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!

MadMother's Port Isaac Diary...Part Two...

Monday 11th April

They are filming today. Together with mini-MM's rush down to harbour. Film crew are setting up and, joy of joys, Martin Clunes is there. Pluck up courage and accost him. Ask to take photo of him and mini-MM's. MC far too kind to say no to children (even teenagers), so get photo. My request opens floodgates and MC is mobbed with requests for pics - oops. Fade to discreet distance and try to take more pictures but other people keep getting in the way. One woman asks MC for a hug and gets one - brazen hussy! Why didn't I think of that? Mini-MM's notice speculative look in my eyes and threaten to never leave home if I don't behave so forced to abandon thought of hussy-like behaviour.

Attempts to take perfect picture of MC foiled by rehearsal. Find out from crew that no other cast members except John Marquez are expected and, very bad news, no further filming in Port Isaac until Thursday at the earliest!

Freezing cold wind forces retreat in search of hot food and drink.

Return after lunch and take more pics of MC along with an assortment of random strangers. John Marquez arrives in his police uniform. Much more attractive in person. Take a couple of pics and get my pic taken with him. See stunt. Temperature plummets and mini-MM's plead starvation. Send them to chip shop, but reluctantly admit defeat and head back to cottage.
