Acorn TV has released the Doc Martin Season 10 trailer, which gives us a first look at the final episodes of the popular UK dramedy starring Martin Clunes (Manhunt). Doc Martin Season 10 will premiere on Acorn TV with two episodes on Monday, October 17.
The series, centering on the infamously grumpy Dr. Martin Ellingham, will continue with one episode per week through the series’ penultimate episode on November 28.
Check back in with the Doc this winter with a final farewell to the series: first the Doc Martin – A Celebration documentary on December 26, and the final Christmas special on December 31.
The adored UK series follows Clunes as the surly and self-centered yet beloved medic with a rude bedside manner and a phobia of blood.
At the end of season 9, the Doc decided that he would resign from being the GP in the small town of Portwenn – after his career was scrutinized by the General Medical Council because of his phobia.
In Doc Martin Season 10, a year has passed since Martin resigned his medical license, and his wife, Louisa (Caroline Catz, DCI Banks), is now the one seeing patients as a child counselor, while he looks after their own two young children and indulges his hobby of repairing clocks on the kitchen table. But does the Doc truly never want to practice medicine again?
Among the series’ veteran cast returning for the final season are Dame Eileen Atkins, Ian McNeice, Joe Absolom, John Marquez, Jessica Ransom and Selina Cadell.
The Doc Martin Season 10 guest stars include Fay Ripley (Cold Feet), David Hayman (Landscapers), Ben Miller (Professor T, Bridgerton), Lesley Nicol (Downton Abbey), Hermione Norris (Cold Feet), Kenneth Cranham (Finding Alice), and Rupert Graves (Sherlock, Riviera).
Doc Martin is produced by Philippa Braithwaite, the executive producer is Mark Crowdy, and the directors are Nigel Cole, Philip John, and Kate Cheeseman.
The writers are Jack Lothian, Andrew Rattenbury, Kevin Cecil, Julian Unthank, and Chris Reddy.
