Dylan Keogh

Dylan is a brilliant clinician, but his abrupt and tactless manner means that he rarely thrives in social situations.

Dervla, to most humans, although Zoe took to his acerbic sense of humour and has become the closest thing that Dylan has to a friend in the ED.

When it comes to medicine, he always picks the most unusual cases, rather than the big resus stuff, and there’s nothing he enjoys more than a medical mystery.


Dylan grew up in the UK care system and it is implied he had been bullied and manipulated during that time, resulting in his unsympathetic outlook. Dylan suffered problems with alcoholism in the past. During his youth, he completed a summer of work on a building site.


  • Dylan was married to Sam Nicholls when he started work in the ED, before they finally got a divorce.
  • Dylan suffers from OCD, and has had problems with alcoholism in the past.
  • Whilst Dylan’s at work, Dervla goes to ‘Doggy Day Care’.
