character profile: Nick gates
Nick Gates is the enigma. Hannah’s ex from her undergraduate days, he’s now a highly promising surgeon at the hospital, driven by his work. He seems unnerved by Hannah’s return, caught between his old feelings for her and a real sense that he doesn’t want her around. Things are further complicated by his new relationship with junior doctor, Stella, which is becoming more serious than he intended.
character profile: hannah carter
Hannah Carter is the new girl with emotional baggage. The daughter of a former consultant at the hospital, she suffered a breakdown (in theatre) in the aftermath of her mother’s death. After a year away, she’s back to resume her medical training. But while she appears determined, Hannah remains fragile, and she’s prone to disturbing visions. To make matters worse, Hannah discovers her ex-boyfriend (and first love) Nick is now seeing one of her fellow junior doctors.
character profile: stella collins
Stella Collins is the most ambitious and driven of the new medical intake, and doesn’t appear to have time for serious relationships. But her fling with Nick is developing into something more significant, and so she finds herself in conflict – both on a professional and personal level – with Nick’s ex Hannah.
Character Profile: Adam Hussein
Adam Hussein is Nick’s close friend. A solid, if apparently unremarkable doctor, with a strong sense of his own self-importance. He’s the eldest son of a successful middle-class Asian family. Adam appears concerned about Nick’s workload and worried about the complications Hannah’s return appears to have brought into his life.
Character Profile: Rafee Hussein
Rafee Hussein is Adam’s roguish younger brother, with whom he’s in constant conflict. Rafee has always struggled with medicine, and had it not been for Adam’s support he might well have dropped out before now. But the brothers are now set on collision course, as Adam gets wind of Rafee’s new illegal activities within the hospital. Hannah too is unsure whether to trust Rafee and his conspiracy theories.
Character Profile: Jess Black
Jess Black is the baby of the new intake, and seemingly out of her depth at the hospital. But she’s well-liked and supported by the others who are keen for her to stick around. And she might just surprise them all.
Character Profile: Juliette Randall
Juliette Randall is a highly respected chief general surgeon in the hospital. A close friend and colleague of Hannah’s mother, she wants to play the role of mentor to her dead friend’s daughter. Whilst appreciating Randall’s maternal eye, Hannah’s keen not be given special treatment.
