Vera is lovely. Well not lovely, but a nice person deep down who wouldn't bash, rape or kill anyone, like Joan Ferguson would.
My favourite anecdote is that when filming the scene where she says "You're a pig Birdsworth!", she said "You're a bird, Pigsworth!",
I have always liked this video. It is a news report on a group of British fans protesting at a local TV station to not cancel Prisoner. But get this they are protesting to keep the reruns on air. The series ended years earlier. I wonder if this protest worked or not. I don't think it did.
My favourite lady is at 0:48 "Bea, Lizzie, Doreen and now Rita, they're my mates... what am I going to do without them?"
Hehe! I can relate. Characters on TV can feel like your friends sometimes. 🙂
