Doctors‘ Chris Walker is fully qualified to play top crime cracker, Sergeant Rob Hollins, since he’s previously played coppers in The Bill, Mersey Beat and Our Friends In The North, which also starred future 007 Daniel Craig.
We caught up with Chris on the set of Doctors in Birmingham during a milestone year for the BBC1 daytime soap, which has now screnning for 15 years and is filming its 3000th episode!
“I think it’s the variety of Doctors that’s kept it going,” says Chris, who has played Rob since 2009. “What we do differently from the other soaps is we have a story of the day. We can go off and explore every avenue. We change our genres, we go back in time, we film in black and white, we do comedy, we really do vary it.”
Watch the video interview with Chris as he reveals some surprise Doctors trivia and tells us why he’d like to be Yorkshire’s answer to James Bond.
Doctors is taking a break for Wimbledon and will return to BBC1 on Monday, July 20.
