Doctors Addicts Anonymous Continued - Hope springs eternal

MsNobodyAgain Sun 04-Aug-13 12:59:32

This is a thread for all fans of the weekday soap 'Doctors', BBC1, 1.45pm.

Now I am hoping that:
- Heston doesn't get together with that reptilian frozen faced tart. Instead he looks at Mrs T over a cup of Red Bush and is smitten.
- The stalker storyline has a twist and perhaps Al comes to Jizzs' rescue. A knight in a bloody big suit of armour. She'd need a tin opener to get him out.
- The usual people are killed off (6tl, FOD, Chris, Jimmi). We can still hope, never happens though sad
- We get to see TBFE in his fishing gear again. But there's a storm and he is lashed by wind and rain. Phwaaaaaor!

<fans self>

So regulars, please share your hopes. Any newbies/lurkers out there (there MUST be some, surely?), please join in the banter. It's a programme that is so bad, it's good.

Huzzah to more WTF storylines. grin

Raahh Sun 04-Aug-13 13:08:16

yay!!

Am still not caught up with Friday. Or Thursday?confused

grin

I've read the spoilers- but I'm still non the wisergrin

I've just read the preview in the Radio Times for Monday and it all looks most WTF!

Raahh Sun 04-Aug-13 15:04:56

Well, am catching up with Friday's. I do not like the bad restaurant just for the sake of it thing. It's mean.

The blind date thing brought back memories. I've been on a few- some better than othersgrin.

Oooh, TBFE all casual.

Raahh Sun 04-Aug-13 15:06:11

And I loved the Psycho music during the pizza box opening. I would be exactly the same in the presence of a mushroomgrin

Raahh Sun 04-Aug-13 15:06:57

His hair is all ruffled- who was e-mailing the writers to request that?grin

Raahh Sun 04-Aug-13 15:08:44

I really want a pizza.envy

Hello all. Hope you are all okay. I have had a bit of a mini break from Doctors. Tuned in on Friday and noticed not much has changed. grin

Raahh Sun 04-Aug-13 15:11:48

'I could never be your woman'- love the background music. I want that job.

Raahh Sun 04-Aug-13 15:12:10

Sparkling !

Raahh Sun 04-Aug-13 15:17:03

MUSHROOMS

<psycho music>

Raahh Sun 04-Aug-13 15:20:56

'Mr Brightside' a song about voyeurism, classicgrin

Raahh Sun 04-Aug-13 15:22:55

grin @ his telly blowing up during the credits to Game of Thrones . <love game of Thrones>

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 04-Aug-13 16:16:54

Love the new thread MsN!

I have a theory on the stalker thing - I think it may be FOD. Al is just too obvious and FOD suddenly is always around her and she never was before.

TBFE was gorgeous on Friday, wasn't he? Love him all casual. Love him whatever he's wearing, obviously, but especially when casual.

My hopes for this thread:

1. TBFE will be shown in the gym (and shower) regularly

2. 6tl gets severe food poison during one of her restaurant critic visits and dies.

3. Chris decides to do missionary work in deepest darkest Peru and is never seen again.

3. Jimmi remembers he has OCD and is so busy washing his hands he forgets to go to work ever again.

4. Heston and Mrs T get loved up under the stars drinking Rrrred Bush and eating a nice homemade cake, whilst she is wearing her flirty wig.

5. The rightful owners of Gobby's house turn up.

6. We see more of Zaniel and less of 6tl.

Raahh Sun 04-Aug-13 16:33:08

Oh, Anne- we live in hope of your number 5grin

But especially like number 2 <evil cackle>

grin

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 04-Aug-13 16:52:45

I seem to have two number 3s. Sorry about that. Lets just think of them as 3a and 3b.

Yes Raahh, if number 2 comes true I'll be happy to wait for the others until the next thread. wink

I don't have any hopes really, don't care enough about the characters to wish anything for them! Chris is growing on me, don't mind 6tl, Jimmi is very annoying as are Jizz and Kevin. Glad zaniel sorted themselves out but what now?

Wasn't around when Gobby inherited her house and I thought the explanation was fine (old aunt no other relatives as far as I remember) so not sure who will come along.

Looking more like Heston and 6tl will get together and she won't end up with TBFE after all. Be nice for him to find a nice lady may have some bedroom scenes

Oh and thanks for the thread MsNobodyAgain

I am hoping for some new characters that I actually like. <hopeful>

Restaurant critic? What have I missed? I must check that my Sky+box is still recording it, it may have glitched with there being a 4 week break before that. I probably won't find time to watch the ones I've missed, it being the school holidays but will jump back in again now.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 05-Aug-13 07:45:58

Who - Heston and 6tl were at a restaurant and criticising everything and it just so happened that a local newspaper editor was at a neighbouring table. He has hired them to write a restaurant review column. Obviously. hmm

I think this is an attempt by the writers to make us warm to 6tl, however we still hate the "reptilian frozen faced tart" (copyright MsN).

So long as Heston doesn't warm to her too much!

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 05-Aug-13 08:11:09

That's our fear, Who. We want Hestembe!

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 05-Aug-13 13:47:15

Afternoon.

Love Mrs T! "£75??"

Shower scene was a disappointment - wanted it to be TBFE.

Wasn't that red-haired lady in Casualty?

Oh, here comes the reptilian 6tl.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 05-Aug-13 13:50:37

Is this "wife" talk all leading up to a Zaniel wedding?

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 05-Aug-13 13:52:43

Oooh! TBFE!

curlyclaz13 Mon 05-Aug-13 13:55:51

Was wondering where spa receptionist was from !
she is a bit obsessed with her son's sex life ! shock

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 05-Aug-13 13:56:12

Bondage at lunchtime? shock

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 05-Aug-13 13:58:06

Love that Karen's hypochondria has made a reappearance. It comes and goes like Jimmi's OCD.

curlyclaz13 Mon 05-Aug-13 14:01:08

ooh Al was nearly busted there.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 05-Aug-13 14:04:45

Haha!

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 05-Aug-13 14:05:06

Quite a birthday present!

curlyclaz13 Mon 05-Aug-13 14:07:01

so is the mum gay ? this is seriously WTF.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 05-Aug-13 14:11:02

I think so. Or probably bi.

All very WTF.

Miggs28 Mon 05-Aug-13 14:31:00

hey everyone! officially a lurker coming out & announcing I am a secret fan of doctors blush

I even have it on record for the days I'm out!

can't believe they're doing a bondage episode!!

Raahh Mon 05-Aug-13 14:32:51

Miggs- welcome to the Dark Side!grin

I've missed today's- bondage, hey? grin

Miggs28 Mon 05-Aug-13 15:24:57

Thanks grin I'm currently on maternity leave and have discovered the wonders of daytime telly

the stalker story line has taken a rather sinister turn with the text message!

curlyclaz13 Mon 05-Aug-13 15:33:46

Miggs, apparently maternity leave is how they reel you in !

toldmywrath Mon 05-Aug-13 15:40:54

Thanks for new thread MsNo.
Anne I thought it was TBFE in the shower at first (pah it wasn't sad ) Also I didn't notice 2 number threes until you said & then I read your follow up as 2 number twos & wondered what on earth you were on about.
Welcome to Miggs-daytime TV is a shocker, never watch it apart from Doctors (does Tipping Point on at the old time of 4pm count though??)

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 05-Aug-13 15:41:31

Hello Miggs!

Even when you return to work you will still have Doctors on series link.

Once you start you can't stop!

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 05-Aug-13 15:43:43

I know, Told! I was telling DD to be quiet as my programme was on when in the corner of my eye I saw a dark-haired man in the shower. I thought the writers must have answered our prayers and then realised it was just a teenager. Gutted.

MsNobodyAgain Mon 05-Aug-13 17:04:45

Oh sounds like I missed a good one today. I was out shopping so I'll watch later.

Welcome Miggs smile. See I knew there were lurkers out there.

I'll be late watching tomorrow too as we are going to the zoo. DS2 didn't want to come until I told him he would see monkeys bums. Now he can't wait! hmm grin

Miggs28 Mon 05-Aug-13 17:08:28

my DS will only nap on me at the moment so I'm spending quite a bit of time stuck on the sofa - the TV is my lifeline! I am even beginning to get a bit of a TV routine blush

must must must get out more!!!

I'm sure I will be leaving doctors on record from now ongrin

MsNobodyAgain Mon 05-Aug-13 17:23:42

My kids are 9, 8 and 8 and I am still using the TV as my lifeline (and MN of course).

curlyclaz13 Mon 05-Aug-13 17:35:54

Miggs how old is your little one ?

Hi Miggs28, maternity leave it how I got into it too smile

Sounds like I missed a good one, off work for two weeks so lots of days out and dh at home so not sure how many I'll see. Try and catch up on today's tomorrow.

Dh is watching Get Carter now, not my kind of film!

MsNobodyAgain Tue 06-Aug-13 12:51:35

(Chester Zoo has a MAHOOSIVE wasp problem)

Just sayin'

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 06-Aug-13 13:48:12

Have you been drinking, MsN?

TBFE looking good today.

Hope the blonde nurse who's name escapes me hasn't been left out of the additional training.

Hope the 6tl story doesn't dominate today.

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 06-Aug-13 13:49:34

What have I seen the inspector woman in before?

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 06-Aug-13 13:52:55

Sad git with no life that I am, I have just done an advanced search on my name and "blonde nurse background" and discovered that the blonde nurse in the background is called Tash.

I feel embarrassed that I had forgotten the name of one of my top 5 current characters in the show.

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 06-Aug-13 13:56:42

How can 6tl have such a knowledge of entire families in the practice when she has been a locum for years?

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 06-Aug-13 14:04:58

First time I have ever felt warm towards Chris.

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 06-Aug-13 14:06:47

Oooh! Go TBFE! Love his masterful voice! <swoon>

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 06-Aug-13 14:13:44

Zara is so not the best person to advise someone on things like this.

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 06-Aug-13 14:14:24

Well thank you very much for the chat! It has been like Piccadilly Circus here today!

Miggs28 Tue 06-Aug-13 14:49:01

have just got in, been out since 10 and have just put doctors on, glad I remembered to put it on series record!!

MsNobodyAgain Tue 06-Aug-13 15:36:03

grin at Anne talking to herself. No I am not on the grog. I am actually at Chester Zoo and the wasps outnumber all the other animals put together.

<swats frantically>

Raahh Tue 06-Aug-13 16:53:45

Ahh, Chester Zoo. grin Fortunately both older dcs have been with Rainbows/school t this year,so I am spared the expense the trip I'm considering Lyme park on Thursday (we have a free pass through the bank)-if I go, I'll take a picture of Mr Darcy in the lakegrin

Catching up with yesterday's. it is quite wtf.

