I read every one of them! When I was reading DM S5 blogspot after S5 was being filmed, seeing the pixs of fans visiting PI and some of the outdoor scenes you really didn't know what was going on. Climbing that ladder to the PW school roof and many flicker pixs posted I still couldn't piece together why DM was going to climb. When Penhale's patrol car goes over the stone wall, I didn't know why that happened, the conversation DM & AR had outside the surgery when he held JH in one arm and a bag of refuse in the other, no clues either what transpired, the conversation LG had with ELInor outside the pub patio--couldn't tell. So for me nothing is spoiled, it only heightens my enthusiasm to see
S6 with the indoor and outdoor dialogue.
As for Northern Exposure, the actor Rob Morrow playing the doctor appeared to me to be queasy touching his patients, whereas DM never gave you that feeling that he was an actor playing a doctor and had to touch some of his disgusting patient's feet, stomach, whatever. He was completely at ease
sticking his finger in mouths, too.
In speaking of Edith, what a complete turnaround from when this forum discussed her after S4! She was referred to as boney trollop, or BT for short. She was an essential element in the storyline IMO. Just as at this point we didn't much care for S5, perhaps we will see by the end of everyone viewing S6 why that was played with such darkness.
Talk about a true fan, I am typing this with my cast on my right hand, all I can say is I am coping and enjoying all your posts (and Spoilers) --a real pick-me-up.
It looks like several of us are getting a pick-me-up of the non-medicinal variety here while we deal with medical and other not-so-fun life issues. How thankful I am for this lovely distraction that's been helping me cope. A true fan--yes, you are, marchrand!

I'm curious how many of us are reading the spoilers. There were only two people who responded to my recent spoiler and I realized perhaps most on this forum might be filtering their info until the show airs.

Would you let me know if you're reading the spoilers?
I read them. I love 'em!

Do you guys know of or remember any American tv shows that had a beautiful location like Port Isaac in Doc Martin? I can't think of any!
Northern Exposure, which is similar to Doc Martin in so many ways, was set in a beautiful location, although quite different than Port Isaac.

Well, I'd be quite happy to take the leftover!

Oh, sorry, ShopGirl, I didn't notice you'd already taken dibs on him.
The Doc is mine. The rest of you can fight over Penhale.

Ohhhh - some new pics this morning on FB (filming from Thursday) of ME sporting a new tie! Navy blue with white somethings (almost look like little croissants or something). Oh - and a black suit. I don't think he wears black suits very often - looks a bit formal.

How sad am I that this was the highlight of my Saturday morning?
No time yesterday, but the new tie was the first thing I saw when I signed on at FB this morning. I like it! Gosh, he looks nice! Sigh.

Oh, B.G., I have to wait until tomorrow night, but enjoy. Glad to hear from you again, dear instigator of this forum!
I really enjoyed watching it again The series has grown on me the more times I've watched it. I am more than intrigued to see what happens this series...I've been very good and avoided spoilers for a while so this is the first series I'll be watching where I don't know what to expect! Kind of excited by the prospect of this...

I do know what I'd like to happen though....

Oh, and I think MC has been fought over on here many times over the years - I think there are a fair few of us who rather like him!

So who is it the four of you are really discussing here--Doc Martin or Martin Clunes? I'm thinking it is the latter....
Just catching up here. For me, it's the Doc. MC is a sexy, gorgeous man, but it's the Doc that gets me going.

I am having a good laugh over the things emerging here - spoilers, big hands and ears, tall men, brunette women, clothing, filming and camera angles, myths and legends, pony tails and makeup, contraception... I'm glad we all understand this is a TV show, right? TV? Like ... on no, maybe it's not???
But when you actually watch Martin filming, like I did all day June 28, it's no longer is a TV show. It's very, very, very real!

