Ruhma Carter (played by Bharti Patel) goes to spend some time beside her late husband, Heston's grave on today's episode of Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Long-time viewers of the BBC daytime drama will remember that Heston died after a car crash four years.

The accident almost claimed the lives of Al Haskey (Ian Midlane) and former practice manager, Mrs Tembe.

While at the graveyard, Ruhma meets two women, Kitty Webb (Buffy Davis, who played school teacher Pippa Woodley on ITV's Doc Martin) and Sandra Tanner (Lucy Black, from ITV's comedy-drama The Durrells).

Kitty and Sandra are both grieving the loss of their children in a school bus accident.

Kitty is furious at the lack of turnout from the parents of the other accident victims.

But she's even more annoyed when Graeme Wilkes (James Quinn, who has had recurring roles on other soaps including Coronation Street, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks) makes an appearance.

WHAT is Kitty's issue with Graeme?
