Sometimes living and working together is not a great mix, as Luca McIntyre (played by Ross McLaren) discovers on today's episode of Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Emma Reid (Dido Miles) starts fussing around nurse Luca when she discovers he's not feeling great.

It's just a cold and a headache and Luca intends to work his shift at The Mill.

But Emma seems overly worried about him.

When Emma asks Luca if he wants to make plans together for the evening, he makes an excuse that he's already going out with a friend.

Desperate to avoid Emma, Luca confides in Sid Vere (Ashley Rice) about needing some space from her.

Sid reckons Luca should discuss the issue with Emma.

But WHY is Emma suddenly so worried about Luca and hanging about him all the time?

Could this have anything to do with her recent bust-up with friend and co-worker, Zara Carmichael (Elisabeth Dermot Walsh)?
