Doc Martin

It's hello and goodbye to Britain's favourite curmudgeonly medic Doc Martin played by the inimitable Martin Clunes, who recently returned to our screens for the highly anticipated tenth and final series of the immensely popular, long-running hit drama.

Dr. Martin Ellingham (Clunes - Men Behaving Badly, Warren) is back in eight new episodes of the ratings-winning drama in the charming community of the idyllic hamlet of Portwenn in Cornwall. Following its run on ITV, the wonderful final series of this nationally cherished franchise - which has attracted audiences in excess of 10 million - Doc Martin Series 10 is set for its DVD release on 12 December 2022 from Acorn Media International.

Following his resignation at the end of the previous series - after his medical career was scrutinised by the General Medical Council and the revelation that he has a blood phobia - the grouchy GP is beginning to question whether hanging up his doctor's coat was the right decision...

At home, Martin and his wife Louisa (Caroline Catz - DCI Banks, In Fabric) have welcomed a beautiful baby daughter, Mary Elizabeth, a sister for four-year-old James Henry, so there's plenty more for the family to contend with.

As former teacher, Louisa, pursues an exciting new career as a child counsellor in the old surgery, Martin spends his days taking care of their baby and Buddy, the cheeky dog. Can he settle into his new routine as a house husband, or will he face his fears, pick up his stethoscope, and make a bold return to the career - and the local community - that are so close to his heart?

Returning cast includes Dame Eileen Atkins (The Crown, Robin Hood) as Doc Martin's formidable Aunt Ruth, Ian McNeice (Rome, Dune) as Bert Large, with Joe Absolom (Eastenders, Vincent) as his son Al, Jessica Ransom (Horrible Histories, The Armstrong and Miller Show) plays receptionist Morwenna Newcross, Joe Marquez (EastEnders, Britannia) as PC Joe Penhale, and Selina Cadell (The Lady in the Van, Wild Child) as pharmacist Mrs Tishell.

They are joined by a roster of special guest stars: Fay Ripley (Cold Feet, Monday, Monday), David Hayman (The Nest, The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas), Ben Miller (Bridgerton, Paddington 2), Lesley Nicol (Downton Abbey, East is East), Hermione Norris (Spooks, Cold Feet), Kenneth Cranham (Scarborough, Layer Cake) and Rupert Graves (Sherlock, Emma).

Book a much-needed appointment for the final series of Doc Martin and settle in for a dose of laughter and heart-warming storylines - on doctor's orders.
