Dr. Martin Bamford escapes to the sleepy coastal town of Port Isaac after discovering that his wife has been having affairs with three of his friends. There, “Doc Martin” works through an identity crisis, and encounters many interesting characters along the way. He works on a lobster boat with a local fisherman and kindred spirit Harvey, finds himself as a freelance physician of sorts, and attempts to forget his past.
The Doc’s arrival to Cornwall also coincides with a spate of attacks on key members of the community by a phantom “jelly-maker.” The perpetrator has been incriminating innocent people and driving the small town apart. Doc plays a significant role in uncovering the mystery, bringing peace back to this close-knit community – and also discovers a few things about himself along the way.
Full of humor, mystery and sentiment, DOC MARTIN: THE MOVIE is an entertaining film that gives an in-depth look at the origins of the beloved television series.
