This is the ultimate, all-in-one Doc Martin purchase, to date
By Harold Wolf
Already own any Doc Martin? This is a collection of all Doc Martin, and all good. I own them all already, gotten when originally released. This is a cheaper way to own them. But if you already own a series or two, you might be duplicating. If you are new to Doc Martin, get this deal, all of it, you will be glad. There is a Series 7 releasing on DVD the same day. Might want to pick that up as well. It seems like a lot of money, but it covers a lot of film, all funny, all worth watching multiple times. Funny folks that make your cheeks hurt from laughing.
Doc Martin is one of the funniest British series I have watched in the past decade.
This winning hit combines a country doctor, who faints at the sight of blood, with quirky villagers, and fantastic English seaside visual charm. It is a character driven series and you will come to love and laugh at the entire town. Now the entire series is packaged together, along with 2 TV movies that spawned the series. It's a must-see-all opportunity in the full-deal package. A set to own, for continuing viewing privilege; time after time.
SUBTITLES- yes! and for the bonus stuff too. Bonus as good as the episodes.
TV Season 1: Martin Clunes plays the London surgeon moving into sleepy Portwenn. Viewers are introduced to characters so odd they become household names. 6 episodes of hysterical hilarity.
2: Nine new episodes fail to ease the surly self-centered doctor. Romance (Caroline Catz) lingers on Cornish fishing village streets.
3: Doc's aunt (Stephanie Cole) is one of the less eccentric locals through the season's 7 episodes. Bert Large (Ian McNeice) plumber turned chef is wildly goofy as is Doc's receptionist.
4: The previous season ended in a surprise and they continue in 8 episodes with romance and blood sparking rumors, even a ghost.
5: Doc Martin (Martin Clunes) had packed prepared for a new position out of Portwenn. But girlfriend Louisa, a nameless son, & Aunt did not love his planned exit. That was then. Now we have 8 new episodes, and enjoy you will.
6: Things move fast in the port village with weddings, babies, crime, and goofy stuff. 8 episodes in season 6.
THE MOVIES: Doc Martin- 87 min. Doc discovers 3 doctor friends have bedded his wife. A trip to seclusion ends in Port Isaac mud and a lobster boat gig.
Doc Martin and the Legend of the Cloutie- 75 min. Doc stoops to cloutie-ing to get an out-of-the-way home he must fight for.
You'll not regret buying this HUGE 46 episode plus 2 feature length movie collection. Laugh from minute one until the end.
Not enough of Martin Clunes yet?--Try "Dirty Tricks" and "Reggie Perrin."

A favourite Brit-com
We were delighted to purchase this series on a lightning deal, Series 1-6, plus the movies. Doc Martin is one of our favourite Brit-coms. Kinda out there, but you fall for the characters after the first few episodes. Martin Clunes is fantastic as the cranky but brilliant surgeon serving as the local doctor for a Cornish village populated with colorful people. Great supporting cast. Once you start, you can't resist watching. With all the junk polluting major networks, this series is a breath of fresh air.

We have all seen Dr. Martin over the years on TV. We bought the complete series for my mother for Christmas to help her get through a long New England winter. She is already on season six and loving it. Great Purchase.
