it would be nice for a Doc's Aunt Joan Norton to return to the series...like she drops in and checks on her farm and then later on the Doc and his surgery....what a pleasant surprise...


Well, it would definitely be a surprise, not sure how pleasant it would be!

Would be hard to explain her funeral at opener of series 5. But, they could have scripted her to go off with her old sailor lover rather than kill her off. That would have left it open for an occasional appearance.

Also, seems Carolyn has trimmed up a bit. She sure looked good in that wedding dress.


Bloodyhell. She is and always was a stunningly beautiful, sexy woman.

Do you have REAL NATURAL women over there?

"She is and always was a stunningly beautiful, sexy woman."

I agree. She is quite a heart throb!

And yes we have them here. But they aren't on Doc Martin. :)

Are you from the Deep South, Mike?


Presently, yes. Lived most of my life in the North. Haven't developed an accent yet. Especially when I type! :)

I was pleased to find that Britcoms are quite popular here and the local PBS airs many hours of British material (comedy, drama, documentary) per week.

I am elated that Series 7 of Doc Martin may be in the works in late 2015. Meanwhile I watch ALL the Series on Acorn TV over and over again Wave. Love every scene because when Doc Martin appears, it's like putting your favourite icing, with blueberries, or strawberries, or cherries, or pineapples, on a cake. Rolling eyes All my attention is on "what will he say or do". I definitely prepare myself to rewind to view the scene over and over again so I will not miss a beat...due to my laughter...spoiling my view and attention.

Doc Martin is the "Best of Best" English Comedy-Drama I have seen, not to say there may have or maybe others. Then there is Martin Clunes the man.

Sir Martin Clunes is how I refer to him is an "Adventurous" person. I've seen most of his exploration films with lemurs, wolves and various domestic dogs, various types of beautiful horses, giant manta rays, and Mugie a young tiger. If there are other adventures that Sir Martin Clunes has filmed I haven't found them.

I will wait with bated breath for Doc Martin Series 7 in 2016, hopefully sooner not later.

Oh man that's great news! I love this show. Thanks for the heads up.
One of the other things I missed about these forums: the info!
I wish Martin Clunes would play in more shows and films. Actually can anyone recommend to me some of his more recent ape ranches outside of Doc Martin that were worth watching?

Hate on me all you want but I think he should have been considered as the new Doctor.

Hmmm, I think I'd better put my bulletproofs on!

In my far from humble opinion, I thought that series 6 was the weakest to date. The writers seemed to have forgotten the main storyline.
A doctor who's one step away from Asperger's syndrome and who has developed haemophobia, is in a small tightknit community. He doesn't understand them and they don't understand him.

Series 6 sent him towards being just "obnoxious" rather than psychologically different. Big mistake, one that I hope they remedy in series 7, but somehow I doubt it.

Is Series 7 confirmed? I thought it's gone as far as it could although I love it.

Yes it is. Saw an ITV new shows trailer and this was on it . There is also a video that shows Sigourney Weaver guest starring . Here it is: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Epi7zRllHZA

I really thought it was finished. I loved it (especially CC) but I think it should wind up now.
