Actress. Having vast experience in stage, television and radio for many years before she was cast as 'Annie Walker,' the landlady of the Rover Return in "Coronation Street," made Doris the perfect snobby landlady, who would always "Keep up appearances," but could tussle with the riff-raff as well. The younger actors on the set were said to have a 'healthy respect' for her. There was some descrepency in her age when she was admitted to hospital, and it was revealed that she was 84, not the 69 years she claimed. After her house was ransacked, she retired from "the street," and passed away 10 years later, aged 95.
