Neighbours’ David Tanaka struggles with guilt after Gareth Bateman’s death


After Gareth Bateman’s shocking death, Neighbours doctor David Tanaka is battling to conceal his guilt.

Last week, when Gareth died from injuries incurred in a mini-bus crash, David (Takaya Honda) and his Erinsborough Hospital colleague Freya Wozniak both stood by and did nothing.

After Freya (Phoebe Roberts) disclosed that the villain had severely attacked Aaron Brennan, David changed his mind about treating Gareth at the crash scene.

David appeared to be regretting his decision in Monday’s Channel 5 show.


Aaron (Matt Wilson) needed emergency surgery at the hospital when doctors discovered a haemorrhage on his brain as a result of Gareth’s attack.

A guilt-ridden David stated his idea that his husband was being punished in some way as a result of Gareth’s death during a private time with Freya.

Freya was warned by David: “I took a life, and now Aaron may suffer the same fate. I’m the one who has to pay because I promised myself that nothing would ever get in the way of my duty to a patient.”

Freya had a different opinion about the scenario, citing Gareth’s criminal record and the fact that he was unlikely to have survived his injuries anyhow.


Freya took David aside later, when it appeared that Aaron would be okay, and persuaded him to forget about Gareth’s death.

“Gareth doesn’t deserve our sympathy,” she said. He is a thief and a deceiver. And I’m done being a victim; I’m done with it. So, until we can put this behind us, he will win, do you understand? That implies we have to keep it to ourselves.

“Burry it and concentrate on your hubby.” He’s counting on you.”

Shane Isheev, the narrative editor for Neighbours, recently tweeted that David’s decision will have “ramifications up till the very end” of the show, implying that this tale is only getting started.
