Series 2, Episode 6 - The Family Way
Dr Martin Ellingham's parents, Christopher and Margaret, make a surprise visit to Cornwall to stay with their son.
The doctor hasn't spoken to his parents for seven years, and the relationship between them is barely cordial. He's puzzled why they should turn up out of the blue to see him. But he does his best to welcome them to his home, even though his father delights in sneering at his drop in status from surgeon to GP. Christopher Ellingham is a suave surgeon, oozing charm, nothing like his son.
