Series seven of the adventures of the nation’s grumpiest doctor and his patients in the Cornish village of Portwenn continues with episode five, Control-Alt-Delete. Fed up with Buddy following him around, Martin (Martin Clunes) decides to find a vet and have him put down. Both Morwenna (Jessica Ransom) and Louisa (Caroline Catz) manage to persuade him that it is not that simple as no vet will put down a healthy dog on Martin’s say so, and a new home is found for Buddy with Angela Sim (Caroline Quentin), a local vet - although Martin will have to take him there himself. The Doc is unimpressed by Angela’s alternative approaches to medicine – even if it is only veterinary medicine – but at least he has managed to offload Buddy. Ruth (Eileen Atkins) finds out what Bert (Ian McNeice) has been trying to make his own whisky, but he eventually gets her to keep his secret. Clive (Malcolm Storry) is suspicious of Mrs Tishell (Selina Cadell) and whom she is cooking for, but decides to give her the benefit of the doubt and give their marriage another go. PC Penhale (John Marquez) wants to ask Janice (Robyn Addison) out, but only succeeds in inviting her to a group BBQ at his place. Then he has to persuade Al (Joe Absolom) and Morwenna to come to make up the numbers. Louisa and Martin’s therapy homework results in a picnic – much to Martin’s dismay – but even this does not go to plan. They are interrupted by Angela and Buddy on the beach, where Angela appears to be hallucinating, and Martin has to get Penhale to help calm her down.
