Since its debut in 2000, Doctors has followed the fictional lives of NHS doctors, nurses, and receptionists, as well as their families and friends. Alongside these continuing story lines, they also have a story of the week which focuses on a patient and their individual life, usually for a one or two episode arc.

Trying to balance her father’s poor health and the fear that she will lose her job, Molloy realises that her addictions are running everything: her friendships, family and work.
