Doc Martin fans have been waiting patiently for season 2 and unfortunately this has been delayed due to Covid.
The ITV Favorite’s final streak was supposed to end this year but has been postponed to 2022 due to Covid-19 restrictions making the show difficult to do.
However, there could be some good news about the future of the iconic drama …
Doc Martin spin-off?
Ian McNeice, who plays the plumber Bert Large, has teased that there might still be life on the show.
He claims show bosses would be “foolish” not to consider secession for his character.
“Oh definitely. I think we’d be stupid not to do that, ”he said Go tours.

“When you go to shows that have been very successful, there is always the possibility of a spin-off.
“Like Breaking Bad, just fools and horses, cheers. There are a lot of people who like Bert and Al’s characters, maybe there is a spin-off for them. It is a hope!
“But I think Buffalo Pictures, who own it, wouldn’t want to do it. I don’t know if they would give up the rights and have someone else pick them up.
He added, “I’ll keep my ears and eyes open when we get to the end of Series 10 to see if there’s a chance.”
The ninth series ended in November 2019 with an explosive cliffhanger and since then fans have been demanding answers in the form of further episodes.

Why is Series 10 the last for Doc Martin?
Last September Martin Clunes said, “We loved doing nine Doc Martin series.
“When we first launched the series in 2004, we could never have imagined how much our loyal viewers would like the grumpy Doc so much.
“The series has enthusiastic fans both in the UK and around the world. We are happy that Doc Martin has topped the ratings every time. However, after sixteen years, we feel that it is time to say goodbye.
“In 2021 we will shoot the tenth and final series. We’re really looking forward to going back to Cornwall to film it. “
Although Martin loved his time in the role, he said in an earlier interview with I Heart British TV that he would “likely retire” after filming next season.
