A DRA­MATIC SEA­SON FI­NALE HITS SCREENS THIS WEEK!

New Idea - - News - DOC MARTIN SUN­DAY, 7.40PM, ABC

There’s no doubt about it, Aussies are mad for Doc Martin.

About a mil­lion of us tune in each week to catch up with Martin Clunes, who stars as Dr Martin Elling­ham – the GP with a brusque bed­side man­ner and a pho­bia of blood.

This week, the hugely suc­cess­ful drama set in idyl­lic Corn­wall will come to an end for an­other sea­son.

In a special episode star­ring Sigour­ney Weaver, who plays an Amer­i­can tourist, things come to a dra­matic cli­max.

How­ever, fans need not fret – one fi­nal sea­son of Doc

Martin is slated for next year. Don’t miss it!

Mean­while, an el­derly pa­tient’s al­ler­gic re­ac­tion ex­poses a long­stand­ing rift with his son.

GREAT BRI­TISH RAIL­WAY JOUR­NEYS THURS­DAY, 7.30PM, SBS

Like a warm cup of tea, this show is a com­fort­ing favourite for many Aussies.

Frank Cas­tle (Jon Bern­thal), a for­mer Marine turned vig­i­lante, is ‘The Pu­n­isher’, out to find the crim­i­nals re­spon­si­ble for his fam­ily’s mur­der. But he soon finds him­self en­snared in a mil­i­tary con­spir­acy.

View­ers will say farewell to the doc­tor this Sun­day. But never fear – he’ll be back next year! Anna, Tom, Matt and Hay­den star in Nine’s Fam­ily Food Fight. Fred­die plays a young autis­tic doc­tor in this new must-see show.
