Show Summary

Martin Clunes stars in comedy-drama Doc Martin, as a doctor whose truculence and tactless manner causes mayhem in a small Cornish community. Martin plays surgeon Martin Ellingham, whose glittering career comes crashing down around him when he develops a phobia which prevents him conducting operations. He makes a life changing decision to retrain as a GP, and applies for a vacant post in the sleepy Cornish hamlet of Portwenn, where he spent childhood holidays. If the patients are expecting tea and sympathy from their curmudgeonly GP they are going to be disappointed. Despite his surgical brilliance, he has no personal skills, and his understanding of humans is practically non existent. Martin is joined by a prestigious cast which includes Eileen Atkins as his Aunt Ruth. Caroline Catz stars as primary school headmistress Louisa Glasson, who Martin is attracted to - but his hopelessness with people ensures that the pat to true love will not be smooth...

  • Every Character is Fantastic!!!

    I missed the first time this series was ran but I don't miss a night of it now since I started to watch it. I'm always wondering what Docs going to get himself into. His reactions to different situations he finds himself in are hilarious. His expressions priceless. This is one of those series you can't get enough of and I'm sure I will watch the reruns again and again. Love It!!!moreless
  • Pls continue this series!

    We just got Netflix this year and Doc Martin here (here in US) was most highly recommended by our everyone! -- it is a fantastic, good clean show.. We love the quaint village and people, and music. We too sincerely wish the US had shows like this. Please, please continue this series! We have been so impressed by British sitcoms that we, along with many here in, have stopped watching the US sitcoms altogether. I love the USA, but you all have us beat hands-down in Television entertainment. As word continues to spread and more folks get Netflix or some other access to British TV shows, you will continue to receive these rave reviews!moreless

    my family loves the show Doc Martin being from the United States is one of the best shows on television and we very much appreciate it because its not trashy by any means. Just wish we could watch past seasons since we found this show about 2 months ago. I wish the US would produce shows of this caliber instead of pure trash! Thank you for the entertainment.

    I'm not a critic by any stretch, but I would like the powers that be to know how much my husband and I enjoy watching Doc Martin. I'd not even heard of it until I'd gotten a glowing review from a friend. We hurried home to check it out. Well, it didn't take long for it to become an addiction. We binge-watched all seasons available. Heard that there was indeed going to be a season 7 (or series 7 in brit-talk), but that that may very well be the last. I'm here to ask if the writers/producers/actors are above being bribed. I'd like to strongly encourage them to make this show for as long as they possibly don't care if plots are repeated from time to time. We adore these characters :) Please consider committing to making more of what is one of the best shows on television. Thank you for your time :)moreless
  • Totally bonkers over this show

    As a US fan, I wasn't aware of Doc Martin until about a year ago when I stumbled onto it on PBS when they were showing Series 4. It took 2 or 3 shows before I decided that maybe this was I show I could get interested in so I started making more of an effort to watch it. Well, by the end of Series 4, I went to iTunes and bought Series 1-6 and have watched the all six series at least three times. I have also indexed the show so I know exactly where the Doc and Louisa scenes are and I have watched them more times than I care to admit. I have never been so addicted to a tv show in my entire life and I am 69. Infact, I watch very little tv but this show is addictive. Series 6 was especially frustrating. It was a rough year for Doc. I don't know how I can possibly wait for Series 7 but thank goodness there is going to be a Series 7. Kuddos to the Doc Martin staff and crew--you are all simply amazing!!!!moreless
