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!

  1. WONDERFUL !! I CAN'T WAIT....only hope it starts in the US on the same day. Thanks for the cute countdown !!

  2. Hi!
    Will there be a Series 6--or is it too early to ask? I'm in Canada (Pacific Coast) and wonder if anyone can tell me when the current series will be broadcast here.

  3. Series 5 is a complete success, did not expect anything but perfection from the producers and Martin Clunes and series 5 delivered!!!

    I'm over the moon to hear that there will be a series 6- there is a God! and I plan to visit Port Isaac during the filming!!!
