Last series saw a lot of focus on the new character of Ruth Winters with one of the most talked about storylines of the year showing Ruth’s suicide attempt.
Asked how viewers reacted to the storyline, Georgia said, ‘People coming up to me out and about have been very kind but I have to give a lot of credit to the writer Mark Catley and Ian Barnes who directed. They had to be very brave with it.’
As for this series, Ruth has to build her confidence up in both her professional and personal life to avoid going back to her old haunts. Of the debut double episode she says, ‘Its kind of quiet for me in terms of story but Ruth is very much being a doctor in the ED and is one of the people at hand when Tess is brought in’.
But viewers can see a few funny moments between Ruth and Toby whilst the drama is going on. ‘There’s bits with her and Toby that are quite light humour,’ Georgia reveals. ‘They are living together in Maggie’s house, now that she’s gone, and they have this kind of brother/ sister relationship where they love eachother but they can’t stand eachother. But at the moment they get on, so it’s quite sweet.’
