Emma Reid (played by Dido Miles) is not impressed after her latest confrontation with DS Matt Cassidy (Terry Mynott) on Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Emma has to work with Cassidy while she is on shift as Forensic Medical Examiner at Letherbridge Police Station.

But the GP certainly doesn't approve of Cassidy's methods of Police work.

On today's episode of the BBC daytime drama, Cassidy tries to justify what he has done, in an attempt to get accused rapist, Nicholas Thorne, convicted.

However, Cassidy's plea for understanding is not enough to convince Emma to drop the OFFICIAL complaint she has made against him...

Meanwhile, Valerie fears time is running out before she is rumbled and throws herself into the preparations for the surgery Christmas party as a distraction.

Everyone is impressed by Valerie's party planning efforts.

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.

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.
