Doctors spoilers: Sid Vere and Al Haskey get a lesson in love!

Doctors, Holly Brooker

Single medics Sid and Al go in search of some love life advice when they attend a Love Lessons workshop... where Al is in for a surprise!

After his parents' recent wedding anniversary and the realisation that his mum Estelle so often runs his love life, Sid Vere has decided to take action and attend a Love Lessons workshop... and he's convinced his less-than-enthusiastic surgery colleague Al Haskey to come along too!

As workshop leader Holly Brooker gets things underway, grouchy Al isn't keen to join in at all and does his best to avoid answering any questions. However, he may have met his match in Holly, whose skills may outwit his reluctance!

Meanwhile, Sid happily gets stuck into making a mood board and then talks the class through what he's made, even though Al still isn't taking the class seriously and making light of everything.

Al tries to deflect by making jokes until Holly hits a nerve and tells him why she thinks he is so keen to distract with humour. Is she right?

Doctors, Sally Tennant

Emma suspects stress is causing Sally's headaches and it's not long before she discovers Sally is having problems with her father, Charlie, who has recently been acting very strangely.

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?!

Simon has written for a variety of TV and childrens’ magazines/websites including Inside Soap, Nickelodeon, What’s On TV, Radio Times, Metro, Girl Talk, Disney Girl, Toxic! and Digital Spy.

He has reported LIVE from the red carpet at The British Soap Awards interviewing glammed-up stars from soapland, and hosted a Facebook LIVE session for Metro with Home and Away legend Ray Meagher (Alf "Stone the flamin' crows!" Stewart) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Aussie soap.

Simon is also co-author of The Treasures Of Coronation Street (Carlton Books)

And the writer and director of (very!) low budget fright flick, Midsummer Night's EVIL and the sequel webisodes series, The Hatchet Woods HORROR.
