New TV Doc is smooth operator.

Byline: NICOLA METHVEN, TV Editor

NEW EastEnders doctor Anthony Trueman will set pulses racing when he joins Albert Square next month.

The dishy doc - who follows in the footsteps of Dr Legg and Dr Fonseca - makes his debut in the soap in time for Christmas.

And it isn't long before man-eater Kat Slater, actress Jesse Wallace, is planning how to get her claws into him.

Heart-throb Anthony, played by Nicholas R Bailey, 29, is the son of EastEnders B&B owner Audrey. Anthony enters the drama as Queen Vic regulars Dot - June Brown - and Pauline - Wendy Richard - organise a protest at the proposed closure of the Square's surgery.

Dr Trueman will operate out of the health centre - and Walford residents are not happy about it.

But Nicholas told The Mirror last night he was thrilled with his first major TV role: "I'm delighted to join EastEnders. It's fantastic to be part of such a great TV institution."

An insider said: "Dr Trueman is smooth, reserved and cool - without being cold. He's made from a different mould to the typical East End geezer.

"He's very understanding, and his love life is bound to be interesting!"
