Husband and wife Martin Clunes and Philippa Braithwaite have managed to turn media success to business advantage. With a track record as an actor and independent producer respectively, they founded Buffalo Pictures in 1998 with £150,000 of their own funds to make television dramas, documentaries and films. Titles such as the popular comedy Men Down Under and the ITV drama Doc Martin, starring Clunes himself, have increased sales 89% a year from £486,000 in 2001 to £3.3m in 2004.
