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.

Penhale has a Police Open day, but the only genuine visitor he has is an angry farmer.

James has started biting, not only Louisa, but also his classmates.

Morwenna is taking Al away to a glamping site, and Emily is helping out at the surgery.
