Behind the Scenes of 'Doc Martin' Season 5 Premieres Tonight

One of the highlights of 2011 for me was a mid-summer trip to Cornwall, England, the region where KCET's hit series "Doc Martin" is filmed (read about that trip here).

Martin Clunes, who stars as Doctor Martin Ellingham, and producer Philippa Braithwaite (Clunes' wife) approved a behind-the-scenes visit. Forget the eleven-hour plane ride, followed by a nearly six-hour train ride to get to this beautiful area of England -- it was all worth it. I loved spending time with the amazing cast. And walking through the narrow winding lanes of Port Isaac (or 'Portwenn' as it's known on the TV show) was a treat I'll never forget.

We've created eight stories about the making of "Doc Martin" season 5. The new episodes will start airing in April, 2012, but we'll premiere one behind-the-scenes story every week at over the next two months. And as a reminder, you can always see "Doc Martin" in southern California exclusively on KCET - Thursday nights at 8:00 P.M.
