Starting September 21st, Acorn TV subscribers will be able to stream new Doc Martin Series 8 episodes, the day after the UK broadcast. This is the first time that the show has ever been offered to fans in the US and Canada so close to the UK premiere! Acorn TV will premiere episodes each week until November 9th, at which point the entire series will be bingeable. There is also a bonus behind-the-scenes episode, It’s Always Sunny in Portwenn!
