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!

ITV Press Pack

The ITV Press Pack for Series 5 has materialised! I've not read it (how long will that self control last?), but apparently it is laden with spoilers. In the next few days, I'll post the Series 5 Episode Guide. You have been warned though - SPOILERS!

Tipster: Lambs


  1. I did not waste a moment googlin' that press pack...How fortunate that I have only recently purchased and watched through series four...only several weeks to go...

  2. Many thanks from an American who doesn't know when season 5 might broadcast here.

  3. if you are savvy enough there are ways to get it earlier :) You can imagine that a person with that knowledge would be able to score some major points with his wife for getting it sooner rather than later.

  4. Yes, it's not too hard to find! There is a publication embargo on it until the 31st August, so when that date rolls around, it'll be even easier to find...right here! :-)

  5. It wasn't hard to find - and I'm a novice. But don't do it! Sorry I did.
