Doctors spoilers: Becky Clarke shows Daniel Granger who's boss!

Doctors, Becky Clarke

Surgery practice manager Becky is annoyed Daniel is still against Ayesha's training course. But she has a plan to get the medic on side!

Becky Clarke is daydreaming about her after-hours dalliance with hunky cleaner Enzo D'Agostino.

Unfortunately, business beckons and Dr Daniel Granger is still being a real misery when it comes to allowing nurse Ayesha Lee to take a training course so she can qualify and be allowed to prescribe medication to her patients.

Daniel is old school, and still thinks only doctors should have the authority to write prescriptions, even though he and the rest of the medics at The Mill are too busy at the best of times and Ayesha's extra training would actually be a big help.

But having made her mark on The Mill since she took over from practice manager Mrs Tembe, Becky has an idea how she can convince Daniel to change his mind and get him on board with Ayesha's training opportunity.

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.
