This is the best series yet! The cast are so comfortable in their parts, and viewers are now so solidly familiar with the characters, that the writers can get away with having fun with them, with greater irony and a more strongly farcical element. The wedding and honeymoon were richly and humorously disastrous, and yet the love that poor, emotionally damaged Doc Martin feels for his long-suffering wife is touchingly obvious. Martin Clunes' performance is just wonderful as the irritating, overbearing doctor, with his inability to understand other people or to communicate what he so deeply feels. We can see why he loves Louisa - why she loves him is harder to fathom, but somehow, we love him, and the bunch of glorious eccentrics who surround him in Port Wen.
