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 Six on YouTube...

Episode Six - Don't let go.

Be sure to check out all the other great Doc Martin videos on MClunesfan123's YouTube Channel.


  1. And now the cracks really begin to show between them about baby James, jobs, house work, and ARE THEY REALLY A COUPLE?

  2. So sad about the development in this episode. Why can't they just go easy on each other? Just wouldn't make for good tv, I guess. She expects the WORST of him and he expects the LEAST from her. Time for therapy for the two of them? That could be entertaining.

  3. Martin needs a dose of Joan's tough love right about now. My heart ached at the end of ep 6..

  4. Oh please, oh please don't let them break apart! My heart is aching for them both. They have to get back together...they just have to...

  5. They can't break up, it would end the series. But it will be interesting to see how the writers extricate M&L from the corner Martin's limitations have painted them into.
