  1. Doc Martin is my favourite show of all times. Yes, I do laugh and yes it has also helped get me through my chemo. I’ve been there twice to meet him and watch the filming flying at great expense from Canada to Port Isaac and looking forward to being able to do it at least once more before the cancer takes over. Thank you Martin Clunes.
