Will there be a new series of Doc Martin?

There will be a 10th and final series of Doc Martin.

In September last year, Martin Clunes said: “We have loved making nine series of Doc Martin.

“When we launched the series in 2004, we could never have imagined how much our loyal viewers would take to the grumpy Doc like they have.

“The series has avid fans both in the UK and throughout the world.

“We are thrilled that Doc Martin has topped the ratings every time.

“However, after 16 years, we now feel that the time has come to say goodbye.

“We will be making the 10th and final series in 2021.

“We are very much looking forward to returning to Cornwall to film it.”

Doc Martin spin-off?

Ian McNeice, who plays plumber Bert Large, has teased that there may still be life in the show.

He claims that show bosses would be “foolish” not consider a spin-off for his character.

He told Go Tours: “Oh definitely. I think we’d be foolish not to do something like that.

“If you look at shows that have been very successful, there’s always the possibility of a spin-off.

“Like Breaking Bad, Only Fools & Horses and Cheers…

“There are a lot of people who like the characters of Bert and Al, maybe there is a spin-off for them. It’s a hope!”

How did series nine of Doc Martin end?

Series nine ended on an explosive cliffhanger in November 2019.

Ever since, fans have been demanding answers in the form of more episodes.

Season nine ended with Dr Martin resigning from his post of GP.

Viewers saw the GP get through the final part of his General Medical Council scrutiny but things didn’t go smoothly…

Doc Martin series 10 is set to air on ITV1 in 2022. Fans can stream series one to nine on BritBox.
