Doc Martin's become as painful as kidney stone jokes

The attraction of this series has always escaped me. The Doc is a poor man's Siegfried Farnon, from All Creatures Great And Small - he's an irritable misanthropist, prone to explosions of temper, but without Siegfried's redeeming qualities of forgiveness and generosity.

Doc Martin: series 8 is just what the doctor ordered

Toby Earle goes for a check-up in Portwenn.

Toby Earle, Evening Standard, 20th September 2017

The summer holidays are over, but the sun almost always shines in Portwenn, albeit sometimes on bittersweet scenes. Here, in a new series, we find reconciled Martin and Louisa raising baby James Henry. Louisa: "Do you think he likes me?" Martin: "Who knows? I didn't like my mother; does it matter?" Elsewhere, daft constable Joe prepares to marry flighty Janice, in a ceremony to be conducted by "a vicar with learner plates on".
