Mandy Marquez played by Danielle Henry, made her first appearance on 10 February 2012. Mandy is a love interest for Freya Wilson (Lu Corfield). Mandy is introduced as a bridesmaid to Cherry Malone (Sophie Abelson). Freya later begins to develop feelings for Mandy, and the two meet up. Mandy, at first, is not sure whether she likes Freya as she is bisexual, though later begins to like her, and the two go out for dinner. The following week, Freya takes part in a football game, and Mandy comes to watch. When Mandy gets there, the team is a player short, so Mandy is asked to play. They win, and Mandy asks Freya back to her house.

Development[edit]

Mandy begins a relationship with Freya. Lloyd told Katy Moon of Inside Soap that he believed Freya needed to grow up and have a "mature relationship" with meaning. He added that Freya's crush on Cherry and her fling with Kevin Tyler (Simon Rivers) were a direct result of Freya searching for stability.[1] However, Mandy is left to contend with Freya's prevailing feelings for Kevin. Corfield opined that the dynamic of the three characters was "glorious" and that Mandy is not sure where she fits in. Freya reassures Mandy, but "there's still such a pull towards Kevin" which she fails to hide.[2] Corfield revealed that Freya and Mandy's romance would face problems in future episodes. Freya is "useless" in relationships because she is "petrified" that something will go wrong as she has never been treated well. While Corfield felt that the pair setting up home was moving too fast, in the long-run it would benefit Freya. She added that Freya would mess things up "quite wonderfully" which sets the scene of the relationship that will not run smoothly. It was noted that a Doctors storyline never usually develops without problems.[2] Like Corfield; Henry also believed Freya's "love-hate relationship" with Kevin could cause issues.[3]

Although, their relationship has positive traits which help Freya. Mandy is characterised as "honest" and "very upfront", which works out well for the indecisive Freya. Mandy's "straight-down-the-line" attitude and dislike to overcomplicate a situation; results in her just wanting to be with Freya. Mandy does not foresee the possible problems that Freya does. In one storyline, Freya promotes her blog on a radio station and gets ridiculed for her bisexuality. Mandy interrupts the broadcast to help Freya, which sets the theme of Mandy acting as her support network.[2] Henry later told Kilkelly that she thought Doctors did a "really good job" of making their character's sexuality incidental. She branded the realism of their lesbian relationship a rare occurrence on television - adding that they made a departure from the stereotypes and dramatisation associated with gay characters, adding "I think Doctors have done a really good job [...] I think Mandy and Freya's sexuality is just incidental a lot of the time - they're just two people who have a lot in common and really love each other. At the core of it, that's the most important thing".[3] Freya and Kevin were revealed to be involved in a fire storyline leading to them both being seriously injured.[4] After an argument with Kevin, Freya goes around to his house to find it on fire. Freya decides to enter the building in an attempt to save Kevin. Daniel Kilkelly of Digital Spy said that there would be a "shock ending" to the episode which would leave an "agonising" three-week wait to see if they survive.[4] He later reported that Kevin survives the blaze, but Freya dies in hospital leaving Mandy "grief-stricken".[5] However, despite the departure of Corfield, producer Peter Eryl Lloyd confirmed that Henry would stay in the show adding that she is "a great addition to the cast", and that she has "made an impression in her own right".[6] He also teased that Mandy has got "some great storylines coming up".[6]

Akono Mezu[edit]

Akono Mezu played by Emmanuel Idowu, made his first appearance on 13 January and departed on 3 February 2012. Jane Rackham from the Radio Times stated that Akono "certainly had an eyebrow-raising introduction to the staff at the Mill yesterday", saying it was a "brave decision to let Jack give him a taste of student life", but it was unfortunate that "the first person they met was Jack’s uni friend Sarah".[7]

Akono appears when the church asks Mrs Tembe (Lorna Laidlaw) if she would give Akono a home whilst he studies at Letherbridge University. She accepts, enjoying Akono staying, as they are both Christians. He is given a tour of the university by Jack Hollins (Nicolas Woodman), though begins to question whether he wants to stay in England when he sees Jack's friend Sarah Trevllin (Kate Malyon) drunk. He begins to question his beliefs as he learns of Sarah's history of rape, and that she is missing her university lectures, and considers returning to Nigeria. Akono begins to develop feelings for Mrs Tembe, though she does not feel the same way about him. Later on, Akono kisses her. Mrs Tembe is shocked by this, and asks Akono to move out.

