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!

The written word...DEFINITE SPOILERS!!

Some avid adventurers recently stopped off in Port Isaac and recorded their visit HERE.

This is what they wrote:

Being so close by we had a day out visiting Port Isaac, famous for being the setting for Doc Martin and the Poldark series amongst others. It is a tiny but charming place with tight streets, quaint shops and tea rooms along with the craggy tiny harbour. I love these unspoilt harbours that have not changed over the centuries and there is the scent of an age gone by still lingering. The scent of a time when wine was sipped at carved oak tables from golden goblets and the scent of a time of honour and valour, a scent of a time of smugglers and lance and sword, which I suppose is why series like Poldark were set here.

We were fortunate to find that they were filming Doc Martin while we were there and it was fascinating to watch the proceedings as Caroline Catz (Louisa) and baby, the famous dog and of course Martin Clunes, acted out their parts. Martin Clunes kindly posed for a photograph and a brief chat between shoots with nothing being too much trouble and it really topped a lovely day.

Some photos accompanied the blog entry, including a wee little peak at a script page. Be warned, however, that you should not click on the picture to enlarge it if you wish to remain spoiler-free-ish!
