Martin to make Tony Fitzjohn film?

The Doc Martin star is keen to do a documentary movie about Tony, who was awarded an OBE in 2006 for his conservation work with wildlife in Africa.

"We're hoping to make a film about a friend of mine in Africa - Tony Fitzjohn - who lived and worked with George Adamson setting lions free in Kenya," he said.

Animal lover Martin, who has made programmes about dogs and horses, hopes to meet some lion cubs.

He added: "Tony is a great mate of mine and a good story, and we wanted to make a film because he's going back to Kora, where George was murdered, and he's going to start releasing lions again, I think. He's got the permission to do that so hopefully, I'll get to be up close and personal with some baby lions."

:: The fourth series of Doc Martin is available now on DVD.

WOW what a story! During the last 24 years since George Adamson death Tony Fitzjohn raised millions using George's name and lots of lion pictures and did nothing to help George's beloved lions. Oh, I forgot, he brought a little cub to Kora in May 2012, hired a young man with a stick to care for him, provided a solar power refrigerator and meat for Mujie until the poor little lion got killed by hyenas in April 2013.