Joe Carmichael played by Harisson and Lily-Sue Horbury, Emily and Lewis Whitehouse or Olivia and Oscar Wilson, is the son of Zara Carmichael (Elisabeth Dermot-Walsh) and Daniel Granger (Matthew Chambers), who is born on 13 February 2012.[27] When Zara goes into premature labour, Joe is delivered by Cherry Malone (Sophie Abelson). The baby is fine, and Cherry, Kevin Tyler (Simon Rivers) and Jimmi Clay (Adrian Lewis Morgan) arrive to see the baby. Zara and Daniel decide to call the baby Joe, after Daniel's uncle, Joe Fenton (Stephen Boxer). Zara and Daniel take Joe home, but when Daniel goes back to work, Zara finds it hard to cope without Daniel, so calls Marina Bonnaire (Marian McLoughlin) for help.

Development[edit]

Speaking to Digital Spy, Dermot-Walsh talked about how she prepared for Zara's labour scenes saying, "It was very daunting, really - especially as we know that so many people watching Doctors are people who are staying at home with their children. It will be fresh in their memories, so I didn't want to do it wrong! But of course, when you start researching, you discover that it's different for every woman - and if you ask people about giving birth, everybody will say something different. I've been preparing for it for a long time, though, as it's what my character has wanted ever since she came into the show. That was nearly three years ago, so to finally get the thing that I've played her as wanting for so long was quite emotional to shoot." On calling the baby Joe, she said, "I think it's really appropriate, because Daniel's father figure was Joe Fenton (Stephen Boxer), who was on the show for years and was the patriarch of Doctors for a long time. So that's a very significant name for Daniel, and I think it's very loving of Zara that she doesn't insist on calling the baby something like Lysander or Demetrius - as she'd teased him that she would!" Dermot-Walsh also stated that it has been "amazing" working with babies.[28] The character of Joe departed in August 2012, as Dermot-Walsh was expecting a baby and left to go on maternity leave. Producer Peter Eryl Lloyd said that Zara's exit storyline would air in August 2012 and would take Joe with her. However, Zara and Joe will return in the "festive season", adding that "she has to take Joe with her and have a reason to come back".[6]

Occupation Garage owner

Martin Millar played by Miles Anderson, is a love interest for Julia Parsons (Diane Keen), who first appears on 3 April 2012, before departing on 18 May 2012.[29][30] Martin first appears when Julia parks her car in front of his garage, so he has to move the car. Martin asks Julia out on a date, though at first she declines,[29] she later goes with Martin, and the two begin a relationship.[31][32] Julia worries that Martin is hiding things from her, so her and Elaine Cassidy (Janet Dibley) set a trap for him, so that if he is hiding things, they'll find out. Elaine begins talking to Martin, saying that her name is 'Alicia'. She comes on to him, but he rejects her, so Elaine phones up Julia to confirm that Martin does love her.[33] The next day, Imogen Hollins (Charlie Clemmow) asks Julia if she has googled Martin. She does so, and finds out that Martin is an arsonist.[34] Julia confronts him about this, though he states that a former employee accused him of this, as he had just been fired by Martin. He is not sure whether Julia trusts him.[35]

A week later, Julia phones Martin, to apologize.[36] The two go on a date, but Martin sees Elaine. As she does not want Martin to know who she really is, Elaine and Julia pretend that Elaine is 'Alicia' and that the two have never met. The three have dinner together, joined by Barry Biglow (David Perks), who has feelings for Julia. Elaine explains the circumstances to Barry, missing out the fact that Julia is on a date with Martin. Barry later finds out, running out the restaurant. Martin runs after him, and accidentally pushes him in the river. Barry then tells Martin that 'Alicia' is really Elaine, Julia's colleague, which leaves Martin angry.[37] Martin later reveals that he has had five wives, and that he had a daughter with his third, Sarah. Julia is stunned by this, and rejects Martin.[38] She meets up with Martin again, but when Martin says that he wants to retire and move to Wales, she once again rejects him, as she does not want this.[39] He tries to persuade Julia to come to live with him to Wales, though she once again declines. They keep arguing about this, and whilst they are, their car crashes with another vehicle, and they are both knocked unconscious.[40] Martin and Julia survive, and the two embrace. Julia's son Patrick (Alan McKenna) arrives, wanting to take her to his house, so she can recover.[41] However, after thinking about whether or not she wants a future with Martin, she decides she does, and goes to live with him in Wales.[30]

