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!

Listen up people...

The press promotions for Series 5 are finally beginning to appear! Huzzah! Below is a link to an audio conversation on NPR:

Tipster: lost-the-plot


  1. I'm the lucky poetry lady whose call was put in to Mr. Clunes. I met him this spring in Port Isaac while on a birthday wish come true holiday to experience the filming of season 5. That was an amazing adventure because I met all the stars of the show and then to talk to him again by phone on NPR was just magical. He was amused by the contact and I was thrilled to find out he enjoyed my poetry.

  2. I "just" turned off my radio last Friday while at work when this aired, so had to catch it tonight on the Internet.

    Thanks for the link!
