Trivia

Three different characters have been played by more than one actor: Stephen Snow (William Ash and Jason Done), Jacqui Richards (Marsha Thomason and Paulette P. Williams) and Cheryl Lampard (Kathryn Hunt and Phillippa Wilson). This excludes child characters who were played by twins because of the restrictions on how long children can work during filming.

Do I detect a pattern?
31 August 2000 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

'Coronation Street' is a good example of a long-running British drama that has been on United Kingdom TV's longer than any American soap. Other drama series like 'Heartbeat' and 'Ballykissangel' are right up there, and 'Where the Heart Is' is on its way to joining the ranks.

In only its fourth season, WTHI has quickly become one of the favorites. Now the show is popular in Canada, a few networks there have picked up last season to show. Unfortunately WTHI is not shown in the states, but I got my hands on a video taping of the second season. And there is no comparison.

WTHI is a great British dramatic series about real families, real problems, real people and real love in a small Yorkshire town. You can share the lives and loves of sisters-in-law Peggy Snow and Ruth Goddard. Some have called this series "sugar-coated" but don't knock it until you have seen it.

The British must know something we Americans do not, many programs they show are based on real life, not what the ideal kind of person is. Imperfections are not looked upon in the media. I think we should all take a cue. And watch this show if you can, I'd move over to England just to see it if I could.
