Our Deirdre

Deirdre Barlow with EcclesAnne Kirkbride has died. Tonight, after a short illness, say the news reports on CBC and online. We know her best as Deirdre Barlow.

We last saw her flinging a trifle that didn’t set properly against the wall. Evidently being on the brink, she then went to visit a friend so that Anne could have a well-deserved break.

I have been hoping she’d soon return. The Barlow household, indeed the whole street, just isn’t the same without her.

She will always be The Weatherfield One.
