Evil medic Dr. Yusef Khan is set to step up his campaign in the coming weeks as he continues to try and take control over all aspects of his ex-wife, Zainab Masood's (Nina Wadia's) life resorting to taking away her son Kamil from her and even beginning to turn violent towards the helpless woman.
The Daily Star reports that the Eastenders character will threaten Zainab by telling her that she won't get to see her son unless she obeys his every wish. Yusef will also attempty to murder Zainab's husband Masood Ahmed (Nitin Ganatra) by setting the B&B alight leaving the medic himself and Zainab's older son Tamwar trapped inside.
A source for the show told the newspaper that Yusef is: ''seriously unhinged''. They added: ''He really is Doctor Evil and probably the worst villain we have had on the Square. There is no limit to what he is capable of. Zainab has been under his spell for months and it's only going to get worse. Christmas will turn into a nightmare for her."
Nina Wadia has also recently revealed that scenes to be aired soon will see Yusef turn violent towards her character Zainab saying at the time: ''I've filmed some quite horrific scenes where Yusef gets violent towards Zainab. I don't like all of that to be honest, I have to be so on the ball when filming it. But Yusef pushes everyone to the limit, and he could potentially hurt anyone."
Yusef's story will continue right through until it's explosive climax at Christmas but the question is, will the dastardly doctor survive to pay for his crimes or will he be the victim of his own wrongdoing?
