The much-loved drama returns for an eighth series! Martin Clunes reprises his role as the gruff but affable GP Martin Ellingham. Having rekindled their relationship, Martin and Louisa must navigate their way through busy jobs, a teething toddler and the medical needs of Portwenn's residents.
This autumn nights draw viewers to the fireside for a good old fashioned family drama. Doc Martin blends the cheerless middle aged General Practitioner who is a throwback from a bygone era, with the a setting in a Cornish fishing village, another relic from a time when everyone in the community knows each other business. Martin Clunes plays the former surgeon, who because of developing haemophobia (a fear of blood), moves out into a rural practice to operate as a GP. The Doctors lack of humour and indifference to the fears of his patients creates the perfect parochial centre point for life in the village. Season 8 focuses on typical modern family life, where work and juggling the baby bring challenges to the married couple, Martin (Clunes) and Louisa (Caroline Catz). Some new arrivals to the village include missionaries, an American tourist and a vet.

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play. Few things in life can be relied upon, but the drama, humour and wildly disparate personalities of Doc Martin and Portwenn are always guaranteed to bring joy to viewers everywhere. As we join the Doctor in this eighth series, we find his relationship with his wife Louisa back on a more even keel, although juggling their jobs with baby care is proving more challenging daily. Meanwhile Bert and Al Large face challenges of their own, with brewing whisky and running a B&B not quite turning out as they had hoped; Mrs Tishell suffers a terrible and unexpected setback in her life; and Penhale, already facing romantic challenges, faces a mini crime spree and decides to host a Police Open Day. Newcomers to the village include a new curate as well as Morwenna’s parents, Jack and Tara who worked as missionaries in Kenya; and the village sees the return of Beth, the American tourist and veterinarian Angela Sim. And swimming through the maelstrom of it all is Doctor Ellingham, suffering humanity’s foibles with little tolerance and suffering literally with a newly adopted dog, against his better judgment, underfoot Actors: Martin Clunes, Caroline Catz, Dame Eileen Atkins, Ian McNeice, Joe AbsolomFormat: PALLanguage: EnglishSubtitles: EnglishSubtitles For The Hearing Impaired: EnglishRegion: Region 2 (This DVD may not be viewable outside Europe.
