Catch the off-the-cuff, six-minute video interview with Martin Clunes about “Doc Martin” Series 7, conducted by What’s on TV.
“There was always comedy . . . but we explored the emotional boundaries, which we needed to do at the time, but, yeah, we’re bringing a bit more comedy back.”
He also said: “The scripts this year are rock solid. I think the best we’ve ever had.”

In my own opinion, if Martin’s statement about the scripts holds true, the season should be phenomenal because I’ve always admired the scripts. My favorite writer is Jack Lothian. Remember the balcony scene with Mrs. Tischell and the “Doc” that he wrote? A classic, for sure. I was pleased to learn that Jack has written some episodes this time. I do miss Ben Bolt, who directed most of the episodes in Series 1 – 5 and wrote a good many wonderful scripts himself.
“Doc Martin” is already airing in the UK on ITV on Monday evenings at 9 p.m.
Acorn TV, a streaming service, will broadcast Series 7 in America beginning Monday, October 5. For a small subscription fee, members can watch episodes of “Doc Martin,” as well as other British shows, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
I’m sure I speak for all of the Doc’s insanely addicted fans when I say we are soooo ready for Season 7.
