Doctors spoilers: Dr Heston Carter makes a shock confession!

Doctors, Heston Carter, Rob Hollins, DI Mark Addison, Ruhma Carter

Heston has displayed signs of violent behaviour in the past. Could the stuffy medic have snapped again and run down Tarks?

Ruhma's worst fears come true when the police arrive at the Carter house to arrest her hubby Heston in connection with the hit-and-run horror. But is Heston really guilty?

The upstanding doctor at first refuses to answer Rob and Addison's questions, just responding: "No comment!" But he eventually reveals what happened when he came face-to-face with Tarks, who taunted Heston over not being Alia and Shak's real father. Did Heston see red and track down Tarks later that night for payback?

Meanwhile, Ruhma is overwhelmed with guilt over all the trouble her family has brought to Heston's doorstep. And her teenage son Shak does nothing to improve matters when he makes a startling revelation of his own! But could Shak's bombshell help clear Heston's name?

Elsewhere in Letherbridge, Daniel and Zara get competitive over their parenting skills, unaware they have both been outsmarted by their crafty son, Joe!

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.
