Things get a bit weird on Doctors (opens in new tab) when Dr Emma Reid (played by Dido Miles) finds herself being questioned by policeman Rob Hollins (Chris Walker) on suspicion of murder.

And then the pair start kissing!

What?!

Don't panic. Married man Rob doesn't really cheat on his surgery receptionist wife Karen Hollins (Jan Pearson). Emma wakes up and it's all just a dream. Phew!

But what does it all mean? When Emma confides in colleague Zara Carmichael (Elisabeth Dermot Walsh) about her sexy dreams, Zara finds it hilarious! But can they keep it all quiet from Karen?

Meanwhile, Karen warns surgery practice manager Becky Clarke (Ali Bastian) about her new romance with boss Daniel Granger (Matthew Chambers). Karen believes Daniel and his estranged wife Zara destroy everything in their path, so Becky had better watch out!
