I agree it is sensible. In the US the costumes used in a television show belong to someone else other than the actor. They may be owned by the studio production company, or could be rented or something like that. I'm sure it happens once in a while that an actor may keep his or her costumes, but it's not super common. But Martin is definitely not a clothes horse, and I can see him asking the costumers if he can keep something. He owns all the DM costumes, of course, since it's his company.

Speaking of costumes, I think Louisa looks great in her maternity clothes in series 4.
That would explain it.
In the US Actresses seem to be given designer outfits so the designer gets their name known.

Yes LGs clothes in s4 are very nice.

I agree. Didn't think it through -- seems crazy to plan to drive in London.
Yes I agree but public transport? Could understand a taxi. You'd think he'd be mobbed but maybe UK is more like Australia where we recognise an actor and nudge our companion to point him out but don't approach!

Was just doing some Saturday morning surfing and found myself on a Twitter search for MC. Some fun stuff - a lot of mentions of Heavy Horsepower with about 50-50 loving it and making fun of it (lots of hamburger jokes). One person said MC should narrate everything (totally agree) and another mentioned Hunting Venus and said MC is a God (LOL!)

But the funny bit is that he apparently was In London for a few days. We saw the Twitter pic of him and we saw the pics of him seeing War Horse. But one guy tweeted on Tuesday that he was standing next to him in H & M Regent St looking at David Beckham underwear range (moving on from Calvin Klein?) and this was followed immediately by a young woman who said "Martin Clunes in Mac #celebspot #soho". Then yesterday, three different people spotted him in Waterloo Station, one said he was getting on a train to Exeter.

Maybe he and Phillipa had a nice Valentines Day outing to London? I guess he can't go anywhere without being spotted. Thought it funny that three different people tweeted about seeing him in the train station
Just looked again - it was 4 people who spotted him at the train station (all guys too!) and another person yesterday said "I saw Martin Clunes in London today!" and yet another this morning said, "Saw Martin Clunes yesterday".

No wonder he stays out of London!
I can't imagine being a celebrity and have people talking about where I've been, shopping for underwear, etc. I remember a guy tweeting about how he was standing next to MC at the urinal during a break at the awards show in Jan 2012. Sorry no pictures were provided.

You see all sorts on the tube and train. For example I once saw Sir Ian McKellan on the tube. Twas no big deal-he was just another passenger on a cold March day. I knew who he was and smiled at him and he smiled back. Everyone else in the carriage was too busy with their newspapers, books and such.

The only people who would get 'mobbed' on the tube/train are David Beckhams, George Clooneys, Justin Biebers and Madonnas of the world and they are generally too 'good' to use public transport anyway. There was a story about Jay-Z riding the subway in New York a couple of months ago and he talked to some old lady for a couple minutes and she didn't have a clue as to who he was.

I've seen him in the cardigan when in Scotland for the Scottish Hotel Event, September 2011. I've read that he takes the train to London from Crewkerne.

Some guy saw him shopping for underwear at HMV.
Good lord, I hope he bought something different to sleep in for Series 6!

I think him sleeping in underwear would be just fine. How about a fan poll?

. . .Looking at David Beckham underwear. . . .shopping for underwear at HMV.
Hmmm--looking at new underwear--could this not foreshadow what we will see in S6?
High-end underwear for DM - now can we drag him to the pajama department?

Screw the pajamas. Just the David Beckham underwear will do nicely!

How about an MC in underwear/pyjamas calendar ?

But with the Doc's hair-cut ?

Just visited the web-site - how very stylish

Thanks to all those involved with this upgrade - must be such a lot of hard work

For which we are eternally grateful

Thank You All - just in time for Series 6

Thanks for pointing me back to http://www.docmartinonline.net/ and a big thank-you to DoctorRabies who has brought about this upgrade. (I hope she is still dropping in on us from time to time.)

One of the great new features is a special section on articles about Doc Martin and Martin Clunes from various online and press sources.

When browsing this section, I found again the 2012 LA Times interview with MC, which was quite a good one, I think, with more than usual meat in it.

I like his analogy of his and Louisa's relationship as a Venn diagram, with the main tension of their relationship being how much can be pulled into the overlap of the circles. Of course, now James Henry is one big piece of the overlap. And from time to time we get a glimpse of the similarity of some of their underlying values, as in the scene with the badger-burning Mrs. Oakwood. And of course they are both in careers of service. But what else?

Also in this article is his statement on Asberger's. I find it fascinating that Dominic Minghella says that he wrote the character with that in mind, but implicit, and MC says that he never thought of that at all, as he developed the character.

And he does say that he has never wanted ANY of his characters cured, but celebrated as they are. Interesting. So odds are that we won't see much character change as such in S6, but maybe different aspects of his character?

Well NewPark, I don't check in ALL the time - but you never know...

Thanks for the feedback on the site - we've been working nonstop on it - even though it seems to be never ending! But have high hopes that it'll be great when it is completed. Loads of stuff planned for this year actually - it's about to get serious!

Please find the new area for the fan poll - and there's also a chat box should anyone want to leave a shout out to the Doc Martin world!

http://www.docmartinonline.net/fan-stuff/

Anyway, more from me shortly. I'll certainly be around much more this year

Hope everyone is having a great 2013 - and welcome to all the new fans from around the world!

I agree, but the Doc never made a list of things to do to get on with the villagers. Yet Morton has an odd analytical bent unlike Martin. There is something else too that gets me. She acts almost emotionless and that jars with being a wife with four kids. There must have been trauma in her life? Perhaps that will be revealed latter.
The difference between DI Morton and the previous female character - whose name escapes me - is so black and white. I found the first character annoying and distracting and I am still forming an opinion of Helen. She is in such contrast to LG, the other female lead, and to the rest of the DCI Banks cast so I think we are meant to be a bit unsure of her. The comments about trust coming from Banks were quite telling. Let's hope that the poker game does begin a thawing out.

I hadn't thought of it before but you are correct that her demeanor is odd for a wife and mother of 4 but the opening scenes of her overseeing the boys homework was very consistent with her crisp, no-nonsense attitude.

With DM beginning to film, perhaps we have seen the last of DI Morton? Wonder what their filming schedule is. Guess the last upcoming episode will tell us her fate.

Annie Cabot. I hope it's not offensive to say that I have never seen a female character portrayed as so heavily pregnant.

I think the plan always was for Annie Cabot to return. Hope only good things happen to DI Morton.

And of course this episode includes the infamous button scene, which I put into one of my stories as a memory...

Rob
I LOVE the button scene!

YES PLEASE.

I don't know if I mentioned this on here before, but I would love to have a sticker/magnet for my car that says Portwenn...here in the States they have them for dozens of places (Outer Banks, etc.). Wish the Doc Martin store sold something like that.

That scene is a masterpiece

Ought to appear in every drama course everywhere

Deserves an award all on its own...

I wonder how many takes it took ?

To depart from the nether regions of underwear, ahem, how many of you think:

1) Mrs Tishell will be seen in S6?
2) Louisa and Martin be married straight away in the new season?
3) Martin will actually leave surgery in his past and stay as the GP of Portwenn?
4) Pauline Lamb return to the village?
5) And for that matter, will we see LG's mum or her dad back on the scene?
