Beginning tomorrow on a number of public television stations across the U.S., a new Doc Martin behind-the-scenes special will begin airing throughout December.
DOC MARTIN: REVEALED features behind-the-scenes footage from the newest Doc Martin series (Season 6) shot on location in Port Isaac, Cornwall, England. Fans of Doc Martin will get inside access to the actors and crew as they film sequences on the balcony at Large’s Restaurant and in the nearby pub that doubles for the Crab & Lobster. Instrumental in the making of the special by lending their support and talents were Simon the head audio tech along with Ian MacNeice and Joe Absolom (Bert and Al Large). Both actors recently paid a visit to the American Public Television Fall Marketplace in Boston earlier this month to meet public television programmers from around the U.S. and talk up the special and upcoming new series. I know, it’s the sacrifices we must make on your behalf…
Regular Tellyspotting readers may remember a late Spring, early Summer trip to Port Isaac by public television colleagues David Rubinsohn and Eric Luskin as they produced the upcoming Doc Martin: Revealed special. David recounted his trip and told of his hard-working efforts on the behalf of Doc Martin fans everywhere forcing himself to find the only pub in Port Isaac to ‘get acclimated to the local culture’.
Series 6 of everyone’s favorite curmudgeonly doctor begins this February on your local public television station. If you’re in the North Texas area, KERA Channel 13 will premiere Doc Martin: Revealed on Saturday, December 14 at 7:00pm. Doc Martin series 6 will premiere Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 7:00pm. Cheers!
