In Loco (Episode #202Z)

KQED Plus: Mon, May 27, 2013 -- 7:00 PM

Louisa is nervously awaiting an interview for promotion to head teacher of Portwenn Primary School, and she's anxious to make a good impression. But the odds seem to be stacked against her. Dr. Ellingham is on the board of governors, and she's not sure she can count on his vote. Meanwhile, Bert Large is testing out his culinary skills on the villagers. He's taken over the running of the fish and chip shop while owner Mrs. Cronk is in the hospital - and goes to some unusual lengths to improve the food! Martin discovers that the skin infection affecting some of the local children is not impetigo as he had initially diagnosed, but a rare condition usually only passed by animals.

Old Dogs (Episode #201Z)

KQED Plus: Mon, May 20, 2013 -- 7:00 PM

Dr. Martin Ellingham is still as clumsy as ever when it comes to forming relationships with the opposite sex. Just when things were beginning to look rosily romantic between him and pretty school teacher Louisa Glasson, he made a terrible faux pas. She can't forgive him for accusing her of failing in her dental hygiene regime. Meanwhile, Muriel's condition deteriorates in the home. Then Martin realizes that her problems are being caused because she is dehydrated, and that has caused her to become confused. At the surgery, Martin is taken aback to find a strange girl working in reception.

Haemophobia (Episode #106Z)

KQED Plus: Mon, May 13, 2013 -- 7:00 PM

The tourist season has arrived in Portwenn. Disgruntled by the invasion of holidaymakers, Martin grimaces as he makes his way through the crowds. Then he notices an attractive woman, and stops to stare ... at her chest! She can't believe it when he says he'd like to examine her chest. Martin was actually trying to warn the woman about the dangers of sunbathing for fear of skin cancer, but his usual abrupt and quirky manner has caused offense. Gossip about the blood phobia which forced Martin to terminate his brilliant career as a surgeon seems to have spread round the village like wild fire. Two patients in the surgery can't resist mentioning the 'b' word to Martin. Then he gets an urgent call from the pub. Bert has had a terrible accident while working there, and he's bleeding profusely. The sight of blood pouring from Bert's wound begins to trigger the all too familiar panic attacks for Martin. But on closer examination he realizes the blood is actually tomato ketchup!
