- sit on the lap of the character of your choice. (I think you'll find Kevins is already taken). grin

- get a home visit. (Almost guaranteed whatever your ailment)

- have Jimmi, Heston or practically anyone else provide free detective work.

...or you could just wait around to be screamed at by Gobby.

How can you resist? grin

To explain to any newbies <arf>, this is a very friendly thread that welcomes any fans of the afternoon soap called 'Doctors'.

I'll post the list of commonly used acronyms in a minute but they aren't compulsory, honest!

Oooh a new shiny thread. I'll be screamed at by Gobby probably. smile

Thanks MsN.

SDTP -sad Doctors thread participators, because that is what we are. And proud.
WTF?!- what the fuck- the usual exclamation of an SDTP, after an episode. Plots must not make sense.
BAH - boring as hell. An episode that fails to meet WTF standards.
TBFE - Practice manager Howard-a.k.a 'the bloke from Emmerdale'
Gobby - Karen the receptionist. Because she is.
Gobbyplod - Husband of Karen, Rob. Also know as 'The Only plod in the Village'
Chimmi - Cherry and Jimmi
Chaniel - Cherry and Daniel
Zaniel - Zara and Daniel
6tl - Emma, new locum, so named due to the fact she has been a different character 5 times before. This is 'sixth time lucky'
Jizz - annoying new moany doctor. So named after she took to sex chat line work to supplement income. All her clients very speedy in the finishing department.
Mrs T - Mrs Tembe, wig wearing receptionist. Judgemental Christian. Hopes of a Hestembe relationship diminishing-see Dr Heston
Dr Heston - unlucky in love bow tie wearing doctor, unaware of Mrs T's affections. Quite handy with a cricket bat.
FOD - Lesbian practice nurse Mandy. Annoying. Her girlfriend (Freya) is dead. we are not allowed to forget. FOD stands for 'Forehead of Doom'. It's mahoosive
Rect-Al - new Doctor Al. So named as he had a spate of patients wanting him to look up their arses biscuit

I've cut the list down at to be current characters only but it's still massive (bit like Mandys forehead).

Such a shame it will soon be on a breaksad

I have been slacking in my duties as an SDTP, but hope to make it up this week.


OodKingWenceslas Sat 15-Dec-12 15:19:29

I'm here . Think I'll be going for a home visit as I'm feeling rough today. sad

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Sat 15-Dec-12 15:59:49

I'm in, thank you MsN, hope you're feeling better soon Ood.

BiscuitNibbler Sat 15-Dec-12 17:20:22

Beautiful new thread, MsN!

Haven't seen Friday's yet. I have high hopes for this week though, I've read the Digital Spy spoilers I can feel it in my waters.

Will definitely be here during the Christmas break. I would miss you all too much over Christmas not to post!

WhoKnowsWhereTheMistletoes Sat 15-Dec-12 17:29:55

You can make friends over the most unlikely subjects on MN!

Terrywoganstrousers Sat 15-Dec-12 17:39:41

I think your description of Mrs T is most unfair! &#128530;

MsNobodyAgain Sat 15-Dec-12 17:52:14

Feel free to re-write it then. smile

Sparklingbrook Sat 15-Dec-12 17:53:48

What's wrong with it Terry? It missed out meddling busybody? grin

Terrywoganstrousers Sat 15-Dec-12 17:56:44

I am not witty. But I love Mrs Tembe and think of her fondly as a warmhearted caring nosy lady detective who does her best to be sensitive nowadays. I think she has come a long way since she started and she has become much less judgy.

Sparklingbrook Sat 15-Dec-12 17:58:14

'Lady detective'. grin She could have her own spin off series.

MsNobodyAgain Sat 15-Dec-12 18:02:59

Aye Sparkling. I recall us pondering a Hestembe Detective Agency a while back.

Scriptwriters should take that on. I can just imagine Heston rocking the Sherlock Holmes look. grin

OodKingWenceslas Sat 15-Dec-12 18:04:39

She is less judgy but I still don't like her. Though I don't particularly like any of them blush

MsNobodyAgain Sat 15-Dec-12 18:10:57


By the way, hope you feel better soon Ood

Terrywoganstrousers Sat 15-Dec-12 18:11:19

Oh, I think she is quite endearing really. Perhaps its because I'm pregnant blush

OodKingWenceslas Sat 15-Dec-12 18:15:36

Thanks. I'm just crap at being pregnant! blush

MsNobodyAgain Sat 15-Dec-12 18:21:38

Two pregnant ladies on the thread. Lovely!!! grin

we3kingsoforientRaahh Sat 15-Dec-12 18:25:31


in my defence of my description of Mrs T (who I love, btw), it was shortly after a few meddling episodes where she didn't come across too well. But the Jubilee episode remains her finest moment, and I will forgive her anything because of it.grin

Wow, a new thread - hello evrrrrrrybody. grin

Have decided my NY resolution is to watch more regularly. Am determined to sit down at some point for half an hour each day with a cuppa and biccies to watch the prog!

BiscuitNibbler Sun 16-Dec-12 14:34:13

Watching Friday's now.

shock at GobbyPlod saying bugger on a lunchtime soap!

Horrible story today. And I don't want Kevin to help his father either - hope that storyline is over soon.

BiscuitNibbler Sun 16-Dec-12 14:35:30

That is an excellent resolution, Horsemad. From January I will be able to watch live on Mondays as DD will start having a full day at pre-school. I am really looking forward to that!

Horsemad Sun 16-Dec-12 15:17:26

Ooh once they start full days it's amazing! grin all that tv you can watch grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 16-Dec-12 15:23:34

Has this been on yet? Have I missed it?
