  • News

Doc MartinFilming begins in Cornwall this week on the 10th and final series of Doc Martin. 

Martin Clunes reprises his role of the eponymous, irascible GP in the five-month shoot, which takes place in and around Port Isaac – a pretty fishing village that ‘plays’ the fictional setting of Portwenn. 

Made by Buffalo Pictures and produced by company founder Philippa Braithwaite, the ITV drama was created by Dominic Minghella, based on the character of Dr Martin Bamford who appeared in the 2000 comedy feature Saving Grace.

The show first aired in September 2004; soon after, the production schedule saw a new series filming every other year.  

Doc Martin has been adapted around the world, with versions produced in France, Spain, Greece, Netherlands, Russia, Czech Republic and Germany.
