A good idea. I wish they would bring Joe back. Mervyn Watson should hang his head in shame. I'd rather it had been news that Tom Merrick had died, as Tom was a bad nasty man and Jack hated him.
I wonder if Joe did father a child at some time. Maybe Christine was pregnant in 1976 when she left the village for the last time and never told Joe.
I also have a storyline idea, that Sita Sharma ws pregnant with Jackie's child when they split in January 1986 and that she never told Jackie. And a twist is that she gave birth on 26th August 1986, the day Jackie's mother Pat Sugden died. Oh how I wish I was EP or a writer for the show Benny1982 (talk) 22:49, January 15, 2020 (UTC)