Raahh Tue 06-Aug-13 17:02:23

I am beginning to think it is too obvious that Al is the stalker. He is a stalker, but I think the official stalker is someone else.

Zara is bring 'orrible to Gobby.

Raahh Tue 06-Aug-13 17:07:06

'if it's got two legs you'll sleep with it'

grin

the restaurant reviews are going to cause trouble, aren't they.

Raahh Tue 06-Aug-13 17:08:32

And the randy mother in yesterday's has been a receptionist in something else- Casualty? Didn't she lose loads of weight and launch a singing career?

Raahh Tue 06-Aug-13 17:16:09

Right todays.

Ooh, Mrs T! Another funeral. 6tl is getting her moneys worth out of her black coat. In

oh lordy, Rory got runover!

Raahh Tue 06-Aug-13 17:21:36

How are they supposed to do their job properly with this annoying development woman looking on?

Raahh Tue 06-Aug-13 17:33:08

The development woman is a bitch- and she's going to end up shagging TBFE, isn't she (he's a terrible judge of character)

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 06-Aug-13 17:47:52

TBFE shines in today's episode, Raahh.

Yes, yesterday's randy mother was in Casualty.

Raahh - I said the other day that I didn't think Al was the stalker. I think it is Mandy. I realise that this is a ridiculous notion.

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 06-Aug-13 17:48:22

Oh! Maybe the stalker is Tash! We haven't seen her this week!

Raahh Tue 06-Aug-13 17:51:23

ooh, Tash! maybe...

I know that Doctor's plots are really obvious, but just for once I'd like a twist. but realise this may make the writers explode!

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 06-Aug-13 18:35:31

They need to bring Barry in to investigate! I miss Barry. He's also in my top 5 current characters, even though he hasn't been in it for months.

ClayDavis Tue 06-Aug-13 18:40:40

Right. Fell off the last thread. Have just realised I haven't caught up with Thursday's and Friday's episodes yet let alone this weeks.

Looked up the woman assessing everyone and she's had little parts in loads including emmerdale and the bill. She was really annoying, I really dislike shit stirrers! Glad she was given what for. Not quite sure what to think of Rory!

ClayDavis Tue 06-Aug-13 20:17:18

Wow. Catching up is like a whole marathon of WTF. The boy in the woods, TBFE and the pizza guy, Jaz's drunken date, the randy receptionist.

Raahh Wed 07-Aug-13 13:46:52

Oh, they've let them out ona course.

is FOD wearing one of Freya (who)'s old shirts altered

Raahh Wed 07-Aug-13 14:02:54

ha ha at Gobby draping herself over Chris.

I was just realised I have messed up.Our planned trip to Lyme park tomorrow has to be changed, as the house is shut, and it's not worth going. But we have a free nt pass, so are going round the corner to Styal. Again.sad

This is a bit of a dull episode.

curlyclaz13 Wed 07-Aug-13 14:16:55

bit behind today but it's not really that great is it ? do you think the jizz/al thing will come to a head now Kevin is on it ?

MsNobodyAgain Wed 07-Aug-13 18:27:13

The school holidays are playing havoc with my viewing sad. I am 3 behind now.

By the time I get the kids to bed at gone 9 I am fit for nothing myself. And I am trying to pack for hols. and speak to csa/solicitors about he who must not be named

Must do better.

AlphaBetaOoda Wed 07-Aug-13 20:38:42

Just place marking as I've not watched this week and got left behind last week bloody school holidays and doctors appts

Watching now.

This vomitting woman is weird!

I do like Kevin's matter of factness even if he is annoying at times!

Raahh Thu 08-Aug-13 13:50:52

Can't watch today- am at quarrey bank mill , being attacked by the wasps that have moved to styal from Chester!

MsNobodyAgain Thu 08-Aug-13 14:11:53

It's a plague round here Raahh. Glad I am stuck in the opticians for now, although that is another episode I need to watch later.

curlyclaz13 Thu 08-Aug-13 16:01:41

just watched, another dull one.

Raahh Thu 08-Aug-13 19:03:00

Oooh- my local news at lunchtime were showing Quarry Bank mill (the tail end is on before my recording of Doctors)we watched them filming!Think it's to do with 'The Mill' that was filmed there.

Right I'm going to watch today's...

Raahh Thu 08-Aug-13 19:04:22

Gobbyplod is in a bad mood.

Raahh Thu 08-Aug-13 19:14:29

'dipping a pig'

Raahh Thu 08-Aug-13 19:29:52

web cam- I think it's in the plant Al bought Jizz when she moved in.

Haven't seen Gobby plod in ages! I enjoyed today's episode, wondering if Al's gf is going to be real or if he's going to pay an escort. The stalker is a bit confused now I think, one minute I like your lacy top next minute slag by text hmm

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 08-Aug-13 22:41:13

Watched yesterday's earlier. Very WTF. Especially Gobby draped over Chris. confused

Will have to watch today's and tomorrow's tomorrow night as we've been taking advantage of some free activities put on this week by local attractions. The things I do for dd. Oh well, only just over three weeks until school starts!

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 08-Aug-13 22:42:23

Cinnamon - I reckon Gobbyplod will be brought in to solve the stalker case.

MsNobodyAgain Thu 08-Aug-13 22:42:40

I've finally caught up, yay!

TBFE had overdone the Brylcream on Monday. His hair looked like he'd had it in a chip pan.

The vomiting woman was a good actress, made me feel quite queasy. The receptionist on Monday made me laugh and also reminded me not to watch Doctors with my mum. The scriptwriters love to throw an odd bit of filth in grin

Talking of filth... Kevin is looking mighty finnnnnne lately.

I don't think Mandy is the stalker, still think it is Al or could it possibly be that guy she was dating/engaged to when she first joined the series?

Hadn't thought of that, probably giving him a rest before he's in every episode. Hope that hideous woman he did the baby stealing investigation with doesn't return!

HoggyTruffle Fri 09-Aug-13 13:46:20

Waiting for a good one today. All children occupied and a cup of tea ready.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 09-Aug-13 13:48:02

Me too Hoggy. Might not get chance at all next week.

Ohhhh, a clairvoyant.

HoggyTruffle Fri 09-Aug-13 13:48:31

MrsT versus a psychic. Should be a bun fight.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 09-Aug-13 13:49:09

6tl looks amazingly drab today.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 09-Aug-13 13:50:02

I know who my moneys on grin

HoggyTruffle Fri 09-Aug-13 13:50:32

Kev's shirt is a bit loud. It is having a fight with his trousers/waistcoat combo.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 09-Aug-13 13:52:04

I hadn't noticed. Too busy admiring his stubble.

HoggyTruffle Fri 09-Aug-13 13:57:40

Creepy Al is suspected of lying about his new girlfriend.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 09-Aug-13 13:59:29

About time too. They need to crack on with that storyline.

HoggyTruffle Fri 09-Aug-13 14:02:14

Stalking the stalker?

MsNobodyAgain Fri 09-Aug-13 14:05:16

Ewwwww, Al in a strip club.

HoggyTruffle Fri 09-Aug-13 14:06:26

A Jiz substitute. Surely there isn't enough room in the world for two!

HoggyTruffle Fri 09-Aug-13 14:07:19

I'm beginning to feel sorry for Al. I hope he isn't the stalker.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 09-Aug-13 14:09:16

He's playing too good a part for me to like him. Gives me the heebie geebies.

HoggyTruffle Fri 09-Aug-13 14:09:18

I've just remembered about the hidden cameras shock. Now Jiz is being nice about Al so he must be the creepy stalker.

HoggyTruffle Fri 09-Aug-13 14:12:31

Heebie geebies indeed [shudders]

MsNobodyAgain Fri 09-Aug-13 14:12:45

It's confusing isn't it? Well, time to dye my hair. Ohhhhhh the glamour, a home dye job. I'll try not to ruin my slippers this time.

HoggyTruffle Fri 09-Aug-13 14:14:54

I'm off to the park with DD to find DS and DN. My life is non stop excitement too grin

curlyclaz13 Fri 09-Aug-13 15:16:05

The mothership was here so I made her watch it too, I think she is worried about me now grin It has to be Al doesn't it ? he really reminds me of my bosses son, he would do something creepy like that and he looks the spit.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 09-Aug-13 16:06:22

Arf @ 'the Mothership' grin

toldmywrath Fri 09-Aug-13 16:20:45

MsNo-double glamour: you dyeing your hair- whilst wearing your slippers.
The mothership !
Now my theory (well my DS's theory really) is that Al is not the stalker but he will ride to Jiz's rescue next week when Kev's on his hols.

curlyclaz13 Fri 09-Aug-13 16:34:20

Maybe Kev is the stalker and is trying to frame Al grin

Raahh Fri 09-Aug-13 18:22:02

Well, today,to continue the Raahh family holidays, we went to Jodrell bank. Haven't been for years- dcs very impressed by large telescope. Parents less impressed by cost of food. We did get a refund on Dh's as there was a dead fly on his chips. He's just gutted he didn't finish more of the the burger before he discovered it and took it back.grinAnd Prof Brian Cox wasn't there, but a very lovely bloke did the talk old enoughto be his mother

Dh back at work Monday, so we've got 3 weeks of 'muuuuuum I'm bored'/bickering over Minecraft to look forward to. And dd1's birthday next Friday-she's very excited , I foresee major anti-climax.

Will catch up latergrin

MsNobodyAgain Fri 09-Aug-13 18:43:24

told I just needed a rotten dressing gown to complete the look.

Raahh ex-h once took me to Jodrell Bank. It was shut hmm

I am orf to a lovely family run caravan park in an idyllic coastal town Haven in Blackpool so keep the thread warm in my absence please. smile

Raahh Fri 09-Aug-13 19:57:25

grin at JB being shut- I didn't know it ever did!! Mind you, they don't have the planetarium anymore, due to cuts in the University funding.

Haven in Blackpool- good luckwink
We went a few of years back, even though it was Easter weekend, I have never been so cold. Dh went home in the middle of the first night to get extra duvets and an electric heater. Lucky we're not that far away. Kids enjoyed it though. We used to go to Pontins every year when I was a kid, fond memories of very long drives to Lowestoft and the Isle of Wight.grin

MsNobodyAgain Fri 09-Aug-13 20:10:05

I have booked the duluxe/supreme/ whatevertheycallitthatyoupayextrafor, just to ensure we have heating in the bedrooms and bathrooms.

My parents used to own a caravan in Rhyl that only had a gas fire. Grim.

