Watching episodes from 1985/1986 I've really come to love Angie Watts. She's really complicated, she was can be warm and friendly, self destructive, such great depth and range. She's delightful in all her scenes.
Here's a video of her singing her hit song "Anyone Can Fall in Love" set to the EE theme (and I bought the song I liked it so much)

Angie made EastEnders what it was in the early days. She was incredibly complicated - funny, intelligent, strong yet weak, needy and rude. She was also camp done right. There was a show woman quality about her that no landlord or landlady has captured since: you truly felt she was a different person when working. She served many functions - she gave advice to those that needed it but she was also the shows comic relief at times and the dramatic leading lady.

And you never got sick of her. She didn't have a major story running throughout her entire period on the show. She was used just the right amount and Anita Dobson left the audience wanting more.

What a fantastic character.

Because her addiction to Den and wanting to hold on to her man no matter what was her major story, it defined her. Also because she left quite early on we never got to learn a lot about her away from Den, in a lot of ways Angie is an enigma. We never learnt that much about her, and what made her tick other than Den, and yet we felt like we knew her so well and cared about her.

I'm a huge Angie fan, the only issue i have is with her exit which seemed cold and clinical. I liked that she left with her head held high and ignored Den's final parting shots but it all felt so flat and emotionless

I shared this in the Den thread, but just in case anyone here didn't see it in that thread, I wanted to share this picture of Den and Angie.
I love this picture, even in just a pic you can see their charisma. Angie is really lovely here.
