Well there hasn't been a post about Emma Cunningham aka Ray Daley's Girlfriend in Minder. So I hope I wouldn't mind being the first to start a thread about the other show she appears in. Emma Cunningham started to appear in Medic in 1992, shortly after her first appearance in Minder.
I'm currently watching season 2 at the moment. It's actually a bit easy to watch Medics. There's been five seasons of Medics. After the first season, I'm not sure what happened. The series had taken a hiatu, maybe because it wasn't as good as it hoped for and returned in 1992 with Cunningham's first appearance. She plays Dr. Gail Benson, senior house officer. A nice tag next to her name being a Senior House Officer as if it's a lead role, maybe a way to get people watching because in the show after her appearance in Minder at the time. She plays a typical damsel-in-distress who learning to cope in the ward while the really mature aged 50 year old doctor guides and mentors her into taking control of the hospital while she can take care of the patients also.
A few scenes of her like a typical female doctor trying to banter, have fun and to just simply trying to enjoy life for anyone who wants to stretotype (Myself) that she should always be wearing green and a mask all the time. She'll get Ray Daley (fame) on you. #sarcasm
Unlike Minder, she gets alot of screen time. I think her appearance in Minder helped her get the role in Medics and he really gets loads and loads of screen time. Myself personality, maybe nice to see Cunningham being taken care off in the television industry. I would think during and after Minder, she really left an impression of being casted in a role in the London underworld for her to really step out and stay safe maybe away from the drama from Minder.
While I did like her in Minder, I thought she was great, myself personality, I wanted to know what the typical 90s female was like when she dated a strong friendly guy like Ray back then, that's why I was interested in watching, because when I was growing up, all the females I knew where using internet with emails and etc, so I really wanted to see for myself. Now she's in Medics, I suppose that's a different story and maybe I can settle down a bit, hence why I'm watching this now.
DVD Releases if anyone's interested. Seasons 1, 2 and 3 are out. Cunningham isn't in Season 1, so don't bother getting that season unless you want to see how the series changes or anything. Emma Cunningham appears from Season 2. The possible reason Season 4 and 5 wasn't out because of the amount of episodes within those seasons have, so it does tell me it wouldn't profitable if those seasons were released, which is a shame, because maybe they really use the hell out of Emma Cunningham's character in those seasons because people really enjoyed watching the show at the time.
