So, does Doc Martin have Asperger's Syndrome?

I don't know how many people here watch this excellent British television series. It's about a brilliant London surgeon who moves to a small village in Cornwall to become a GP. Trouble is, he sucks at bedside manner, as he has no social skills whatsoever.

As I watch the series, and I think I've now seen all the episodes, it seems like they're leading up to this conclusion. At first I thought he was just a self-important dick who had never had to deal with people much, but the episode I watched last night seemed to say otherwise. The teacher Louisa was scolding him to tell him to develop a bedside manner or social ability, and he plainly told her, "Most of the time I don't even know what you're talking about."

So what do you think? They're filming the next series even now.
