The tenth and final season of the popular drama created by Martin Clunes is titled, Doc Martin. It will therefore be bittersweet for fans when the programme returns to ITV in the fall of 2022, only to conclude with a Christmas special.
Since 2004, the drama based in the Cornish village of Portwenn has been a regular feature of ITV's schedules and has gained worldwide popularity, from Spain and Italy to Scandinavia and Australia.
Martin Clunes, who has portrayed the cantankerous Dr. Martin Ellingham for over two decades, adds, “I've enjoyed travelling to Cornwall to film Doc Martin for the past 18 years, and I'm looking forward to returning this year for the tenth and final season.” Cornwall residents, and Port Isaac in particular, have been incredibly helpful during the production of the series.
Release Date of Doc Martin season 10
Doc Martin starts on ITV on September 7, 2022, at 9:00 p.m., as a major part of the autumn television schedules, with the Christmas special airing in December. There are eight episodes in this series. On Monday, October 17, season 10 of Doc Martin will premiere in the United States on Acorn TV.
A celebration documentary about the history of Doc Martin will follow the last season, but its release date has not yet been determined. The “final hurrah” Christmas special will then air in December 2022 and be a highlight of Christmas television.
The plot of Doc Martin Season 10
At the conclusion of the last season of Doc Martin in 2019, Doc chose to quit as Portwenn's general practitioner after his medical career was scrutinised by the General Medical Council due to his blood phobia. In this final season of Doc Martin, he makes efforts to conquer his anxiety and begins to question whether retiring was the correct move.
In addition, he and his wife Louisa have recently given birth to a daughter, Mary Elizabeth, who is the younger sister of James Henry, who is four years old. We predict that their household will be quite chaotic in this series. With Louisa pursuing her new work as a child counsellor in his old surgery, the Doc is left actually cuddling the baby and repairing clocks at the kitchen table as a hobby. But does he truly desire his previous position?
Martin Clunes adds, “The Doc resigned in the previous series, and when the new season begins, he is literally left cradling the baby, as he and Louisa have had a second child, daughter Mary Elizabeth.” “He begins to rethink whether resigning was the correct decision!” In addition, there are new filming views of Martin beside a car on the edge of a cliff! There is also a view of a woman standing at the base of a cliff, though it is unclear what the image depicts.
The Cast of Doc Martin Season 10
In season 10 of Doc Martin, Martin Clunes reprises his role as Dr. Martin Ellingham, the grumpy local physician in the fictional Cornish seaside community of Portwenn who has an aversion to blood and a rude bedside demeanour.

He has also hosted a number of travel series on ITV, including Islands of the Pacific with Martin Clunes.

Dame Eileen Atkins, who portrays Doc Martin's fearsome Aunt Ruth, is among the other returning regular cast members. Ian McNeice returns as Bert Large, while Joe Absolom portrays his son Al. John Marquez reprises his role as PC Joe Penhale, Jessica Ransom reprises her role as Morwenna Newcross, and Selina Cadell reprises her role as Mrs. Tishell, the village pharmacist.
Recap of Season 9 of Doc Martin
In the last episode, the General Medical Council was investigating Martin. At the conclusion of the episode, surgeon Bernard Newton (Tom Conti) arrives in Portwenn to evaluate the physician and his practice. He dreaded returning home and breaking the news of his resignation to his wife Louisa (Caroline Catz). Louisa is expecting a kid, she revealed to him upon his arrival at the house.
The conclusion of Series 9 left fans with even more unanswered questions than before. It appears that Season 10 will deliver an abundance of answers, so be on the lookout.
