Bear Sylvester (Dex Lee) still intends to file an official complaint after his mum Makeda (Angela Wynter) and he both experienced racism at St Phil's Hospital.

Afraid of being left in Mr Whybrow's hands after Bear makes his complaint, Makeda continues to try and convince Bear to drop his complaint against St Phil's.

Surgery receptionist Valerie Pitman (Sarah Moyle) is still holding a grudge against most of her co-workers for not taking her recent BIG announcement seriously.

Will Valerie confide in Daniel about why she is so hurt?

Doctors continues every Monday to Thursday at 1:45pm on BBC One.

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.
