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...

  • Wonderful British Understatement

    What I like most about this show is that it's hard to say what it is I like. The setting, the characters, and the music come together for the whole. The acting is what acting should be - you're not even aware there is acting, you just feel like the people are real. Mostly I guess it's the whole understated quality of the show ... you're not clobbered over the head with hilariously zany comedy, pulse-pounding action, or overstimulating dramatic turns ... it has a kind a pastoral or peaceful quality to it punctuated with just the right bits of quirky plot and character development to keep it interesting. The whole ambiance is probably what it boils down to most ... a beautiful setting populated with characters you come to really like.moreless

  • Doc needs a Doc (shrink)!

    1.0
    Loved the early Doc him now. No one can possibly be as thick as the writers have made him this season. His wife and child would soften any man's heart and lead to a dawning of heart, humor, and humanity.



    They have made a sympathetic character that we had high hopes for into an obnoxious boor. Yuk!

  • Doc Martin Season 5 & 6

    1.0
    I loved watching Season 1-4 but Seasons 5 & 6 are very disappointing no magic and charm like in Seasons 1-4. Also, in Port Wenn the real name Port Isaac, they have a local sea chanty group called the Fisherman's Friends that play on the Platt every Friday night, they are big part of this village and quite charming. I don't understand why they are not a part of the show in any way. I hope Season 7 they bring back the magic and charm. I do miss Pauline and Auntie Joan, wish they were still on the show.moreless
  • DISAPPOINTING SEASON 6

    1.0
    I cannot express how disappointed I am with Doc Martin's seasons 5 and 6. I started watching the first season about two months ago and (Feb. 2014) and I thought that it was the best show I had ever watched. It was fun, had nice plots and very interesting characters. Doc Martin was cold and had no social skills whatsoever, but at the same time, he was very charming in his own way. The romance between him and Louisa was so much fun to watch! Each episode made me look forward to their next encounter again. On the last episode of season 4, I was beside myself by the nice way it ended. I kept imagining them living together afterwards in a funny, maybe awkward, but NICE way with the baby. Instead, their relationship became sad and dysfunctional, like in "drama" movies! I know that this could happen in reality, but this is entertainment and could have continued being light and funny as it started.

    I just finish watching the last episode of season 6 and became totally upset. I hope that season 7 will make up for the two previous ones and go back to being charming, fun and "romantic", like the beginning!

    I wish that the creators and producers of the show would read my review. There is always hope!
