A bad reception
FORCED INTO MAKING SOME LIFE-CHANGING DECISIONS, Liz STARTS A NEW JOB BUT SOON REGRETS IT
An innocent casualty of her son Steve’s acrimonious divorce from Michelle, Liz is forced to sell her beloved Rovers Return Inn to help finance Steve’s settlement deal. With a heavy heart, the former landlady signs over the pub to new owners Peter and Toyah and begins work as the new receptionist at the nearby Medical Centre.
Unaccustomed to no longer being the boss of her domain, Liz quickly clashes with her hard-nosed superior, practice manager Moira. Left alone in charge of reception, Liz’s temper frays as she buckles under the strain of overflowing patient queues and a constantly ringing telephone.
Returning to the medical meltdown, Moira drags Liz away for a stern dressing down, further infuriating the former barmaid, who stalks off outside for a cigarette to calm her nerves. Caught in the act, Liz grits her teeth as Moira verbally thrashes her again.
To keep an even temper Liz gossips with Dr Gaddas and flirts with the male patients, antagonising Moira, who used to be the object of the men’s attention. Chastised by Moira, Liz becomes subdued and takes out her anger on Steve when he asks Peter to re-employ her at the Rovers as a barmaid.
Determined to win against Moira, Liz fights on but is deflated and speechless when Moira taunts her with comments about the better atmosphere at the Rovers since the change in ownership.
