I concur with spade she should make the news however briefly but she is a shoe in for the BBC website the mail and the guardian. She was in Corrie on and off for 15 years which should cement her chances. After all Lyndam Gregory and Sophia Haque got fairly wide online coverage and they wheren`t in the show very long .Does anyone here remember her being on the street? I know a fair bit about the show but can`t gage how important she was to the show at the time.

 

I only remember her from clips of the show when they ran tributes for other actors that were in it about the same time such as Pat Phoenix

 

 

I might have remembered her - the character's name is certainly familiar - but my parents' TV only got BBC, so I never saw Coronation Street until the telly eventually died and was replaced.  :pop:

You know what, I'd like to see Doreen Keogh on the DL in a tribute to this forum managing to get her Wikipedia entry changed from "dead" to "living". Surely a run behind the bar at the Rovers' Return in the 60s, plus her standout appearance in that Father Ted episode, should see her qualify as DL-suitable?

 

Not forgetting regular appearances as next-door neighbour Mary in The Royle Family.

 

 

Doreen Keogh's Wiki entry is only four lines long but I have a feeling she is the sort of person who should get an Obit and possibly the introduction to an article about the early cast of Coronation Street.

 

They did a Grange Hill Where are they now? when Terry-Sue Patt died

 

 

Hopefully her death would inspire a re-run of some of the really early corrie episodes.

I think, because she was the first ever barmaid in the Rovers, she might even sneak a quick 10 second mention before the break on News at 10 assuming its a quiet day.

A lot of these names were on my radar often from other sources but many of the Coronation Street and Archers ones were new to me.

 

Thanks for the research.
