The Portwenn Effect

Season 1, Episode 4

It's time for the Portwenn Players Dance, an auspicious event in the village's social calendar, and Bert the plumber is in charge of selling tickets. Louisa buys two tickets and invites Martin. But Martin doesn't dance, and most certainly not at social occasions. At the office, Martin meets with a patient, Mark the constable, who confesses an embarrassing dilemma - he fears his lack of success with the ladies has something to do with size, and wants to hear the doctor's opinion of what is "normal." Later, Martin makes a house call to the park ranger, Stewart James. The two seem to have a lot in common until Stewart introduces Martin to his "friend" Anthony, who just happens to be a six-foot, red ... squirrel!

Rescue Me

We start back in Portwenn with Martin, but Louisa is not there. After their tumultuous time last series, Louisa has gone for a break to visit her mother in Spain: to have some time to think and get some perspective on their relationship. Martin is faced with the questions: will Louisa come back to him; and what can he do to make sure that she does? Martin knows that he needs to try and change for the sake of his marriage, and promised Louisa that he would see a therapist to try and effect this change. Aunt Ruth manages to find him someone very well qualified to see Dr. Rachel Timoney.

The Shock of the New

Louisa's return further raises questions around their relationship: in order to stay together, perhaps they need to spend more time apart, living in separate houses until they have worked through their issues. If anyone is going to be able to help Martin change, it may be Dr. Rachel Timoney. With her return to school imminent, Louisa also has to find a new babysitter to look after James Henry, and reluctantly decides to offer Janice a trial.
