Doc Martin’s eighth season comes to Arizona PBS

The popular British drama is finally back! “Doc Martin” returns to Arizona PBS on Saturdays at 7 p.m., beginning June 15.

Season eight finds Doc Martin and Louisa living together again with their infant son, James Henry, in Portwenn. However, even after repairing their relationship, their problems are far from over. Louisa finds herself juggling too many responsibilities, and considers a career change. Martin contends with his nemesis, a dog named Buddy, to whom his son has grown attached. The stress of taking care of an infant, especially during the teething stage, doesn’t help matters either!

Meanwhile, Portwenn is abuzz as Al and Morwenna are planning their wedding. The Larges hope to profit from the festivities, but when Martin’s Aunt Ruth considers selling the family farm, her decision causes trouble for the Larges’ business endeavors. As some relationships bloom and others falter, can Martin cope with all the changes — or will he risk the fragile accord he’s forged with his family?

In addition to the regular cast, including Martin Clunes, Caroline Catz, Dame Eileen Atkins and Ian McNeice, guest stars for the season include a return of Sigourney Weaver as an American tourist and “Downton Abbey’s” Kevin Doyle.

Fans will be pleased to hear that a ninth season of the show is currently in production, slated to air in the U.K. later this year. While we don’t have a projected airdate here, rest assured that you’ll find it on Arizona PBS.
