Liz McDonald (Beverley Callard) is to pay Jim (Charles Lawson) another visit in prison next week as she tries to get him to leave a beleaguered Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) alone.
Deirdre (Anne Kirkbride) has asked Liz to try and convince her ex-husband to call off the dogs where Peter is concerned. Liz states her case to Jim and pleads with him to leave Peter in peace, if only for the sake of the Barlows. But Jim agrees on one condition: that Liz continues to visit him regularly. And that if she doesn’t, then the implication is that something could happen to Peter…
“Liz is horrified but she agrees to that because she thinks that once the trial is over, she will be able to stop going to see him,” says Beverley Callard. But will it all be as simple as that?
