Martin, Louisa, Aunt Ruth, PC Penhale, Bert and Al Large, and all your favourite Port Wenn residents were all back by popular demand for a much-anticipated encore presentation of Doc Martin – Series 5 last year! We hope you enjoyed our encore presentation of delightfully eccentric, heartwarming and chuckle-inducing gem.
Watch for more info on when you’ll be able to watch the curmudgeonly but brilliantly loveable Doc Martin again on VisionTV soon. Season 6 is on the way in 2014!
More than 8 million people watched Martin Clunes‘ return as the socially inept and not entirely likeable Doc Martin for its fifth season on September 12, 2011 in the UK. The second episode jumped to over 9 million.
The fifth season brings more trials for Martin and Louisa – as new parents and also as a couple. The series also has plenty of challenges for our old favourites: Bert is close to bankruptcy and has to borrow money from a loan shark; Al embarks on new challenges when he takes over the running of Ruth’s farm; and Penhale is surprised by the return of his ex-wife.
There are many questions that need to be answered in Season Five for both Martin and Louisa: how will they cope as working parents; can they bridge the gaps in their relationship and stay together as a family unit; and most pressing of all, when will they agree on what to call their son?
