Emma Reid (played by Dido Miles) finds herself confronted by an increasingly agitated patient on today's episode of Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings)...

The young man, Stu Adams (Oliver Anthony, who appeared in the most recent run of BBC One drama series, The Syndicate) starts blaming everything on doctors.

His behaviour starts to become increasingly disturbed and Emma begins to worry about her own safety.

As Stu continues his rant against GPs, Emma tries to contact temporary receptionist, Molly Parton (Angela Bain) for assistance.

Unfortunately, it appears that Molly is away from the desk.

Stu notices Emma trying to call Molly and angrily rips the phone cord out...

Will anyone realise the danger that Emma is in before something TERRIBLE happens?
