At the Scene of “Doc Martin,” Series 7 — Part 4 — Location Sets in Beautiful Port Isaac

 Below is an excerpt from Karen Gilleland's next insallment, detailing the behind-the-scences access she had while being an extra on Doc Martin. You can read the whole thing HERE and see more photos!

Last October, I announced that Martin Clunes had donated a walk-on part for “Doc Martin” to benefit Emily Skerrett, a young woman with a connective tissue disorder who wanted to compete in the para-Olympics for Dressage, and that the part was being auctioned on eBay. What was an “insanely addicted fan” like myself to do but bid? That explains how I became an “extra.”

I am especially grateful to Johnny Bamford, Jim Connelly-Webster and Emily’s mother, Janey Comber, for spicing up our experience with remarkable “extras.”

I was walking to my hotel one afternoon when a car pulled up. “Are you the lady from America?” a man asked.

“Yes, how did you know?”

“I was told to look for the lady in the fishing vest.” Next thing I knew, Linda and I were whisked off to see the sights.
