Daniel Granger (played by Matthew Chambers) has been left with no choice but to step-in and save his Environmental Day campaign by playing the World Warrior superhero himself on Doctors! (1.45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Basically, nobody else was prepared to risk their reputation by wearing the World Warrior costume in public!

Daniel's partner Zara Carmichael (Elisabeth Dermot Walsh) and their colleague Jimmi Clay (Adrian Lewis Morgan) team-up to film some video footage of the World Warrior.

Unfortunately, Daniel is not exactly a natural in front of the camera.

He keeps forgetting his lines or says his dialogue directly into the camera.

Zara starts to lose her patience and she is not at all impressed by his performance.

But still, the medics have an important message to get out about climate change and how it's important for everyone to play their part in helping to save our planet.

Can Zara and Jimmi work their magic to get a credible performance out of nervous Daniel?

Diana Weston, who previously starred in 90s comedy The Upper Hand, guests on today's episode of the BBC daytime drama.

She plays Janet Bolt, who panics when she finds her daughter Ellie (Sydney Stevenson) passed out and jumps to the conclusion she has taken an overdose.

Al Haskey (Ian Midlane) sees both mum and daughter after the incident, and quickly observes that Janet is a smothering mum who keeps interfering in Ellie's life.

But WHAT is wrong with Ellie and WHY does she keep passing out?

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?!


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.
