Unclaimed Baggage

Copyright BBC

Ayesha gets involved in trying to trace the relatives of a woman who the authorities are unable to identify.

I'm really looking forward to this one. With the usual Summer break coming up, this is my last episode until September. 

More importantly, this is a story I first pitched to Doctors almost ten years ago. It didn't fit at the time, and then it got largely forgotten, but I never abandoned it.

Obviously, it was never originally pitched for Ayesha (it was a Jimmi story ten years' ago), but an opportunity came along for a special Ayesha episode, and this one seemed to fit the bill.

I haven't seen it yet. Can't wait.

Tomorrow, Wednesday 29 April. 13:45. BBC1, and iPlayer thereafter.

I hope it's worth the wait.

Idle Hands

Izzie arrives ahead of schedule, putting Daniel’s plans in disarray. Zara goes to see Emma, Jasmine gets irritated at work, and Ruhma finds herself caught in the middle.

Today. Just over an hour from now, in fact. And not a coronavirus in sight.

13:45, Monday 6th April, BBC1, and iPlayer thereafter...

A Little Faith

Copyright BBC

Daniel attends a restaurant run by prison inmates and has to help chaplain Cathy overcome her crisis of faith – in the prisoners.

Here's one to annoy the Doctors faithful; a "bottle" episode - only one Regular (Daniel), no serial, and no sign of The Mill. All I've seen is the trailer, but it looks promising. Today, Wednesday 5 February at 13:45 on BBC1 (and on the iPlayer for ages afterwards).

Jimmi gets drawn into the murky side of the prison, and Emma has to take a stand when her patients revolt.

Poor Jimmi. Or is he really Letherbridge's Mr Big? Only time will tell.

In the meantime, he's stuck in prison proclaiming his innocence. Find out more tomorrow, Friday, at 13:45 on BBC1.

Two Doctors

Okay, so I forgot to mention two episodes of Doctors.

One today (18 November) - "Barley, Hops, Yeast and Water" - lots of fun with Al, and the first glimpse of the new Practice Manager.

And one a wee while ago (23 October) - "One Lump or Two?" - a slightly silly tale of moles and twins.
