In the aftermath of what happened with his ex Zara Carmichael on Doctors, Daniel Granger decides to prove his commitment to girlfriend Becky Clarke...
Daniel Granger (played by Matthew Chambers) and his girlfriend Becky Clarke (Ali Bastian) get back to work after another romantic weekend away on Doctors (1:45pm on BBC One, see our TV Guide for full listings).
But Becky remains unaware that Daniel is hiding a guilty secret, involving his soon-to-be ex-wife Zara Carmichael (Elisabeth Dermot Walsh)...
Meanwhile, Zara enjoys seeing Daniel squirm, when she warns him how easy it would be to "accidentally" let slip to Becky about the unexpected turn of events at the work conference Daniel and Zara attended together last week!
However, is Zara's latest round of game playing about to backfire on her?
Fed-up with all the game playing, point-scoring and one-upmanship that has always been attached to his relationship with Zara, Daniel decides to prove his commitment to Becky with a BIG romantic gesture.
Armed with a ring-sized box, is Daniel about to pop the question to Becky? And if so, how will Zara react?
Meanwhile, surgery receptionist Karen Hollins (Jan Pearson) is excited at the news her daughter Imogen (Charlie Clemmow) is returning to Letherbridge for a more permanent stay, to take up her role as Creative Producer for the Letherbridge Art Fest.
Karen is still hopeful she can play Cupid between Imogen and Dr Sid Vere (Ashley Rice) after their previous fling this summer.
But could Karen be getting her hopes up? Are Imogen and Sid really interested in pursuing an official romance?
Sid has other matters on his mind, when he meets patient Floyd Abraham (Adam Slynn) who has secretly booked himself into the Minor Surgery Unit to have a vasectomy without telling his girlfriend Natalie Jordan (Sacharissa Claxton).
But what's the REAL reason why Floyd does not want to have a child with Natalie?
Doctors continues weekdays at 1:45pm on BBC One
