Doc Martin: The Movie

Posted by WMHT Web Editor

Watch Saturday, June 7, 2014 at 7pm on WMHT TV.

Before there was DOC MARTIN the series, there was ... DOC MARTIN: THE MOVIE. The history of the DOC MARTIN series is unique. The character, as portrayed by actor Martin Clunes, had its origins in a theatrical film called Saving Grace and a supporting character in it called Dr. Martin Bamford. In between that film and the series we know today came two television movies with Dr. Bamford at their center. DOC MARTIN: THE MOVIE is the first of these "prequels." While the movies have a different "mythology," the seeds of what ultimately became DOC MARTIN are evident.
