[22.42 - French Time] French private network TF1 aired tonight the first two episodes of the local adaptation of ITV1's Doc Martin, with Thierry Lhermitte (The Dinner Game) as Dr Martin Le Foll.

Doc Martin, a 6 x 52-minute series, will be during three weeks in TF1's usual primetime Monday night comedy slot and we'll see tomorrow how it translates in terms of ratings. But judging from the couple of episodes shown today, the atmosphere of Brittany suits rather well to the iconic character.

This third adaptation of the format sold by Digital Rights Group (distributor of the original show, starring Martin Clunes) is produced by Ego Productions. A German version, Doktor Martin, ran in 2007 and 2009 on pubcaster ZDF. And Spanish viewers have their own version, the excellent Doctor Mateo, since 2009 (on Antena 3).
