Farewell Jack Duckworth

(This post, a combination of three originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog November, 2010, is reposted to this blog with permission.)

How sad was tonight's Coronation Street?  We all knew he was going, but by 'eck, it was done well.  Ta-ra then, Jack, lad. You'll be well missed.

RIP Coronation Street's Jack Duckworth.

Sad times indeed tonight as another Coronation Street legend goes to meet his maker. Here's a picture I took on a backstage tour of the set earlier this year. Jack Duckworth, RIP,

Tributes to Bill, and to Corrie have been pouring in since Jack Duckworth went up to the great pigeon coop in the sky last night. Read some of the good 'uns here: The Mirror's Jim Shelley and The Guardian's Mark Lawson and also in the Guardian, Ian Wylie

I actually sobbed last night. So sad. The way Ken looked at Jack as he left the pub. So nice to see Vera again.

It was a wonderful end for Jack. Perfect.

Hi, like Trudy I loved Ken's look and wave at Jack. And having Vera come back - what a treat that was. Hard to see the screen for my tears, though. I'll be writing about it on Sunday, but tonight I posted something on my meeting Bill Tarmey. As you asked, here's the link: http://dorothystewart.net/2011/08/31/meeting-jack-duckworth/
Thanks for these great posts about Jack.

Lovely story Dorothy and you are so lucky to have met both Liz and Bill!