ClayDavis Fri 09-Aug-13 20:10:13

I had family who lived in Lowestoft when I was a kid. Don't really remember much about it though. Do remember going on holiday to Blackpool in December though. It was freezing and not to be recommended.

If this wasn't Doctors, I'd say that Al couldn't be the stalker because they've made it too obvious. As it is Doctors, I have no idea whether he is or not. I'm not sure the script writing is up to having a twist in the tale.

HoggyTruffle Fri 09-Aug-13 20:20:01

We did a caravan park in Fleetwood up the road from Blackpool in October once. It was bloody freezing quite cold but luckily there was central heating in the caravan. Caravans have certainly moved on since the family holidays of my childhood.

The last time I was in Blackpool for the lights we walked back to our hotel in horizontal icy rain with sobbing DC because all the trams were full. I was brought up in the North West but had forgotten the lovely weather that comes across the Irish Sea grin

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 09-Aug-13 21:29:49

Watched yesterday's but not had a chance to see today's yet, and I am watching BB now. (Love classy tv, me grin)

Have a fab holiday MsN, hope you get great weather and the wasps don't follow you to Blackpool. grin

Raahh Fri 09-Aug-13 21:30:15

Here's a funny 'things kids say' thing from yesterday. We were shown a pot of live leeches, in a talk about Victorian medicine. Ds went green, and said 'I ate those at the Chinese restaurant?? That's disgusting!'shock

Turns out he meant lycheesgrin

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 09-Aug-13 21:33:03

I went to Blackpool once for a wedding and went when the lights were on. It was pouring with rain and I kept asking DH when the lights were coming on, and he kept saying "I don't know".

Eventually we asked someone as we were cold, soaked through, hungry (there seemed to be no restaurants in Blackpool, it was bizarre) and fed up. We were told they were on. I've seen better lit country roads.

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 09-Aug-13 21:33:57

grin Raahh.

I think you're lucky not to remember Lowestoft! I'm not to far away and haven't been for a while out of choice, Norfolk beaches are definitely better than Suffolk ones smile

We've been to Norwich today hunting Gorillas so missed Doctors, was just about to watch when dh suggested I wouldn't make it to the end and we should go to bed! So night night all smile

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 09-Aug-13 21:46:01

Oh I love Norwich, Cinnamon. One of my friends on FB has been posting pictures every day of the gorillas and they are fabulous!

We found 24 out of the 53, will go again but without dh for the rest! Was going to go with my db but ds1 wants to find the rest so will take him too smile

Raahh Sat 10-Aug-13 12:50:44

Oooh, I've read the spoilers! grin

My Doctors viewing schedule is all over the place at the momentsad

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 11-Aug-13 16:30:28

Ok, all up to date, finally, and have read the spoilers.

I'm still not convinced Al is the stalker. I think he has done some stalkerish things, but I don't think he is the real scary stalker.

Raahh Sun 11-Aug-13 20:06:18

Anne- I don't think so either. It will be someone really unexpected. or notgrin

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 11-Aug-13 21:02:45

It will either be her ex, a patient we have never seen before or Heston. grin

Raahh Sun 11-Aug-13 21:49:08

Hestongrin

I hope it's not Barrysad

AlphaBetaOoda Sun 11-Aug-13 23:11:21

No totally left field and going for TBFE
<ducks to hide from Anne >

I've just caught up and going to be behind again tomorrow as dds have haircuts/tues meeting friends/wed day out.

Raahh Sun 11-Aug-13 23:23:43

Have finally caught up with Friday.

'Heaven is not a holiday destination'-I Love Mrs T grin

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 12-Aug-13 07:55:06

Ood I am shock at you. I can only presume you must have been drinking.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 12-Aug-13 13:46:33

Afternoon. Watching live for a change.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 12-Aug-13 13:49:02

Tanya should use her right hook on her bloke.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 12-Aug-13 13:59:59

I am very confused with this policewoman story. I really don't know what is going on. Just another normal episode of Doctors then!

Haven't caught up on Fridays but watching today. Dexter was in hollyoaks. The woman is familiar too, any ideas?

6tl and Heston are getting on my nerves today, why are thy being so horrible!

Oooohh stroppy!

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 12-Aug-13 14:01:55

No idea, but I never recognise anybody.

curlyclaz13 Mon 12-Aug-13 14:02:14

nice and random again
grin

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 12-Aug-13 14:03:02

6tl always gets on my nerves, Cinnamon. She is a bad influence on Heston. He needs to go back to Mrs T.

MrsReiver Mon 12-Aug-13 14:03:53

When it's revealed Al isn't Jizz's stalker, I shall remind you all that I said that from the start! grin

I have no idea what is going on with the polis woman - who is Daz? What is he after? Is he blackmailing her in return for Andy's contract with the gym?

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 12-Aug-13 14:05:38

Oh I'm looking forward to Daniel and Mrs T playing golf!

Should be interesting, Daniel always puts his foot in it!

curlyclaz13 Mon 12-Aug-13 14:09:36

the only policeman in the village to the rescue !
he is blackmailing her over her steroid use to stop his mate going down for murder I think.

Feeling a bit sorry for Al!

MrsReiver Mon 12-Aug-13 14:09:51

Daniel really needs a haircut.

MrsReiver Mon 12-Aug-13 14:10:26

Daaaawwww, Jimmy's lovely.

I said the same about Daniels hair grin

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 12-Aug-13 14:12:03

Thank God we have Curly on the thread to decipher the plots for us! Could you do a resume every day for us? Thanks in advance! wink

curlyclaz13 Mon 12-Aug-13 14:29:23

oh god, I truly have lost all hope haven't I ?! I missed the end due to a pukey baby so not much use really.

Raahh Mon 12-Aug-13 14:29:26

Right, finally sat down, been clearing the dcs rooms. I wish I hadn't started.grin

Oh-nothing like POAS on demandhmm

Raahh Mon 12-Aug-13 14:34:06

I don't like the restaurant critic thing, it's mean. Heston could do so much bettergrin

FOD knows everyone.

Raahh Mon 12-Aug-13 14:43:38

So Kev is off on holiday.

And 6tl is total snobby caaahh.

Raahh Mon 12-Aug-13 14:45:19

Mrs T gets all the best lines!

And Zara is a scheming madam. grin

That was just plain mean of Zara, maybe Daniel can persuade 6tl to take her to a Restuarant to critique on her day off!

I won't be watching today, we're on the way to duxford confused sad hmm

curlyclaz13 Tue 13-Aug-13 13:50:51

eh ?

MrsReiver Tue 13-Aug-13 13:51:35

No idea.

curlyclaz13 Tue 13-Aug-13 13:54:32

???????????

curlyclaz13 Tue 13-Aug-13 13:57:14

That wig is not compatible with golf.

MrsReiver Tue 13-Aug-13 13:57:30

Still no idea.

MrsReiver Tue 13-Aug-13 14:02:34

On yersel' Mrs T!

Just switched on. Mrs T seems to be playing Golf with Daniel in a silly hat. confused

Is Morotania a real place?

curlyclaz13 Tue 13-Aug-13 14:06:02

I thought it was a ship. confused
did jas' s blinds open themselves while she was asleep ?

MrsReiver Tue 13-Aug-13 14:08:17

Mauritania is real yes, and I was thinking that Curly.

The call is coming from inside the house........

This stalker storyline is bollocks.

curlyclaz13 Tue 13-Aug-13 14:08:33

ooh she's caught him !

MrsReiver Tue 13-Aug-13 14:09:24

So Al IS the stalker? Or is he trying to protect her from the stalker?

I'm so confused.

I think a house fire involving Jas and Al seems appropriate in this case.

I think he is the stalker MrsR.

MrsReiver Tue 13-Aug-13 14:11:24

An episode featuring parallel universes?

Doctors does Sliding Doors.

MrsReiver Tue 13-Aug-13 14:12:09

Such a cop out. I'm very disappointed. My faith in him was misplaced.

curlyclaz13 Tue 13-Aug-13 14:45:48

MrsR I think you would have to be in a parallel universe to have a script that complex in doctors ! wink

Raahh Tue 13-Aug-13 16:30:45

Missed todays,as was asleepblush.In my defence, I was up most of the nightas dd2 was constipated (tmi) and couldn't sleep. (She's ok nowgrin), and then I was up sobbing in a hormonal pmt mess at 4.30. So by 12.30, I was shatteredgrin

Providing I'm still awake, I'll catch up later.

Raahh Tue 13-Aug-13 21:04:16

Right just catching up.

that wig is not compatible with golf Classic grin

Poor Kev, doesn't look like he's going anywhere...

Raahh Tue 13-Aug-13 21:08:13

And Jimmi would be a nightmare to take on holiday- he'd probably fold his trunks at the end of his bed. He'd never swim in a pool with^other bodies^<shudder> grin

today's is quite funny.

Raahh Tue 13-Aug-13 21:10:03

Why has Mrs T dressed as Super Gran?

Raahh Tue 13-Aug-13 21:11:08

oh, the stalker has upped the ante- an engagement ring???

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 13-Aug-13 21:16:17

Going to catch up now.

The Doctors' Facebook page says "Is Al the stalker?", which suggests to me he isn't.

Raahh Tue 13-Aug-13 21:16:34

'a crisis of faith on the back nine' pmsl

Zara is a beatch!grin

Raahh Tue 13-Aug-13 21:19:23

Go Mrs T!!!

Raahh Tue 13-Aug-13 21:21:57

How do you book a holiday without somebody telling you you need a visa?

Raahh Tue 13-Aug-13 21:23:22

So he expected them to go to Paris?

Oh Al!

Raahh Tue 13-Aug-13 21:25:22

Oh dear,Al.

curlyclaz13 Tue 13-Aug-13 21:44:07

I have just seen a thread on active about stylish clothes for golf, it took some restraint not to post about Mrs T grin

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 13-Aug-13 21:46:41

I love Mrs T.

ClayDavis Tue 13-Aug-13 21:49:50

Just catching up. MrsT plays golf. Classic.

MrsReiver Wed 14-Aug-13 13:46:28

She took him to the cleaners on the 19th surely?

Oh FFS this Jasal storyline is making me cross.

MrsReiver Wed 14-Aug-13 13:48:18

The stalking isn't going to stop and Al will come to the rescue.

#keepingthefaith

Ooh an unnecessary home visit.

MrsReiver Wed 14-Aug-13 13:56:33

Do the mother and son only exist in Daniel's head?

curlyclaz13 Wed 14-Aug-13 13:57:28

missed the first five minutes, what's going on with the card writing child ? and love looking for worm holes old man.

Eh? What?

I saw the first 5 minutes and haven't got a scooby curly.

