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!

Cornish medical drama Doc Martin delivered the goods for ITV1 last night as the first episode of series five attracted a very healthy average audience of 8.4 million to the channel between 9pm and 10pm, a 32.4 per cent share of all viewers watching TV at the time.

A further 300,000 viewers chose to enjoy the beautifully shot Martin Clunes vehicle on ITV1 HD.

In the same slot last week, Coronation Street could only manage 7.8 million (a 30 per cent share) from 9pm to 9:30pm, and the Red or Black? results show delivered 5.1 million (a 20.2 per cent share) between 9:30pm and 10pm on ITV1.
