Feathers are set to be ruffled when a new family arrives in Shieldinch. The Brodies will hit our screens in early October and we've got a few details about the new characters - for your eyes only.

Andy Clark will play Shieldinch's new GP Michael Brodie. He's married to Leyla, who's played by Maryam Hamidi, and between them they have three children: Nicole, Conor and Adeeb.

Gabriel Brodie is Michael's younger brother, who loves to live by his wits. He's played by Garry Sweeney. Garry's a familiar film face from Brit-flick successes such as Late Night Shopping and Small Faces.

Looking forward to seeing what you make of the new River City residents. They move in in early October! There will be articles about the new family appearing in the papers on Sunday 3 October so keep your eyes peeled.

    Well done river city for taking steps in the right direction to address the lack of racial diversity!!!

    Yes Kez, no argument there, however, I hoped they would have hired an actress that can actually act instead of that awful, awful, awful Leyla!