Development[edit]

Its about the biggest stunt we’ve done on Doctors. It’s really quite horrendous and it’s the ultimate cliffhanger. So it was great to be involved in that. It was filmed on one of the worst stormy days. So that made things a bit difficult. But it also made it look better, so much more dramatic. So it’s not looking good for Julia and Martin. Julia has been fighting him off because she doesn’t want to get hurt again. But Martin has a secret weapon – he makes her laugh. Anyone who can make Julia laugh is quids in.

—Diane Keen on her Doctors departure storyline and relationship with Martin.[42]

Martin was brought into the soap to coincide with the departure of Julia, after Keen made the decision to leave the soap after nine years.[43] Digital Spy said of Martin's first appearance; "Fans should also keep an eye out for a possible new love interest for Julia when she gets to know garage owner Martin Millar in a few weeks' time. It sounds like there's lots on the way for Julia in the next few weeks".[44] Keen said of Martin's and Julia's relationhip; "She's fighting it all the way, because she's had so many disastrous relationships in her life, so now she tends to take the negative point of view towards how something will turn out. Martin's really great because he won't take any nonsense and he's not taking no for an answer. He's forcing Julia to really give it a shot, and she needs that. She's obviously very attracted to him, too, so they could be very good together".[43] Of the car stunt she said that it was filmed "on a mad, stormy, windy, rainy day". She called the stunt "phenomenal" and "amazing" saying, "In the end the scenes looked incredible because of that. It was very exciting for everybody, as we don't often get to do stunts like that on Doctors".[43]

Doctor[edit]

"Doctor" played by John Dalziel, appeared on 15 May 2012.[41] Dalziel made a cameo appearance, therefore his character was not named, nor was he credited for his role. Dalziel, often known as "JD", is a DJ for Free Radio Coventry & Warwickshire.[45] He appears when he rushes to the aid of Bazza Rogers (Nason Crone). Of his role he said, "It was exciting to be on the set of one of the country's biggest soap operas. I'd say that my interpretation of the character was very convincing but I certainly wouldn't fancy being a real doctor, there would be far too much blood".[45]

Practice Manager (2012—)

Howard Bellamy played by Ian Kelsey, is the new practice manager and made his first appearance on 28 May 2012.[47] Howard first appears when introduced by Heston Carter (Owen Brenman) as the new replacement of Julia Parsons (Diane Keen) as the new practice manager.[48] Howard was a last minute applicant for the job and asked for a big salary in comparisson to the other candidate Mrs Tembe (Lorna Laidlaw).[46] However, Howard is chosen as there is a re-accreditation at The Mill, needing someone to take charge throughout this.[46] Howard divides opinion between the team, as Kevin Tyler (Simon Rivers) begins to like him,[48] however Freya Wilson (Lu Corfield), Zara Carmichael (Elisabeth Dermot-Walsh) and Elaine Cassidy (Janet Dibley) dislike him, compared to Julia.[46]

Development[edit]

The former Emmerdale and Casualty actor's casting was announced on 7 May 2012. Described as a "confident, divorced ex-army captain", Kelsey was cast in replacement of Diane Keen's character Julia Parsons, after the actress decided to leave the show. Howard is said to have "highly different and strict outlook on working life" in comparison to Julia.[47] Digital Spy reported that he "looks set to ruffle feathers at work".[49] In an interview with Digital Spy, Kelsey said of Doctors; "It's a lovely environment to work in, with a great cast and crew. It's quite easy to settle into something when it's such a laugh to work on! There's great banter between the cast and crew all day long. It's just a load of old mates thrown in a studio with lights and cameras, and everyone cracks on and has a laugh".[49]

I've spoken to a real-life practice manager and she said, 'You have to manage and manipulate every different doctor in a different way - your relationship with every doctor is different'. That's happened in Howard's relationships with the characters, which is interesting. Each character has a different relationship with Howard, which is brilliant for me, because it means that I can bounce off people differently. A lot of the characters are a bit unsure about him. There's loads of different angles and routes to go down with Howard.

