EastEnders fans can get their first look at Dot Branning’s emotional reunion with Doctor Legg in these brand new spoiler pictures.
June Brown has been busy working on location today (July 25) with returning cast member Leonard Fenton, who’s reprising his role as Doctor Legg after 11 years away.
Although the exact storyline details are being kept under wraps for now, it seems that Dot will have reason to visit her old friend in scenes set to air later this year.
Dot is left disappointed when she calls to see Doctor Legg and he doesn’t answer, but just when she’s about to give up and walk away, he calls her back.
It’s a touching moment as Walford’s former GP warmly greets Dot, but what has brought them back together again?
EastEnders bosses have confirmed that Doctor Legg will be featuring in an emotional new storyline with Dot in the autumn.
The popular character appeared in the first episode of EastEnders in 1985 and served as Walford’s local doctor until 1997. He then appeared intermittently in the soap until 2007.
Speaking about his return, Leonard commented: “I am very happy to be back at EastEnders and am looking forward to working with June and the rest of the cast and crew again.”
June said: “It’s been 11 years since Dot last visited her favourite doctor, Doctor Legg, and it’s an utter delight to be working with Leonard Fenton again in 2018.”
EastEnders‘ executive consultant John Yorke added: “It’s a huge honour to have Leonard back in the show and to see him and June working together again for an exciting and emotional story.”
EastEnders airs on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays on BBC One.
