Posted by Cassie Gage on

The seventh season of the international hit series DOC MARTIN premieres Thursday, Feb. 18, at 9 p.m. CT on the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (OETA)’s OETA HD channel.


Doc Martin stars BAFTA winner Martin Clunes (Arthur & George, Men Behaving Badly) as Dr. Martin Ellingham, an ill-mannered G.P. living in the fictional Cornish village of Portwenn. Series 7 finds a heartbroken Martin ready to make some changes and win his family back following Louisa’s (Caroline Catz) departure at the end of the last season. Also returning are Dame Eileen Atkins (Aunt Ruth), Selina Cadell (Mrs. Tichell), Ian McNeice (Bert Large), Joe Absolom (Al Large), John Marquez (PC Penhale), and Jessica Ransom (Morwenna).


Guest stars include Tristan Sturrock (Saving Grace) and Caroline Quentin (Jonathan Creek, Men Behaving Badly), with a cameo appearance from Sigourney Weaver (Alien). Releasing concurrently with the new season is the complementary Doc Martin Series 7 Filler Package, which contains 10 short vignettes of cast members, production staff, townspeople, and fans discussing Doc and Louisa, baby James Henry, the on- and off-screen bond between the cast and crew, the possibility of an eighth season, and more.