—Daniel Kilkelly speaking to Ian Kelsey[49]

Of how the role came about Kelsey said, "I went to an audition and was given three scenes which were very, very different from each other. As I was looking at the scenes and working on them, I could see that each one showed a different side of Howard. That made it a gem to audition for, because if you get something like this, you can really go for it."[49] Kelsey added that Howard is an "extreme character" and that there was pressure about taking over from Keen's role but added; "They are big shoes to fill, but hopefully I can do it".[49] On why Howard chose to join the National Health Service, "He's now decided that he wants to get his hands mucky and that's why he wants to be the practice manager at The Mill. He wants to try his hand at leadership again, so he comes in and starts to lead everybody like they're part of his old military unit - which is quite hilarious!".[49] Producer Peter Eryl Lloyd said that he knew the character of Howard would be "loathed" when he first arrived, "everyone's missing Julia and we deliberately decided to go in a completely different direction with her replacement". "I love what Ian's doing and I think the audience will come to realise that Howard isn't quite the ramrod disciplinarian he seems - there's a lot more to Howard than that. It's exciting because there's so much to find out about him, and he's going to be loosened up, whether he likes it or not!".[6] In a poll conducted by Digital Spy, the five main soaps in the United Kingdom, EastEnders, Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks and Doctors storylines were judged by viewers of the website, with the Doctors storyline of Howard's arrival coming last with 3.8% of the vote.[46][50]

She was also recently involved in a storyline where she was being stalked. She originally thought it was her colleague, Al Haskey, but it was revealed to be a patient of hers, Gus Harper.

Laing's casting was announced in a news release of Harrison Kellor's return, a major character who appeared towards the end of 2011.[72] Alex is the husband of one of Harrison's possible victims, when his wife had an affair with Harrison, she went missing after the affair ended.[72] Alex asks for Harrison's former lover Elaine Cassidy's help, putting Elaine in a "difficult position".[72] A statement said, "Discovering that Alex's wife went missing after an affair with Harrison, Elaine is forced to consider that he may have killed other women too. Plagued by phone calls from Harrison in prison, will Elaine be able to confront her former lover and resist his charms?".[72] Series producer Mike Hobson finished in saying, "Lauren's murder was one of Doctors most popular storylines, and this Red Button event picks up on one of the show's most chilling villains, building across the week to a dramatic conclusion".[72] The storyline also saw the departure of Elaine from the soap.[69]

Emma Reid[edit]

Classification Present; regular
Profile
Occupation Locum doctor

Dr. Emma Reid played by Dido Miles, is a replacement for Elaine Cassidy (Janet Dibley), who made her first appearance on 2 October 2012.[78]

It was first announced that Miles was to play a new regular character on her official credits in June 2012.[79] Described as "attractive", "more than qualified", and set to "cause quite a stir" by Digital Spy, Miles's casting was confirmed on 23 September 2012.[80] Emma is introduced as knowing Howard Bellamy (Ian Kelsey), but when she arrives, her and Howard both "clearly decide not to acknowledge that they know each other at all".[78] Although Emma is only meant to be a temporary replacement, The Mill is suffering from staffing issues, so Howard is "forced to accept defeat", despite him not being pleased that Emma has arrived.[78] On her official BBC profile, it describes Emma as "fun", "flirty", "teasing" and "selfish", adding that she uses "charm to get what she wants".[77] Nathan Wright, who plays Emma's onscreen son Chris, said that Miles is "wonderful".[81] "She's a fine actress and a joy to work with. We have a strong friendship off screen which naturally makes our job easier and more enjoyable. We live together in Birmingham and love naff TV shows".[81] Off Chris and Emma's family, the BBC said, "mother to Chris and wife to the ailing Sam, her difficult relationship with her son is a constant thorn in her side, since she feels that she was never the best wife or mother. Her husband, Sam has sanctioned her to have flings. Emma doesn’t wear a wedding ring to work which can cause confusion – something she enjoys".[77] She was involved in a recent rape storyline where old flame Dave Cartwright joined the police station where Emma and Sonya O Neil work, after which Sonya and Dave start to date in which Sonya accuses him of rape. The sides are then clearly drawn Jimmi and Sonya vs Dave and Emma but when Emma goes to visit Dave and he reminds her of their past and despite her protests things get more physical and he attempts to rape her. The next day Emma confides in Jimmi as to what had happened with Dave and he persuades her to tell someone which she does however due to Emma's colourful sexual history and the fact that both her and O Neil have had consentual sex with Dave in the past it would be difficult to get a conviction.