MrsReiver Wed 14-Aug-13 13:59:44

Seeing the first five minutes hasn't helped me Curly.

curlyclaz13 Wed 14-Aug-13 14:00:34

true to form then !

MrsReiver Wed 14-Aug-13 14:01:00

What? The boy has died? When....???

I have no idea what's going on. Has there been flashbacks but we didn't know? Who had a heart attack? Oh, the 13 year old did. Right. confused

When he was on the pitch after Daniel said he was fit to play?

MrsReiver Wed 14-Aug-13 14:02:02

Are we all tripping?

I think we must all be on Quack.

MrsReiver Wed 14-Aug-13 14:03:00

So that's why they ran onto the pitch at the very beginning.

curlyclaz13 Wed 14-Aug-13 14:03:27

eh ?

sad

MrsReiver Wed 14-Aug-13 14:04:51

He gave up the cpr a bit quick didn't he?

MrsReiver Wed 14-Aug-13 14:05:21

Every cpr cliche in the book there - nicely done.

GP visits patient in hospital. Yeah right.

MrsReiver Wed 14-Aug-13 14:07:27

Why did he know to go to old man's house? My baby was crying.

curlyclaz13 Wed 14-Aug-13 14:09:09

he didn't go to the hospital, because obviously doctors phone and check if you turn up.

ooh do you think tbfe is the stalker ?

I have no crying baby but have no idea MrsR.

MrsReiver Wed 14-Aug-13 14:10:11

Cheers, I could see he was on phone but couldn't hear what he was saying. Inconvenient baby.

MrsReiver Wed 14-Aug-13 14:11:36

#TeamAl

Me too MrsR.

toldmywrath Wed 14-Aug-13 16:20:50

Curly arf at the wig incompatability-& go for it on the other thread- I dare you to comment about Mrs T's apparel.
I thought today's was very sad-saving the old man but not the young boy. Yes Daniel gave up on the cpr too soon-he would have waited for the paramedics at least.
I don't think Al is the stalker-why didn't he & Jaz communicate more-she never mentioned the slag texts & gifts etc..
Rant over.

Right, apologies for being AWOL, but I haven't found time to watch a single episode since getting back off holiday, and we're away again next week, I am starting to think I will have to pick up again once school goes back. I have missed the chatter though, so I am going to read through the thread and join in even if I'm not watching.

News from me - I have got an allotment! Been on the waiting list 4 years and forgotten all about it. There is a concern that it might eat into my TV watching still further though.

toldmywrath Wed 14-Aug-13 18:20:22

Who good news on the allotment. I don't think you've missed much, but the Al Jiz stalker storyline has been warming up.

Thanks Told. I will try my best to piece together the storyline from the thread. I stayed off here in case I managed a catch up and confused myself, but I have decided to give up and just watch when I can.

curlyclaz13 Wed 14-Aug-13 19:14:15

Who, I'm not sure watching it would leave you less confused than reading the thread grin

HoggyTruffle Wed 14-Aug-13 20:53:08

I'm with you Who, I will have to wait until after the hols to get down to some serious watching. I find this thread often makes more sense than the actual program.

Could the stalker be a blast from the past? Does the stalker have a large bean bag with them? Is Mac back?

I don't think the boy died toldmywrath, he could have in an alternative universe that the old guy was talking about and that was the first bit but I thought at the end he was alive? Perhaps I need to watch again?!?

It looks to me like Al is responsible for some of the stalkerish behaviour but not all. Perhaps it's her ex fiance?

I watched all of today's and the first half of yesterdays.

Ok, read through the whole thread and am none the wiser. Arf at wigs incompatible with golf.

I think the stalker is Jimmi <random>.

Tomorrow I will be taking the DCs shoe shopping sad.

MrsReiver Thu 15-Aug-13 09:52:52

I just have a basic childhood first aid cert and I know you continue CPR until the nee naws arrive.

I think all the stuff at the beginning was flashbacks Cinnamon, but it was really, really poorly edited.

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 15-Aug-13 10:10:47

Haven't seen yesterday's yet and am also doing the dreaded shoe-shopping for DD today so won't see today's.

Love the idea that the stalker is Mac. grin

curlyclaz13 Thu 15-Aug-13 10:15:37

The fb page has a link for tv awards featuring Mrs T in her lovely inappropriate for golf wig grin
I really need help don't I ?

curlyclaz13 Thu 15-Aug-13 10:16:38

sorry, incompatible with golf wig grin

HoggyTruffle Thu 15-Aug-13 13:46:00

Zara, she's not an ogre

No, she's worse smile

HoggyTruffle Thu 15-Aug-13 13:49:21

D&V at the police station. Hope it affects doesn't affect the only plod in the village.

HoggyTruffle Thu 15-Aug-13 13:52:15

Now Al is in kangaroo court at the Mill for stalking.

And more vomiting at the nick.

HoggyTruffle Thu 15-Aug-13 13:55:47

Heston is having a man to man talk about ardour with Al now. His bow tie might start spinning soon in horror.

HoggyTruffle Thu 15-Aug-13 13:58:52

They are falling like flies now. Mass vomiting from police men and women all over Leatherbridge. It is a doctors worse nightmare says 6tl.

HoggyTruffle Thu 15-Aug-13 14:00:56

The only plod in the village is about to find out what is going with the vomming. It was the sandwich!

HoggyTruffle Thu 15-Aug-13 14:02:44

It's taxing police work now. He has to find out where the sandwich came from.

HoggyTruffle Thu 15-Aug-13 14:05:08

Poor Al. Zara is having a go now - "inadequate pathetic slug" is a bit harsh. I just hope he gets to save Jiz from the real stalker.

HoggyTruffle Thu 15-Aug-13 14:09:25

Plod ate the sandwiches too grin.

HoggyTruffle Thu 15-Aug-13 14:11:50

Well it's been lovely chatting to myself (I'm used to it with 2 DC) and if you have recorded this episode you can tell it's not really worth watching (unless you like toilet scenes).

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 15-Aug-13 14:26:57

Thanks Hoggy! grin

Just watched yesterday's as was back earlier than I thought and have commandeered the TV.

Very strange with the parallel universes, but I think the young boy definitely did die.

Just about to watch today's.

toldmywrath Thu 15-Aug-13 16:10:27

Yes I think he died sad Anne
I hope Al isn't thinking of doing something stupid (overdose perhaps)following Zara's awful attack on him. Yet again they haven't mentioned the slag text, emails & gift left/flowers on car!
Didn't watch live today as my DD was throwing up! Imagaine my surprise when I watched it on replay... envy that's a vom emoticon rather than a envy one btw
Waves to Hoggy

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 15-Aug-13 16:13:41

Oh, life imitating art, told! Hope your DD is feeling better now.

No one has actually told Al what he is meant to have done, so when he apologises I think he is apologising for lesser crimes. He is definitely not the main stalker.

Loved the preview of tomorrow's episode where Zara thinks Joe is gifted! Bet she would be on MN! grin

toldmywrath Thu 15-Aug-13 16:18:40

Is this cake a new one ?

toldmywrath Thu 15-Aug-13 16:23:05

Thanks Anne DD is on the mend fx. They need their mummies when they're poorly.
Yes -no one has told Al all the ins & outs-so I think he's apologising for the lesser crime including keeping an eye on her (still stalkery behaviour though-I wouldn't like it)
When will she find the camera in her house? (I mistyped that as hose originally-now that would be a surprise!)

toldmywrath Thu 15-Aug-13 16:24:30

I don't watch the previews-don't want to 'spoil' the episode.

curlyclaz13 Thu 15-Aug-13 16:39:12

just caught up, bit low on wtf factor today. I do think that Al is apologising for what he has done without knowing the full story.
my money is still on tbfe, he was too pleased that jizz didn't want the police involved.

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 15-Aug-13 17:02:02

No way. TBFE is too lovely to be a stalker. People would be more likely to stalk him.

Thanks Hoggy - saved me having to watch it grin

AlphaBetaOoda Thu 15-Aug-13 21:44:09

anne put the binoculars away and leave TBFE alone.

I've just watched 4 in a row. Makes them feel even more WTF!

Good thinking on Al & another 'evil' stalker though I liked Zara's take on him.

Lol at the golf & today's poo/sick/sandwich mystery was yawn. Daniels story getsWTF if the week for me.

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 15-Aug-13 22:11:31

Ok Ood. Spoilsport.

AlphaBetaOoda Thu 15-Aug-13 22:19:53

grin

It's really irritated me that Al has owned up to who knows what and they've accused him without actually talking about the crimes he's accused of! Vomiting bug was daft and 6tl was far too excited about it confused

Will need to watch that episode again as I'm sure the boy didn't die! He died at the beginning but then Daniel and mum were at the football match and he was running around and the old mans voice came on talking about his alternative parallel universes.

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 15-Aug-13 22:34:01

It finished with them standing by the field with no football match on, and then you saw a ghostly vision of him running past and waving. I think he definitely died.*

*Please be aware I have difficulty following WTF plots so this may be a load of rubbish.

But what about the bit where he breathed after Daniel gave him CPR and then mum smiled at him and they put him in the recovery position?

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 15-Aug-13 22:42:52

That was before the end though, that was in the alternate universe. Not this one.

I think.

Ah ok, he definitely did fade at the end but I assumed that was something arty that I just didn't get blush

AlphaBetaOoda Fri 16-Aug-13 07:19:04

I didn't ge that at all.

Raahh Fri 16-Aug-13 11:49:40

It's dd1's 7th birthday today- she has requested a girly shopping trip to the Trafford centre, so my mum got her a giftcard. I foresee huge amounts of tat being purchased from Claire's accessories. This means I will miss today's as wellsad

Raahh Fri 16-Aug-13 13:48:32

oh, I'm still here!

stealing toilet paper is the least of Al's worriesgrin

Raahh Fri 16-Aug-13 13:49:12

Howard's quiffgrin

Raahh Fri 16-Aug-13 13:51:38

what's the deal with this woman? she's acting very strange.

Raahh Fri 16-Aug-13 13:54:28

grin @ Zara thinking Joe said 'appropriate' .

Oh- social services. What is she up to?

Gobby is in her element with the gossip. And she's taking the piss out of Danielgrin

Raahh Fri 16-Aug-13 13:57:58

ooh- snotty police officer sneering a Chris being 'only' a nurse.

I love Zaniel coming over all g and t and pfb.

Raahh Fri 16-Aug-13 14:03:10

grin- Joe said 'poorly foot'

Raahh Fri 16-Aug-13 14:04:17

I'm still confused.

Raahh Fri 16-Aug-13 14:05:55

Gobby doesn't do 'sensitive'

Raahh Fri 16-Aug-13 14:08:23

the plod is annoying. Why is he trying to make a big issue??

