Jimmi is convinced his estranged dad Alun is behind his current stay in prison on Doctors. But policeman Rob has his doubts...

Jimmi Clay (played by Adrian Lewis Morgan) is now convinced his own estranged dad, Alun is behind his downfall on Doctors (1:45pm on BBC One, see our TV Guide for full listings).

Jimmi has been in prison since Christmas, after police unexpectedly found a stash of cocaine in the boot of his car. But WHO put it there and WHY?

Given their toxic relationship and the fact Alun physically attacked Jimmi in the past, the medic is certain his dad is to blame.

However, as policeman Rob Hollins (Chris Walker) digs deeper, he's not so sure Alun is the guilty culprit, meaning Jimmi is going to remain behind bars for the moment...

Meanwhile, Ruhma Carter (Bharti Patel) and Zara Carmichael (Elisabeth Dermot Walsh) are off to their first British Sign Language.

However, it's not long before Zara's competitive and ambitious side surfaces and she wants to fast track to the Advanced Class!
