The Doctor Is Out (Episode #708H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Nov 16, 2016 -- 9:00 PM

As we reach the final episode in Series 7, Martin finds himself in a very unusual situation: trapped by Annie Winton, who desperately wants him to try and save her husband, Jim Winton, despite Jim having been recently diagnosed with terminal cancer. Annie insists that there must be something that Martin can do to help. Meanwhile, Ruth and Bert have a proposition to put to Al, regarding the whisky and the B&B. Louisa is very worried about Martin, and wonders if the breakdown of their therapy could have led him to decide to leave Portwenn for good. She calls on Morwenna, Janice and Ruth for help, but none of them have seen Martin. Penhale drives Louisa up to the Winton Farm, where despite Annie trying to persuade them otherwise, they discover Martin. Now reunited with Louisa, Martin manages to eventually find Jim and perform a life saving operation on him. But is it too late for Martin and Louisa to also save their marriage?

Facta Non Verba (Episode #707H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Nov 9, 2016 -- 9:00 PM

After Martin and Louisa tell Dr. Timoney about their failed date night, she questions their ultimate compatibility. She asks them if it is time they recognize that perhaps they are not meant to be together: something for them to go and think about. Martin has new neighbors: Erica the new Art Teacher at Portwenn school has moved in with her daughter, Bernie. Though Louisa is happy to finally have found a permanent teacher, this proves to be short lived when Erica wants to try out some rather alternative ideas on the children. Penhale manages to protect everyone after a car accident outside the school, and Louisa is very surprised when the victim of the crash turns out to be Dr. Timoney. Penhale is happy to finally have his crime-stopping talents recognized, but is confused when he is offered a transfer to Exeter, particularly as this will mean leaving Janice behind, even though he hasn't quite managed to ask her out yet. Martin discovers that his new neighbour is both noisy and rather accident-prone, and thinks nothing of calling on the doctor next door. Bert, his whisky dream now in tatters, decides to go back to something he knows, and becomes a handyman, though even this doesn't really prove worthwhile when his first customer, Erica, has an accident and he has to call Martin in to help. Louisa and Martin are intrigued when Dr. Timoney invites them for an additional therapy session she might just have worked out an answer to the question of their relationship.

Other People's Children (Episode #706H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Nov 2, 2016 -- 9:00 PM

Martin and Louisa don't seem to be having much success with their therapy, so Dr. Timoney advises that they should try and take things back to the beginning of their relationship, and plan a date, and try not to let their busy lives get in the way, even though Louisa is also trying to plan James Henry's first birthday party. A last-minute request from Danny, Louisa's ex-boyfriend, brings him and seven children from London camping on Ruth's farm, supervised by Al and Bert, but they need some children from a local school to show them around: Louisa feels she has to help her old friend out, even though this further adds to her load. Martin is not at all pleased when Danny proceeds to try and intervene in their troubled relationship. Things are going slightly better for Mrs. Tishell and Clive, though Clive worries that he will not be able to keep up when Mrs. Tishell invites him back into the bedroom, with disastrous consequences. Things don't start off too badly for Martin and Louisa at the restaurant, but when Danny calls saying one of his children, Jake, has gone missing, date night is effectively over. When they finally find Jake, they also find Bert's whisky still, and Penhale is keen to lay down the law to Bert. Martin and Louisa are left wondering if anything will ever go right for them, when Martin uncovers a health scare at James's party, that makes all the guests leave very quickly: not even Ruth's birthday cake can keep them there.
