Very quickly, to give you all a brief background on the Duckworth’s grandson Paul.
Jack and Vera have a very, very bad egg son named Terry. Terry was involved with Andrea Clayton, who got pregnant by him and gave birth in 1986. She ran off to university when the Duckworths (even Terry suprisingly) offered to support her and the sprog (I mean Paul) because she just didn’t want to be a Duckworth.
As many wayward children on Corrie, Paul ended up needed a kidney so Andrea returned to the street in 2000 to ask Terry to donate one. Terry initially says yes, but backed out of it at the last moment (also running away with a £ 25,000 cheque from Jack). Enter grandma Vera who ends up donating one of hers to the young child.
So now he and Vera’s kidney are back as Weatherfield’s answer to Jamie Oliver.
And for the record, the Duckworth’s have two more grandchildren by Terry: Tommy born Sept 9, 1992 (mom Lisa) and Brad Armstrong born Feb 14, 1997 by mom Tricia (ugh!) Armstrong (sorry, one of my LEAST favorite characters).
I’m going to try and get their character profiles up tommorow or Wednesday so that you guys have a picture of the whole Duckworth family saga.
BTW – just a word of warning if you do a google search for Paul Clayton, becareful in the Wikipedia entry because there are some spoilers.
