Doc Martin Series 6: Will the Doctor and Louisa Finally Get Married?

If you're a fan of British television, chances are you've discovered the quirky little ITV series Doc Martin. The series, which stars Martin Clunes, focuses on the titular, curmudgeonly, big-city doctor, who serves as the General Practitioner of the small fishing village Portwenn. He hates it there, and only finds a few people even tolerable -- his aunt, and schoolteacher Louisa Glasson (Caroline Catz), with whom he has been in an on-and-off relationship since the beginning of the series. The two had a child in the show's fourth series, and the recently aired fifth season saw the two struggling to adapt to living together with the baby. It's a funny, clever little show that feels quintessentially British, and is a must-watch for Anglophiles.

One of the bad things about the show, though, is the long hiatus between seasons. Nearly two years passed between series 3 and 4, with a similar gulf occurring between series 4 and 5. Series 6 isn't slated to premiere until late 2013, meaning that we have a long way to wait before we get to see any more of Portwenn. 

To build a little bit of anticipation for the new series, star Martin Clunes shared a bit of a teaser in a recent interview with the Radio Times. "[We start filming] next year and I can't wait to go back there," Clunes shared. "[Series 6] will be interesting because Louisa and the doctor are finally going to marry, I think. But I don't want to give too much away!"

Doc Martin will return for its sixth series in late 2013. 

You can order Doc Martin series 5 on DVD from Amazon.

So little worth watching these days. Would be disappointing if Doc Martin didn't return for Season 7. Let's hope the 'powers that be' are in agreement.

I gave heard the next season will tie up all loose ends and end the show. But when will the next season be here?

We love Doc Martin, and who can tell us if there is going to be a season 7?

I love Pauline. I think Al should marry Pauline. I also would like to finnaly see Doc Sims and for Aunt Joan Norton to pop in for a visit.

I really miss Pauline. She was, by far, the best receptionist. I'd give her the key to my flat anyday.

It's a pretty cool series. But it's lacking somewhat in excitement and high adventure. Like the Doc could strap on a jetpack and hover around Portwenn or PC Pennhale could.
