Only characters who left in 1990 that I would of like to had stayed on longer.
Tom and Vanessa Pippa-As I would preferred to kept original central parents around longer. .
Celia-I know people say her character had run her course and only reason why she run her course is because PTB did not want to used Celia and Fiona Spence to her full potential and I know I probably already answered my own question on this before but I think PTB at time just didn’t have lot interest in older characters at that point in time in diction show was heading as just had look on how they axed Floss/Neville/Morag and not bought in new regular older character until 1994 when Irene was made regular.
Interesting enough Fiona had actually decided to leave as she thought H&A was only going to last couple of years or so as remember reading old interview where she said she wants to go back to do stage work when H&A ends and maybe she already told PTB that she wasn’t going stay longer then her two year contract and that might of been reason why PTB kept Celia in background more as they knew she wouldn’t be lasting long.
But I think Celia was character that didn’t need storylines all time to keep her reverent as she had strong presence in community in being town busybody and she had family plenty of family in town.
Who knows maybe Celia could taken in teens eventually.
