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!

TV Times Magazine...

Here's a little piece taken from TV Times magazine...

After taking a two year break from playing Cornwall's grumpiest GP, Martin Clunes returns as Dr Martin Ellingham alongside Caroline Catz as his on-off love interest, headmistress, Louisa. Martin explains:"The doc is trapped in Portwenn with a baby and Louisa and they have to negotiate their way through their conflicting interests. They find it so hard to agree but people seem to enjoy watching that!

  1. Baby Ellingham sits perfectly in MC hands. Have to wonder how the Doc will feel if Baby pukes on his Daddy.

  2. I think that's a smile - well as near to a smile as the Doc gets!

  3. I think he will fall all over this child and his mother. Totally in love with both.
