Valerie Pitman (played by Sarah Moyle) has QUIT her job and hit the road in search of adventure on Doctors! (BBC One, 1.45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Unfortunately, Valerie's motorhome breaks down out in the countryside and she passes a sign - 'Welcome to Wonderland'.

It's not long before she meets some of the locals including Paul Brooks (Ben Moor) and his sister, Hattie (Harriet Thorpe, who played magazine employee Fleur in Absolutely Fabulous), and also, Masie Oliver (played by Helen Lederer, who was Fleur's equally lazy work colleague, Catriona on Absolutely Fabulous).

The setting is truly beautiful and Valerie wonders if Wonderland would be a good place to scatter the ashes of her late cat, Geoffrey.

But things start to take a bonkers turn when Valerie wakes-up to find Hattie now looks like The Mad Hatter from Alice In Wonderland! Meanwhile, Maisie has turned into The Dormouse.

Geoffrey is ALIVE and now looking strangely like grumpy GP Al Haskey (Ian Midlane), and mixing cocktails! What on earth is going on?

Things get even weirder when Karen Hollins (Jan Pearson), Jimmi Clay (Adrian Lewis Morgan) and Sid Vere (Ashley Rice) from the surgery appears as a marching band! Is it all a dream?

Or has Valerie somehow crossed over into a parallel universe away from Letherbridge? ALL will be revealed!

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.
