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 25 Oct 2017 at 9.00pm on ITV. Martin lives with his long-suffering wife Louisa (Caroline Catz) and their young son in the small and sometimes eccentric community of Portwenn in Cornwall.
PC Penhale (John Marquez) decides to hold a police open day. He only has one genuine visitor, angry local farmer Hannah Butler (Yolanda Kettle). James has started biting, and both Louisa and the other children at the nursery haven been bitten by him.
Concerned, Louisa speaks to her classmate and car-share buddy, Tina (Samantha Spiro). Morwenna takes Al on a trip away to a glamping site. Emily (Sally
Messham) has agreed to help out at the surgery while they are away, but Al is worried about leaving Bert to run the pub.
The trip does not go to plan, the owner of the glamping site is distracted by other issues and when Al tries to help, he ends up having problems of his own.
Doc Martin Season 8 Episode 6 airs Wednesday 25 October 2017 from 9.00pm-10.00pm on ITV.