Well, I managed to watch the last 15 mins today but am still none the wiser. Chris is such a bloody do-gooder (even if he was right).

curlyclaz13 Fri 16-Aug-13 15:01:02

The mothership was here so only half watched but I don't think that was detrimental to my understanding or enjoyment of today's episode. love the non genius child ! why wasn't the only plod in the village sent to find the 'missing' baby ? was he still poorly from yesterday's sandwiches grin

Seeing as Jimmi is the only one to know what Al has actually done he's being pretty harsh.

Why were the police after that woman? Just because of the diagnosis of the baby's illness?

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 16-Aug-13 20:45:48

Well 99% of today's was pointless. Zaniel was funny though.

Looking forward to tomorrow as Gobby's snooty neighbour is back! I love her!

Raahh Fri 16-Aug-13 20:45:51

cinnamon- I felt like I missed half the programme. I think she took the baby A & E, with chickenpox, and concerns over paracetamol side effects. The hospital mis-diagnosed an infection, and wanted to give intravenous antibiotics, which she refused, so left. Which triggered social services involvement, and a very over zealous plod. But it wasn't very cleargrin

toldmywrath Fri 16-Aug-13 21:04:04

Yes Raahh -you've summarized nicely.
Anne-is it on tomorrow then?? You must be well excited about Doctors on a Saturday wink

Raahh Fri 16-Aug-13 21:08:25

grin

Doctors on a Saturday. If only!

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 16-Aug-13 21:13:21

Haha! My brain is mush, never listen to me. grin

MsNobodyAgain Fri 16-Aug-13 21:38:40

Just read the thread for this week. Clear as mud, you lot! grin

So, two questions:
- do I need to watch the 5 episodes I missed?
- is Al the stalker or not?

I am guessing no/don't know.

cake what's this all about then? Tech finally gave in to the nagging or is it for Great British Bake Off?

Questions, questions confused

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 16-Aug-13 21:41:40

Yay! You're back MsN! grin We've missed you.

You need to watch the Golf episode. Classic Mrs T, not to be missed.

Forget the other episodes.

We don't know if Al is the stalker. He seems to be admitting it but we think he is admitting lesser offences of stalking (if there are such things) but isn't the really freaky stalker.

No idea about the cake.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 16-Aug-13 21:49:03

grin thanks Anne. I have missed you all too. No signal on holiday so it was very isolating liberating.

Of course I must watch the golf one. Hope she did better than me and the DCs did at mini golf. DSs charged round the course, cheating and fighting. Another family were trying to play properly so we got a few hmm faces. It was ace! grin

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 16-Aug-13 21:51:07

Did you have your golfing clothes on? Mrs T gave an absolute masterclass on dressing appropriately for golf. Especially the socks.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 16-Aug-13 22:02:25

If jeans and a hoody count as golfing clothes, yes.

I will watch tomorrow. Yay to a bit of Mrs T! She's fab.

Raahh Fri 16-Aug-13 22:06:26

Great British Bake Off!! <penny drops> . I recently watched all the old series because I didn't watch them at the time. I don't go on't thread, I feel like an intrudergrin

cake

You can miss today's really, although it did reveal that all Al's admitted to us sitting outside Jaz's house 3-4 times because he 'wanted to be close to her', bleugh envy

Agree the golf episode was fab but there were none this week that I wish I hadn't watched iyswim.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 16-Aug-13 22:29:01

Thank you.

Off to bed now in my PROPER full size bed with no seagulls dancing on the roof.

<happy sigh>

toldmywrath Sat 17-Aug-13 13:37:52

Hope you threw bread on neighbours caravan so they had a nice seagull disco on their roof MsNo
Talking of crazy golf, I heard on the radio yesterday that complaints had been received at "poor taste" Hitler who seig heils & raises his arm when someone gets the ball in the hole-not sure where it is-just off to google.
Who on earth had that dreadful idea? It's grim!

i'm not watching live as the girls have taken over the tv.

I may be repeating myself, but I hate ScoobybloodyDoo.

Snobby bat is driving me nuts and the restaurant reviewing storyline is pissing me off.

She just killed his boyfriend?

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 19-Aug-13 13:59:36

Nothing can kill this thread, told. It is indestructible. We are all too sad devoted.

I'm not watching live today, watching Neighbours instead. shock

Hahahahahahahaha

Jasal storyline-yawn.
Restaurant review thing-yawn.

Come back Gobbyplod kids all is forgiven. And Cherry she can come back too.

Looks like it!

Not killed just injured grin

For goodness sake this stalker stuff needs to end!!

Do you know about ceramics? hmm

MrsReiver Mon 19-Aug-13 14:11:03

The boyfriend's overacting is ridiculous.

Maybe it is FOD?

Thank goodness it's finished. I am struggling after a week back watching it.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 19-Aug-13 14:13:41

I said it was FOD ages ago, Cinnamon. I therefore expect it isn't! grin

No OFAH today?

Oooo Warren from Hollyoaks is in tomorrows smile

grin AnneEyhtMeyer! I think it will be someone incidental but perhaps its a way to get rid of a cast member who wants to leave?

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 19-Aug-13 14:20:37

I am watching now.

Love Cynthia the neighbour! Used to squalor! I always keep some in for builders! She has fabulous lines.

MsNobodyAgain Mon 19-Aug-13 14:25:26

The thread will never die as I would just keep posting on it by myself grin

Missed it live today though. Blooming school holidays need to end quick as they mess with my viewing.

Just at the town centre. Only Sainsburys and M&S to go. Yes, I AM sad enough to be posting this from a car park.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 19-Aug-13 14:35:56

You wouldn't be alone, MsN. We are all as bad as each other. I even checked it when I was in America. blush

curlyclaz13 Mon 19-Aug-13 15:49:36

just watched as we braved our first baby group today, I think doctors is more interesting !
I still think tbfe might be the stalker.

I've just watched-& I wondered if it was FOD as well (only just occurred to me)

I'm not giving up on this thread either, even if I have only watched 10 mins of Doctors since the Wimbledon break. I'll start again in term time. I'm sure I will pick it up again very easily.

Wishfulmakeupping Mon 19-Aug-13 16:33:37

I did in and out if doctors but am very much 'in' at the mo- who is FOD?
Think its the doctor who's away with his friend who is the stalker not sure of his name

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 19-Aug-13 17:40:18

Wishful - FOD is Forehead of Doom - the nurse, whose real name escapes me. blush

Do you mean Kevin?

MsNobodyAgain Mon 19-Aug-13 17:48:10

Welcome wishful smile

Anne, FOD is Mandy!

MsNobodyAgain Mon 19-Aug-13 17:56:43

Also we only use a few acronyms now and again because we get bored! It is Doctors after all grin

6tl is Emma 'sixth time lucky', as the actress that plays her had bit parts in Doctors 5 times before she joined as Emma.

Howard is TBFE 'the bloke from Emmerdale'

Jas is 'Jizz' as she had a job on a sex chatline blush

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 19-Aug-13 17:58:16

Oh yes! Mandy! Thank you MsN! blush I never think of her as anything other than FOD!

Wishfulmakeupping Mon 19-Aug-13 19:06:08

Yes Kevin that's it. Also could it be chris? He seems 'too' nice. She will end up with Al now won't she.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 19-Aug-13 19:54:41

It would be great if it were Chris because then he could go to prison and we would never have to see him again. 6tl would have to leave because of the shame.

Sadly he is too dull to be a stalker.

Raahh Mon 19-Aug-13 19:59:15

I need to catch up on today.

The stalker will end up being someone totally random, I expect. Some patient she upset,or one of the two sex-line clients she hadgrin.

But, part of me still thinks the webcam is inthe orchid Al bought her when she moved ingrin

Raahh Mon 19-Aug-13 20:00:22

Anne- Jizz is too dull to have a stalker grin

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 19-Aug-13 20:06:18

That is true, Raahh. grin

Realism was never a strong point for Doctors.

ClayDavis Mon 19-Aug-13 20:10:33

There may have been some realism at some point. Years ago. They gave up on it quickly though. Am just catching up now. Bored of this restaurant critic thing now.

It used to be good, before I got sucked in properly last year I watched it occasionally and the patient based storylines seemed really good, I never watched long enough to realise how far fetched the surgery set up is. Rather to my embarrassment I told my MIL it was really good about the time I started watching last year. I was only going to watch for the 6 weeks I was off work sick, you lot seem to have made me keep with it grin.

ClayDavis Mon 19-Aug-13 20:56:56

The surgery set up is not far-fetched at all. I do actually need to see my GP. All I need to do is just walk in right? Then they'll see me straight away and I'll get at least one home visit as a follow up.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 19-Aug-13 21:04:32

That's right. They will also know your name as soon as you walk through the door into reception and will also know your full medical history and that of your extended family.

ClayDavis Mon 19-Aug-13 21:34:19

I've already reached the stage where they know my name when I walk through the door and recognise my voice on the phone. I do think they could have done a home visit when I didn't turn up for an appointment though. I'm only round the corner. wink

<Disclaimer: it wasn't my fault. My GP wrote the wrong date on the appointment card. The first I knew about it was when I turned up the following week and they didn't have an appointment for me. I don't makea habit of missing appointments>

AlphaBetaOoda Tue 20-Aug-13 08:00:52

Our doctors knows ds&I (&dd3 by association). Ds & I get offered double appts. GP tends to do consultations about us both anyway.

Am up to date for once & may even get today's live! As dd3 is going on a bus (anywhere) with my mum this afternoon.

Candidates for stalker

Al- admitted to some(but not all) & creepy but too likely?
Jimmi- gave Al an OTT telling off? Maybe he's a rival?
TBFE- made a new harassment policy so doubtful
Chris- too boring?
FOD- ?
Kevin- it's all stopped while he's away & he didn't want her to move out

AlphaBetaOoda Tue 20-Aug-13 08:01:27

But it might not be a mystery after all and was completely Al!

My GPs certainly don't know us well, it's a big practice (about 10 Drs and dozens of other staff). On arrival you book in by touch screen, so rarely speak face yo face with the receptionists. It is very efficient though, if you ring up at 8 you will always get seen that day.

I'm sticking with Jimmi BTW based on zero evidence as I haven't been watching

AlphaBetaOoda Tue 20-Aug-13 08:22:43

We book by touch screen too but between us we go at least once a week and ds & I are both complicated and having tests which are usually inconclusive. GP currently referring me in 3 directions as she can't decide which.

