I watch Doc Martin faithfully. The first person I have to touch is Doc himself, (played by Martin Clunes).
My first thought was, he’s such a jerk, why do I watch this? Then I realized. He’s clueless. He’s almost like an idiot savant, can kick out a diagnosis in no time. Picture going to a party, being introduced to him and the first thing he says you is; “Get to the hospital, you are about to have a heart attack.” It suddenly hit me, he’s a lot like Sherlock Holmes. Just the facts, no chit chat.
When you watch the new Sherlock, with Benedict Cumberbatch, you see the writing on the screen with what’s he’s thinking.
A fun show, even if Doc is a little offensive. 🙂
