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!

"I hated Martin as Doc Martin"... (Possible Spoilers)

Survivors star Julie Graham tells us about joining the cast of ITV1's Doc Martin (Sunday) and having to do kissing scenes with one of her best mates!

You play PC Joe Penhale’s ex-wife, Maggie. Why does she turn up in the village?

"Although Maggie is divorced from Joe, she’s had some sort of trauma and is suffering from amnesia so she thinks they’re still married. She thinks it’s April 2008."

Joe is pleased to see her. Is he hoping they’ll get back together?
"I don’t think he ever wanted to split up in the first place so he sort of goes along with it in a sneaky way, pretending they’re still married. It’s actually a very moving storyline. Joe is a lovely character and very funny. I know John Marquez, who plays him, really well. His daughter is actually my goddaughter."
