Sheila Sabatini (Nichola McAuliffe) is a brilliant but caustic consultant surgeon at the Gillies Hospital whose sharp tongue gets her into trouble with fellow surgeons George Hope-Wynne (David Conville) and Neil Copeland (Emlyn Price).
They think she’s a ghastly woman, mainly because she likes to unearth their lazy and hypocritical behaviour at every opportunity.
However, her best friend Joyce and her anaesthetist Jonathan Haslam (Duncan Preston) think she’s marvellous. A relationship eventually blossoms between Sheila and Jonathan which results in them marrying.
The Granada series ran from 1989 to 1995.
