Leading neurosurgeon and father to Rosa, Martha, and Lewis. John (64) has passed his razor-sharp Scottish wit down to his daughters and he doesn’t suffer fools gladly. He’s married to a much younger woman, AKI SCOTT (29), whom Rosa could live without. After years of teasing Rosa for being an NHS puppet as he once was, John constantly tries to convince Rosa to come and work for him at the Apollo Hospital, a posh and private high-tech medical complex in Sevenoaks, Kent where he caters to the rich and famous. As a specialist in neurosurgery his hospital is also at the forefront of cosmetic brain enhancement including memory expansion, deletion, plus increased intellectual and physical aptitudes.
