From the Cross­roads mo­tel to Easten­ders’ Queen Vic

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SEVEN DAYS -

When Patrick at­tended the funeral of an old drink­ing buddy re­cently, he was ap­pre­hen­sive about see­ing his friend’s wife, Joy, af­ter so many years. De­spite the pass­ing of time, there was clearly still no love lost be­tween the pair. Lucky for the age­ing Romeo his friend Cora was there to fight his cor­ner, as she tried to con­vince the hos­tile widow that Patrick was no longer the booz­ing wom­an­iser of old. But just what lengths is Cora pre­pared to go to in or­der to change Joy’s mind? The role of the dis­ap­prov­ing Joy is played by for­mer Fam­ily Af­fairs ac­tress Carolyn Jones, whose soap ca­reer started with her stint as ‘tart with a heart’ Sharon Met­calfe in the much lam­pooned English Mid­lands-based Cross­roads.
