In 2007, he made his Doctor Who debut when he guest-starred as villain Zeus in the Big Finish BBC Digital Radio 7 drama Immortal Beloved.

CHRISTOPHER STEVENS reviews last night's TV

www.dailymail.co.uk, September 8, 2022
CHRISTOPHER STEVENS: For anyone who still thinks of Martin Clunes as the irresponsible, boozy lad Gary in Men Behaving Badly, it's an uncomfortable jolt to realise he's been playing Dr Ellingham in Doc Martin (ITV) for nearly two decades... and has now hung up his stethoscope. Not that the doc has retired. He's just ceased to practise as a GP and hangs around the house all day, mending clocks and getting under his wife's feet. Clunes is 60 and this is expected to be the final series for the show. That's a great shame, because his character is as entertaining as ever - and the drama continues to attract big guest stars.
