Selina Cadell, who has worked with Martin Clunes on the “Doc Martin” set for 11 years, wrote a lovely article for the Daily Mail about her experiences on the “doggy” set.
“When I first met Martin 11 years ago now on this very set, I saw him as a tall, curious clown: gentle, courteous and very quick-witted. But I didn’t realise just how doggy he is.”
As an aside, when I was in Port Isaac myself this spring, I had the same thought about Martin that Selina expressed in her article when she said:
“It’s a tribute to Martin’s acting that he can play a dog-hater so well. After another scene in which he’s had to portray bitter hatred towards the dog, it’s so touching to see him bend down and whisper a sweet nothing in the little mongrel’s ear.”
