Things haven’t been great between Dr Zara Carmichael and her husband Dr Daniel Granger lately, as the pair continue to disagree over whether or not to have another child.

But Zara has another reason to be in a bad mood when a glamorous blonde, Melissa Harding, arrives at The Mill to discuss a business proposal with Daniel. Zara wants to continue their discussion about surrogacy but is put out when Daniel tells her he’s made plans with Melissa! What does Melissa really want with handsome doctor Daniel?

Meanwhile, with The Mill already losing patients to rival surgery Sutton Vale, Practice Manager Mrs Tembe is annoyed when she discovers they are also recruiting more staff to help with their expansion.

Determined to keep a closer eye on the competition, Mrs Tembe persuades Dr Sid Vere to go undercover and apply to interview for a job at Sutton Vale. But her plan backfires when Sid’s interview goes well and Practice Manager Jeremy Smails makes him an official job offer!

Elsewhere, Dr Heston Carter attends the funeral of a homeless man, Barry Bashford. But when Heston is unexpectedly named the Executor of Barry’s estate, he makes a surprise discovery about the man he once gave a pair of shoes to.

Doctors continues weekdays at 1:45pm on BBC One.
