And Our Doc learns a valuable lesson that would/should stand him in good stead...do not mess with Cornish women...
Steep learning curve...Series Six coming up and he's still on it
I agree it is a valuable lesson Martin needs to learn
But in the case of Elaine, I think it was just a miss by the writers. The character didn't work and the shtick grew tiresome fast.
I think that's why they went in a different direction in Series 2.
But perhaps there Is a behind-the-scenes story to the change in receptionists??
