Doc Martin Series 6
Manufacturer: Acorn Media Brand: Acorn Manufacturing
"â€œSweet, stirring, and completely addictiveâ€ â€”Slate â€œOne of the funniest, most entertaining shows on televisionâ€ â€”Sunday Express (U.K.) Heâ€™s surly, tactless, self-centered, and uptightâ€”but heâ€™s the only doctor in town. Even on his own wedding day, Dr. Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes, Men Behaving Badly) is all scowls. Then following a calamitous honeymoon, he and Louisa (Caroline Catz, DCI Banks) must learn to live together, raise a child, and manage two careers. Itâ€™s a big adjustment for both, especially Martin, whoâ€™s unaccustomed to clutter and noise. And yet heâ€™s still not as picky as their OCD manny. Factor in the Docâ€™s usual string of batty patientsâ€”including a hypochondriac, a hoarder, two elderly tattoo artists, and a bumbling constable with a string of self-inflicted injuriesâ€”and Martin is soon more ill-tempered than ever. Plus, his crippling blood phobia is back, and his ghastly mother (Claire Bloom, The Kingâ€™s Speech) picks a bad time to show up at the Ellinghamsâ€™ door. With much at stake, Martin turns for advice to his aunt Ruth (Emmy winner Eileen Atkins, Cranford), perhaps the sanest person in Portwennâ€”but it may already be too late.

Basil Fawlty is a much put-upon, hard-working hotel manager whose life is plagued by dead guests, hotel inspectors, and riff-raff. Of course his biggest headache is his "little nest of vipers," his nagging wife Sibyl. Together they run their hotel, Fawlty Towers, with a little help from the unflappable Polly and the trainee waiter from Barcelona with marginally more intelligence than a monkey, Manuel.]]> Basil Fawlty, as created and performed by John Cleese, is the rudest, most boorish, most hilariously obnoxious man on the face of the planet. What a natural for a TV sitcom! His screen wife, Sybil (Prunella Scales), put it best in the episode "The Psychiatrist": "You're either crawling all over them, licking their boots, or spitting poison at them like some Benzedrine puff adder." He mockingly replies, "Just trying to enjoy myself, dear." With his gangly frame and contortionist abilities, Cleese brilliantly punctuates Basil's outrageous faux pas with absurd gymnastics and turns Three Stooges-style pokes and kicks into a slapstick ballet. Scales's Sybil is the genial but obliv...
