Al attempts to help a student Holly, whose dodgy boyfriend David is pressuring her to help him find more students he can sell drugs to

Dr Al Haskey is not impressed when he meets a student, Holly Plummer, whose drug dealing boyfriend David 'Blane' Dorberry is putting pressure on her to help advertise his "services" around the university campus.

Blane wants Holly to attend a Drugs Support Meeting and hand out fake business cards which advertise a student helpline but are really connected to his drug dealing business. Holly fears for the welfare of her housemate Shawna Raitt who attends the meetings but is struggling to stay clean.

Al is determined to shutdown Blane. But can he get enough evidence to prove Blane is about to distribute drugs on campus?

Simon Timblick

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.
