Who’s This Paul Clayton, Then?

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.

    Wow Thanks..
    I’ve been racking my brains out (not many there I know) all weekend trying to remember Paul.
    Nice to have another youngster in the mix at Corrie..I hope he stays awhile. Poor Tyrone

    I couldn’t remember Paul either, except for the kidney bit. I wonder if he made steak and kidney pie as a thank you to Vera.

    Gee do you think he’ll be the new chef at Leanne’s resto?

    I think he’s fug.

    He’s got to be up to something. That’s unusual behavior for a young and apparently competent man to show up on the grandparent’s doorstep and essentially move in for an unlimited stay. The bit about placing the bet for Jack was a pretty obvious clue-in this young man’s up to no good. Hide your valuables, Vera!

    I like how you picked a particularly shifty looking facial expression.

    Yeah. Don’t trust him as far as I can throw him.

    Hi, just wondering if it would be possible for you to link to my Corrie blog. I’ve got yours on my page. My blog mostly posts comments about each weekly omnibus plus a few opinion and general Corrie pieces now and then when something strikes me.
