Doc Martin has been on our screens for almost 15 years, branching out from the UK to the USA, Canada and more.

The British medical comedy-drama stars Martin Clunes as Doc Martin and is set in Portwenn – a fictional seaside village. It’s shot on location in Port Isaac, Cornwall, and has been entertaining viewers as far back as 2004.

However, the eighth series aired in September 2017, with audiences growing increasingly frustrated by their lack of the doc over the past two years. Fortunately, we have some good news…

Is There a New Series of Doc Martin?


Filming for the new series of Doc Martin was announced by ITV on March 25th.

As always, the show will be shot in the picturesque seaside town of Port Isaac.

Martin said:

We love going to Cornwall to make Doc Martin, and we miss it when we are not there. The county is so beautiful, and the people have been so warm and welcoming to us.  It is the best job in television.

Doc Martin Series 9 – Air date

Every season of Doc Martin, bar one, has been launched at the start of September.

With filming for series 9 now underway you can expect the same sort of timeframe, with launch night coming within the first couple of weeks of September.

Doc Martin – American Remake

An American Remake is currently in development, which isn’t actually as surprising as it sounds.

Many UK shows have been adapted to cater further to U.S audiences, and Doc Martin is one of the next in line.

It certainly feels like a quintessentially British show, so it will be interesting to see how the project is handled.
