Did You Know?


Some people can develope anaphylactic shock from adder venom, making a shot of adrenaline a real life saver. But adrenaline does not lessen the symptoms caused by the neurotoxins in the venom which can cause nausea, delirium, and full albeit temporary paralysis. Despite about 100 people a year getting adder bites in England, deaths are fewer than one a decade. See more »


Dr. Martin Ellingham: And what about, uh, your friend? What's his name? The big squirrel?
Stewart: Come on, Doc. I don't see Anthony anymore.
Dr. Martin Ellingham: Good. That's good. It sounds like you've made a complete recovery.
Stewart: Yeah. I threw him out. He was taking me for granted.

Very Weak Episode
23 January 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I have to say that I have enjoyed all the episodes to some extent. This one is a really low point. It involves Mark, the police officer, deciding to make his stag party, a camping trip to a nearby woods. When everyone he asks (including Doc Martin) refuses to be his best man, he finally get Al Large to do it. They end up in the woods and tromp around, utterly lost. Unfortunately, Mark gets bitten by a poisonous snake and needs attention. The remainder of the episode involves the Doc locating him in the woods and trying to get some treatment for him. The whole thing is silly. It also has an element of preachiness, as the local boys are up to no good.
