Rob Hollins (played by Chris Walker) is finally back on police patrol on Doctors (1.45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

There's been a whole lot of trouble and strife along the way after the policeman's PTSD returned earlier this year.

But Rob is now hopeful he can put all that behind him and get his life back on track.

On today's episode of the BBC daytime drama, Rob is introduced to a new PC, Kate Makinwa (Helen Aluko) at the police station.

However, the new co-workers don't exactly get off to a good start when PC Makinwa says she's heard all the gossip about their disgraced colleague, Harriet Shelton and suspect Aaron Jeffries!

Later that day, Kate arrests a man, Thomas Jacobsen (Andrew Readman) for shoplifting.

Thom claims to have amnesia.

But is he telling the truth?

WHY does he panic when Kate announces that Thom's wife is on the way to the police station...

Simon Timblick

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.
