My earliest soap memory ever was watching Alma Rudder and Cecile de Pouligniac gaslight Blaine Ewing on Another World. I don't remember all the details but I remember Alma dressing up in a Raggedy Anne doll costume and terrorizing poor Blaine. In my childhood memories some of that stuff was pretty dark and scary. That was back in 1982. Seems like a lot of us have dark soap moments that made impressions on us when we were younger. My earliest UK soap memory is from not too long ago: The first time I ever watched a UK soap was when I watched the Corrie 50th anniversary tram crash.
