Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense: A band at the peak of their powers. A beautifully staged, carefully choreographed performance. The one with the boom box and Psycho Killer at the start. The Talking Heads one by one joining front man David Byrne on stage. The one where he dances with a lampshade. The one directed by the big name Hollywood director. The one with the big suit at the end.

No wonder Stop Making Sense is rightfully acknowledged as being the best concert film and the best music film ever and is still, more than 30 years after its original release, the yardstick by which all other music films are measured by...

And now, Stop Making Sense is set to arrive on Blu-ray and DVD in a definitive, restored edition - with more than 60,000 instances of dirt and scratches removed - from Second Sight on 16 November 2015.

Set in the idyllic, sleepy hamlet of Portwenn in Cornwall, Dr. Martin Ellingham (Clunes - Men Behaving Badly), the town's sole GP with a brusque bedside manner and a phobia of blood, returns for eight new episodes of the ratings winning drama, as he continues to challenge the community, his wife and even Buddy, a stray dog, who cannot resist his fervent rebuffs.

Having separated for a breather in Spain visiting her mother, Louisa (Caroline Catz - DCI Banks) has returned, but not into the arms of Doc Martin. Insisting on a break while they try and sort out their differences, Louisa moves into the family home and Martin moves out. In an effort to win her back, he agrees to undertake couples therapy with Dr Rachel Timoney (Emily Bevan - A Casual Vacancy).
