Akono MezuEdit

Akono Mezu, portrayed by Emmanuel Idowu, first appeared on 13 January 2012, and made his last appearance 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".[2]

Akono appears when the church asks Mrs Tembe (Lorna Laidlaw) if she would give Akono a home whilst he studies at Letherbridge University. She welcomes 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.

Malcolm and Paula MaloneEdit

Malcolm Malone and Paula Malone, portrayed by Jeremy Swift and Tracey Childs, are Cherry Clay's (Sophie Abelson) parents, who arrive for Cherry's wedding to Jimmi Clay (Adrian Lewis Morgan). The couple first appeared on 31 January, before departing on 14 February 2012, after the wedding was over.[3][4]

Although the two first appear when they are invited to the wedding by Cherry, Paula phones Cherry three months earlier to tell her that Cherry's and Jimmi's wedding venue is burning down.[5][6] Whilst Cherry and Paula go dress shopping, Malcolm and Jimmi stay at the house, drinking beers.[7] Malcolm gets drunk, telling Jimmi all about Paula, and how because of her Malcolm had to give up his punk rock career.[7] Malcolm then makes Jimmi promise that Cherry does not turn into another Paula, before he falls asleep.[7] Paula and Cherry return home, to find Malcolm asleep and punk rock music playing, much to Paula's disgust.[7] Cherry starts to have second thoughts about the wedding, but is persuaded by Paula that they are just nerves.[8] Jimmi begins to realize the similarities between Cherry and Paula, and panics whilst at a dinner with the two and Malcolm, telling them that he has been married before to Eva Moore (Angela Lonsdale) and about how she was presumed dead.[9] Paula and Malcolm are shocked by this, telling Cherry that they cannot let her marry Jimmi.[9] However, after much persuasion from Cherry, they both attend the wedding, before leaving.[9][10]

Mandy Marquez, portrayed by Danielle Henry], first appeared on 10 February 2012, and made her last appearance on 7 October 2014. 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. 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.

DevelopmentEdit

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.[11] 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.[12] 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.[12] Like Corfield; Henry also believed Freya's "love-hate relationship" with Kevin could cause issues.[13]

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.[12] 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".[13] Freya and Kevin were revealed to be involved in a fire storyline leading to them both being seriously injured.[14] 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.[14] He later reported that Kevin survives the blaze, but Freya dies in hospital leaving Mandy "grief-stricken".[15] 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".[16] He also teased that Mandy has got "some great storylines coming up".[16]

Joe Granger Carmichael, portrayed by Oliver Falconer from February 2017, is the son of Zara Carmichael (Elisabeth Dermot-Walsh) and Daniel Granger (Matthew Chambers), who is born on 13 February 2012.[30] When Zara goes into premature labour, Joe is delivered by Cherry Clay (Sophie Abelson). Zara and Daniel decide to call the baby Joe, after Daniel's uncle, Joe Fenton (Stephen Boxer).

Joe's half sister, Izzie Torres (Bethan Moore), stays in Letherbridge with Joe and his parents, and takes him out for a day, and Daniel and Zara believe they are missing. When Daniel begins dating Becky Clarke, Joe is confused by their relationship but takes a shine to Becky. Izzie tells Joe that Daniel has poor taste for women, and that he should get used to his parents fighting for Joe's love. When Daniel and Zara are invited to an online safety assembly, they insist they are busy. Al Haskey (Ian Midlane) disagrees with their trust in Joe, so he pretends to be a young girl called Pixie. He chats with Joe online, and asks him to send personal details, to which Joe does. He then educates Joe on the dangers of the internet, and what not to do online. When Joe meets new classmate Ozzy Bashara (Deen Mohammed) who is fasting for Ramadan, Joe decides he wants to fast too. Zara explains that he is not a Muslim, so he does not have to fast, but he refuses to listen. Zara and Daniel eventually persuade Joe to not fast, after he cannot wait until sundown for food. When Daniel discovers that Joe has been using voice assistant Harper (voiced by Tyrone Huggins) to do his homework for him, he confiscates it.

