I have mentioned here before that around the first of this year I got a bit obsessed with the British comedy/drama TV show Doc Martin. I have to admit that I have watched most of the episodes at least twice and a couple even more than that. I have recently decided that things have gone a little too far when I started thinking that people in my life look like the characters on the show.
First was my hairdresser who looked to me just like Louisa, the doc's love interest on the show.
Louisa played by Caroline Catz
Yesterday there was a woman on the machine next to me at the gym who looked so much like the doc's Aunt Ruth that I expected her to have a British accent.
Ruth played by Eileen Atkins
Last week at the dog park there was a man who was a doppelganger for Al Large, the shows hapless plumber/restaurateur. He was even wearing a knit cap.
Al played by Ian McNeice
It started getting a little scary when I decided that I looked a bit like the doc's mother, Margaret. She is a very evil mother.

So far I haven't run into anyone that looks like Doc Martin so maybe I'm not too far gone.

In any case, I think it is definitely time for me to find a new favorite show before I go completely Bodmin (a phrase from the show meaning being a bit crazy or a bit of an oddball).
Any suggestions for a new favorite show?
