As I mentioned earlier this week, for those ‘Clunatics’ in the States who have been waiting (im)patiently for the return of Doc Martin, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Not only is the light shining brightly with series 7 set to air on public television stations beginning in January 2016, there is a brand new behind-the-scenes special, Doc Martin – Seven Grumpy Seasons, headed our way in December to wet our collective appetites, courtesy of our colleagues at American Public Television.
Working extremely hard on your behalf, Eric Luskin and David Rubinsohn traveled to Port Isaac this past Summer to spend time on the set of Doc Martin during the filming of series 7 to produce the upcoming Doc Martin – Seven Grumpy Seasons special. Having had the opportunity to do the same the year before on the set of Father Brown producing a ‘making-of’ special, Father Brown: Saving Souls, Solving Crimes, I can attest to the fact that while the work was hard and the hours were long, I’ll bet both Eric and David had more fun than the law allows also.
To give Tellyspotting readers a bit of insight into his trip to “Portwenn”, APT’s Eric Luskin found time between the long days of filming and the even longer nights in the pub to file this report from the picturesque seaside village of Port Isaac.
