Yes, 'Doc Martin' Season 6 Is Coming to KCET!

Click above. It's the ITV teaser for the sixth season of "Doc Martin." Don't worry; it's not incredibly spoilery, unless you think it's a spoiler to find out that Martin is still grumpy. Think of this as just a taste of the new (and possibly final!) season of the show, which premieres on KCET on February 6 at 8 p.m.

We know you've waited a long time to return to Portwenn, so to make the next two months a little easier, he's how KCET is giving you an extra dose of Martin Clunes.

Beginning Thursday, Dec. 5, at 8 p.m., KCET will start airing the fifth season of "Doc Martin" as a lead-in to the sixth. (And if you need to catch up on episodes before that, check out our recaps.)

The "Good Martin/Bad Martin" programming block continues for the next four weeks, with the final four episodes of the "nice" Martin Clunes sitcom, "William and Mary," which airs directly after "Doc Martin." The final episode of "William and Mary" airs Thursday, Dec. 26.

On Jan. 2 at 8 p.m., we're premiering "Doc Martin & The Legend of the Cloutie," a 2003 movie that has Martin playing Dr. Bamford, a sort of proto-Dr. Martin Ellingham. (Get the background on this here.) Watch a preview:

After the completion of "William and Mary," KCET air Martin Clunes specials after each Thursday night airing of "Doc Martin."

  • On Jan. 9 at 8:46 p.m., it's "Martin Clunes: Man to Manta," which features Clunes swims with the sea's most enormous and enigmatic creatures.
  • On Jan.16 at 8:46 p.m., it's "Martin Clunes: Lemurs of Madagascar," in which Clunes examines the plight of this rare and endearing species.
  • On Jan. 23 at 8:46 p.m., it's "Martin Clunes: Heavy Horsepower," which focuses on Clunes' efforts to train two Clydesdales to work on his farm.
  • And finally on Jan. 30 at 8:46 p.m., it's the premiere of "Doc Martin Revealed," a behind-the-scenes look at the sixth season of "Doc Martin." Viewers get inside access to the actors and crew as they film sequences on the balcony at Large's Restaurant and in the nearby pub that doubles for the Crab & Lobster.
