Hazardous Exposure
Portwenn Online
A Magical Cornish Village
Doc Martin is
Director:  Paul Seed
Writer:  Charlie Martin
After vying with Jennifer for customer attention, Sally learns that she is finally allowed to practice alone
and resume her old job so she is keen to see off her rival.  Jennifer plans to leave Portwenn but a
marriage proposal from Bert changes her mind.  Hypochondriac Malcolm Rayner complains of a cough
which Martin, given that Malcolm is a builder, diagnoses as asbestos poisoning.  Malcolm, believing he
is dying, gets drunk and arrested by Joe, who panics posting asbestos warnings around the village.  
When he impales himself on his staple gun Martin rescues him but his blood phobia makes him vomit.  
A bigger blow for the doctor is the arrival of his mother Margaret, who coldly informs him that his father
has died.  Nor is she very good with baby James though she seems anxious to make amends.  Martin
is wary.
