Doc Martin is a British television medical comedy-drama created by Dominic Minghella after the character of Doctor Martin Bamford in the 2000 comedy film, Saving Grace.

Dr Martin Ellingham, a brilliant  vascular surgeon at Imperial College London, develops haemophobia (a fear of blood), forcing him to stop practising surgery. He obtains a post as the  GP in the Cornish village of Portwenn, where he had spent childhood holidays with his Aunt Joan.

Despite his medical brilliance, Ellingham is grouchy, abrupt, and lacks social skills.  The series revolves around his interactions with the locals, and his wife Louisa.
