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!

Desert Island Discs....

Kirsty Young's castaway is the actor Martin Clunes.

He's graduated from being one of the "Men Behaving Badly" to a stint at The National theatre and a second career as an enthusiastic documentary presenter. It's not a career he takes too seriously though, he says: "Of course it takes some work, and there is a skill and a craft to it, but we are all monkeys in the zoo - you can go and look at the Judi Dench monkey or you can look at the Martin Clunes monkey or the Ricky Gervais monkey if you want a bit of this or a bit of that and people stroll past us and dwell or not."

Producer: Leanne Buckle.


Tipster: Lambs
