Critic Reviews for Doc Martin Season 8

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

While very much a familiar sort of construction, it is exquisitely made, funny and maddening at once and always nice to look at.

Feb 5, 2019 | Full Review…

A tragedy stuck inside a comedy, as so many fine British comedies have ever been at heart.

Feb 5, 2019 | Full Review…

It's so gentle that it could end by simply nodding off.

Feb 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There was a gentle laugh or two amid the stunning scenery -- which is all we seem to require of this enduringly endearing show.

Feb 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

At the top of its game. So much so it would put car mechanics out of business.

Feb 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The show's reliance on its stock characters has worn thin.
