Rob finds himself playing peacekeeper on Doctors after his wife Karen falls out with their daughter Imogen over her fling with Dr Sid Vere.
Karen Hollins (played by Jan Pearson) got on her high horse in Doctors (opens in new tab) when she found out her visiting daughter Imogen (Charlie Clemmow) has been having a fling with Dr Sid Vere (Ashley Rice).
Karen is not convinced Sid is the right man for her daughter, considering his one-night stand with boss Zara Carmichael (Elisabeth Dermot Walsh), which led to the break-up of Zara's marriage to Daniel Granger (Matthew Chambers).
However, Imogen has basically told Karen to mind her own business and she'll date who she wants!
Karen is not happy she has fallen out with Imogen over Sid, and turns to her policeman husband Rob (Chris Walker) for advice.
Rob finds himself caught-in-the-middle, as he attempts to heal the bust-up between Karen and Imogen before Imogen leaves Letherbridge and returns to London.
Elsewhere, Ruhma Carter (Bharti Patel) is emotional as she helps her student daughter Alia Hanif (Lisa Ambalavanar) pack her bags ready to move to Glasgow to start university.
Ruhma wants to spend as much time as she can with Alia before her daughter departs, and convinces Alia to come along to her art class.
But mum and daughter are both in for a SHOCK when they clap eyes on the latest model at the life drawing class. But WHO is it?
Meanwhile, surgery receptionist Valerie Pitman (Sarah Moyle) discovers her neighbour Tom Griffiths (Lewis Cope) has BIG women trouble when Tom's ex-girlfriend Polly Spooner (Aisha Toussaint) causes a scene at the Campus Surgery and accuses Tom's new girlfriend Jude Olsen (Cat White) of befriending her just so she could steal her boyfriend!
But is there more to this love triangle than meets the eye? Leave it to Valerie to find out!
Doctors continues weekdays at 1:45pm on BBC One
