There's more than one way to tell a good story, and Doc Martin is no exception. Before the hit series launched in 2004, two made-for-TV movies introduced the main character and the picturesque Cornish fishing village of Port Isaac (later called Portwenn).Martin Clunes (Men Behaving Badly) stars in both feature-length films as Dr. Martin Bamford. Here he's an obstetrician, and his reasons for leaving London are more personal than professional. Unlike ornery surgeon Dr. Ellingham, he's not rude, irascible,or socially inept-he even smiles! But we get glimpses of his selfishness, short temper, and distaste for dogs. In Doc Martin, the doctor flees to a coastal village to reassess his marriage and his career. In Doc Martin and the Legend of the Cloutie, he resorts to camouflage, subterfuge, and folk magic to get what he wants: a secluded house in the country away from his nosy neighbors in town. Also starring Anna Chancellor (Four Weddings and a Funeral) and Pam Ferris (Rosemary & Thyme).
He's surly, self-centered, rude, and uptight - but he's the only doctor in town. Martin Clunes (MEN BEHAVING Badly) stars as Doc Martin, a hotshot London surgeon forced to change careers when he develops a fear of blood. Relocating to a sleepy, scenic Cornish fishing village, he offends everyone in town and falls in love with a beautiful teacher. This 2-disc condition includes the movies: DOC MARTIN and DOC MARTIN AND THE LEGEND OF THE CLOUTIE.