MC is the best on screen kisser that I've ever seen...and I'm old enough to see enough. With his voice and secret personality my heart rate goes up a notch when I look at him. I don't know exactly what it is but he has SOMETHING ! I'm hoping to see a shirtless Doc in the new series and perhaps some physical proximity to Louisa...embraces, hugs

Oh , yes, I never check the spoilers......,,,,yeah, right! They are so awesome and make me so excited for series 7!
Where's the "like" button?

Hi, brendan's girl, so happy to see you back again.

I hope you share your thoughts with us as the S6 episodes air, especially as you'll be spoiler-less, unlike so many of us. I'm curious to know if your reaction will be different than it will be for those of us who have a few clues (although not all).

I really like your thoughts on Edith, Mona.
I don't really see Edith as predatory. I see the big difference between Edith and LG is that Edith wants to change DM. She doesn't like Portwenn, she wants him to be a surgeon in London, she wants him to get over his blood phobia. Edith likes the idea of a relationship with DM but I'm not sure she really loves DM even to the full extent that she can love someone.

LG recognises that he's difficult, a stick of rock and gruff, monosyllabic and rude (even if he's well meaning) but she still loves him. She's prepared to go to London for him which is a huge step for her because we know she hates it there.
She doesn't just like the idea of him but even though it is against her will at times, she really loves him.
Thanks, cc.cookie!

It seems to me that both women pretty clearly wish to change DM.

Edith wants him to heal from his hemophobia, reassert his medical career, and move to the city where he can thrive as a surgeon. She accepts his personality as it is, and is not trying to change that at all. His lack of intimacy with her was an another emotional issue which needed healing, but overall who DM was was okay with her.

LG, on the other hand, wants him to change his personality, and reacts to his odd ways. She has a decided mindset about how love goes and lovers act (which most of us agree with!) and needs him to change to get somewhat closer to those ideals. As for locality, for most of the show, she wanted him to stay in PW, but we saw her flexibility in that regards in S5.

Here's the quote and a link to the interview with JG.

"Glaswegian Julie says she loved working with Martin. "He is very sexy. He's smart, funny and talented, a demon combination. He's also madly in love with his wife and little girl." She even enjoyed filming a scene where both actors were required to strip off and share a bath together.

"Oh, it was lovely," she says. "But then, it would be lovely being naked with Martin Clunes anywhere." But then, Julie is no stranger to unconventional love scenes."

Too bad she hadn't set up a little spy camera during that scene....

Please tell your alter-ego in Bulgaria (erh, excuse me, the internet mastermind) that she is a naughty, naughty girl.

I still think the kiss in the back of the taxi was very, very sexy - and there was a lot to it. First was the build up, the anticipation. Once their fingers touch, Louisa makes her move. Then they stop and she looks at him with pure lust in her eyes (great acting?) Is there anything sexier than a partner that has THAT look? The second part of the kiss, he reaches for her and really gets into it (that's why we know the breath thing can't be such a big deal.) MC/the Doc is a great kisser - and he and CC/Louisa are such a fantastic match physically. Tremendous screen chemistry in every way.

You know, Julie Graham has said how extremely sexy Martin is to work with romantically, but I have never heard CC say anything about that. In fact, why is she not interviewed more? Is it that she's not asked or not willing?
I'd like to know that too. In fact, there is so much talk on this forum and elsewhere about Martin Clunes, Doc Martin, Martin Ellingham, Louisa and all the other characters; but we don't see much about Caroline Catz other than superficial information. Just noticed that she has a new unofficial fan website, but nothing really unusual there.

One of the guys that has posted filming pics on FB put them on YT as a montage with the theme music - possible spoilers.

If I had to pick between MC and ME I would choose MC because of his sense of fun and his bunny hugging ways, but I wouldn't kick either one out of my bed.
You should be so lucky

Absolutely agree with your assessment of the two women.

I feel the same way even though my visit was sans filming. Because, I suppose, the village is real, just like it says on the tin!

I myself had Martin Clune-itis for a few years!! Loved him the most in S2 but wasn't so keen on the way his character progressed. There is something about his grumpiness as the Doc though...
