Dr Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes) is forced to give up his career as an eminent surgeon, and retrain as a GP, after developing a phobia to blood. A vacancy arises in the sleepy Cornish hamlet of Portwenn following the death of the local GP. A regular visitor to Portwenn as a child with his Aunt Joan (Stephanie Cole), Martin applies for the position. However, his complete lack of social skills and human understanding are going to get him into plenty of scrapes, that's for sure!
