Martin could be a London surgeon again, but will he?

To solve her farm’s money problems, Aunt Joan starts a small bed-and-breakfast business. Her first guest, unexpectedly, is another local farmer, Ted, who has also got into financial difficulties. Initially they’re a good match, but Joan soon finds that Ted is far from the perfect guest. Pauline’s suspicions are confirmed when she steams open a confidential letter addressed to Martin and discovers his contract offer for the London job. Suddenly insecure about her own future, she confronts Martin, who offers her no reassurances other than to write her a reference.

Doc Martin "Do Not Disturb" airs Thursday, September 1 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 11/cable 1011).

Martin deals with the victim of an accident without hesitation, proving to both himself and Edith that his blood phobia is completely cured, and he is now fully able to be a surgeon in London again.

Martin Clunes (Men Behaving Badly) returns for the fourth season of DOC MARTIN as the brash doctor Martin Ellingham, whose blunt opinions and tactless manner cause mayhem in a small Cornish community. Ellingham – once a celebrated London surgeon – flees from his position after developing a phobia to blood. After retraining as a general practitioner, Ellingham gets a job in the beautiful but sleepy village of Portwenn replacing their deceased local doctor. But his abrasive personality doesn’t exactly mesh with the pace of life in Cornwall.
