Aunt Joan's car crash with an elderly couple may be a clue to a surprising diagnosis.

Doc Martin "Driving Mr. McLynn" airs Thursday, August 11 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 11/cable 1011).

Martin is called to Louisa’s new home after she has a dizzy spell while shifting furniture. Martin urges her to slow down, but is shocked to learn that Louisa has applied to be her school’s head teacher again.

Aunt Joan is involved in a car crash with the McLynns, an elegant elderly couple. When P.C. Penhale rushes to the scene and tries to impose his authority, he is ignored by both drivers.

Edith visits Martin for some advice on her medical research, and Martin reveals he has applied for the prestigious surgeon’s job in London. Wanting to confront Martin about his attitude towards her and the head teacher position, Louisa arrives on the seen and is taken aback to find Edith already there. Martin sees Mr. and Mrs. McLynn behaving oddly in the village, and makes an astonishing diagnosis.

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.
