Annoyed that the reference Martin has given her terms her merely 'competent', Pauline works to rule. Chaos ensues. Joan starts a bed and breakfast, her first guest being Ted Nugent, a neighbour who has lost his farm. His breath smells vile and, after he collapses, Martin finds that it is due to his eating his hair in worry. Martin accompanies Edith to a conference where she is giving a speech. She has plans to spend the night with him but, after administering to the ills of the hotel staff, he returns to Portwenn instead. Written by don @ minifie-1

He's Just Not Happy
22 February 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Doc has been asked to start again as a surgeon in London. He is still dealing with the blood issue, but there are positive signs. He is to go to London to be with Edith when she gives her big speech to the OBGYN community. She has designs on him and books a single room, coming supplied with all her feminine stuff. She is a selfish, harsh woman, but she is taken with him. Meanwhile, Aunt Joan, who is strapped for money, decides to turn her farmhouse into a B&B. Her first customer is a grizzled farmer from an adjacent farm. He is losing his property and is depressed. He is also quite ill. Martin is continually having to attend emergencies, including a sting from a jellyfish, shortly after Martin fires hers. Louisa continues to try to figure out what is right for her. It's obvious that the Doc cares about the impending birth, but neither can outrun their stubbornness. While at the hotel where Edith is staying, the Doc confronts his demons. The final episode of the fourth season should be quite revealing.
