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!

Just What the Doc Ordered...

WANT to cast a comedy drama or a sitcom? Then go no further than Martin Clunes, our foremost character actor. Not that he is particularly looking for other projects, mind.

In his year off from Doc Martin he is doing a documentary on Madagascar and a film for the Born Free Foundation. After his series about dogs and horses, Clunes is never far from the animal kingdom but this week Cornwall is on his mind with the release of the latest DVD of the universally loved Doc Martin. We talk about “the baby”.

  1. I was attending a holiday get together last December, when two older ladies asked if I watched Doc Martin. I had never heard of it and they went on about how they watch it every week and how different it was and the beautiful little town where it was filmed.
    I caught a re-run that weekend and got hooked. I started watching every week and then told my sister who now watches every episode with her husband(they gave up N.C.I.S) to see Doc Martin!
    It is addictive and I'm glad I found out about it-can't wait for the next series. Love Martin Clunes and the cast is great!
