Emma Davies To Guest Star On Doctors

Actress Emma Davies is one of the latest guests to cross from a different soap to complete filming with the Doctors cast, in a one-off role for the BBC One Daytime award-winning drama.

Filming was a family affair as her father, actor Geoffrey Davies (Charlie Myers), appears alongside Emma playing her on-screen father.

In episode 64, Toys, due to be broadcast on Monday 27 July, Emma plays Lorna Myers, a cold and defensive English lecturer, who is forced to acknowledge the difficult relationship she has with her father Charlie – played by Geoffrey.

When Charlie is found wandering the streets bloodied and confused, Doctor Daniel Granger (Matthew Chambers) makes it his mission to find out what has happened. When he realises the blood isn’t Charlie’s, it becomes a race against time to find out whose it is and save them.

Daniel’s search eventually brings him to Lorna, who, still furious with her father for abandoning his family to run off with his mistress, refuses point blank to get involved. Can Daniel persuade Lorna to put her feelings aside and help him?

Producer Ella Kelly says: “It’s great to have Emma Davies on the show but we’re doubly delighted as she’s playing against her real-life father, Geoffrey Davies. It’s a poignant story with a surprising end, touchingly played by both these lovely actors.”
