Martin Clunes might play a grumpy, irritable medic in TV’s Doc Martin but the actor was all smiles when he popped into our Wimborne branch yesterday. He was looking for a caravan for one of his farm employees to use during the lambing season. After seeing a Fleetwood Countryside caravan, Martin announced it was perfect and bought it. Although he’s rarely off our screens—he’s been exploring Islands of Australia for ITV recently and is about to head back to Cornwall for more Doc Martin filming—he took time out to sign a book for Lee Hudson, of our Wimborne branch. “When he came into to collect the caravan he signed my daughters ‘Room on the Broom’ book as he did the voice of the dog in the cartoon and it’s her favourite book,” explained Lee.
