Doc Martin: Complete Series Seven
November 16th 2015 | Acorn | DVD
Martin Clunes reprises his role as Britain’s favourite grumpy medic in a new series of the hugely popular, long running drama Doc Martin, so popular that Hollywood superstar Sigourney Weaver (Alien) makes an appearance.
Set in the idyllic, sleepy hamlet of Portwenn in Cornwall, Dr. Martin Ellingham (Clunes - Men Behaving Badly), the town’s sole GP with a brusque bedside manner and a phobia of blood, returns for eight new episodes of the ratings winning drama, as he continues to challenge the community, his wife and even Buddy, a stray dog, who cannot resist his fervent rebuffs.
Having separated for a breather in Spain visiting her mother, Louisa (Caroline Catz – DCI Banks) has returned, but not into the arms of Doc Martin. Insisting on a break while they try and sort out their differences, Louisa moves into the family home and Martin moves out. In an effort to win her back, he agrees to undertake couples therapy with Dr Rachel Timoney (Emily Bevan - A Casual Vacancy).
Life in Portwenn continues around them as Al Large (Joe Absolom – Personal Affairs) tries to set up a new business while his father Bert (Ian McNeice – Rome) decides to move away from an old one; Aunt Ruth (Dame Eileen Atkins – Cold Mountain) faces a health issue which cannot be ignored; and Morwenna (Jessica Ransom – The Armstrong and Miller Show) has found a new flatmate who catches the eye of PC Penhale (John Marquez – In The Club).
But at the heart of it all lies the question – will Martin and Laura’s marriage be saved by therapy? And will Buddy make their house his home?
With many guest appearances including Caroline Quentin (Men Behaving Badly), Gemma Jones (Bridget Jones’s Diary) and Daniel Ryan (Mount Pleasant), the seventh series of this much-loved series comes to DVD as a two disc set complete with extensive bonus features on November 16th courtesy of RLJ Entertainment’s Acorn Label.
