By far my favourite episode of the 1970s...is EP 1710;Silver Jubilee 1977....favourite EP of the 1980s is...EP 2631;Rovers Fire 1986...and PICTURED[ Bet saucily winking...] is the favourite of the 1990s;Bet and Raquel's drinks party 1994/EP 3756....the 2000s is EP 4745b; Raquel and Curly two-hander = Ep only featured these two characters in an emotional brief reunion; 2 Jan 2000!
The 1960s favourite Episode....? well i have to admit the Silver Wedding of Jack and Annie Walker;EP 194;Oct 1962 is the funniest by far...poor Elsie gets trifle spilled down her 'borrowed' frock...and Ena pushes the boat out and wears a glittery hairnet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Sylvesterfan 00:35, March 4, 2010 (UTC)
Annie Walker is definately my second-favourite character after Ena; i have again been fortunate enough to buy all her last eps from ITV; she disapeared from our screens when Doris Speed MBE fell ill in October 1983l.She sadly never returned, but i NEVER stopped missing her...and Bet's salute to Annie; by means of a framed photo of her in the Rovers back room was very apt!!!!!
