Series 3, Episode 7 - Happily Ever After
It's business as usual for Dr Martin Ellingham even though it's his wedding day. He opens the surgery as normal to a stream of patients, including one of the bridesmaids.
Louisa's best friend Isobel, who is heavily pregnant, is hit in the eye with a party popper as Roger Fenn, who is giving Louisa away, raises a toast to the bride to be. The doctor prescribes eye-drops, and a patch to cover the injury. An eye patch with a bridesmaid's dress is not a good look.
Then Martin offends the local vicar who is due to conduct the wedding ceremony. He suggests he has a drink problem. But when he goes to the church to try to placate him, Martin catches him red handed with a bottle of whisky.
The vicar stumbles as Martin tries to take the bottle away from him, falls over, and fractures his pelvis. As the ambulance takes him to hospital, Martin must find a replacement with just three hours to go.
This episode is the first episode of Doc Martin to get into BARB's top five.
