  • Neil Bolton, played by David Michaels
    reconciliation with Maggie David commented at the time Maggie is naturally stunned she has heard nothing from him for all this time and suddenly not only do I turn up on the doorstep but I am working at the same hospital The question was would she accept his renewed interest David and Kazia Pelka had already played the roles of lovers in a 1985 production of Shakespeare s Twelfth Night so series 7 promised some romantic chemistry But Neil Bolton made a dramatic exit from Heartbeat halfway through series 8 See Melissa s Heartbeat page for a fan s eye view of Neil Bolton Rhea about Neil Bolton The doctors who have appeared in my books have usually been fairly senior G P s who have lived and worked in Aidensfield for many years Neil Bolton a rather serious and somewhat aloof young doctor has now come to work in the area but his arrival did cause some concern not least in his estranged wife Nurse Maggie In a village like Aidensfield the doctor is very much a part of the community just like the vicar the nurse and the policeman and I am delighted that Heartbeat continues to feature

  • Maggie Bolton, played by Kazia Pelka
    mother whom she was nursing I ve enjoyed working with my on screen partners said Kazia David Michaels who played Neil and I have worked together before and Paul who plays Graham was great fun too Maggie does grow very fond of Graham You ll have to wait and see if this is what leads her to leave Aidensfield Kazia recalled her last scenes vividly I was in floods of tears and found myself seeing ghosts all over the set of series gone by she laughed My past flashed before my eyes When it got to actually filming my last scene however when I m meant to be in tears it wasn t happening at all I didn t know what to do The director was giving me a couple of minutes to prepare and it wasn t working I was meant to go into the pub for a surprise party with Jason and Fiona and I said to Fiona I just can t cry and she grabbed hold of my shoulder and said Kazia you re leaving leaving us forever and you ll never see any of us ever again And I went all right ready She felt awful about it afterwards but she knew how to get me started and it certainly had the desired effect Leaving confirmed to Kazia what favourite memory of Heartbeat she ll take away with her There were many on screen moments but I ll recall all the legendary nights we spent in Goathland with the fantastic crew On my last night there everyone was at the hotel to say goodbye and we had a sing song I always sang American Pie It was only when I was singing on this night that the bye bye bit of the lyrics hit me and

  • Jo Weston, played by Juliette Gruber
    gown nearly reduced Juliette to tears It was weird she admits Every last detail down to the garter was so accurate and felt so real I was fine until we came to film the scene where we had to exchange our vows Then I just broke out in a sweat I kept telling myself that I was only acting and shouldn t cry I could feel my bottom lip trembling which is what happens to me when I m very nervous or very moved by something Nick and I had to look into each other s eyes and hold each other s hands The service was intensely emotional but I managed to pull myself together eventually There is a special episode of the newly weds in Canada where they continue their married life Despite her relatively recent start in Heartbeat Juliette Gruber insists that she is happy to go when her screen partner does We get married in the series and so when Nick goes so do I It works very well in the story because it means that it will be a happy ending there are no broken hearts Juliette Gruber is a niece of actor Walter Matthau and
