Tracy's back and Kate Ford's enjoying herself!

The general consensus on the return of Tracy Barlow is about 95% negative. I've not had a chance to watch yet, but I suspect I'll be making it 96% when I've seen Friday and Saturday's episodes.

The thing is, while Tracy is such an awful character, by all accounts, Kate Ford is a very nice person. Poor thing probably gets an awful lot of stick from the general public when she's doing her weekly shop at Tescos (or wherever she shops). In the Mirror today, there's an interview with Kate. Don't take any notice of the headline, at the end of the piece, we hear there's lots more in store for Tracy so it doesn't seem she'll be killed off at New Year like the headline says.

Kate says she won't be letting her 2 1/2 year old little boy, Otis, watch her on tv because she doesn't think he's old enough to understand that that awful person isn't really his mummy. Tracy spends the week ruffling everyone's feathers and pays for it when she's assaulted on New Year's Eve. We hear about Kate's background and how she came to acting as a profession. I was surprised to hear she'd had a part in a movie I had seen, The Affair of the Necklace but, alas, her part didn't make the final cut as often happens. It's a tough gig, acting!

Kate talks about her time as a full time mum and about her return to the screen where she's got an initial contract for 6 months.

Well make it 97%. What a horrible character. Her return makes me long for the days of Molvinic passion, the return of Joe's loanshark, even one more hot night with Deirdre and Dev. Yuck! Cringe!! FAST FORWARD!!!

Oh, and why isn't she barred from the Rovers? Prolly the same reason Steve didn't drop everything to get a custody lawyer. Weak plotting!!!!

I am sure Kate Ford is a very nice person and kind to small children and animals. But she cant act for toffee, wasnt keen on her grinning portrayal of Tracyluv the first time round and this time its embarrassing to watch. If they were going to bring her back they should have used another actress to make her more believable. The character has no impetus for me, you may as well be boo-ing at the Wicked Queen in Snow White. Plus the writing for her is appalling, how could she just come back and "take" Amy, and who on earth would believe the say so of a murder on the mumblings of a 6 year old, there is no PROOF that the Macdonalds paid for Max whatsoever.
