Not quite the moment Doc Martin fans have been waiting for but it’s about as close as we can get until the premiere dates are set for the return of the curmudgeonly GP with a phobia for blood. While nothing has been announced, UK views can look for an early Autumn return of the brilliant series on ITV1 with a potential early 2014 broadcast on public television stations in the States.
For those that have faithfully followed the relationship ups and downs of Dr. Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes) and Louisa Glasson (Caroline Catz), you know that when we last visited Portwenn, 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 second marriage proposal from the Doc to Louisa.
Doc Martin 6 trailer…can you say OMG!?
As series 6 begins, wedding bells are once again ringing and Portwenn is buzzing with arrangements for the wedding of the Doc and Louisa. However, if we’ve learned anything from five series and 39 episodes, it’s that nothing is easy when is comes to the Doc and Louisa. The question that will be answered over the eight new episodes that will comprise the new series is will they finally tie the knot, or will the villagers have to put the confetti back in the box one more time?
Produced by Buffalo Pictures and, once again, set in the idyllic hamlet of Portwenn, Doc Martin 6 will see all the regular members of the cast return, including Martin Clunes as Doctor Martin Ellingham, the grumpiest man in a white coat this side of Dr. Geregory House and Caroline Catz, who plays Doc Martin’s long-suffering love interest and local school headmistress, Louisa Glasson.
No matter which side of the pond you are on, can you possibly put into words what it means to have the Doc back?
