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!

Master Clunes on Daybreak...

With thanks to: conniej


  1. I'm in love with the Doc.

  2. Greetings from Los Angeles

    Thank you for keeping up this fantastic blog. Love seeing MC in these updates.

    Series 5 is now airing on U.S. TV. It's great to be able to see it again and record it.

  3. I was hooked after finding this show on IPTV.I only saw the last half of the show,but found it on Netflix and watched all 31 episodes.I'm glad I'll soon be able to see Series 5. The only show in years to keep me completely absorbed and wanting more! Great show!

  4. We love you in America!! We are trying to get our hands on all of Martin's amazing work. Thank goodness for our dear friends ind the UK....for the Men Behaving Badly DVD's. Found many of his interviews and found him to be a wonderful man as well! Good husband, father and animal lover. Kudos to you Master Clunes for being someone my children can look up to. Anytime you are in Vegas....We'd love to treat you and your girls to a lovely dinner. :)

  5. Love the show, but sorry I've missed the prevous 3 series. I hope someday to watch them. In the mantime, I've passed my love of the Doc to many firnds, who love him as much as I do.Keep up the good work Doc!

  6. I'm from Silicon Valley and my husband and I love DM, et. al. Good fun, writing is crisp and his tone is unforgiving. Blistering and quaint at the same time.

  7. I am from Virginia in the USA and I have to say I love dr. Martin show and also William and Mary.
    Cant wait to see the next season. And god bless Martin for helping raise money for the child and giving the suit, most wouldn't of had as big of heart as Martin did.

  8. I have become a huge fan of the show. I'm from Texas and now have another reason to want to visit England someday, to see Port Issac!
