While I haven’t been enjoying the murder of Frank Foster storyline as much as I’d hoped, I have been enjoying the extra screen time that has been given to his poor mother, Anne Foster.
While I often get the impression that as a character she has only been introduced to facilitate the current storyline (in the same way that poor Amber was used and discarded now Sian has left) I can’t help but enjoy watching her.
She’s very over the top dramatically and I think she’s one step away from going completely bonkers over Frank's death but after seeing her interact more with characters such as Norris, Mary and Stella I think she’d work really well as a long-term character.
In fact I’d love to see her taking over Underworld and turning the place into an almost military style operation or becoming arch nemesis with Norris and/or Sylvia over a tiny misunderstanding that ends up getting blown way out of proportion!
So whether or not the current whodunnit will see the end of Anne or not, I for one have enjoyed her time on Coronation Street and hope that some of you have embraced her as well.
