ITV has just announced that Martin Clunes will start filming the fifth series of Doc Martin in Cornwall this week. His French counterpart, Thierry Lhermitte, will begin filming the second series of TF1's Doc Martin in May.

After a two-year break to allow him to pursue other projects, Martin Clunes is back as Dr. Martin Ellingham, the grumpy GP of the picturesque (and fictional) village of Portwenn, in the ITV1 hit dramedy. 8 X 60-minute episodes will be filmed around the magnificent settings of the North Cornwall coast.

The French Doc Martin, Docteur Martin Le Foll (Thierry Lhermitte), will start filming the second series of the excellent Gaullic adaptation in the equally magnificent South Finistère from May to June and from August to September - with studio sequences filmed in between.

TF1's Doc Martin is the third adaptation of the format sold by Digital Rights Group (distributor of the original with Clunes) and 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, Doctor Mateo, since 2009.
