Who is in the cast of Doc Martin season 9?
Martin Ellingham – Martin Clunes

Veteran star Clunes is no stranger to screens and is best known for Doc Martin and Men Behaving Badly.
This year alone he’s starred in the likes of ITV crime drama Manhunt and BBC sitcom Warren.
Reflecting on working on season nine, Clunes said: “It was great coming back to Cornwall to play Doc Martin after such a busy time playing different characters in Vanity Fair, Manhunt, Warren, and presenting Islands of America in the last year.
“Doc Martin is so familiar and that is nice. He’s a character I enjoy playing and I still have stuff to do with him. I like the machinations of the medical procedures, I have always enjoyed those. I love Caroline and I love Dodger (Buddy).”
