We start Season 7 back in Portwenn with Martin, but Louisa is not there.
After their tumultuous time last series, Louisa has gone for a break to visit her mother in Spain: to have some time to think and get some perspective on their relationship.
Martin is faced with the question – will Louisa come back to him; and what can he do to make sure that she does?Martin knows that he needs to try and change for the sake of his marriage, and promised Louisa that he would see a therapist to try and effect this change.Aunt Ruth manages to find him someone very well qualified to see – Dr Rachel Timoney.However, Martin still can’t get hold of Louisa to understand what she’s thinking and whether she even wants to stay married to him, so is still none the wiser as to what her plans are.Desperate to speak to Louisa, and determined to make his appointment with Dr Timoney, Martin is prevented from doing either of these things by events in Portwenn in the shape of Steve Baker and a Portwenn Lifeboat exercise.Will Martin miss the phone call he is waiting for from Louisa…and his first therapy appointment?
