I Thought My OBE Was a Speeding Ticket; Martin Clunes Is Back as TV's Grumpy Doc Martin. MARION MCMULLEN Finds out How It's Taken Him 17 Years to Work with Men Behaving Badly Co-Star Caroline Quentin Again


Byline: MARION MCMULLEN

What was it like being in front of the camera with your Men Behaving Badly mate Caroline Quentin? IT was joyous to work with Caroline again. I see her all the time because we are friends. She stayed with us in the house in Cornwall that we rent during filming.

I have never felt self conscious filming out there in the way that I do in other places. For some reason down there it doesn't bother me. It is like live theatre, but I imagine the crowds cannot hear a word because we are not projecting, we are acting for the camera.

I think our American viewers are more vocal and excited. They are beside themselves when they watch the filming.

What about your fans who call themselves the Clunatics? THEY are a group of Doc Martin fans who keep thanking us for helping them to make great friendships around the world with other fans. They Skype each other.

When episodes go out they have discussions on it and, when there are no episodes going out, they start again and have discussions. …