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 10:14:47

The receptionists at my docs are very wary of me, after the fiasco with my prescriptions/lying reception manager/fake practice manager. They are very nice when I go in. I have an extremely unusual surname, so it is hard to remain anonymousgrin. I did send dh to pick up things/take the dcsfor a while coward. I studiously avoid the woman, though, and only stay there because I really like the doctors. I hate the touch screen thingy. Most of the time, it's brokenhmm

Hadn't considered Kev as the stalker.

I've decided it's Stalker Val. She was strange. And stalk-y.
I hope it doesn't turn out to be Jizz's ex. That would be boring.

I don't think Freya(who?) is actually dead. It could be her.

It would be one of Jimmi's most interesting storylines for ages if it's him. He even managed to make his wife shagging his best mate and subsequent divorce, boring as hellgrin

toldmywrath Tue 20-Aug-13 13:06:35

Oh I love the randomness of real doctors appts & mishaps. You have to book 4weeks in advance at ours-altho' there is a walk in clinic every morning & you only have to wait about 2hours & it's not inconvenient at all for people who work mornings only. [sarcastic emoticon]
Raahh I hadn't realised that Jimmi had divorced whatshername.

We have to call at 8 for an am appt and 2 for a pm one but they always interrogate you ask of its an emergency or of you can come another time. Otherwise it's 3 weeks + for a dr and a few days for a nurse. I've been at the same dr since I was 9, have had 2 children since I've been there but they still don't know me. Dh has been there 8 years and they know him, very distinctive and asthmatic!

I don't care who the stalker is just want to find out! What if she's doing it herself confused

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 13:39:48

told- I'm not sure if they are divorced. I was making assumptionsgrin

MsNobodyAgain Tue 20-Aug-13 13:41:11

what if she's doing it herself

<head explodes>

grin

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 13:41:36

Will miss today's,so will have to catch up later. probably when I'm meant to be watching Holby. <exciting life emoticon>

[grin

MsNobodyAgain Tue 20-Aug-13 13:42:54

I've just watched yesterdays. Cynthia had some cracking lines

"I know he plays the pink banjo" shock

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 13:42:59

ooh- self-stalking!! She is a pants character, so maybe this is an attempt to give her a split personalitygrin

AlphaBetaOoda Tue 20-Aug-13 13:45:47

Ours is phone up, get offered a selection of appts with your chosen dr and usually at least one that day. They're really good but I'm not telling you who it is in case you all move here and the Doctors have just had a change round due to retirement & sickness but all new ones are nice too and quite keen on rule bending. One seems to take great delight in not following NHS rules.

Watching live today. With dd1 and popcorn

AlphaBetaOoda Tue 20-Aug-13 13:46:41

Cross posted self-stalking sounds very doctors

Wishfulmakeupping Tue 20-Aug-13 13:48:33

When is the stalker revealed?

MsNobodyAgain Tue 20-Aug-13 13:49:19

Week after next.

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 13:49:20

Well, the dds have gone in the garden, so am watching before they realise I've switched over.

HuRaahh (I bet you've heard that before)

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 13:50:31

The Mill has gone hi- tech- cctv!

Wishfulmakeupping Tue 20-Aug-13 13:50:54

So it can't be jimmi or Howard then

That's ages away <sulks> I want to know now

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 13:52:06

Ahhh, Mrs T and the extra breakfast placesad

MsNobodyAgain Tue 20-Aug-13 13:52:58

How about Mrs T?

Oh, it's him out of hollyoaks.

Wishfulmakeupping Tue 20-Aug-13 13:55:33

Thought he left hollyoaks to go to Hollywood hmm

Haven't seen Barry lately.

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 13:57:26

Where's Barry? Why isn't he investigating the car park?

I hope it isn't Barry, pining still for Juuuuuuliaaa.

I had a blue tabard i used to wear when I worked in a bakery. The pocket used to end up full of crumbs and bits of paper.

MsNobodyAgain Tue 20-Aug-13 13:59:06

At the rate we're going we'll have the stalker down to someones ex wifes brother dead dogs sister in law hmm

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 13:59:17

He's behind you!!

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 14:00:06

MsN- it will be a huge disappointment.

Or the Rev.

Or Mrs T's ex-husband, who has decided he isn't gay. Or dead.

MsNobodyAgain Tue 20-Aug-13 14:01:12

This song and Mrs T are getting to me.

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 14:02:57

Rihanna did it.

loathe Rihanna

Poor Mrs Tsad

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 14:09:48

oh dear. Now they will arrest him for indecent exposure.

Oh, the Crowded House original of this is my all time favourite song.

MrsReiver Tue 20-Aug-13 14:10:19

And now someone is mangling Crowded House. RAGE.

MrsReiver Tue 20-Aug-13 14:11:50

If you were being stalked would you prance around in front of a window in your scanties?

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 14:12:47

Very odd.

MsNobodyAgain Tue 20-Aug-13 14:13:41

Nope MrsR

Does anyone actually DO that? Sit down and watch tv wearing a bra and pants??? I must be uptight.

Is Al not the stalker then?

AlphaBetaOoda Tue 20-Aug-13 14:15:45

Only young slim things. Everyone is sticks to belly hiding.

I'm 20 mins behind, not even seen mrsT yet!

curlyclaz13 Tue 20-Aug-13 14:21:04

Glad it's not just me who wondered about stripping off the minute you get in the door !
It was a bit serious today !
tabard is indeed a good word as is haberdashery.

Mrs T is very sad

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 14:28:24

Mrs T needs cheering up. Damn 6tl and her restaurant rubbish. It should be Hestembe, bird watching and quaffing Rrrrrred bush from china tea cups.

MrsReiver Tue 20-Aug-13 14:31:02

No, and I definitely wouldn't sit on a leather sofa with so much bare skin. Sticky!!

My dh strips off as soon as he's in the door! He wears a pair of shorts in the house and that's it all year round. I guess there would be no bra photos without that odd practice wink

Is rev gone for good then?

Al admitted to sitting outside her flat watching her but nothing else so probably not the stalker.

Blimey Zara's got a bit of make-up on tomorrow!

MrsReiver Tue 20-Aug-13 14:41:02

I get changed into trackies and a tee when I get in for the day, but I never leave my bra on, it's the first thing to come off!

Raahh Tue 20-Aug-13 14:41:28

cinnamon- my dh is the samegrin.

I wonder if Zara/Elisabeth's real-life baby is causing sleepless night,hence the need for extra slap? If I was on telly, I'd have needed to plaster over the bags under my eyesgrin

And have you noticed -the snow has finally gone! Heatwave in December, here we come!

The only time I'm without a bra is if I'm in bed or swimming, hate the feeling of being braless!

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 20-Aug-13 16:05:17

Watching now.

Poor Mrs T. Love her tabard though.

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 20-Aug-13 16:05:52

Even my swimming cossie has underwires, Cinnamon.

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 20-Aug-13 16:17:37

Another reason to hate 6tl is that she has snatched away the possibility of Hestembe. They would be perfect together.

Mine used to AnneEyhtMeyer, before I lost 5 1/2st and most of my boobs! Although I do still feel a bit self conscious without them (the underwires that is).

Do you think mrs T would ever be happy with Heston, she's always feel a second class citizen?

MsNobodyAgain Wed 21-Aug-13 10:34:18

Boobage...sigh. Mine is long gone sad

Very little chance of watching live today as DDs friend is coming over. I don't know her very well so I'll have to be attentive.

Pass the cake someone.

MsNobodyAgain Wed 21-Aug-13 10:39:11

Just to add insult to injury, I have a spot at MY age!

Ooooh, the indignity blush

MrsReiver Wed 21-Aug-13 13:47:18

Peas and digestives - lovely balanced breakfast!

2 sleeping, 1 on his way and 3 watching a DVD so I can watch on iplayer now smile

Raahh Wed 21-Aug-13 13:49:18

Missed the first couple of minutes- did I miss anything important?grin

Raahh Wed 21-Aug-13 13:50:02

Kevin's ill?? Thought he was on holiday?

He didn't go did he? Got the train to have a weekend in Paris I thought? Was selling his tickets.

She looks very done up for a meeting.

MrsReiver Wed 21-Aug-13 13:51:47

Zara clearly applied her make up in the dark, with a trowel this morning.

Raahh Wed 21-Aug-13 13:53:50

Zara is starting to look like Morticia.

She always looks so lovely, this look is a bit odd

What's going on with Gobby's neighbour?

Raahh Wed 21-Aug-13 13:55:37

How many times can they re-use the loan shark/drugs/no money thing?

Eh? I have to see my gp for a repeat prescription.

I just put dh's repeat in a tub in reception

Raahh Wed 21-Aug-13 13:58:32

I order it online, but every three months have to see them. For things I've been taking 20 years. Pain in the bum and a waste of an appointmentgrin

MrsReiver Wed 21-Aug-13 13:59:05

Same cinnamon.

Raahh Wed 21-Aug-13 13:59:52

Zara's bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. grin Have some cake

Raahh Wed 21-Aug-13 14:00:37

ohsad

MrsReiver Wed 21-Aug-13 14:00:39

Ooh she's an escort!

Raahh Wed 21-Aug-13 14:02:48

Gobbyplod will recognise the madamgrin

Raahh Wed 21-Aug-13 14:07:50

Mary has an annoying voice.

Raahh Wed 21-Aug-13 14:09:22

Zara has a soft heart really.

Zara is lovely, just had a hard time that has toughened her exterior!

So she had cramps because she was just so hungry because she couldn't afford to eat and couldn't sell her house to get any money because of her cut working hours?

curlyclaz13 Wed 21-Aug-13 15:55:48

watching late again due to actually managing to sleep when lo slept ! thought Kevin had gone on holiday ?

ClayDavis Wed 21-Aug-13 18:23:10

Just catching up now. What's up with Zara's make up? Was she trying for the circus clown look?

Wishfulmakeupping Wed 21-Aug-13 18:38:39

Today's episode was weird everything was so unresolved at the end. She did have a ridiculous amount of make up on and blue eyeshadow urghhh but think Zara so pretty

toldmywrath Wed 21-Aug-13 20:12:28

Yes- I like Tabard as a word and as an item of clothing ! wink
Umm Haberdashery-lovely!
I thought Kev was on his hols-even if he didn't actually go to the Mauri place or Paris, he'd still be off cos it would have been booked off as holiday at work. Continuity is not their strong suit.

AlphaBetaOoda Wed 21-Aug-13 21:49:50

continuity is not their strong point
Think that's the unstatement of the thread grin

Caught up, lots of not making sense again. Need to get the stalker over & done now

I'm here but late as usual!

Wishfulmakeupping Thu 22-Aug-13 14:51:05

Thinking its chris now. It's chris or Kevin for sure. Rob was going a but OTT though about putting her off...hmmm chris, Kevin or rob

Raahh Thu 22-Aug-13 15:10:10

missed today, again. Will catch up later.

