Sigourney Weaver, makes a brief cameo appearance in tonight’s episode of Cornish based comedy drama Doc Martin tonight.
Weaver plays an American tourist with ancestral connections to Cornwall who visits the Portwenn chemist to buy eye drops to treat her glaucoma where she meets Dr Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes).
In true Doc Martin style, he snaps, “Your accent is very thick. I can’t understand what you’re saying,” when she suggests a smile would help.
Another new arrival is Louisa’s latest young teacher Erica (Kelly Adams), who upsets the children with her unorthodox approach and alternative ideas to art, when she’s not fainting!
Also tonight, Penhale is confused when he is offered a transfer to Exeter, Bert decides to go back to being a handyman, and Louisa and Martin are intrigued when Dr Timoney invites them for an additional therapy session.
Doc Martin: Facta Non Verba is scheduled for broadcast tonight (October 27) at 19:00 on itv CHOICE (DStv channel 123) with a repeat showing on Sunday 1 November at 18:25.
