If you like this show, I created it. If you don’t, it wasn’t me, guv.
I worked on the first two series of Doc Martin for Buffalo Pictures and ITV. It was and remains a smash hit. I’m so pleased to see that the show thrives now in my absence. It’s in its sixth year and plays around the world.
Also delightful is that it is being remade in foreign versions – German, Spanish and French.
Martin Clunes is just fantastic as the grumpy doc, and I hope he never tires of berating the good people of Portwenn.
UPDATE May 2013:
Doc Martin season 6 is shooting now. I don’t know ANYTHING about the stories, sorry! But THANK YOU for the wonderful messages from Doc fans around the world. It really is uplifting to hear your enthusiasm for the show.
PS – for a note on character names, including the Doc’s surname, see The Naming of Parts.
