Associated tropes:

Staff Nurse Rhona/Ramona Waters


A blonde nurse who has frequently appeared in bed/medical room scenes since 2008.

Associated tropes:

  • Ascended Extra: Started as an unnamed character. Got named around mid-2009 and the role was expanded.

Zoe Hanna

A senior consultant in Emergency Medicine and former Clinical Lead, who has been with the show since 2007.

Associated tropes:

  • Character Development: Has gradually become less opposed to commitment, first through a long-term relationship with Jordan, and then actually agreeing to marry Max a few years later. Slightly derailed when she slept with a stranger on her hen night out of habit, though she genuinely loves Max and wants to stay with him.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has her moments, especially when Dylan's around.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Dylan. She's one of the few people to appreciate and match his snark, and he was the one she chose to walk her down the aisle.

Kathleen "Dixie" Dixon

Lead Paramedic, who has been with the team since 2006.

Associated tropes:

  • All Lesbians Want Kids: Subverted; she's quite happy with her dog, Little Abs.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: Lived with Jeff and their dog, and called him her soulmate on multiple occasions. Naturally she was heartbroken when he died at an accident scene in front of her.

Mackenzie "Big Mac" Chalker

Introduced as a porter in 2007, then trained as an Emergency Care Assistant, and is currently a Healthcare Assistant in the ED.

Associated tropes:

  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's very friendly and loves his work, but he did fight in the Falklands. Hurting his friends is a bad idea: Tess nearly getting killed in series 23 caused him to take up vigilantism for a while.
  • Hidden Depths: Is fluent in British Sign Language due to his mother being profoundly deaf.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: He served during the Falklands War, and suffers severe guilt and self-loathing over the loss of most of his friends. During series 23 he assumed a vigilante role on the violent Farmead Estate.

Dylan Keogh


A consultant in Emergency Medicine and former Acting Clinical Lead from 2011-2012 and from 2014 onwards.

Associated tropes:

  • Alcoholic Parent: His father, who eventually abandoned them. When they're reunited twenty years later, Dylan notes with disgust that his parent hasn't changed a bit.
  • Awesome by Analysis: Specialises in diagnosing unusual cases, to the extent that he finds dealing with the typical major cases boring.
  • Broken Ace: Is a brilliant doctor, especially when it comes to rare diseases, but has a lot of people issues, OCD, and very few friends.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He lives on a house-boat, brings his dog into work, and has raised asocial behaviour to an art-form, but he's a fantastic doctor.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Sarcasm makes up the majority of his dialogue, and he looks very uncomfortable whenever he has to be sincere and/or sensitive.
  • Disappeared Dad: His father walked out on his family when Dylan was fifteen. Dylan's mother didn't take it well, and he ended up in foster care for nine months.
  • Dr. Jerk: Oh so very much. He's incapable of not snarking at his patients, and that's on a good day.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's abrupt, insensitive and sarcastic, but he genuinely cares about his colleagues and patients.
  • Super OCD: After weeks of erratic behaviour, Zoe finally got him to sit down with a psychiatrist and admit he has OCD.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Zoe. She's not afraid to snark back at him, and is one of the few people he considers a friend.

Ben "Lofty" Chiltern

A staff nurse who joined in 2014.

Associated tropes:

  • Butt-Monkey: He's very awkward, and screws up a lot. He's gradually getting better.
  • The Klutz: He's a good nurse, but is incapable of going even a single episode without dropping things, walking into things, or falling over. Dylan especially finds it exasperating.

Max Walker

A porter who has appeared since 2013.
