Sam North

Synopsis:

Meet the ultimate Scrooge... The festive season in the Cornish village of Portwenn is not going to be easy for curmudgeonly Doc Martin.

However, Portwenn is fighting off the cold and frost with determined revelry before it heads into its deep winter sleep, and his patients are even more exasperating than usual. Not to mention his on-off relationship with local schoolteacher, Louisa. It will take all of Doc Martin's willpower to fend off the attentions of the Christmas spirit...

A Keeper

Author:

Graham Norton

Synopsis:

The mystery of Elizabeth Keane's father is one that has never been solved by the people of Buncarragh, though not for lack of speculation. Her mother Patricia had been assumed a spinster until she began dating a mysterious man from out of town, and within months had left Buncarragh and had married. Less than two years later, Patricia was back, with a new baby but no husband by her side, and unbendingly silent about her recent past - a secret she would take with her to her grave. When Elizabeth returns to Ireland after her mother's death, she finds the house of her childhood stuffed full of useless things, her mother's presence already fading. And perhaps, had she not found the small stash of letters, the truth would never have come to light...
