"The Doctective" Al Haskey (played by Ian Midlane) is back on the case to try and solve another real-life medical MYSTERY on today's episode of Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Al and his surgery colleagues, Jimmi Clay (Adrian Lewis Morgan) and Scarlett Kiernan (Kia Pegg), have packed their bags and are leaving Letherbridge behind for the weekend.

Their destination is the fancy Fircombe Manor in the Cotswolds.

Al reveals that they are on a SECRET mission to get a blood sample from owner, Lord Rodney Carleton (David Calder), because SOMEONE may be trying to poison him!

But WHO?

At the family manor, Al, Jimmi and Scarlett meet beaming brother and sister, Hugo (ex-Hollyoaks star Danny Mac) and Daphne (Lucy Aarden).

Daphne reveals how her Uncle Percy (Lord Rodney's twin brother) disappeared under mysterious circumstances 25 years earlier...
