Series 3, Episode 5 - The Holly Bears A Prickle
Doc Martin and Louisa are finally going on a date. They have found the perfect spot for romance, the stunning grounds of a country house while classical music plays.
It all looks so promising, they even hold hands in front of everybody. Surely Louisa must win her man?
So Louisa seizes the opportunity of a quiet moment away from the crowds for a romantic kiss. But the clumsy doctor manages to ruin the moment with an inappropriate remark.
It is the final straw for her. She has tried so hard to win the doctor, but he doesn't have a romantic bone in his body. She ends their affair, leaving Martin shell shocked.
The break-up hits Martin harder than he anticipated. He can't concentrate on anything. But there's one more chance to redeem himself when he gets an urgent call for help from Louisa to treat her friend Holly.
Holly has injured her back when out walking in Portwenn and has been forced to recuperate at Louisa's house. Defying doctor's orders she gets out of bed, and collapses, cutting herself badly on a bottle. Will his healing abilities fix their rift as well?
