'Doc Martin: Series 7' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Mon Oct 5, 2015 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The seventh season of the quirky series heads to Blu-ray this December.

In an early announcement to retailers, Acorn Media is preparing 'Doc Martin: Series 7' for Blu-ray on December 8.

Years of grumpiness have finally caught up with Dr. Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes, Men Behaving Badly). With his marriage in trouble, Martin finally agrees to see a therapist. He may have met his match in the young and smart Dr. Rachel Timoney (Emily Bevan, The Casual Vacancy), but can she cure his caustic personality and crippling blood phobia? And more importantly, can she help bring Louisa (Caroline Catz, Murder in Suburbia) back to Martin?

If that weren't enough, Martin contends with the declining health of his aunt Ruth (Emmy winner Eileen Atkins, Cranford), the Large family's calamitous business endeavors, and the return of a know-it-all vet (Caroline Quentin, Blue Murder) who is the daughter of the GP that Martin replaced. Also in this series, Oscar nominee Sigourney Weaver (Alien films, Avatar) guest stars as an American tourist visiting the scenic Cornish village. Can Martin make time for his wife and son while dealing with Portwenn's idiosyncratic inhabitants?

Specs have yet to be revealed, but the release will include nine featurettes and a photo gallery.
