The Bafta-winning actor, who plays the cantankerous GP in the ITV show, doesn't like seeing himself on the small screen.
He said: "I don't like watching myself but I put myself through it, I think it's only fair if I ask other people (to watch) .. if there's a bit with a stunt or medical procedures, I like watching that."

The award-winning actor, who plays the title role in the ITV drama, said the fifth series is being written, but the sixth season has not yet been confirmed.

"There was talk of it a few years ago but Caroline wasn't keen and it'd be nonsense to do it without everyone - I thought it would have been fun the last time," he said.
The actor added: "I think it might be a bit seedy, bit worrying when you get too old to play it like that. I don't know, maybe one day [we'll reunite on screen]."
Martin still stays in contact with former castmates Neil and Caroline.
"Yes, we still keep in touch. In fact, I just texted ...Read more
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...moreless
