In a statement, Doc Martin stars Martin Clunes and Philippa Braithwaite said: We have loved making nine series of Doc Martin.  When we launched the series in 2004 we could never have imagined how much our loyal viewers would take to the grumpy Doc like they have. 

“The series has avid fans both in the UK and throughout the world and we are thrilled that Doc Martin has topped the ratings every time.

 “However, after sixteen years we now feel that the time has come to say goodbye to Portwenn.
