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...

      I cannot get enough of this show. Just finished Season 6 and sobbed thru the last episode. BBC definitely has much better entertainment than the US. Truly overjoyed to find that there is a Season 7. The acting is on point and the location is enchanting.
    • Season 8 Please!

      What makes Doc Martin so good? The setting is beautiful and uplifting, visually it's like going on holiday every episode. The recurring characters are quirky and delightful and make us laugh and feel better about our own lives in the process. Although it was wonderful to have Sigourney Weaver guest star and much was made of her appearance, no infusion of "Hollywood A listers" is needed. In any case I consider the entire cast to be "A listers".



      Congratulations to Martin Clunes for being awarded an OBE! He is simply brilliant as Doc Martin. The producers, writers and every member of cast and crew deserve to be recognized as well. The writing is outstanding and Caroline Catz and Martin Clunes create a golden alchemy which transcends the written page. I don't believe Caroline Catz is given enough credit for her contribution to the show. At its heart Doc Martin is a love story.



      Doc Martin provides us all with a priceless gift, the ability to laugh and to feel better about our own struggles and relationships. I am really hoping the writers can see a way to move the story forward with Season 8. Please!

    • Doc Martin needs an injection

      3.0
      Season 7 of Doc Martin is terrible. There is no sexual tension between Louisa and Martin. Each episode has a vague storyline, and nothing seems to be coming together. Every Monday, I come home from work anxious to watch the show, and each week the episodes are worse than the last. There was so much that could have been written this final season. It could have been in the future, so the audience would get a glimpse of James as a teenager. It's very disappointing.moreless
    • Doc Martin has been going downhill

      4.0
      This was a great show up to season five. I think the shows producers catered too much to the female fans and it's lost it's quirky village with medical mysterys and interesting villagers and situations and even a Doc that had a small sense of show has painted it's self into a corner with the romantic or lack of it between Louisa and writing feels to be on automatic pilot now,and formulated. I also should add the Doc is looking too old now and even though season 7 ratings may be up it would be a bad idea to re-new it.moreless
    • What a character

      9.0
      In South Africa we have just got the latest Doc Martin series and what a delight it has turned out to be. Doc Martin is an enigmatic character whose complete lack of bedside manner is strangely part of his charm. A fantastic cast and magnificent scenery makes this TV not to be missed.
