Series overview

Martin Clunes plays the nation’s favourite grumpy medic, Doc Martin.

He stars as Dr. Martin Ellingham, the GP with a brusque bedside manner and a phobia of blood, in the hugely successful drama produced by Buffalo Pictures, and set in the idyllic hamlet of Portwenn in Cornwall.

Picturesque Port Isaac provides the beautiful backdrop for the popular series, with all regular members of the cast reprising their roles.

Episode 1

Martin and Louisa are living together again in the surgery. Portwenn is abuzz with activity for the preparation of a wedding between Janice and Penhale, but he has a medical issue which could prevent him from making it down the aisle. Meanwhile, Al is struggling with the demands of being best man, especially when Bert’s marketing antics means there is only ‘large whisky’ at the pre-wedding party.
