Dr. Martin Ellingham is brilliant, dedicated, and highly efficient. He's also brusque, abrasive, and terrified of blood. Once a successful London surgeon, he's now a GP in the idyllic Cornish fishing village of Portwenn, where he's every bit as eccentric as the villagers he serves

"Martin Clunes returns as the socially-challenged doctor in the award-winning comedy series. It's not easy being the village GP in Portwenn as once again, Dr Martin Ellingham is the centre of calamity, drama and lingering gossip. It seems the grumpiness is acute and chronic. The bad mood is no longer in remission. All the symptoms are there, the truculence, the tactlessness, the caustic take on everyone and everything. Doc Martin Series 3 follows the ongoing accidents, emergencies and comic mishaps in Portwenn as the good doctor bumbles through life, all the while trying to pursue his burgeoning but seemingly ill-fated romance with headmistress, Louisa Glasson." -- Container

Episode 1. Martin deals with the case of a young girl who has been acting out. When Louisa Glasson mentions Ritalin to the mother, Martin tries to point out that she is not qualified to give that kind of advice. A new police constable, Joe Penhale, arrives in Portwenn but seems to have a peculiar medical condition. Martin's aunt Joan has a car accident and Louisa faints while teaching a class. Pauline is bored with being a receptionist and desperately wants to give out medical advice so Martin has a proposal for her. Episode 2. With Pauline away for a couple days, Martin gets a new receptionist, Poppy. Bert Large takes Martin's advice to change his lifestyle. Only his idea of a changed lifestyle is to give up being a handyman and open a restaurant. He doesn't quite have the hang of it, however and his stress level definitely doesn't go down. Louisa invites Martin for dinner but her plan falls apart when her new cooker doesn't work properly. When many of the villagers fall ill, Martin concludes that the problem is Bert's new restaurant, but the problem lies elsewhere. Episode 3. Martin and Louisa are still trying to develop something of relationship, but their plan for dinner is again disrupted this time by Louisa's quirky new neighbors. Martin is particularly perturbed by their approach to child rearing especially when he learns that the child has been vandalizing cars. Martin also learns that in addition to being narcoleptic, Constable Joe Penhale is also agoraphobic. He feels he has no choice but to report him but aunt Joan reminds Martin that many individuals have phobias but are still able to work in their chosen profession. Episode 4. Martin confirms to his aunt Joan that she suffers from osteoporosis. When she begins to have a relationship with someone much younger than herself, Martin has great difficulty accepting the fact, but she insists that she is having fun and has no intention of stopping. Carrie Wilson clearly has her sights set on Martin, much to Louisa's annoyance. PC Joe Penhale throws a party for himself. Al Large returns home after having been traveling for a awhile but it may not have been the holiday he makes it out to be
