Default Queen Bea

The show's very first top dog.

For me, a lot of Bea's storylines were quite strong and powerful (rather like the woman herself), such as the Amnesia and the episode 352 escape plots. I enjoy the 'later' Bea episodes (around 190 to the late 300s) much more that the material from where the show is still 'finding its feet' as it were.

Bea's constant battle with Joan Ferguson wasn't only a long-running story, but also very gripping. From their feud sparking such events as 'the Great Fire' through to Fergie arranging Bea's last ever transfer to Barnhurst, where the top dog meets her maker during a massive riot.

Many thanks to the ever-wonderful Val Lehman for bringing such a superb character to our screens!
