The Bafta-winning actor, who plays the cantankerous GP in the ITV show, doesn't like seeing himself on the small screen.
He said: "I don't like watching myself but I put myself through it, I think it's only fair if I ask other people (to watch) .. if there's a bit with a stunt or medical procedures, I like watching that."
Martin - who is promoting the DVD release of the fourth series of the drama - said of the stunt scenes: "I'm keen to see how good I am at those, and to check that I did it right. It's a bit like looking at your poo in the morning, it's a morbid fascination with the human conditions."
:: Doc Martin series 4 is available on DVD now.
