Walk-on part up for grabs in Charity auction

Doc Martin star Martin Clunes has given fans of the ITV show the chance to be in the next series.

The hugely popular actor has put up for a charity auction the opportunity to have a walk-on part in Doc Martin, which is filmed in Port Isaac in Cornwall.

The winning bid will help raise will money for The Dorchester Opportunity Group, which supports children with additional needs.

It had been reported that this would be the final series of Doc Martin, however Martin told Digital Spy that the show’s future was undecided. “We don’t just decide to make it on our own, ITV have to commission it.

“And ITV has commissioned the ninth. We don’t have a commission beyond that. Ask me again in two years.”

ITV is still to announce when the ninth series will be shown.

The auction is being held on May 10 at The Bramble Café in Poundbury, Dorset.
