After the fantastic news that Doc Martin was being recommissioned for a seventh series by ITV, we’ve had to wait a while for the popular medical comedy drama to come back to our screens. But fear not, the wait is nearly over as Martin Clunes (Men Behaving Badly) returns tonight as the grumpy Martin Ellingham.
But just in case you forgot what happened to the Doc and co, lets take you back. Series six saw Martin and Louisa (Caroline Catz) finally get married, but a life-threatening incident saw Louisa taking their son James Henry to live with her mother in Spain while they worked out their issues.
And so, as series seven begins, Martin is faced with questions: will Louisa come back to him; and what can he do to make sure that she does? The good doc knows that he needs to change for the sake of his marriage, and in episode one, seeks out a therapist to try and effect this change. However, life in Portwenn transpires to get in his way – namely in the shape of Steve Baker, and a Lifeboat training exercise.
In this sense we get a familiar view of the unique and very watchable character that Clune has delivered us over the past few seasons – assuring us that Doc Martin will remain the warm-hearted classic we know it to be.
