Usually, the scowl above is what's constantly present on Dr. Martin Ellingham's face on the KCET series DOC MARTIN. What hit our inbox most recently...

Oh yeah, that's a smile you see.

So why is three-time Oscar nominee Sigourney Weaver beaming next to DOC MARTIN's Martin Clunes? Yes, we've got an answer. One for you to set your watches and DVRs for...

DOC MARTIN will welcome the film icon and award-winning actress Sigourney Weaver (Avatar, Aliens) as a guest star in an upcoming episode airing Thurs., Feb. 25 at 8 p.m.PT.

In the episode entitled Facta Non Verba, Weaver plays an American tourist who visits the sleepy seaside community of Portwenn where she is sent to Martin's practice to get a prescription refilled.

Once there, she argues with the Doc over what kind of medication she needs and is appalled at the way the doctor speaks to his assistant, ultimately offering up advice on how to stand up to him.

All of this is icing on the cake for Martin after he and his wife tell their therapist about a recently failed date night, which leads to the couple questioning their ultimate compatibility.


Here's a sneak peek:

We got a bit of a behind-the-scenes scoop from KCET.

Turns out, Sigourney Weaver is a long time fan of the DOC MARTIN series and was ecstatic to have the opportunity to guest star alongside her friend Selina Cadell aka DOC MARTIN's Mrs. Tishell.

Wanna catch all of tonight's antics, and perhaps plot out the best spots to frequent when visiting Portwenn yourself? (We've been talking about doing so since this post.) Tune into KCET at 8 p.m. PST.

Juan - I love doc Martin. It is so Brit.
Karen Langston - I am not very good with TV shows as I do not watch much TV. I am curious is Doc Martin the inventor of the Doc Martin shoes and boots? I have never heard of him before (I know I live in a cave!) Sigourney Weaver I do recognize from here Alien movies. She is an incredible actor for sure.
