At the Scene of “Doc Martin,” Series 7 — Part 2 — Filming in the Village and Harbor

by Karen Gilleland  © 2015

I walked down to the village about 9:30 a.m. on my first day in “Portwenn.” Filming was under way for a scene featuring Joe Absolom (Al) and Jessica Ransom (Morwenna) at the Life Boat Station. The scene took several hours, as cameras moved around inside and outside the building.

(Note: After the first reference to the actors’ real names, I’ll refer to them by their character names.)

Between takes, cast members were very obliging, smiling for photos, shaking hands, autographing pictures and postcards. Here’s Al, of the beautiful blue eyes!

Make-up finished and looking stunning, Morwenna poses for fan photos.

Scripts in hand, the actors gather with the director for instructions. I believe the blond woman is Katie Moore, who played Morwenna’s friend, Janice, in Series 6, Episode 8.

The crew moved across to the harbor in the afternoon for a scene featuring Martin Clunes.
