Dramatisation of Pat Phoenix and Tony Booth's life together
Sue Johnstone portrays Pat Phoenix (famous for playing Elsie Tanner for 24 years in Coronation street)as she fights terminal cancer. Johnstone is credible in the role as Pat looks back on her life from her younger days when she first met Tony Booth(famous for his role on Till Death us do part and also the father of Cherie Blair) through his battle with terrible burns and skin grafts before they are finally reunited some 30 years later, when Pat nurses him through his illness. Later Tony has the opportunity to return the favour as he cares for Pat who has cancer but spends much time fighting the condition without anyone else knowing. Worth watching for any fans of the Late Pat, although it is a slightly sanitised and very speedy coverage of a very colourful life story. Shown as one off drama in 1998 on ITV in the UK.
