DOC MARTIN: PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Sam North
Relive the magic of ITV’s best loved drama series starring Martin Clunes.
Doc Martin arrives in the picture postcard fishing village of Portwenn, Cornwall. Once a high-flying London surgeon, his suddenly developed blood phobia means he has to take a job in a local practice.
But while the Doc’s medical skills are second to none, his bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. He immediately starts infuriating the locals, none more so than school teacher Louisa Glasson…

DOC MARTIN: MISTLETOE AND WHINE by Sam North
The festive season in the small Cornish village of Portwenn is going to be anything but easy for curmudgeonly Doc Martin. His idea of a perfect Christmas Day is to remain steadfastly alone and catch up with back issues of The Lancet.
However, Portwenn is fighting off the cold and frost with a period of determined revelry before it heads into its deep winter sleep, and his patients are even more exasperating than usual. Not to mention his on-off relationship with local school teacher, Louisa.
It will take all of Doc Martin’s willpower to fend off the attentions of the Christmas spirit…
