I disagree with the reviewer who says that your story reflects the Martin and Lousia of the canon. It doesn't and I think that is a good thing. The Doc and Louisa of the canon were always mired in silly misunderstandings worthy of a 1960s romantic comedy. Their "relationship" was based on brinksmanship never on the way in which couples resolve issues.
The Martin and Louisa you present are mature adults who are willing to work on their problems in a realistic way. I am waiting to see how you bring them back together and I hope it doesn't involved walks down hills, tearful speeches and mis-directed declarations of love.

I appreciated the spoiler; you were really starting to worry me, honey. As always, extremely well written. I look forward to the next chapter!

It seems there is another meal that is likely missed. I can't see them sitting together any time soon, except for agitated discussions.
I was never sure in the show if DM really was against having kids, but I think he certainly never planned it. However, I personally always thought he might have realised in front of White Rose Cottage after dealing with the Oakwoods that LG might have some.
However, I agree that it is a possibility that he would be against it and it is believable that he spluttered it out like that.
I hope your beacon of light is not too far away (considering the time gaps you sometime leave between the "parts").

What I recall Martin tellling Louisa is, "You would make a wonderful mother!" This is much more basic than the Liverpool-Portwenn dilemma. This increases that dilemma to the 3rd power. We are in the water but it is difficult to find anything to hold onto. This does not deviate from the M and L of the Canon. Good work!

Ah, yes. The maw of doom has ingested them and they will have TO WORK TOGETHER to survive and thrive. Sad but this crisis of wills and personalities must be dealt with.
Now must hang on waiting for the next installment!

How many times can one persons absolute disregard for anyone else's opinions be if not overlooked at least rationalized?

I'm looking forward to part 8, I need to see the dawn :)

Hey there! You are killing me with suspense-what a great story! I have just discovered doc martin about a month ago and have absolutely fallen in love with it. I can't wait for the new series to be completed and shown here in the US. Lots of what you have written are things I have thought of myself but I sooo want them to stay together. So happy to have discovered this whole fan fiction community. You all seem like folks I would enjoy meeting. Maybe a Port Isaac trip for fan fiction"ers" after all is finished hmmm?

Oh, Martin! I guess the discussion about a future together didn't become any easier.
Factually he is absolutely right, but practically completely off the mark. I agree that it has been a potentially serious situation, but I cannot see how you can prevent any seven year old from running in a boring supermarket. Except it's the young Martin Ellingham, of course.
I see some serious discussions about parenting coming.

In your last chapter you referred to Louisa witnessing the "accident" unfold. As the grocery cart careened and glass jars were broken, my heart was in my mouth fully expecting the esteemed surgical consultant to fall onto the broken glass. With his hands badly cut, he could not continue the redemption of his surgical career, allowing him to return to Portwenn with Louisa. Instead you went with the other sort of accident: an unfortunate incident unexpectedly and unintentionally resulting in serious damage. So was the "accident" Martin Ellingham revealing his true self? The self Louisa thought - and perhaps Martin as well - had finally been contained by their love for each other? Oh, yes, and the other thing I would like to say: What a dick!

Portraying the comfortable state of their relationship before the crisis was excellent. I looked forward to today and then before reading I wasn't sure. But if they are to arrive on the other side intact this all has to be gone through. And there is no certainty, is there. Thank you for taking your time with this. Very good.

The incident at the grocery store is going to be all over the Liverpool mummy blogs. If Martin fears Louisa's wrath, wait 'til those mums skewer him on line

Oh no, the ogre emerges! Not gone and not forgotten. Louisa, of course, must intervene. Not a good thing for Martin's sake or hers...

I think if I was the mother, I'd be getting out of there as fast as possible too. Great chapter.
