Dr Richard Locke

But when he treated tiny Dan Hebden (now Hebden Lloyd) for juvenile arthritis, he became dangerously close to Dan's mother, Shula. They started an affair. This destroyed Richard's friendship with Alistair Lloyd, and Shula's friendship with Usha.

When Shula could not leave her beloved Ambridge to be with him, he left the village in disgust.

It took some time, but eventually Alistair and Shula got together. Things could have been very different...
