Deep down Doc Martin is a gentle, generous soul. The trouble is, no one ever sees that side of him.

Join the grumpiest doctor in the West Country as he wins the hearts of Portwenn... at least for a little while.

Doc Martin "Blood is Thicker" airs Saturday, September 29, 2012 at 4 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT 21.1/cable 1011 and 11).

Doc Martin visits the Flint brothers at the remote country home they share with their father Victor and mother Doreen. Wallace and Paddy Flint have been suffering chronic stomach disorders, and a blood test confirms they have salmonella poisoning.

Martin discovers the cause of the problem is probably the putrid contents of their fridge. But there’s something else odd about this family which has a bizarre passion for taxidermy. The brothers and their father refuse to allow the doctor any where near Doreen.