In a poll conducted by Digital Spy, the five main soaps in the United Kingdom, EastEnders, Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks and Doctors storylines were judged by viewers of the website, with the Doctors storyline of Emma's arrival coming last with 1.7% of the vote.[82][83]

Valerie Pitman[edit]

Valerie Pitman played by Sarah Moyle, is a temporary receptionist at the Mill, who made her first appearance on 15 October 2012.[84] It was first announced that Moyle was to play a new recurring character on her official credits in 2012.[85] She departed Doctors on 3 December 2012 but made a return in November 2013 and departed again on 24 February 2014.[85]

Valerie first appears when Howard Bellamy (Ian Kelsey) phones her, needing her to be a temporary receptionist at the Mill, whilst Mrs Tembe (Lorna Laidlaw) and Karen Hollins (Jan Pearson) are on holiday.[84] She agrees to this, and starts work four days later, offending both Mrs Tembe and Karen before they leave.[66] Valerie finds her distant relatives by Mill medical records; Trudy (Judy Flynn) and Ellie Benedict (Eleanor Wyld). Valerie meets them, wanting them to be part of her life.[18][24] However, after meeting them she reliazes that they do not want to have a real relationship with her.[24]

Occupation Nurse

Chris Reid played by Nathan Wright, is introduced as the son of Emma Reid (Dido Miles) who made his first appearance on 23 October 2012. He departed on 11 April 2014. [17]

It was first announced that Wright was to play a new regular character on his official credits.[86] Digital Spy confirmed Miles's casting on 14 October 2012.[87] Chris is introduced as the son of Emma, and is a newly graduated nurse.[17] Emma suggests to Howard Bellamy (Ian Kelsey) that Chris could be a replacement to the recently departed Cherry Clay (Sophie Abelson), to which Howard agrees.[87] On his official BBC profile, it describes Chris as "dedicated", "earnest", "stubborn" and "resentful", adding that his relationship with his mother "is already complicated", never understanding his parent's marriage.[88] It finished in saying, "He felt neglected by his mum, which as a result Chris is much closer to his paraplegic father", stating that his mother "can never do anything right".[88] In an interview with the BBC, Wright said of Chris,

Chris is a caring, loving and loyal guy but is also someone who holds his demons close to the surface. He's very troubled by his relationship with his mom and he's at a point in his life where he feels a bit lost, I think essentially he's looking for consistency, maybe a girlfriend would sort him out. He enjoys nursing but it's more about the idea of helping people and being something of a Samaritan rather than the duties of being a nurse. He feels a strong connection to kids and I think tries to give them the care and support he missed out on from his mother. Ultimately he's a good guy who needs to learn to put himself first from time to time.

—Nathan Wright speaking to BBC[81]

Wright said he was "pretty nervous" on his first day on Doctors but was put at "ease very quickly".[81] He called it a "special place to work", calling the team "supportive" and "incredible", adding "I can remember the very first scene I filmed. I loved it to bits!".[81] He also talked about Dido Miles, who plays his on-screen mother, saying that she is "wonderful".[81] "She's a fine actress and a joy to work with. We have a strong friendship off screen which naturally makes our job easier and more enjoyable. We live together in Birmingham and love naff TV shows".[81]

Colin and Laura Mowbray[edit]

Colin Mowbray and Lisa Mowbray played by Steve Money and Lisa Riley, are a couple who appeared on 1 November 2012.[89]

On 5 October 2012, it was announced that Riley, best known for her role as Mandy Dingle in Emmerdale, and Money, were both to appear in Doctors.[89] Riley will play the role of Lisa a "tragic would-be mother".[89] The couple arrive at Letherbridge Police Station, where they meet Lynette Driver (Elizabeth Rider) and Jimmi Clay (Adrian Lewis Morgan) and report that the Sofia, the child they are adopting, is missing.[89] However, Driver and Jimmi learn that the adoption process "wasn't as legitimate as it first seemed".[89] Show bosses stated that this discovery will "open up a shocking new investigation that threatens to shake some of Doctors' most loved characters to the core".[89] Digital Spy called this an "intense new storyline" for Doctors.[89]
