Portwenn gets a little taste of Hollywood this week as Sigourney Weaver makes a cameo appearance alongside the nation’s grumpiest doctor in Facta Non Verba, episode seven of the current series. After Martin (Martin Clunes) and Louisa (Caroline Catz) tell Dr Timoney (Emily Bevan) about their failed date night, she questions their compatibility and asks if it is time for them to recognise that perhaps they are not meant to be together. The arrival of some new neighbours – Erica (Kelly Adams), the new art teacher at Portwenn school, and her daughter Bernie (Beatrice Playfoot-Orme) causes mixed reactions. Louisa’s initial joy at having found a permanent teacher proves short-lived when Erica wants to try out some alternative ideas on the children. Martin discovers that his new neighbour is noisy, accident prone and thinks nothing of calling on the doctor next door. Penhale (John Marquez) is happy to finally see his crime-stopping talents recognised when he manages to protect everyone after a car accident outside the school, but is torn when he is offered a transfer to Exeter - particularly as this will mean leaving Janice (Robin Addison) behind. With his whisky dream lying in tatters, Bert (Ian McNeice) decides to go back to something he knows. He reverts to being a handyman, but is disheartened once again when his first customer, Erica, has an accident.
