Doc Martin: Series 8 News

RLJ Entertainment’s Acorn brand secured exclusive North American rights to two more seasons of smash hit dramedy Doc Martin. The series remains one of Acorn’s bestselling series of all-time and a huge hit on its streaming service Acorn TV. Doc Martin stars BAFTA winner Martin Clunes in the lead performance as a tactless, self-centered, and uptight doctor in a quirky seaside town in Cornwall. The new season, Series 8, started production in picturesque Port Isaac on the North Cornwall coast earlier this month.

Broadcast on ITV in the UK, AcornTV will premiere Series 8, consisting of eight episodes, in fall/winter 2017. Subscribers can continue to watch the first seven series anytime on Acorn TV.

Set in the fictional town of Portwenn, the series also features Caroline Catz as his wife Louisa and Dame Eileen Atkins as the Doc’s formidable Aunt Ruth. Also returning this season are Ian McNeice, Joe Absolom, Jessica Ransom, and Selina Cadell. Art Malik guest stars. After having therapy to save their marriage in the last series, Doc Martin and Louisa face the challenge of living happily together with their baby James Henry.

Viewing is still a long way off, but I'll post when the schedule is up!
