TW & DW Connections
By DJ Forrest
I remember the very first episode of Hollyoaks, the characters, and the humour, with just a little bit of sadness along the way. At that time I could pinpoint areas around
that I recognised. Now over the years I’m lucky if I can
identify any of the areas that they use in the soap. Chester
The teen soap opera began in 1995, and had two of my favourite characters move on to Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps. I miss Jambo! Of course there were still the psychopaths that would keep our memories fresh with what they would do in the next episodes, and that side of the storyline has never changed much, although with the actors ageing there has to be a fresher plot, and Warren can’t get away with it ever time and indeed as the years progress, there can’t be many people left in the soap that he hasn’t screwed over more than once!
Later years we had the Brendan and Ste love affair that had us all asking, will they won’t they? The chav McQueen family who have been in the series for far longer than I’ve possibly had hot dinners, but as equally entertaining as the Battersby’s in Corrie.
But in between all of these dramas, hilarious carry on’s there are those actors that you’re certain you’ve seen somewhere before, and so, after Kai Owen declares that he will be in the teen soap later on this year, we thought we’d have a traipse through the village and uncover the cast and crew that we were certain we’d seen in an episode of Doctor Who or indeed any of the Spin off series’ since.
As ever, we’ve done the research so you don’t have to.
