Revealed: The naughty names in Doc Martin

How writers sneak in cheeky gags

comedyThe writers of Doc Martin have been sneaking rude names into the script.

Patients who visit the medic’s surgery in the fictional town of Portwenn have included  Anita Bush, Dan Gleballs,  Ben Twilley, and Drew Peacock.

And Paul Mycock is set to appear in a future episode.

Less cheekily, other patients have included Noah Cant and Teresa Green; while celebrities names have also been appropriated – including an old woman called  Alice Cooper and a teenage girl called Mel Gibson.

The names were spotted by fans who posted them on the Digital Spy fan forums.
