Ayesha wonders what she's got herself into when surgery colleague Al invites her to join him to try out some Live Action Role Playing!

Since Dr Al Haskey is a big sci-fi/fantasy fan, it sounds like Live Action Role Playing (aka LARPing) would be right up his street!

So when Al tells surgery nurse Ayesha Lee he is trying to get out more and has been contacted by some guys hounding him to get involved in their live action role play, he somehow manages to convince Ayesha to give it a go, too!

However, Ayesha is far too cool-for-school! So when she finds out it involves pretending to be a fantasy character within a fictional setting and interacting with other people pretending to be fantasy characters in a fictional setting, but which is also the real world, she decides someone else should go in her place. But who?

Meanwhile, Mrs Tembe is still in a world of her own after vicar Gordon Clement's surprise proposal of marriage. So the surgery practice manager doesn't even bat an eyelid when receptionist Karen Hollins reports that the sign outside The Mill has been vandalised with graffiti.

Elsewhere, Daniel Granger finds himself caught in the middle of clashing male egos when two alpha male businessmen Charles Digby-Harrington and Nigel Sharpe cause a commotion at the surgery, after one of them is left with an embarrassing injury after a highly competitive game of squash.

Doctors continues weekdays at 1:45pm on BBC One

Simon has long been a fan of soap operas, and especially loves OVER-THE-TOP plots involving evil twins, hair-pulling catfights and natural disasters. Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave? Or when Krystle Carrington got locked in the attic and replaced by look-a-like Rita in Dynasty?!

Simon has written for a variety of TV and childrens’ magazines/websites including Inside Soap, Nickelodeon, What’s On TV, Radio Times, Metro, Girl Talk, Disney Girl, Toxic! and Digital Spy. He has reported LIVE from the red carpet at The British Soap Awards interviewing glammed-up stars from soapland, and hosted a Facebook LIVE session for Metro with Home and Away legend Ray Meagher (Alf "Stone the flamin' crows!" Stewart) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Aussie soap.

Simon is also co-author of The Treasures Of Coronation Street (Carlton Books)

And the writer and director of (very!) low budget fright flick, Midsummer Night's EVIL and the sequel webisodes series, The Hatchet Woods HORROR.
