Doctors spoilers: SHOCK showdown for Dr Al Haskey!

Doctors, Al Haskey, Mea Lyons, Carly Mason

After able-bodied Al parks in the disabled bay outside a supermarket, it causes a commotion which leads to a fight outside the hospital!

So far this year, Dr Al Haskey has been accused of being racist after a confrontation with an Asian bus driver, and homophobic after reporting same-sex couple Beth and Jadie Taylor-Wood to Social Services.

Now it looks like the medic will have to do more damage control after he parks in a disabled bay outside a supermarket and is confronted by an angry woman, Carly Mason!

But Carly's not about to let Al get away with his crime, just because he's too lazy to park further away from the supermarket entrance. She follows him to the hospital and is outraged when she spots another woman, Mea Lyons, also use the disabled bay for her own convenience.

Things get horribly out of hand when a squabble breaks out and Mea punches Carly!

Elsewhere in Letherbridge, Daniel Granger and Zara Carmichael are still getting used to their new separate living arrangements. But, as Mother's Day approaches, who will their son Joe spend the weekend with?

Meanwhile, the drama involving mums Jadie and Beth Taylor-Wood continues when practice manager Becky Clarke thinks they should change to another surgery now receptionist Karen Hollins and her husband Rob are fostering Jadie and Beth's son, Mikey. It's a conflict of interest!

But Karen's not happy about Becky's interference and announces Jadie and Beth are staying put - or she will register a formal complaint on their behalf as Mikey's foster mum!

Doctors continues weekdays at 1:45pm on BBC One

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?!
