As policeman Rob digs deeper into the re-investigation into the murder of Grant Hill, he makes an alarming discovery about Valerie...

Joyce tells Rob there were rumours about Valerie and Grant having an affair when they worked together at the PCT. And when Rob later finds out Valerie was obsessed with married man Grant, he begins to wonder, was it enough to murder him?

Meanwhile, Sid bumps into Grant's widow Charlotte, who was recently released from prison after her conviction for Grant's murder was quashed. But is Charlotte's meeting with Sid just a coincidence or is she up to something?

Elsewhere, Al Haskey reckons his single buddy Jimmi Clay has become a bore and forgotten how to have fun.

But could there be romance in store for Jimmi when he meets Bonnie Burckin, a leg model who has just moved back to Letherbridge from London? Unfortunately, just as the pair are about to exchange phone numbers, disaster strikes!

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?!
