The new eighth series of Doc Martin airs on Wed 22 Sep on ITV at 9.00pm. Starring Martin Clunes as Doctor Martin Ellingham and Caroline Catz stars as Martin’s wife Louisa alongside Ian McNeice, Dame Eileen Atkins, Joe Absolom and Selina Cadell.
As Janice (Robyn Addison) has now left, Martin (Clunes) and Louisa (Catz) look for a nursery for James. Mrs Tishell (Cadell) is shocked when she discovers Al (Absolom) has extremely high blood pressure, and sends him straight to Martin. Ruth (Atkins) is approached about selling her farm, which provides an appealing opportunity as both the B&B and whisky business are not going well. A B & B customer called John (Art Malik) turns out to have more of a connection to Portwenn than he realises, after a revelation about Ruth and his father.
At school, Louisa helps with the diagnosis of a pupil, after the child begins to behave strangely in class. This influences Louisa to explore a possible career change. The idea is not welcomed by Martin who dislikes any change, even if it is good.
