Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 18 July 2008
Many of the young people who are "into" Coronation Street will probably never have heard of Pat Phoenix. And what a shame. For us slightly(!) older viewers Pat's "Sreet" character "Elsie Tanner", was what every actress today, in every soap aspires to be. Pat was soaps first superstar, and Elsie Tanner was a rough diamond, the best of friends with those who didn't judge her, and a woman equally at ease pulling hair, and scrapping with anyone (usually in the street) who crossed her. These 3 episodes are a decade apart from each other, and you get to see Elsie Tanner in some fabulous scenes, none no more moving and emotional as the final 1984 episode, when Pat plays Elsie for the very last time. Walking down Coronation Street for the end scene Elsie stops and smiles as voices of her many confrontations come flooding back. The best ever "Corrie" exit, for one of it's greatest stars. And a fitting tribute to Pat Phoenix who succumbed to lung cancer almost 2 years later
