A bad re­cep­tion


Soap World - - THIS MONTH -

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.
