Storyline of the 10th season of Doc Martin

At the end of the last series ofDr. MartinIn 2019, after having his medical career under scrutiny from the General Medical Council due to his blood phobia, the doctor decided he would step down as Portwenn's general practitioner. In this final series of Doc Martin, Doc struggles to overcome his phobia and begins to wonder if he made the right decision in retiring. He and his wife Louisa also welcomed a baby daughter, Mary Elizabeth, a four-year-old sister of James Henry, so we think her home will be pretty noisy on this series.

As Louisa pursues her new career as a child counselor at her former practice, the Doc literally stays behind and holds the baby and indulges in his hobby of fixing clocks at the kitchen table. But does he really want his old job back?

"The Doc quit last series and when we started the new season he was left with the baby - literally! – because he and Louisa had a second child, daughter Mary Elizabeth,” explains Martin Clunes. "He's starting to wonder if he made the right decision in retiring!"

There was also some new footage of Martin standing next to a car on the edge of a cliff! It's unclear what exactly happens in the scene, but there's also a shot of a woman at the bottom of the cliff.
