Dr Julian Sierson, Surgical Consultant

Julian loves women and enjoys teaching. He has a particular soft spot for Eve. He genuinely likes her and would certainly have sex with her if she'd let him. Julian is married with three children. He likes his wife but hasn't been faithful to her since the first five years of his marriage. He's not an attractive man and most of his colleagues have no idea how he talks so many women into having sex with him. Women are his fatal flaw.

He likes being a surgeon and all that goes with it. If there is an old boys' club in medicine, he is the president. He is sarcastic and at time despotic.
