It is bittersweet, Yes the TV show Doc Martin has been renewed for a tenth season. However, this 10th season will be the final for the show. This was revealed by the star actor Martin Clunes in September 2020, stating that “All good things have to come to an end.” The show produced by Phillipa Braithwaite has been an overall success with high viewership, ratings, and accolades. It won the British Comedy Award for Best TV Comedy Drama in the year 2004. The TV show has been a fan favorite for viewers of the network ITV, giving the network viewership as high as 10.37 million per episode. Created by Dominic Minghella, Doc Martin is somewhat of a spin-off from the show titled Saving Grace, where Dr. Martin Bramford first appeared.
Doc Martin Season 10 Plot: What will happen next?
The TV show examines the life and activities of the self christened protagonist Dr. Martin, a medical doctor, specifically a vascular surgeon. He developed a fear of blood, which forces him to becoming a general practitioner. He moved to the sleepy town of Portwenn. The locals refer to him as Doc Martin, an indispensable part of the community, and bombard him with naive and sometimes stupid questions, even though his brash behavior annoys them. Dr. Martin is married to Louisa, a headmistress, and together they have a son, James. They live in their home with a dog, Buddy.
Last season ended on a cliff-hanger, where Doc Martin undergoes the final test in Assisted Surgery for General Medical Council. Also, the wedding bells are ringing in the town, Morwenna and Al are getting married; hopefully, no surprises spring up.
