Was last night's episode with the wedding the final one for the season?

Yep, the synopsis on Comcast said season finale. Lovely ending but you just know more bad things coming next season.

I loved the fantastic happy grin on William's face when he saw his Mom and Kate on the dancefloor.

And the final episode shoulda been 2 hours long!

It was brilliant to end the episode and season that way, with each couple asleep together the morning after the wedding. I loved the scene of John and Judith asleep in separate chairs with their heads turned away from each other, lol. This is one of the best series ever conceived and written, imo.

Speaking of British...is anyone having a hard time getting Gillian's speech? Sounds like she has a mouthful of marbles. I'm missing a third of her words. Maybe I need a hearing aid....or is that unclear diction a dialect of some kind? Just wondering.
I don't think it's the programs so much as the schedule NPR chooses to air them here.

BTW, no more Doc Martin, I believe. I'm pretty sure I read that this was the last season. If so, it was a nice way to end, I thought.

Gillian's Yorkshire. It's not an easy dialect to understand.

Only one word comes to mind when I see John: lout.

Yes, we must be getting treated to one of the best series ever on tv. This last episode left us feeling good and wanting more, it resolved a lot of loose threads, the venue for the wedding was perfect, etc. etc. etc. Can't say enough good about it.

I loved it when the relatives who lived in NZ? weren't coming but they actually did show up and were in the same room talking on their cell phone with our heroes thinking they were still in NZ.

I also loved it when Robbie and Gillian got back together, as they should be. Something is still left to be resolved and that is the murder and if Gillian can ever get over it. Since they keep bringing it up, there must be some reason.

So her speech is regional dialect, and not a reflection of education?

Oh, one thing I am picking up is the constant use of the word "right" in response to what someone else says or in response to a not-so-great situation. I actually enjoy that (mostly coming from Caroline) and I wonder if "right" in Brit vocabulary means 'OK, I'll go with the flow'—or some other unpublishable response??
In the UK, "right" can mean everything from enthusiastic agreement to disagreement/criticism. It's all in how you say it.

They are - they're insipid. So's our instant coffee, compared to what you can get in Mexico or Europe.

As posted earlier. A marvelous last season episode. Couldn't have been done better in my mind.

Only one concern for future episodes. When questioning Cecilia about losing the bungalow because Alan didn't act in a timely manner and that she obviously hadn't "trained him well enough", she replies: "Well not yet." (with a smile)

That seemed a bit telling to me. Hope I'm wrong.
