family swoops in. To secure his dream home, the doctor uses local folk magic and invokes a fabled beast.

If you love the tv show, you'll hate this! Cheerful, friendly Doc Martin engages in hijinks. No thanks.

Don't get this if you are thinking you are adding a few extra episodes to the television series. This doctor is very different from the one in the series (even has a different surname) but once you accept that the movies are fun. The second one goes a bit overboard with implausible aspects.

I knew the Doc Martin movies (2001) would be much different from the Doc Martin series spin-off (2004 - ?). I was introduced to the series from TPT public TV. Interesting to see Martin Clunes play Doc Martin in a completely opposite character. Interesting and somewhat entertaining but the series is vastly more entertaining!

Better than series.

Enjoyed the movies, but unliked scrubble4 I loved the series. Undoubledly Martin Clunes is a great comedic actor. I must add Port Issac to my list of 'must sees' in England. It is too beautiful.

Doc Martin the movies is much better than the TV series. The character is more multi-dimensional than the anti-social misfit portrayed in the series and the village folk are not all daft. Why did they resort to stereotypical cliches when they produced the show for the small screen?

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I wished the Doc's amiable personality in this film showed a little more in the subsequent seasons/series 1-6. It would be nice to see him smile from time to time each series. I do enjoy all the series thus far, and will feel a bit gloomy when it all comes to an end. =(

These are the two made-for-TV movies that inspired the hit series. They're enjoyable, but Doctor Martin Bamford is not at all the Doctor Ellingham of the series, and I don't think this character would have had a hit TV series. However, it's fun to see where the series started.

Rated 5/10.

The television show is charming and humorous, but these made for tv movies, although well-acted as most things are that come from BBC, are so improbable and almost ridiculously cartoonish, that we were disappointed.

Judith (to The Phantom, who's posturing to jelly attack Doc Martin): "PUT... THE JELLY... DOWN!"
