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!

Episode Eight Take Two...

Some people appear to be having problems with the link posted below. You will need to hit pause and allow the episode to buffer (load) for a while before watching it, otherwise you will get some stopping and starting.

Alternatively, try this link:

Or this one:

Be on the look out for pop up ads on new windows or tabs (you may like to close them straight away).

Good luck!


  1. That Videozer link worked best for me.

    The other ones only downloaded about half the programme and quit.

  2. Thanks for your help but....these links are like a tease....the episode starts to play but at some point they just stop!
    Hmm...maybe it has to do with being in the States.

  3. Thank you for the link. I waited all day to view ep 8. It was worth the wait. I enjoyed every moment, the ending was perfect.

  4. Both links work!!!! YAY!!!!

    Fantastic, bloody brilliant, and marvelous! I am extremely happy with this episode.


  5. Thank you for your wonderful blog. It is so very nicely done, and you have been so considerate of all us addicts. Thank you, thank you, thank you for season five. I hope you will keep the blog and keep us informed of any new developments for (fingers crossed) season six. Thank you again. Very nice work.

  6. The first link worked for me. Thank you a million times over.

  8. I so so appreciate the blog! I hope you keep it up and let us know anything and everything about a possible Series 6. I'll be checking!

  9. I discovered your blog this summer when searching for information about DM series 5. It has been such fun to see if there was something new each morning. I so appreciate your efforts.

  10. Blessings to you for posting these episodes for us in the states! We love Doc Martin and would DIE if we had to wait till next April to see Series 5. Here's hoping there's a 6th. Thanks to all of you in the UK for sharing.
