In a related story in “Telly Visions,” Lacy Baugher writes:
“Rejoice, Doc Martin fans! We may not have a new season of the uber popular Britcom to look forward to just yet, but you’ll still be able to get your Martin Clunes fix on public television this year. And, if you’re a fan of Sherlock Holmes as well, then this is probably your version of Christmas. . . .
“’How perfect that Arthur & George will air on PBS, as public television has been such a wonderful home to Doc Martin,’” said Clunes. “’I’m sure that our new series will be a treat for Doc Martin fans, and for everyone who enjoys a terrific drama.'”
