  1. Hello Phillipa,

    Do you think now COVID is receding Martin? Can you reinstate your very successful show which you used to have on your farm at Beaminster?

  2. During covid-19 lockdown I enjoyed viewing the TV series ‘Doc Martin’ again. Thank you. And it brought to mind a book I recently read, a book I found entertaining and very interesting:

    Rockhopper Copper by Conrad Glass.

    Told by the Inspector of Police on the remote island of Tristan da Cuna there are stories of a volcano, a variety of penguins, an albatross(or two), passing ships, Christmas at the potato patche’s and hidden treasure, among other stories.

    Dear Phillipa,

    I didn’t realize that you were the producer of many so films that I’ve admired. I’m writing to you because I have an unpublished manuscript (finished) that you might like to read. I am not a scriptwriter, but I’m told that my ms would make a great TV series. If you are interested in reading it, I could send it to you in Word or PDF, whichever you preferred.

    Yours very sincerely,
