Storylines

Anthony is the younger son of Patrick and Audrey Trueman (Corinne Skinner-Carter) and the brother of Paul Trueman (Gary Beadle). He is the brains of an otherwise dysfunctional family. His dodgy-dealing brother Paul always feels under his shadow. He works as a doctor in the Square and has a relationship with teenager Zoe Slater (Michelle Ryan). He gets engaged to Zoe, however the relationship falls apart when Anthony realises he still loves Zoe's mother, Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace), who he has dated previously. He rekindles his relationship with Kat but she breaks up with him after realising he is not who she wants. Anthony leaves the Square in 2003 to go traveling, but returns for Patrick's wedding to Yolande Duke and Paul's funeral.

Creation and development

In early 2000, it was announced that a new doctor would arrive in EastEnders. A few days later it was announced he would be played by Nick Bailey. He made his first os screen appearance on 11 December 2000. It was later announced his family would arrive later in the year.

In December 2002, it was announced that Anthony will begin a relationship with Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace). "Kat and Alfie is a romance just waiting to happen and we don't have to wait long," an insider told The People today. "Bosses are convinced they will become the next Den and Angie." Kat, who has only just rekindled her love with her daughter's former fiancé Anthony Trueman, will ditch him after embarrassing herself at a dinner party the Doc has taken her to.

"Kat and Anthony's romance has been on-off from day one," the insider added. "Kat first realises she has a thing for Alfie when he coaches her on table etiquette before the big date. And after the night goes pear-shaped she flings herself at Alfie saying, 'Anthony is not the man for me'. Alfie, who's fancied Kat since he gave her her barmaid's job, is delighted. They kiss and soon become a serious item."[2]
