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!

  1. I am in deep mourning. I have watched series 1 thru 4 five times. I am waiting series five to arrive in the U.S. I live in Utah and when will series five be available on PBS here.
    What make Doc Martin so interesting is that he is a typical bipolar, borderline person. His walk is rigid,his talk is rigid, and he is funnier than hell. What a gift he is! Hurry up and let me know. I am totally addicted to this show.

  2. Dear Anonymous, I'm in central Canada and probably in your time zone. It's driving me crazy too, I'm not sure if I've missed an episode. TV keeps saying a new show is on tomorrow, (Jan. 25) but my guide doesn't say anything about it being Episode 1, Series 5. You aren't alone!

  3. Just finished Season 5 here in the U.S. Love you Doc Martin! Wonderful, Martin Clunes! Thanks for the series. Just keep it going... it doesn't need to get any more exciting. It's perfect. Can't wait for your to start up again in 2012. ~Susan
