The eighth season of Doc Martin, starring Martin Clunes as Doctor Martin Ellingham, a GP with an unfortunate bedside manner and an inconvenient phobia of blood, continues Wednesday 18 Oct 2017 at 9.00pm on ITV. Caroline Catz stars as Martin’s wife Louisa alongside Ian McNeice, Dame Eileen Atkins, Caroline Quentin, Joe Absolom and Selina Cadell.
Martin (Clunes) and Louisa (Catz) are not sleeping. James is teething and nothing seems to be working. In desperation, they try Mel’s suggestion of amber beads, but this does not go as planned. Grief appears to have hit Mrs Tishell (Cadell) hard, as she is seen speaking to Clive. Al (Absolom) has received an order for Large Whisky.
However, he cannot put the still together, so he asks Bert (McNeice) for help. Bert agrees to help him, but they need to get Ruth’s (Atkins) approval to go ahead. At school, Louisa is having problems with Angela Sim’s (Quentin) nephew Toby.
Doc Martin Season 8 Episode 5 airs Wednesday 18 October 2017 from 9.00pm-10.00pm.
