While I get my act in gear for a proper series of posts, here's a quiz for you. I recently photographed this property. It's the fictional home of a long-running British TV character - anyone recognise it? The series is also aired in the States - in fact, I first saw it in America.
No prize, other than the vast satisfaction of identifying it.
Edit - well, that didn't take long. But have a few more photos from the same location. Here's Bert Large's restaurant:
And here's another of the Doc's house:
The Doc's house in context - it's really close to Large's restaurant:
Looking across to the other side of the harbour:
Fabulous place, Port Isaac.
Doc Martin. Gotta be.ReplyDelete
My wife, who watches a lot of British shows (from here in the US), guessed it as the home of Doc Martin.ReplyDelete
That there is Doc Martin's house, right? It always looks weirdly Lilliputian for some reason.ReplyDelete
Doc Martin it is. Port Isaac, Cornwall - well done!ReplyDelete
Chances are Amy Pond's house is local to me - most of the Dr Who locations are - but I don't know where it is.
I was down in Cornwall for the first time ever this summer, what a wonderful place! Only had one day spare away from sailing lessons and it was either Port Isaac or the Eden Project. I went for the Blake's 7 clay pits :pReplyDelete
As a Cornish native, welcome to our county! I can highly recommend you also check out 'Kynance Cove' on the lizard for it's natural beauty and the Helford river for it's.... natural beauty. I'm sorry I can't tell you about all the secret woods and beaches in public, but get off the beaten track and there are some real gems around. Enjoy Kernow!ReplyDelete
Doc Martin is our favorite show here in the States. My wife and I stream it online.ReplyDelete
Such a beautiful part of the English country. I wander if it was inundated by tourists due to the popularity of the show. Did you know Alastair that Martin Clunes had a very early (possibly earliest) TV appearance in Doctor Who 'Snakedance' during the 80s. He also did a great documentary on the Islands of Britain, travelled across the Shetlands and Hebrides, fascinating places.ReplyDelete
Matt: yes, I've seen that clip of the youthful Clunes in full New Romantic garb.ReplyDelete
AshRolls - I was raised in Cornwall, as it happens - my family moved down from Wales shortly after I was born, so to some extent it was a homecoming. We lived in and around Truro. I hadn't been back in nearly 40 years but I immediately recognised bits of Truro and certainly the look of the high and windswept countryside. It certainly is a marvellous part of the world.
I would love to visit Doc Martin's house, although I don't think I'd eat Bert Large's food.ReplyDelete
Thank God for Netflix here in the states. I also use a VPN to use iPlayer and watch all my favorite British shows. I'm also watching "Rebus" now. Great show!
No one in their right mind would eat Bert Large's food.ReplyDelete
Never seen Rebus, oddly enough.
