Anyone else looking forward to this tonight? I love Martin Clunes in this! Even DH likes it ( but still pretends not to!)

Agree a xmas special would be good. who knows that may havd been the plan all along.

Yeah I think you're right a Xmas special to tie up all the loose ends would be great

Its gone on for far too long now definitely but they cannot leave it like that! Would be crap. They should have finished it either when Louisa gave birth to baby James or at the end of the last series. This series was a mistake but they've done it now and they can't leave it to end like that. It either needs a new series to tie it all up or a one off special just to finish it once and for all.

I'd like to think with new characters it could do another series. After all each series is only 6 or 8 episodes long. But I think I read that Martin clunes had to be persuaded to do this last one so not sure if he'd do another

It's just got so outlandish now.

Unfortunately the end of the last episode this week leaves the way open for a new series. But I think they've run out of steam - the same way that Monarch Of The Glen got really stupid in the end.

Oh buggar I loved this serieshmm

Kikithecat Wed 23-Oct-13 14:49:08

Yes definitely the last in the series - but the last ever I should think.

susiedaisy Wed 23-Oct-13 14:41:49

Was that the last one??confused

Kikithecat Wed 23-Oct-13 10:10:55

Ah yes it's all coming back now...

FruOla Wed 23-Oct-13 09:42:23

Here we go Lost in the woods

Kikithecat Wed 23-Oct-13 09:39:28

Yes Fruola that sounds about right. Glad to see someone knows their Doc Martin [looks sideways at MrsJay].

Kikithecat Wed 23-Oct-13 09:38:17

Now I like Mark Mylow, and I like Joe Penhale, but who is best? There's only one way to find out...

FruOla Wed 23-Oct-13 09:36:28

Wasn't it PC Mylow's 'stag-do' that went wrong (he was going to marry his new GF who was pregnant, but it turned out he wasn't the father - or something like that)? He and Al went for a hike in the woods, got lost and PC Mylow got bitten by a snake. Al had to find higher ground to get a mobile signal to phone the Doc. The Doc couldn't find them, but the day was saved by the appearance of the gamekeeper?

mrsjay Wed 23-Oct-13 09:32:55

I don't remember him

FruOla Wed 23-Oct-13 09:32:41
Kikithecat Wed 23-Oct-13 09:31:19

Yep, here he is, PC Mark Mylow

FruOla Wed 23-Oct-13 09:28:43

I think you're right, I've just been doing a bit of Googling and it appears there was an ex-wife who turned up.

mrsjay Wed 23-Oct-13 09:27:00

we didnt watch from the start I only know penhale,

lagoonhaze Wed 23-Oct-13 09:25:57

They need to get the poor baby a car seat and not use the pushchair seat chassis!

Kikithecat Wed 23-Oct-13 09:24:38

I think the previous (hapless) PC may have been jilted?

mrsjay Wed 23-Oct-13 09:22:34

I cant remember I remember his wife appeared well his ex wife was that the last series ? but he didnt want her back in the end,

FruOla Wed 23-Oct-13 09:19:16

Wasn't PC Penhale going to get married a couple of series back? But she jilted him before the wedding?

Kikithecat Wed 23-Oct-13 09:09:58

Oh I forgot about Penhale (how couldI??). No he's only annoying because nobody's nice to him! He just needs a good friend and a wife and he'd soon turn normal. Trust me I'm a psychiatrist (and Miss Tishall is a brain surgeon).

mrsjay Wed 23-Oct-13 09:07:16

I liked the ending and bless MArtin and his tear his mothers appearance then stealing the clock was a bit pointless showed her greed though, I feel sorry for him a little bit it isn't his fault he is the way he is, I actually hate the policeman in it he is just rubbish I know it is meant to be comedy but good god he is so annoying

Kikithecat Wed 23-Oct-13 09:02:38

So what did we think of the end of Doc Martin? I thought it was quite touching and realistically uncertain (unlike the rest of the series which was farcical - though I was still glued to it).
Would have like a schmaltzy ending really though!
