I don't know about you, but I loved the very short cameo appearance of Eric's wife, Doris Babbage, on Coronation Street last week. She must have only been on screen for a few minutes but her presence lit up the cobbles like nothing's done for a very long time, for this fan.
She's got the makings of a great Corrie woman. With a great name, some great lines "Ooh sit down before you break a hip!" and that look about her suggesting she's not all she's claiming to be.
And I'm sure there was a glint in her eye, that summat was going on between her and the solicitor. She might have swanned off to Antigua on the inheritance she'll receive from Eric's fortune in vinyl floorings, but this fan would love to see her make a more substantial return to our favourite soap.
Our blogger Graeme even named Doris as his Corrie hero of the week.
What do you think? Yay or Nay - should Doris Babbage return to Coronation Street?
If you're still not sure where you've seen the actress who plays Doris, have a look here where all is explained.
