That grumpy bugger - Doc Martin - is back for a fifth series in 2011. The story picks up after the birth of Martin and Louisa's son. Will Martin return to his post as Portwenn's GP? Will fatherhood help the Doc to mellow? Will he and Louisa play happy families? Of course not! The road to happiness will no doubt be fraught with an array of delightfully entertaining challenges.

The Doc Martin Series 5 Blog follows the progress of Series 5 from filming to post-episode dissection, and everything in between. It will endeavour to keep you up-to-date with all that's happening in and around Portwenn.

Your contributions to the site are welcomed, encouraged and essential. If you have information, tips, photos, a story to tell or a question to ask, don't hesitate to shoot me off an email, or post a comment. The Doc is in!

Tuesday 5th April 2011 - Port Isaac

A final visit of the day to Port Isaac. What seemed like a quiet but picturesque fishing port suddenly came to life as I turned a corner and found a TV production in full swing. I had to ask, and was told "Doc Martin" which I have never seen, and sounds as if it ought to be set in Northampton. However a quick Wikipedia search on my phone filled in the background. The scene in question appeared to be set in a building masquerading as the pharmacy, and after a short while, Martin Clunes emerged between takes to sign a few autographs. Meanwhile, at the nearby lifeboat station and beach, the Cornish male voice singers "Fisherman's Friends" ( were setting up, presumably to sing later as part of the TV filming. An interesting diversion anyway, and I suppose I'll have to watch now!
