Col. Robert Colyer, Retired, USAF, traveled to Port Isaac during the filming of “Doc Martin” Season 6. Here are photos and his account of his accidental meeting with Martin Clunes. A huge thanks to Col. Colyer!
I arrived in Port Isaac hoping to see ‘someone’ connected with the show. My taxi was stopped for some unknown reason, and I jumped out to see the cause. I turned a corner and physically ran into Martin Clunes.

When I realized who it was, I, who am never at a loss for words, started babbling. Mr. Clunes immediately shook my hand while I was trying to find my voice. When I was able to speak, I said, ‘We’ve heard in Las Vegas that Series 6 is the end. Is that true?’
He responded with, ‘It bloody well better not be. I have 14 horses to feed.’
From that point, I was able to stay around the set while they filmed two scenes from the last episode of Series 6. My trip was made.”
