I just started watching Doc Martin and wanted to know how the series started. He is a funny guy and every episode is a new adventure and always entertaining.
We have watched all the episodes and happy to see the movies available. Very good. We want more Doc Martin
This was a Christmas present for my husband who faithfully watches the Doc Martin series. It was a big hit on Christmas and again on New Year's Eve when we watched it together. Great to see the difference between the movies and the series.
The recipient of this gift is a real Doc Martin fan, and had seen the moveis some years ago, but was pleased to receive them in order to 'catch-up'.
I like the product, but I have been trying to get a defective disc replaced since Jan. and I still don't have it.
Excellent seris of Doc Martin
Just a little slower than the series, but this is to be expected. I only watch 1 or 2 of the episodes from the series at a time, so they will last! I love them!!!
Excellent comedic acting by the entire cast. Great writing and directing. Martin Clunes is, absolutely, delightful !
Doc Martin is a delight to watch and share in the subtle fun. The environment pictures are really stunning to see. The actors do a terrific job bringing Doc Martin to life.
I liked the one movie I saw, but was shocked and a little disappointed that the surly straight and brilliant Doc Martin I 'knew' from the series was a smoker, drinker, and laughed a lot in the movie! It was weird. Then I read about how the movies came first and then Martin Clunes came up with the 'new' , series, Doc Martin with a new writer who made him more 'fun' as a completely lovable weirdo. I find myself ACTING like him, he's so convincing and you almost ENVY his ability to be so awful. :,
We liked the series so had to see the movies, liking them. No complaints. I appreciate that you don't share my information nor send unwanted emails. I know how to teach you.
Not as intesresting as the TV series
Ilove the weekly show and bought this for my husband. It was great to see how it all started. I thought Doc was very different in this movie compared to his weekly series.
We bought it to see 'how it all began.' Worth the money. Will share with friends and family.
Acorn offers the dvds i like and i like the quality of the items they offer and you can not find them else where and the prices are reasonable.thank you
Very much enjoyed the Doc Martin series and enjoyed seeing a much gentler side
I happened on the tv show by chance and love it. I bought the above so I could see how it started. Enjoyed both the movies, and the series.
This is the original Doc Martin before it was changed to a series, and the Doc turned grumpy. I must admit, I like him both ways--Martin has a beautiful infectious smile--but it's the grumpy character you connect with more, and want things to go right for--once you meet his parents in the series, you understand a lot more about how he is 'in real life', and why he reacts to situations or at times, doesn't have a clue how to interact with others. I highly recommend both the original 2 movies, and the series--long may it go on--it will be interesting to see how they raise the child.
After having seen the TV Series 1 through 4, We HAD to have these to complete the 'picture' !
Just like the episodes I already own, these are great. Thank you for thoughtful and hilarious elevisionl
A funny, fast-paced drama! A great gift idea for your Mother or Grandmother. No offensive language.
A fun and funny intro before the TV series began! I purchased 2 of these sets as gifts, having enjoyed the Doc Martin series. Even though one can watch them on Netflix, it is nice to share with friends.
I enjoyed watching the 2 discs that preceded the TV series of Doc Martin. Martin Clunes was more 'humorous' in the movies version. He is very 'versatile' as an actor and does a convincing job of portraying his different characters. The personalities of his main characters are not all identical and he is skillful at expressing their various shades of comedy and drama. I bought the series because I enjoy watching PBS. PBS is a bit more interesting than the standard offerings of the other stations. I do not have cable TV and PBS seems to offer more selections for a 'mature' audience.
Wonderful uplift from the daily grind. A great diversion from everyday doldrums.
Following series provoked interest in the movies.Clunes a great actor!
Quite entertaining antecedents of the series Doc Martin.
I ordered this set of two Doc martin movies for my wife's birthday. They arrived exaclty on the day right after we had finished diner and she was starting to question if I'd forgotten her birthday. :, Perfect timing!
It was simple to order the movies and they arrived at my home in a timely manner and in good condition. I'm very satisfied with the transaction
Good movies but Tv series is much better. Would not have purchased for the price if I could have found cheaper or used.
These 2 movies are great. But you must keep in mind these aren't exactly like the Doc Martin series. But a good introduction to the character.
I adore Doc Martin and loved the movies leading up to the series.Would love to visit the place where it was filmed. British T.V. is so refreshing and has a different edge to dramas and comedies.
Enjoyed the films. Fun to see the Doc actually smile.
I like Dr. Martin shows that come on TV but did not like this movie. I hope the TV shows do not cease.
My mom has been telling me about Doc Martin for years and recently I caught the show on TV - well it's wonderfull and funnier than I imagined. We want to take a trip there to visit the town where it's filmed.
We bought the Doc Martin TV movies because we like the TV series so well. It is amazing that these nice but not stellar TV movies were the inspiration for the witty show with quirky yet lovable characters.
I have watched all 5 seasons of the series. Interesting to see the evolution of the character from the beginning.
This two-movie set is worth the small price to pay to understand the history behind Doc Martin's TV series.The first movie in the two-part dvd is the early professional life of Doc Martin, set in London, a a young married OB-GYN. He is married to a doctor. I do not want to ruin the movie for everyone or anyone, but what transpires explains the deep-seeded hurt which makes Doc Martin afraid of relationships in the TV series. He goes back to his childhood summers by visiting Cornwall and acquires a deep affection for the people currently living there. It is a love story, and a satisfying one. The second dvd in the package is about Doc Martin's early attempt to settle in Cornwall and his fiasco over attempting to acquire what is now his medical clinic. The characters are extreme, their behaviours are outrageous, and even Doc Martin takes on characteristics and activities that were not to be seen again in the TV series. Yet, it does help to explain his psychological development, hints at his acquisition of
We have been following the series on KLRN and decided we would like to know the beginning. Have enjoyed the movies almost as much as the series and will probably watch it several times.
I am amazed at how quickly my movie arrived. It was bought for my mother's birthday. However, I was a bit disappointed the Doc Martin bobble head was out of stock.
This is a gift for someone so it hasn't been opened yet but Doc Martin is always great
Bought the movies as a gift for my parents. Don't know anything about them. But, I can say that ordering from your company was easy and I will use your catalog again.
Liked the story but did not like the marijuana smoking or the cussing.
Absolutely love the series, Doc is incredible. The town folk are quirky.
We purchased the film after devouring the series so we we had to adjust our expectation of Doc Martin's different characterization but Clunes shows his talents and beautiful Port Isaac glistens.
great movies and great service from acorn
We like English programs . The Dr. Martin movie and TV program are some of the best so far.
