The wait is almost over – or, at the very least, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Yes, really, a first look trailer for Doc Martin Series 6 has been released – giving us our first new footage of Martin Ellingham and the wacky residents of Portwenn in well over a year. (Possibly over two years if we’re counting on UK time? But let's not make ourselves feel worse, shall we?)
Stars Martin Clunes and Caroline Catz are both back, alongside Dame Eileen Atkins, Ian McNeice, John Marquez and more, as Martin and Louisa appear to be settling back into both raising a baby and working together. Oh, and maybe actually getting married finally.
At any rate, following the dramatic and difficult events of Series 5, it looks as though things have reverted a bit more to form in the new season – this trailer has the same kind of quirky, communal feel as Doc Martin’s first couple of seasons and already seems an improvement in tone over Series 5. (It certainly seems to have found its charm again, at least!)
See for yourselves below.
