It looks like Doc Martin is finally retiring. RadioTimes reports the ITV series will end with season nine in 2018.
Created by Dominic Minghella, the long-running UK medical dramedy stars Martin Clunes as the only doctor in a small Cornish village. The cast also includes Caroline Catz, Ian McNeice, Joe Absolom, John Marquez, and Selina Cadell.
Clunes spoke to RadioTimes, confirming that season nine will be the last for Doc Martin. Season eight is slated to debut later this year, and the final season is expected to premiere in autumn 2018.
We start making [series 8] in spring and it’ll probably be on air in the autumn. So [series 8] is the second to last.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Doc Martin? Are you sad the show is ending?
One great show in eternity
Really sad to see the show. It was one of the few really good family shows. Nice scenery, good actors and good wholesome plots. Rethink leaving DOC , we need you to keep the family shows alive and well!1
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed every episode,and are still hoping to see season 9 at some point soon.

I’m sad to see Doc Martin ending. He is so abrupt & rude, but I feel sorry because his parents never gave him the love every child needs growing up.
You can’t cancel Doc Martin it is clean honest fun so rare these days. We look forward to watching even the reruns here in the states across the pond, not having new Doc Martin’s to look forward to is simply unthinkable.
I love this show and am so disappointed it is cancelled. Please come back for another season.
