Martin Clunes found a Doc Martin role for Men Behaving Badly co-star to have sweet reunion | The Sun
MARTIN Clunes had an ingenious way to reconnect with Men Behaving Badly co-star Caroline Quentin.
For well over a decade, the likes of Martin Clunes, Caroline Quentin, Leslie Ash and Neil Morrisey had BBC viewers in stitches in sitcom, Men Behaving Badly.
Caroline recently joined Alan Titchmarsh on ITV’s Love Your Weekend to shed light on how the cast still gets on nearly 20 years since the show went off the air.
And she made no secret of her fondness for Martin – and how he made sure they got to spend more time together while he filmed ITV’s Doc Martin.
“Do you keep up with Martin Clunes?” Alan asked Caroline during Sunday’s show.
“You know, you can’t get away from him really!” Alan quipped before Caroline revealed: “No, he’s my best friend still.”

“Is he?” a surprised Alan weighed in before Caroline explained how Martin facilitated her stint on the medical drama-comedy.
“I see him all the time, yep, I saw him a couple of weeks ago,” she began.
“Of course, I’ve been in Doc Martin as well… we weren’t seeing much of each other so he very kindly found a role that I could go and play.”
However, it wasn’t just an on-screen role that showed how Martin went above and beyond to reunite with Caroline.
Caroline added: "Then we lived together while I was filming, so we actually got to spend a bit more quality time together.”

Her first appearance came in 2015 before she returned briefly in 2017 and 2019.
