Been watching old clips from the 80s in particular but also late 70s and the early to mid 90s. Its amazing how many characters have come and gone over the years, Sandie, Kate Hughes and her children; Rachel and Mark, Michael Feldman, not to mention The Skilbeck's and Joe Sugden. I was thinking of which characters could've carried on into the 2000s and 2010s, Sandie I think would've been an excellent character in the 1990s she was growing into a long term character by the late 1980s, I would've liked to have seen her interact with the Tate's, I think her and Frank would've embarked on an affair around 1992/93 after Kim's affair with Neil Kincaid. I also think Rachel Hughes could've slotted in well in the 2000s, as an honorary Sugden, I think she could've transition into the 200s much better than Kathy could've done, who in my opinion had become worn out as a character by 1997/98. Joe is another character that could've lasted and perhaps even become a stalwart of the village. What do you think?
