Becky is loving playing happy familes with Daniel on Doctors. But is Daniel's bitter ex, Zara out to burst her love bubble?
Things seem to getting rather cosy between Dr Daniel Granger (played by Matthew Chambers) and surgery practice manager Becky Clarke (Ali Bastian) on Doctors. But Daniel’s soon-to-be ex-wife Zara Carmichael (Elisabeth Dermot Walsh) is definitely NOT a fan of their blossoming workplace romance!
Zara has attempted to play nice but is secretly miffed that Becky has started playing happy families with Daniel’s and HER young son, Joe.
Zara downloads to colleague Emma Reid (Dido Miles) that she is fuming over Becky telling her what a credit Joe is to her and Daniel. NEWSFLASH! Zara already knows that, she is Joe’s mum!
Can Emma convince angry Zara to play it cool around Daniel and Becky in the workplace and avoid Zara saying or doing something she may later regret?
Meanwhile, surgery receptionist Valerie Pitman (Sarah Moyle) has been left bereft by a TRAGIC turn of events on the homefront.
With Valerie unable to face going into work after a sleepless night, a backlog of work falls to Karen Hollins (Jan Pearson) to pick-up. And although Karen is sympathetic to Valerie’s cause, it’s not long before overworked Karen’s sympathetic mask starts to slip!
Meanwhile, the staff have mixed reactions to Valerie’s tragic news with Al dismissing her grief as “ridiculous”. But he soon regrets his cruel comments when Valerie overhears him and Al is left feeling guilty he has hurt his friend in her time of need…
Elsewhere in Letherbridge, Rob Hollins (Chris Walker) investigates a support group set up by victims of a serial burglar called “Grave Robber”.
The thief targets bereaved families by finding out when they will be out at the funeral of their deceased loved ones and then burgling their homes.
But could it be, “Grave Robber” is actually a member of the support group? Will Rob be able to unmask the villain?
