Dear Coronation Street writers and production team.

We read about the planned axing of certain characters in Coronation Street on 5th Feb 2004. We will be sorry to see Harry Flagg go, he was a sweet character who was just starting to develop. We are not so sorry about the other departures. All characters have a shelf life, some shorter or longer than others and we accept that. Therefore we must confess we are baffled as to why the character of Tracy Barlow isn't on the list to be axed unless her turn will come next?

The character of Tracy in our opinion has become a disappointment to the show and is no longer needed.

Tracy isn't an amusing character unlike Karen MacDonald, Cilla Brown currently and Linda Baldwin before them. Tracy isn't convincing (probably because Kate Ford's limited acting abilities).

Most of all the character of Tracy has no substance and all she does is hop into bed with men and destroy other characters' lives. This has already become very dull and will continue to be more so the longer writers continue to focus episodes and stories all around Tracy Barlow.

Coronation Street has always been about different characters, some good and some bad and there has never been one star. However we have heard plenty of people say it should be renamed "Tracy Street" and things similar and its just getting too boring now.

There have been too many repeated stories recently in Coronation Street, not just with Tracy, but the over-use of Tracy Barlow has been the worst! Many people we speak to find her boring and an unbelievable character. She has also been in one story after another without any break.

What other stories can be told about Tracy that won't become repetitive and boring? Even on the South Bank Show recently some Coronation Street writers confessed they wanted to kill Tracy off after the baby story but other writers were adamant she still had lots to do?

Even the actress Kate Ford, who plays Tracy, implied in a Mirror and other newspaper interviews earlier this week, that she could see no where else for Tracy to go other than have a lesbian affair!

We don't want Tracy killed off. There is plenty of scope for Tracy to keep coming back for visits and causing trouble. However honestly where can you possibly take the character as a permanent resident once it all comes out how she :-

1) didn't sleep with Roy
2) destroys Karen and Steve's wedding
3) How can Tracy and baby live on the same street full time and Karen and Steve have a successful relationship? That baby is always going to be getting in the way of their stories?
4) Tracy drugged Roy which is a crime. She's forged a signature which is a crime, yet still is going around getting away with things.
5) How can they have Tracy sleep around and carry on as she has been doing with a baby in tow and make it interesting?

The only way Tracy Barlow now can work on a day to day basis is to give her a complete personality transplant, but that would be stupid because it would defeat the whole point of bringing back Tracy and turning her into everything they have over the last year or so.

The antics of Tracy Barlow are now starting to turn viewers away! Please stop this now before it goes any further.

Many Thanks for reading!