I find the Jizz stalker think just daft, since she's not been interesting enough to justify having a stalker.

I bet it's TBFE grin

I realise I have named the whole cast as suspects. Apart from baby Joe

Wishfulmakeupping Thu 22-Aug-13 15:11:50

I dunno raahh that baby Joe's a bit shifty looking if you ask me

Raahh Thu 22-Aug-13 15:37:19

Maybe he's inherited his dad's roving eyegrin

He's certainly been keeping a low profile of lategrin

I thought today perhaps its Chris! Was quite a sad episode though, MrsT missing her church again and Jizz vein freaked out by everything. I don't really like her as a character but I'm warming to her after today's episode.

Raahh Thu 22-Aug-13 15:52:24

maybe it is Chris, even though he's never seemed interested in her. And it will be blamed on the trauma of his dad dying, and she'll end up forgiving him. Or something.

I don't think it's Hestongrin. I'm not sure 'slag' is in his vocabulary.

curlyclaz13 Thu 22-Aug-13 16:53:15

Enough of the stalker story now, it is beyond boring and who would want to stalk her anyway ?!
nice to see the return of quack grin I thought that lad was going to slip some to MrsT !

toldmywrath Thu 22-Aug-13 19:02:26

A few weeks back when Jizz was out on her blind date, there was a hairy handed gent (that run amok in Kent-sorry just had to put the Warren Zevon lyric in)in the car watching Jizz. Chris doesn't have hairy arms-but I bet TBFE does. hmmm....

Will it be like Ruth and Michelle, awkward for a bit with everyone on the stalkers side and then forgotten about?

AlphaBetaOoda Fri 23-Aug-13 08:47:53

I wondered about Chris when it showed him rubbing her arm. Was Kevin with her when we saw someone watching from the car?
Hoping its not an unknown.

OTOH I actually liked 6tl today thought she was dealing with it all v well.

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 23-Aug-13 12:55:07

If its an unknown that's going to be disapointing they can't do that surely.

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 23-Aug-13 16:03:58

Just watched Wednesday's and now almost finished Thursday's.

Chris' arms are definitely hair-free.

I don't think it is Chris and it certainly isn't the lovely TBFE.

It has to be Kevin or Baby Joe.

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 23-Aug-13 16:16:02

Who is tbfe again?

ClayDavis Fri 23-Aug-13 17:24:30

TBFE - is The bloke from Emmerdale - Howard, I think.

Just about to catch up now.

AlphaBetaOoda Fri 23-Aug-13 20:35:40

Caught up. Why didn't they find the camera at Jizz flat? It would be easy from the direction surely?

So
Al
Kevin
Chris
TBFE
Jimmi
Heston
Barry
Anyone else?

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 23-Aug-13 20:45:58

Just watched today's. I am so happy that Barry is back! I hope he's in it for a while.

ClayDavis Fri 23-Aug-13 21:31:51

I was wondering that as well, AlphaBetaOoda. Surely you just trace the angle of the photos back to the area of the flat it might be in. The police should have been able to work it out.

I think you missed GobbyPlod and extra #3 from an episode about a year ago. I can't see it being one of the current main characters but can't really see who else it might be.

curlyclaz13 Fri 23-Aug-13 21:58:08

just caught up after a nightmare day, I still think it is tbfe. I am glad MrsT has gone back to church, do we know what happened to the other vicar ? she should have taken her tabard if she was going to clean ! and maybe a hair net for her wig grin

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 23-Aug-13 22:39:46

It can't be TBFE because I love him because he was there when the car was discovered. Also he would have to leave as they couldn't keep on a Practice Manager who did that.

What a cheeky cow that girl was today calling him dad! He is an Adonis!

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 23-Aug-13 22:40:31

If it is TBFE I will sob.

ClayDavis Fri 23-Aug-13 23:54:01

It can't be TBFE, surely. That would be completely random. Mind you it is Doctors, random hasn't stopped them before.

Wishfulmakeupping Sat 24-Aug-13 06:00:17

Why do you think it's TBFE curly?
Are we thinking its not chris or Kevin? Don't want it to be TBFE, think its chris, Kevin or a random patient/bit part character

curlyclaz13 Sat 24-Aug-13 06:59:26

When jizz first accused Al he seemed a bit too keen to sort it out internally, then he had his phone at the ready for the only plod in the village to call him witj his results of the thorough investigation grin Also he has access to her room. And I need a life.

AlphaBetaOoda Sat 24-Aug-13 07:47:50

Kevin was keen to discredit Al (although that wouldn't really fit with the obsessive stalker profile oops almost thought Doctors would portray real life then )
He's also been off in the last few episodes so could be at home watching the webcam.

I was hoping for FoD!

biryani Sun 25-Aug-13 10:47:42

I'm not really getting this story. Maybe I'm just a bit thick, but surely it's easy enough to trace an email to its sender? Similarly the pictures? If it's Al, surely he'd know they could easily be traced? If it's someone else in the office posing as Al, then this could easily be checked too. I think Al has more to hide than he's letting on, but I don't think he's the stalker. Too obvious.

I hope it's not Barry! But what about Mandy? She's taking a keen interest in Jas lately.....

AlphaBetaOoda Sun 25-Aug-13 11:18:12

I thought Mandy but in the preview for Tu it shows the stalker watching Mandy with Jizz.

biryani Sun 25-Aug-13 11:23:25

So Mandy's out of the picture too.

Raahh Mon 26-Aug-13 21:19:01

Just catching up with Friday.

I've decided Jackie is 'real' and is the stalkergrin

Raahh Mon 26-Aug-13 21:19:29

Barry!! I love Barry.

Raahh Mon 26-Aug-13 21:22:43

I like the new vicar. Might make Mrs T open up a bit. I bet she will be a good friend.

Raahh Mon 26-Aug-13 21:31:16

hmm would Gobbyplad really call someone a nasty lechy pervert?

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 27-Aug-13 07:36:10

Oh I had a dream about Doctors last night!

I was cycling with TBFE (unlikely on both aspects) and I realised the stalker was Ruth. We then went to see Gobbyplod and he confirmed it.

I am hoping I am wrong because if Ruth comes back into the programme it will tip me over the edge.

As an aside, TBFE looked very good on a bike. His hair was very ruffled. Sadly I woke up before I could get a snog. sad

Raahh Tue 27-Aug-13 11:56:14

grin

that was afab dream, Anne grin

Ruth was awful, so whiny.
Having caught up with Friday's, I feel a bit sorry for Al. He is creepy, but the e-mails were not his style at all. It's good that the Only Plod in the Village is on the case, though. grin.

TBFE's quiff has become such a feature, even the writers include jokes about it. He really needs to ruffle it up a bit. I'm sure you'll oblige, Anne

MrsReiver Tue 27-Aug-13 13:48:51

First time watching Doctors in a couple of days - WHAT HAVE I MISSED???

curlyclaz13 Tue 27-Aug-13 14:00:20

ooh pushy mum !

Just watching todays but I missed Fridays. Was there one yesterday too? Lost the thread I'll catch up in a bit smile

MrsReiver Tue 27-Aug-13 14:04:27

Did Al take those pics or are they print outs of the emails?

I bet there's no chef, the weegie is talking to himself.

MrsReiver Tue 27-Aug-13 14:06:02

That's not Al stroking the laptop screen!

FREE THE LETHERBRIDGE ONE!

curlyclaz13 Tue 27-Aug-13 14:06:12

ooh maybe it is Al ?

I still think it's Mandy.

Did wonder why they didn't find the camera but thought I must have missed it in Fridays episode.

Ah Al's figured out where the camera is.

Is this guy in the restuarant going to have a heart attack?

Oh yeah it's definitely a man!

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 27-Aug-13 14:09:39

I can't work it out. I want it to be FOD so she disappears, but it seems it can't be.

It definotely isn't Al, they've shown that now. He is going to work out who it is and be the hero.

Yes, Raahh, I am always ready and willing to do a bit of TBFE hair-ruffling!

I'm watching on iPlayer a bit behind

MrsReiver Tue 27-Aug-13 14:11:20

Oh Al, you're so misunderstood. She is going to owe him a serious apology if she survives.

Chris is busy with the gymnast so can't be him either or heston.

MrsReiver Tue 27-Aug-13 14:12:24

Jas seems to have made a miraculous recovery in tomorrow's episode.

shock at MrsReiver!

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 27-Aug-13 14:12:51

Oooh! That was creepy. That desk looked like one in the Mill.

Who has hairy hands? TBFE wouldn't wear that crappy light-coloured jacket. Neither would Heston.

Poor Al sad

MrsReiver Tue 27-Aug-13 14:14:55

We find out who it is on Thursday according to the Radio Times.

MrsReiver Tue 27-Aug-13 14:15:36

Why shock Cinnamon?

Finally!!!!

And I will be out all day, bugger!

MrsReiver Tue 27-Aug-13 14:16:41

Oh crap. Massive spoiler in RT if any of you want to know who it is. I shouldn't have looked.

Just didn't think about her possibly being killed!

curlyclaz13 Tue 27-Aug-13 14:17:08

How come only Al has figured out the camera is in her house ?
It's going to be someone random isn't it ? Did the mill have a new computer system installed ages ago and the techy is now a stalker ?

Might have to look, will pop to tesco later for a flick through wink

MrsReiver Tue 27-Aug-13 14:17:55

Ah okay, I think I watch too many CSI type things.

MrsReiver Tue 27-Aug-13 14:18:17

I'll PM you if you want Cinnamon.

MrsReiver Tue 27-Aug-13 14:18:39

By looking at the angle of the pictures Curly.

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 27-Aug-13 14:25:41

Oh PM please MrsReiver. I need to know!

curlyclaz13 Tue 27-Aug-13 14:29:35

Surely the police should have figured the camera out though ?
I know I know, it's doctors grin

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 27-Aug-13 14:32:31

To be fair, Curly, the police in Letherbridge consist of Gobbyplod, a woman who wants to be married and have babies with Gobbyplod, and Gobbyplod's silver-haired mate. It isn't exactly the Sweeney.

Yes please MrsReiver smile

toldmywrath Tue 27-Aug-13 14:56:10

I am so cross that NO ONE except Al (& all us thread posters naturally) has worked out the camera is in Jizz's house. How dim are they?? Poor Al-he is sorely misunderstood.
Yes I am very cross about the camera not being discovered. hmmphh.

toldmywrath Tue 27-Aug-13 15:17:14

Still cross.

