The Wrong Goodbye

Season 4, Episode 8: Finale

Last episode of season 4! Martin and Pauline are surprised by the number of patients coming to see him on the last day before his Surgery closes and he moves to London. Taxi driver Tommy delivers a patient to the Surgery, but complains of migraine headaches himself. Martin checks him for any serious brain conditions, and tells him to make an appointment with the new doctor if the headaches continue. Martin is driving out of Portwenn with the moving men when he sees Tasha fall from the Harbour Day stage. With a little bit of help from a guilty Bert and Al, he is able to diagnose Tasha's medical condition, and is shocked to learn that she is married to taxi driver Tommy, and that he is driving Louisa to her hospital appointment. Louisa's life is in danger. Martin rushes after Louisa, finding her safe at the scene of a road accident caused by Tommy. Martin and Louisa help Tommy to a nearby inn where his medical condition can be treated; but due to her exertions, Louisa goes into premature labor.

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.

It's Good to Talk

Martin has decided he will be the one to move out of the Surgery to allow Louisa the space she needs, which she does really appreciate. Louisa is intrigued to meet Martin's therapist, Dr. Rachel Timoney, but is not quite so happy when Rachel suggests that they should have therapy as a couple, instead of Martin having it on his own. Aunt Ruth, however, manages to persuade Louisa that being a part of it will allow her a chance to defend herself if she needs to. Mrs.

Education, Education, Education

Louisa and Martin have their first therapy session together -- though neither of them was expecting that they would be given homework. Peter Cronk, now 15, approaches Louisa to ask if Martin will allow him to do work experience at the Surgery. Louisa is surprised, and impressed, when Martin agrees to this: perhaps he is learning to change after all. Morwenna is not quite so happy about it when Peter starts trying to boss her around in the Surgery.

Control-Alt-Delete

Martin reaches his breaking point with being followed around by Buddy: he resolves to find a vet to have him put down. Morwenna, and eventually Louisa, manage to persuade him that it isn't quite that simple - a vet will not put down a healthy dog just on Martin's say-so. They intervene and find a new home for Buddy with Angela Sim, a local vet, though Martin will have to take him there himself. Martin is not impressed by Angela's alternative approaches to medicine, even if it is veterinary medicine, but at least he has managed to offload Buddy onto her.