DevelopmentEdit

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.[31] 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".[16]

CastingEdit

Twins Emily and Lewis Whitehead initiated the role of Joe, making their first credited appearance on 14 February 2012; the episode following Joe's birth. The Whitehead twins appeared in 8 episodes before the role was taken over by Harrison and Lily-Sue Horbury. The Horbury twins made their first appearance on 12 March 2012, and continued to play Joe for 28 episodes until 24 August 2014. During this time, Joe was also played by twins Olivia and Oscar Wilson for 5 episodes and River Mahjouri for 1. The Horbury twins departed the role when actress Elisabeth Dermot-Walsh left the show for her maternity leave. During Dermot-Walsh's leave, Joe made three appearances; each time played by a different child. Nathaniel Arthur Stocks assumed the role on 1 October 2012, George Black on 21 December 2012 and Corey and Luka Donnelly on 31 January 2013. When Elisabeth Dermot-Walsh returned to the role of Zara Carmichael, Joe was recast to twins Kori and Kaiden Leigh Miles, who made their first appearance on 9 April 2013. The Miles twins stayed with the show until 28 January 2015, appearing in a total of 28 episodes. On 18 March 2015, Roman Law made his first appearance in the role.

Martin Millar portrayed by Miles Anderson, first appears on 3 April 2012, and made his final appearance on 18 May 2012. Martin is introduced as a love interest for Julia Parsons (Diane Keen).[32][33] 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,[32] she later goes with Martin, and the two begin a relationship.[34][35] 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.[36] 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.[37] 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.[38]

A week later, Julia phones Martin to apologise.[39] 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.[40] 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.[41] 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.[42] 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.[43] 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.[44] 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.[33]

DevelopmentEdit

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.[45]

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.[46] 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".[47] Keen said of Martin's and Julia's relationship; "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".[46] 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".[46]

DoctorEdit

"Doctor", portrayed by John Dalziel, appeared on 15 May 2012.[44] 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.[48] He appears when he rushes to the aid of Bazza Rogers (Nason Crone). Of his role, Dalziel commenter, "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".[48]

Howard BellamyEdit

Howard Bellamy, portrayed by Ian Kelsey, first appeared on 28 May 2012, where he is introduced as the practice manager of the Mill Health Centre.[49] His storylines in the programme included suffering from bulimia, his on-off relationship with colleague Emma Reid (Dido Miles) and dealing with the miscarriage of their child together. After a brain aneurysm, Howard dies, and made his last appearance on 26 October 2015. In 2013, Kelsey was nominated for Best Comedy Performance at the 2013 British Soap Awards,[50] and received a longlist nomination for Sexiest Male.[51] Later that year, he was longlisted for Best Daytime Star at the Inside Soap Awards.[52] The next year, he was longlisted for Best Actor at the British Soap Awards,[53] and was shortlisted for Best Daytime Star at the Inside Soap Awards later that year.[54] Then at the 2016 British Soap Awards, he was nominated for Best On-Screen Partnership alongside Reid.[55]

Chris Reid, portrayed by Nathan Wright, first appears on 23 October 2012, and makes his final appearance on 11 April 2014. Chris is introduced as the son of Emma Reid (Dido Miles).[18] It was first announced that Wright was to play a new regular character on his official credits.[92] Digital Spy confirmed Miles' casting on 14 October 2012.[93] Chris is a newly graduated nurse.[18] Emma suggests to Howard Bellamy (Ian Kelsey) that Chris could be a replacement to the departed Cherry Clay (Sophie Abelson), to which Howard agrees.[93]

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.[94] 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".[94] 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[95]

Wright said he was "pretty nervous" on his first day on Doctors but was put at "ease very quickly".[95] 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!".[95] He also talked about Dido Miles, who plays his on-screen mother, saying that she is "wonderful".[95] "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".[95]

Colin and Laura MowbrayEdit

Colin Mowbray and Lisa Mowbray, portrayed by Steve Money and Lisa Riley, are a couple who appeared on 1 November 2012.[96]

On 5 October 2012, it was announced that Riley, known for her role as Mandy Dingle in Emmerdale, and Money, were both to appear in Doctors.[96] Riley portrayed the role of Lisa, a "tragic would-be mother".[96] 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.[96] However, Driver and Jimmi learn that the adoption process wasn't legitimate.[96] 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".[96] Digital Spy called this an "intense new storyline" for Doctors.[96]

Al HaskeyEdit

Dr. Al Haskey, portrayed by Ian Midlane, made his first appearance on 13 November 2012. Al is a general practitioner at The Mill. For his portrayal of Al, Midlane won the award for Best Acting Performance at the 2013 RTS Awards, as well as Best Comedy Performance at the 2018 British Soap Awards.[97] He has also received numerous other nominations including Best Actor and Best Male Dramatic Performance at the British Soap Awards, and Best Daytime Star at the Inside Soap Awards.[98][99]
