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!

Something wicked this way comes...

Our local Port Isaac man in the know, reports that the word on the street is the Central Garage on New Road, Port Isaac is shortly to undergo a makeover, turning it into a funeral parlour for filming purposes.

Could this development have anything to do with Aunty Joan not returning? Or perhaps we shouldn't get carried away... Maybe it's just the Lexus being laid to rest... Those country roads can be hell on the shockies (is that a car part?)...

  1. your man in the know is slow off the mark, they were filming at the garage, with it acting as a funeral parlour last Thurs, prior to the piccies taken above. I know, as I was staying at the Bay Hotel which is next door!!
