Emma Reid (played by Dido Miles) is still trying to get to the bottom of what really happened the day policeman Rob Hollins (Chris Walker) chased Aaron Jeffries into an abandoned building on Doctors (1.45pm - see our TV Guide for full listings).

Last week, a potential eyewitness Marvin Bulis (ex-Waterloo Road star Philip Martin Brown) almost revealed what he saw that day.

But then Inspector Zoya Okoro (Donna Berlin) released the homeless man without further questioning.

So on today's episode of the BBC daytime drama, Emma is in for a suprise when Marvin unexpectedly turns up at the surgery, demanding to see her!

It turns out Marvin did witness Aaron take a terrible tumble down the stairs in the warehouse.

But did Aaron fall... or was he pushed?

Emma is desperate to get Marvin to make an official eyewitness statement to the police.

This could move the investigation along and possibly help clear Rob of any wrongdoing.

But can Emma convince Marvin, who is not a fan of the police, to stick around and tell his story to Inspector Okoro?
