Joe Pasquale Plays Multiple Characters In Bizarre Doctors Storyline

Joe Pasquale Plays Multiple Characters In Bizarre Doctors Storyline

We're living through strange times at the moment. A lot of people are feeling scared and confused - and the writers of Doctors certainly aren't helping.

In an episode which aired earlier today (Thursday 12 March), Joe Pasquale made an appearance, which in itself is a bit odd. However this weirdness was exacerbated immeasurably by the fact he played numerous characters, sometimes simultaneously.

No, this wasn't the tragic result of a BBC funding cut, it was because the storyline followed a woman with a personality disorder who believed that everyone she met was Joe Pasquale. See, all makes sense now doesn't it?

No, no it doesn't.

Still, it seemed to have been well-received by viewers, with one person describing it as 'peak British TV'.

One person tweeted: "REASONS TO SELF-ISOLATE - DAYTIME TV. Doctors has a storyline where a woman thinks everyone she meets is Joe Pasquale. And Joe Pasquale is playing all the characters."

Another said: "Peak British TV right there... just give the writers their BAFTA now."

A third added: "I never watch Doctors. I'm usually at work and I don't watch sh***y soaps, let alone daytime soaps.

"For some reason popped it on. Some woman has a neurological disorder where everyone looks like Joe Pasquale... and Pasquale is playing all the characters! This is wild."

Recently, the 58-year-old comedian appeared on Good Morning Britain to talk about how he got ripped.

Yes, if you didn't know, he got ripped.

Explaining how, he said: "A little bit of weights, but I box a lot as well. I get beaten up a lot, but, you know, I'm there."

He explained he'd already toned up a little for his turn in ITV's The Full Monty-inspired show All New Monty: Who Bares Wins. However, Pasquale decided he wanted to take things even further after someone called him 'portly'.

He said: "It was because of The Full Monty and also we had a review on one of the shows of Some Mothers, one of the viewers said I was a portly Frank Spencer. Portly? I can't be portly."
