We enjoyed it very much; watched the first four series on Netflix. Love the scenery and the interplay between Doc Martin and Louisa.

Doc Martin - brilliant.

A couple more you may like to investigate (if you haven't already) is New Tricks - about a trio of retired policemen brought back into the force in order to investigate unsolved cases; Time Team - a bunch of archaeologists who take on various historical sites with just 3 days to make some kind of sense of them; and Hustle - a group of highly principled con-artists who pull off the most audacious cons - kindof 20th century Robin Hoods.

There was also an excellent mini-series a while back called Hope Springs, about a bunch of escaped female ex-cons who wind-up in a run-down Scottish hotel rather than sunning themselves in the Caribbean, which was their original plan.

Oh - not forgetting Wild at Heart - the story of an English vet (and family) and a game reserve in Africa for endangered species.

Hopefully Rapidshare, Youtube, FilesTube or something similar will supply.

All of the above have either ended or are on their last series - usually due to having run out of new ideas for scripts, or have simply gone stale after long runs.

Hope there's something there you like.  Smiley

  I believe Doc Martin takes place in Cornwall where my family has its roots so the whole thing strikes a chord with me.
  I have introduced the wife and a few friends to Brit TV and she is quite a fan of the police and mystery shows now. New Tricks, has lasted 8 seasons over there and I hate to think of it leaving the air. We have become fans as well of The Midsumer Murders series, and Inspector Lynley, though I like the sergant better than Lynley.

Thanks Kathy:

You got my wife into watching Doc Martin, she's now into season 2 mid season. I enjoy it, when I get to catch an episode, but missing a bunch doesn't seem to matter a lot, so that's good for me - if I have questions, she'll fill me in.

The terrain is amazing, the buildings old and none seem too refurbished. I guess most call it quaint, I call it drafty, but I find it funny, it seems everyone is always walking up-hill usually on a steep incline - ideally, the Doc's office looks like the highest point, and as they say so often, almost a Catch-phrase "You need a car to get around" I couldn't agree more.

Fun show, reminds me of several lighter hearted 70s shows here, I'd say like a Quincy without too much drama, no shows ideally come to mind, I keep getting into the detective shows, and that's not a good comparison. But it has a feeling of simpler times is what I guess I'm saying, and nothing wrong with that.

Will look into this show. I am hooked on breaking bad right now and whenever I have the time to watch anything, I am catching up with this series. But Doc Martin sounds interesting. Will check out Netflix.

You know Kathy I just installed a little box called "Neo TV" that streams Netflix movies onto my large screen tv and now I don't have to sit and watch all those shows on my laptop. I am loving it.

Take care

Neo TV sounds like a winner.  i have xbox live so i can do the same thing though that, but if i were not paying for the xbox live, i'd look at the system you put in. 

i do like being able to take my tablet and netflix to bed with me, but usually i read at night so i don't watch to often in bed.
