More of Dr Gaddas - Yay or Nay?

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog July 2017, reposted to this blog with permission.)

Dr Gaddas has treated the residents of Coronation Street for their ailments since she first appeared on screen back in 2014. She's helped treat Max Turner's ADHD, Steve McDonald's depression,  Beth Tinker's rash, Michael Rodwell's heart condition, Johnny Connor's MS, Faye Windass' pregnancy, Hope Stape's cancer and been sympathetic to an un-pregnant Eva.

With the expansion of the Coronation Street set in the coming months (you can read more on that here) I do hope we will see more of Dr Gaddas. I like her. Always unflappable, always keeps a secret, always honours the doctor-patient confidentiality that she's bound to.

The actor who plays Dr Gaddas is Christine Mackie and she has appeared in three earlier roles on Coronation Street as follows. With thanks to Corriepedia!

A Nurse based at Blackpool's Victoria Hospital where Rita Fairclough was briefly admitted in December 1989. More here.

Chris Jones between April and May 1992.

Salsa dancing instructor Bella in May 2010. More here.

Would you enjoy seeing more of Dr Gaddas in Coronation Street and finding out more about her? I say YAY!

I've thought for a long time that there should be a permanent doctor in the street. It must be hard to keep the same actor on call for the occasional story though.
