The doll doctor: repairing memories

From This Way Up, 12:25 pm on 5 November 2016

Retired aircraft engineer Keith Martin and his wife Faith are doll doctors, who restore sagging, chewed, chopped or dropped dolls to better health.

Over the years, they've saved countless tears and 10,000 dolls of all shapes and sizes.

With 40 years' experience and some serious skills from his time as an aircraft engineer, no case is to hopeless for Ken and his wife Faith, who is pretty handy with a needle, too.

And they certainly doesn't discriminate either – Ken, Action Man and even teddy bears are all welcome for treatment at his Doll Hospital

"You are restoring part of their childhood and so we try really hard to get it back to the way it was" - Faith Martin.
