 Profile
Patrick was technically superb and very much the doctor you'd want if you were unconscious and at death's door. He was a lady’s man and didn’t waste time getting involved with any pretty woman that crossed his path. He hid behind sarcasm hoping that no-one would see who he really was.

We finally saw the softer side of Dr Spiller after Rachel's death and realising that she'd lost his child. And then with his love affair with Lara. A meeting of equals that seemed destined for happiness until Patrick's tragic, if heroic, death.
