8x 60-minute episodes will be produced in 2011, as the series goes into production every two years due to Martin Clunes commitments to other projects like the BBC's Reggie Perrin. France will have its own version of the show's format, adapted by Ego Productions for TF1. Docteur Martin will star Thierry Lhermitte and filming begins next week in Brittany.

Doc Martin is produced by Buffalo Pictures in association with Homerun Productions for ITV1. (Press Release) (Docteur Martin)
