Doc Martin Series 5

The Great 'Doc Martin' Watch Finishes Series 5

Our Doc Martin viewing marathon here at Telly Visions has finally, officially caught up, getting all the way through Series 5 this week. I feel ever so accomplished and pleased!

Before we start chatting about the actual last two episodes – I did want to take a second and say thank you to everyone who has for read and commented and been generally thoughtful and wonderful through this whole series. While I am very much not looking forward to having to wait through the hiatus with everyone else, it’s also just really going to feel strange not to sit down and wrestle with my personal thoughts about Martin and Louisa and romance and gender issues and strange neighbor every week. So, thanks for making it so fun. These recaps will of course return for Series 6, and I hear we’re airing the Doc Martin movies in June on WETA and those sound different/strange enough that I think writing about them will be fun so keep an eye out for that next month.

Oh, and I do want to keep doing more of these series re-watch kinds of things. They’re fun! So if you have any suggestions about what else might make an interesting weekly show to chat about, let me know in the comments. Current things under consideration: Sherlock Holmes (I’m a big Sherlockian, but have only seen about a third of the Jeremy Brett TV series), Doctor Who, Lark Rise to Candleford and Life on Mars. However, I am open to suggestions, so throw any and all ideas at me please.

So, onward! Click through and come chat with me about “Cats and Sharks” and “Ever After,” and, as always, feel free to leave your thoughts, favorite moments, funny lines, general rants, whatever, in the comments.

The Great Doc Martin Watch Continues On with Series 5 – Episodes 5 and 6

Our Doc Martin viewing marathon here at Telly Visions is currently making its way through Series 5 – up this week “Remember Me” and “Don’t Let Go.” It’s odd – we’re two thirds of the way through Series 5 now, and it doesn’t entirely feel like we’ve made a tremendous amount of progress storyline-wise. (Though, I suppose that's possibly because we keep coming back to the same emotional ground? Not sure.)

The two episodes up this week had both a lot to recommend them, as well as some difficult moments. Will be especially interested to hear the thoughts of others this week – as a I personally can’t quite decide how I feel about them, though I think that I’m generally on the more positive-than-not side. Mainly because even though several storyline events were frustrating to watch, it was still compelling television.

At any rate, onward! Click through and come chat with me and, as always, feel free to leave your thoughts, favorite moments, funny lines, general rants, whatever, in the comments.
