THE QUEEN VIC BURNS

Soap World - - LETTERS -

In 2010, se­ri­ous trou­ble arose when Peggy in­ad­ver­tently caused Phil to lose all con­tact with his longes­tranged daugh­ter Louise (then-Brit­tany Pap­ple). Blam­ing his mother, Phil be­came re-ad­dicted to al­co­hol and crack co­caine and when Peggy im­pris­oned him in the pub to get him clean and sober a ram­pag­ing Phil struck back and taunted her about de­stroy­ing her cher­ished public house. Dur­ing a fierce ar­gu­ment, Phil set the pub on fire, only to be­come trapped in the in­ferno. Af­ter he was res­cued, a shat­tered Peggy stood on the Square and screamed at the fire brigade to let it burn, fi­nally real­is­ing what she’d done to her son. The next day, af­ter sur­vey­ing the ashes one last time, Peggy left Wal­ford, seem­ingly for­ever.
