It's not looking good for the marriage of Rob Hollins (Chris Walker) and his wife Karen (Jan Pearson) on Doctors (1.45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Karen is still convinced something romantic happened between Rob and his now disgraced former police partner, Harriet Shelton.

But Karen's determination to find out the truth has infuriated Rob.

And now it looks like it could be make... or BREAK for the couple!

After last week's dramatic turn of events between the couple, Jimmi Clay (Adrian Lewis Morgan) continues to offer Karen his support at work.

Surgery receptionist Karen is completely down-in-the-dumps after everything that has happened.

So Jimmi suggests Karen phones Rob to get to the bottom of what's going on.

Unfortunately the phonecall does not go well...

Has Jimmi accidentally made things worse between Karen and Rob?

In other surgery news, Al Haskey (Ian Midlane) is flirting with a woman online, known only as Starbuck.

Could she be a fan of the sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica?

Al is annoyed when Jimmi bursts his bubble by warning him that Starbuck might not be who Al thinks she is.

Al reckons Jimmi's got it all wrong.

But how can he find out the truth to be sure?
