Calling All Doc Martin Superfans: Submit your vote!
We have the unique opportunity to bring Doc Martinseasons 8 and 9—to PBS Lubbock!

Described as "one of the funniest and most entertaining shows on television,” Doc Martin is an internationally popular British television dramedy series that follows the life of a brilliant but socially awkward GP in the small fishing village of Portwenn.

His abrupt tactless personality often clashes with Portwenn's eccentric tight-knit community—including his patients, colleagues, and love interest. The series explores Martin's struggles to adapt, maintain his medical practice, and build relationships.

Would you be interested in helping us bring these seasons to Lubbock? Let us know!
