Your Comments

"So nasty, pretending to to treat Susan like a 'victim' knowing all along that he raped her! Then sleeping with her - that man is truly my best villain."
Hannah, Yarm

"The man's pure evil, but is played by a very talented and lovely actor. His character had a difficult storyline but Mark Aiken made it really believable."
Claire Walker Lancashire

"Guy is a evil man, who ruined Susan's love life and career! He convinced her into seeing her again having the odd drink after work, trying to get to come out more after she had been raped! And then it hit her, it was him that had raped her and she wasn't going to let him get away with it!!"
Kylie Smith, Devon

"He was so good, I had no idea it was him until the last minute."
Kerry, Scotland
