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...

  • Bought the series,waiting for more

    When we started watching Doc Martin on PBS earlier last year we couldn't get enough. So we bought season 1-5 from Amazon and took our time watching them, like savoring our favorite wine. It was a treat indeed. We sipped it very slowly, that's how wonderful this program is. Then we saw that season 6 was available so we rushed to Amazon to get it as well. Little did we know that it was about to come on PBS again. Too late we already own it. So we recorded it anyway. Can't be too careful with missing a Doc Martin episode. Would love to see the community where it is shot some time. Where is season 7?

  • Martin, a man I admire.

    I am in the December of my life. I just found Doc Martin/Martin Clunes recently. I have done some research on Martin. He is a wonderful, kind, person (regardless of his irascible person on Doc Martin). What a guy! I wish so many people could be like him. My wish is that I could meet him and get a hug before my life's end. I will not make it to PI this year, but I am hoping to make ti to Buckham Fair.moreless

    We're new to this series and absolutely love it! The stories and characters are very entertaining and fun to watch. Doc Martin is absolutely adorable - a character you can really feel for. Sometimes I wish someone would bap Louisa on the forehead, but we have hope she'll figure out how help him express his heart. Can't wait for the new season. Glad we didn't watch it until now - the drought between the last season and the new one would have killed us! Ha!moreless

    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

    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
