Police Sgt Rob Hollins (Chris Walker) opens up to GP Sid Vere (Ashley Rice) about his PTSD in today’s episode of the BBC daytime drama. Doctors (BBC1, 1:45 PM; see our TV guide for listings).
Earlier there is tension between Sid and the older sister and consulting midwife, Ruhma Carter (Bharti Patel) when Sid gets too upset that there is no milk left in the refrigerator.
Ruhma sees that it’s not the milk, it’s a real problem, but before he can figure out what’s going on with Sid, Ruhma is distracted by a call.
Sid then makes a mistake with a minor surgery patient and beats himself up for it. Daniel tries to make him see that he’s okay, but Sid won’t let him pass.
Meanwhile, Bear Sylvester (Dex Lee) has to ask Rob’s wife Karen Hollins (Jan Pearson) to work through lunch to prepare for Zara Carmichael’s (Elisabeth Dermot Walsh) presentation to the CCG so they both have to cancel their lunch plans.
Sid is upset when Bear cancels, but Rob is quite happy to be free and it isn’t long before Sid and Rob see each other on The Icon and reluctantly have no choice but to have a drink together.
It’s awkward at first, but they soon start chatting and Rob opens up to Sid about his PTSD, leaving Sid shocked.
As the drinks flow, the two end up drunk much to Karen’s chagrin when she comes to pick up Rob.
Worse still, Rob is rude to her in front of Sid and, at home, the couple have a fiery fight.
Elsewhere, Valerie Pitman (Sarah Moyle) visits a confused patient named Don Harris (Terence Booth), who he thinks is his daughter.
When Valerie shows up at the door for a VPAS visit, Don, who has dementia, is confused and invites her in, thinking she’s his daughter Ann.
Valerie tries to correct it, but uses her confusion to evaluate it. She helps him cook pancakes and refuses when Don tries to give her money.
Don is even more confused when a woman named Gemma Wilks (Charlotte Workman) appears.
Valerie presumes that Gemma is Don’s daughter, Ann (Hayley Considine), whom she waited for and hands them her business card before leaving them.
However, there is trouble for Valerie when Bear later interrupts her meeting with Emma to tell Valerie that she has received a complaint from Don’s daughter Ann, claiming that Valerie has been taking advantage of Don and taking money from him.
Valerie denies wrongdoing, but admits that she helped him cook.
What exactly is happening? Will Valerie find herself in trouble and could it be a case of mistaken identity?
Doctors continues every Monday through Thursday at 1:45 pm on BBC One.
