Here’s all you need to know about Doc Martin’s last outing!

When does Doc Martin start?

The new series of Doc Martin is currently airing on ITV on Wednesday nights at 9PM. The last episode of the final series airs on 25 October. The final series has eight episodes.

A teaser for the last series shares: “At the end of the last series the Doc decided, after having his medical career scrutinised by the General Medical Council because of his blood phobia, that he would resign from being Portwenn’s GP.

“This final series sees the Doc making efforts to overcome his phobia, and beginning to question whether he made the right decision about resigning. He and Louisa have also welcomed a baby daughter, Mary Elizabeth, a sister for four-year-old James Henry.

“With Louisa pursuing her new career as a child counsellor in his old surgery, the Doc is left literally holding the baby, and indulging his hobby of repairing clocks on the kitchen table. But does he really want his old job back?”

Alongside Martin Clunes in the title role, the cast will see Caroline Catz as Doc Martin’s wife, Louisa Ellingham and Dame Eileen Atkins as his formidable Aunt Ruth.


They’ll be joined by Ian McNeice as Bert Large, Joe Absolom as Al, John Marquez as PC Joe Penhale, Jessica Ransom as Morwenna Newcross and Selina Cadell as Mrs Tishell.

The series will finish with a one-off Christmas special later this year.