This Thursday?

yes I'm still here, no I haven't been watching it

Raahh Tue 27-Aug-13 15:35:37

ooh- MrsR- can I have a pm?

I think it's going to be a random, isn't it? But not before Al is tarred and feathered. Poor creepy Al. All he wants is a woman to play darts and drink real ale with.

Will catch up later- made the mistake of cleaning the kitchen shock and lost track of timegrin

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 27-Aug-13 15:44:45

MrsR where are you?? Getting desperate! blush

Here, have some flowers and wine <blatant bribery>

Yes, but a woman like that threw herself at Al in a pub a few months ago and he didn't want to know Raah. He doesn't help himself sometimes.

MrsReiver Tue 27-Aug-13 15:59:15

PMs sent, sorry, Inconvenient Baby woke up.

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 27-Aug-13 16:51:03

Thanks for the PM.

I can't say anything without giving the plot away, but this is how my face looks now: confused alternating with hmm

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 27-Aug-13 16:51:20

But obviously not so yellow.

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 27-Aug-13 16:51:32

I've caught up now but am out all tomorrow (possibly catch up on hotel wifi?) and thurs (catch up instead of unpack?)

I am going to resist asking for a pm as I have been a bad girl by not watching, but will be at work on Thurs, so will be back in the afternoon to find out then.

I still say Jimmi.

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 28-Aug-13 07:14:32

MsN is not the stalker - although she would say that, wouldn't she? shock

MsN is in hospital having a few tests - I'll pass on your best wishes.

Oh no, pass mine on too please sad

MrsReiver Wed 28-Aug-13 13:52:30

Oh me too. We miss you MrsN!

Raahh Wed 28-Aug-13 13:52:57

I'm sort of half watching live today. Older 2 have gone to Chester zoo with grandparents, so I took dd2 swimming. Am shattered. grin

And my mithering on site stuff paid off-we've got tennis backgrin

Nice to be listened to even if it's only over a tennis grin

'Have you met me?' great line from Zara!

Raahh Wed 28-Aug-13 13:56:02

Has MsN got hairy armswink

Ahh, a dating website one. For prospective parents. hmm I met dh via a dating website. We've been together 10 yearsgrinThis bloke is a tad strange.

Raahh Wed 28-Aug-13 13:56:48

cinnamon- after 7 years, I feel I have arrived.

MrsReiver Wed 28-Aug-13 13:59:48

Me too Raahh, 10 years together, two kids and six years married.

Raahh Wed 28-Aug-13 14:04:16

MrsR- that's almost exactly the same as me! 10 years together, 6 married, 2 dcs together, and ds (who was 5 months old when we met- dh and I that is. Not ds and Igrin)

Raahh Wed 28-Aug-13 14:05:21

it's all bring set up to look like it is Al. But it clearly isn't. It can't be.

Raahh Wed 28-Aug-13 14:05:45

Finally!!

He's really creepy!

MrsReiver Wed 28-Aug-13 14:12:36

AT LAST!

ClayDavis Wed 28-Aug-13 18:02:29

Just in from work and catching up. This online dating guy is properly weird. WTF is going on.

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 28-Aug-13 18:36:37

I have passed on your best wishes to MsN. I hope she isn't the stalker, because that would just be awkward.

Haven't seen today's yet. Will watch later.

Congratulations on the tennis Raahh. You must be so proud. Is it here to stay or just for the tournament?

Raahh Wed 28-Aug-13 18:46:35

Just for the duration of the US open, Anne- but we will keep posting tennisuntil they make it permanent grin

toldmywrath Wed 28-Aug-13 19:08:43

Anne just seen your reply re MsNo-thank you & I hope she gets well soon. Not seen today's yet, but I will catch up in time for tomorrow's big reveal.

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 28-Aug-13 20:12:26

MsN sends her thanks for all your kind wishes and thoughts. She said "they're not a bad nest of vipers"!

She has no TV though - shock. She still made me tell her who MrsReiver said the stalker was though!

Raahh Wed 28-Aug-13 20:13:49

Hopefully all will be revealed tomorrow....

Raahh Thu 29-Aug-13 13:52:32

It's a bit odd. I really don't like him. Which i guess is the pointgrin

Raahh Thu 29-Aug-13 13:54:20

curlyclaz13 Thu 29-Aug-13 13:54:30

Do you think the kid in the waiting room is on to him ?

Raahh Thu 29-Aug-13 14:04:57

The kid is like the boy in 6th Sense- he see's odd people.

Raahh Thu 29-Aug-13 14:06:18

He has a strange wobbly head. it's very annoying. Is that Jizz's house? confused

Raahh Thu 29-Aug-13 14:07:24

ooh- his leg is recovered then.

Raahh Thu 29-Aug-13 14:08:09

All the flashback/fantasy bits are confusing me.

Garbage- love this song.

Raahh Thu 29-Aug-13 14:09:16

My brain hurts.

doctorsnoddy Thu 29-Aug-13 14:10:34

I was about to say that, is this bit in real time or not?

Raahh Thu 29-Aug-13 14:13:17

o....kay.....

Well, hopefully they won't drag out the reveal to Al.

Gus/Steve is crackers.

barebranches Thu 29-Aug-13 14:14:06

Welcome barebranches, wtf is the default setting for doctors grin join us we are all perfectly normal honest.

toldmywrath Thu 29-Aug-13 14:20:08

What a load of tripe! I started watching my cat sleep instead-much more interesting & no continuity errors/weather mishaps.
The bloke was wearing bright blue today, clearly a sociopath with no empathy (as demonstrated by his failure to apologise for his tardiness)
His flashbacks were in a lighter coloured shirt. This was total sh**-shame on you writers. angry

barebranches Thu 29-Aug-13 14:20:58

i left the tv on after the news... i always expected doctors to be a tame casulty... not evolving a sex dungeon!

<wanders in from work>

Who's Gus?

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 29-Aug-13 16:10:06

Just watching now.

Welcome barebranches! I hope you plan to continue watching?

Thank you told for the shirt information - it is making it much easier to follow the "plot". I use "plot" in a Doctors sense.

I agree with Raahh. It isn't right that the stalker is a random rather than a regular cast member. They could have used this as an excuse to get rid of someone. Like Jimmi

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 29-Aug-13 16:24:12

Ok, he really needs to wear another coloured shirt for the fantasy bits to make it easier to follow.

The writers on Doctors must have a key to the drugs cabinet.

curlyclaz13 Thu 29-Aug-13 16:44:08

grin @ Anne, I wonder if we are on drugs to keep watching grin

barebranches Thu 29-Aug-13 17:14:20

new... but can not garentee continued watching however i need to know what happens to the girl in the prison..!

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 29-Aug-13 17:41:30

You know you want to keep watching, barebranches. Go on, it's great!*

We're lovely too. We talk about all sorts! Some of it makes sense!

* Not strictly true

I just need to know who Gus is (please).

curlyclaz13 Thu 29-Aug-13 18:03:55

whoknows, I think he is just a creepy bloke who worked in the letting agents jizz rents her house from ?

Thanks! That sounds BAH.

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 29-Aug-13 18:28:11

I think Curly is right.

ClayDavis Thu 29-Aug-13 18:34:32

Oh God, I should not have opened the wine before starting to watch this. Not sure it would make much more sense if I was sober tbh. confused

Raahh Thu 29-Aug-13 18:42:07

Yeah, I don't think we've seen Gus before. In fact, iirc, it was all down to Al that Jizz got the house, and found out about the 'houses for doctors' or whatever the scheme was. He seemed to sort it all out for her- no agents were mentionedconfused. Obviously, that was so we'd think Al was the stalker, setting her up in a house to keep tabs on her.

Instead, it's just some random, who thinks hes Hannibal Lecter maybe

What I didn't understand (well, just one small thing out of all the other things I didn't getgrin), was the way Jizz kept changing into a lookalike/not Jizz during the estate agent flashbacks. Are we going to find out Gus had mistaken her for someone else, or was it just a very bad stunt double?grin

over thinking it

needs a drink wine

mrsdinklage Thu 29-Aug-13 19:00:11

I thought the oddness of todays episode was to show his state of mind (and I was scaredblush)
<note to self - buy wine for tomorrow>

Raahh Thu 29-Aug-13 19:02:14

mrs- I think so. Especially the annoying bit with the Garbage track jumping around and getting stuck.

ClayDavis Thu 29-Aug-13 19:07:59

Glad you mentioned the stunt double. I thought I was going nuts in the middle. I could cope with the flash back and spotted the shirt changes the Jizz that wasn't Jizz threw me completely.

curlyclaz13 Thu 29-Aug-13 19:23:27

maybe not jizz is an ex or a stalkee from earlier in his life ?

Raahh Thu 29-Aug-13 19:31:18

curly- there has to be a reason for it. Or not. This being Doctors and all. grin

ClayDavis Thu 29-Aug-13 19:55:47

I think I solved it. Re-watched the 1st 5 mins. I think the Jizz that wasn't Jizz is a figment of his imagination while he's wearing the dark blue shirt i.e. the current day. Jizz walks into the estate agent in one of the flashbacks and he asks her to sit down, then it changes to him in the blue suit watching bad stunt double Jizz walking in the door, then goes back to Jizz sitting down with the estate agent saying she's looking for a house. What the point of that was I have no idea. Presumably he's already kidnapped Jizz by that point.

Wishfulmakeupping Thu 29-Aug-13 20:01:18

Caught up earlier I'm not happy it was a random I didn't understand half of what was going on- how was it not Kevin it should have been Kevin! And where the he k has TBFE gone off to?!

Watching now, I thought the Jizz that wasn't was just a woman who came in that made him think of her? This then explained how he met her and was able to get in her house?

Think the flashbacks are what he's planning not what he's done.

Wasn't a great episode especially as it was almost entirely Gus! BUT my boys are still in bed so I'm relaxing with a cuppa before my mindees arrive as dh has actually left for work on time today!

ClayDavis Fri 30-Aug-13 09:54:22

Could be. I think there's a combination of flashbacks from how he met Jizz and previous meetings, things he'd like to do and the fact that he's kidnapped her.

Would he really have got the gun delivered to work? Seems a bit risky to me. What if someone had opened it?

Don't think he has kidnapped her as at the end the van was empty other than handcuffs and today's episode showed her and Jimmi visiting Al to find out who it is. Could be wrong though, I don't always pay enough attention!

ClayDavis Fri 30-Aug-13 10:39:05

You could be right there.

MrsReiver Fri 30-Aug-13 12:19:31

The radio times (my bible) said he is imagining her in the cage, but he's clearly planning it with the cage in his van

Or maybe he's just getting a big dog.

Welcome barebranches, now you've started watching you will be hooked.
