Loved you show on the Mantias. I watch you on Doc Martin 2x a week on PBS. Never get tired after all these years. Love seeing the other, more tender side of you though and your love for animals, especially the "kisses".

Sheila ParkesOct 29, 2013

I am just loving the "other" programmes which Martin is making - horses, dogs and now very much love the way he has done the Islands around the UK. I am hoping that the Isle of Wight will be included as I was born there, but now having lived in 10 different places of the UK, now have and intend to stay in Dorset until my time comes to go to my heavenly home! Thank you so much Martin for all the pleasure given - such a marvellous gift you have. Sheila Parkes, aged 75yrs

Haven't been watching that long but am so hooked on this hilariously funny show.Doc Martin and all the other castmembers are hysterical!

dcDec 25, 2012

that is philippa in the photo on the right.
She is on the KCET "behind the scenes" of series 5 with her husband Martin Clunes. They are not sitting together but she has on a red top. Check it out. There are not many photos of her but if you read the 12/12/12 article in the Mirror, called "Iam to odd looking to play a romatic lead" you will see a photo of Martin and his wife Philippa.
He looks great and she looks just like she does on the photo above only a little older. That is her so I do not know the last time you saw her, but that is his lovely wife.

That is not a picture of Philippa Braithwaite! She doesn't look anything like that!

Doc Martin ...I could just eat him with a spoon.

margery taylorFeb 4, 2011

My husband and I love the "Doc Martin" series and have seen them all twice! Will there be a 5th series?

AmySep 5, 2010

another year has past, and I can`t wait for series 5 and beyond! Hope to see the whole cast, dog and all, simply brilliant!

Filming for the next series (4)will commence in about a month and will air in the UK sometime this coming fall. Check for updates. Go to for a fan club discussion group.

I`m in Victoria, B.C. Canada. Just recently discovered Doc Martin and now understand it is unlikely there will be more episodes. Is this correct? Tell me it is not so!!! Anna Petrie

Doc Martin is Brilliant, as Kipper would say.
