Gold Logie winner John Wood will join Neighbours for a six month stint.
The former Blue Heelers star will play strict medical man Martin Chambers, who has a reputation for taking his work very seriously. As new doctor Rhys Lawson (Ben Barber) starts to get settled in at the Erinsborough Hospital, he soon learns that Martin doesn’t suffer fools gladly.
Executive producer Susan Bower said: “We’re all thrilled to welcome John to Ramsay Street for what is going to be a great story.”
Wood begins filming this week and hits screens in September.
British pop singer and Ramsay Street fan Adele has also been given an open invitation to make a guest appearance on the soap.
