Doctors and EastEnders Double Bill

It's all happening...

First up... Doctors, and an episode called Eppur Si Muove.  As Heston will tell you, this is Italian for something.

After he finds more evidence of intrusion, Heston's paranoia gets out of control. Is Mrs Tembe making a huge mistake by pushing Josh towards Claire?

That one's on BBC 1 at 13:45 on Thursday 7th August.  I'm telling you now because I'm about to shoot off on holiday and won't be around to remind you (yes, I know I could access remotely from wherever I happen to be - but I'll forget).


And then (I'm very excited about this), I have an episode of EastEnders on the following day.

Cora comes face-to-face with a blast from the past but how will she react?  Linda is distraught when a former ally makes a damning revelation.  Financial concerns are cast aside as Kat and Alfie's lives are changed forever.

And that one's on BBC 1 at 20:00 on Friday 8th August, repeated on BBC 3 at 22:30, and shown again as part of the Omnibus on BBC 1 at 23:45.


Both shows available on iPlayer for about a week thereafter.

Sacrifice

Copyright BBC

When Zara tracks down Edwin's drug-addicted son, she soon realises that her own life is in danger. Karen's immersion therapy with her family soon turns to disaster. Meanwhile, Mrs Tembe introduces Josh to Viv - but what will she make of his dark past?

A bit if advance warning this time, because my next episode of Doctors is Part II of a two-parter, and it won't make much sense unless you've watched the first half.

So, Part I is on this Friday.  It's called The Kiss, and it's from the prolific keyboard of Lol Fletcher.

When a former lover begs Zara to help save his son, she is put in an impossible position. Rob and the staff at the Mill are overwrought when Karen disappears.

Lol left me with a great cliff-hanger at the end to keep you all in suspense over the weekend...

And on Monday it's my ep, called Sacrifice.  BBC1 - 14:45.  And on iPlayer for a week thereafter.

The Face in the Mirror

Copyright BBC

A reluctant Zara gets caught up in an unusual love triangle. Jimmi is shocked to find Chris in prison, while Karen has a challenging session with Anna.

Yep, it's another episode from the word-processor of yours truly.  I think I might even go so far as to recommend this one.  Lots of juicy on-going serial to confuse those of you who don't watch regularly, and a silly story of the day.  Great guest actors, and really good performances from all the regulars.

Thursday, 13:45, BBC1, and for a week thereafter on iPlayer.

Fairy Gold

I've been shunted.

Doctors on Friday was cancelled so we could all watch Team GB lose the Curling final.

So Friday's episode will now be on Monday at the usual time.  And my episode will be immediately afterwards.  So that's the later time of 14:15.
Emma has to look after two women who wake up in the police cells after a heavy night of drinking during a hen do - but what really happened between them?
It is the day of Joe's christening, can Daniel and Zara go through with it? Meanwhile, Jimmi sees Hermione for a make-or-break discussion on their relationship.

Enjoy the double bill.
