Doc Martin to make series 6 house call in 2013

Bad news for patients, but good news for fans of Dr. Martin Ellingham came Monday with the announcement by ITV that the Martin Clunes series, Doc Martin, has been renewed for a sixth series comprised of eight episodes. According to the ITV Press Centre, all regular cast members will all but take over the fictional town of Portwenn when filming begins next spring on location in the coastal town of Port Isaac.

For those that remember the ending of series 5, the Doc has, once again, reconciled with his long-time love interest Louisa Glasson (Caroline Catz) after rescuing their son James from pharmacist Mrs. Tishell. Clunes recently mixed happiness with a bit of wondering out loud when thinking of his return to Cornwall to film another series. Clunes gave a few hints as to the direction the next set of programs by saying, “Our challenge this season will be to force Louisa and the doctor to live together with Baby James which as far as I can see has disaster written all over it. And then there’s the dog and Dame Eileen but not necessarily in that order!

Look for Doc Martin 6 in the Fall of 2013 on ITV in the UK and on public television stations nationwide, most likely, in January 2014.

  8. I am addicted to Doc Martin. When I hear the music and see the little boats bobbing up and down in the harbor, I feel content, like when I am with a close friend. When will it be aired again in CA?

  13. I love, love, love this series. Have watched series from day one and it always delivers.
    Martin Clunes is the best!

    Aside….For M. Clunes fans….If you haven’t caught his other PBS series, check out ~William and Mary.~
    It has televised here in the states about a year ago and recently PBS did the re-runs.
    Clunes plays a morticitan and falls in love with a mid-wife with teenage children. The trials and tribulations they go through. Another great cast.
