"In this delightful fish-out-of-water series, BAFTA-winner Martin Clunes (Shakespeare in Love) plays Martin Ellingham, a rude, self-centered doctor with a crippling phobia of blood. Formerly a hotshot London surgeon, he relocates to the idyllic seaside village of his youth and immediately offends everyone in town. He eventually earns the grudging respect of the local citizens, but what he really wants are the affections of Louisa Glasson (Caroline Catz, Murder in Suburbia), a beautiful schoolteacher. Thesecond series sees the return of Louisas former beau, a development that makes the good doctor even crankier. Also starring Ian McNeice (Dune) and Stephanie Cole (Waiting for God)."
