Sunday night’s series two finale ended on an emotional cliffhanger as Dr Ruby Walker (Amrita Acharia) told Dr Gabriel Varma (James Krishna Floyd) that she needed to work some things out – and asked him to wait for her. What does the future hold for their relationship? And will Ruby forge a relationship with her long-lost father?

Thankfully Dan Sefton’s heartwarming drama, which also stars Amanda Redman and Neil Morrissey, will return to ITV in 2019.

Six more episodes have been commissioned and filming is set to begin in August.

Executive producer Lucy Bedford said in a statement, “The commission of a third series is testament to the hard work of our incredible cast and talented writers, led by Dan Sefton.
