Wedding bells are ringing in Portwenn as Martin Clunes returns to Cornwall to play the nation’s favourite grumpy medic in a brand new series of Doc Martin for ITV.
Martin Clunes reprises his role as Dr. Martin Ellingham, the GP with a brusque bedside manner and a phobia of blood, in eight new episodes of the enormously successful drama produced by Buffalo Pictures and set in the idyllic hamlet of Portwenn.
All the regular members of the cast return for this popular series, filmed in the picturesque North Cornwall village of Port Isaac.
Caroline Catz plays Doc Martin’s long-suffering love interest and local school headmistress, Louisa Glasson. At the end of the last series the couple’s baby boy James was kidnapped by well-meaning but deranged pharmacist Mrs Tishell. The nightmare brought them closer together and prompted a marriage proposal from the Doc to Louisa, for a second time.
