When was Tanquir first described as a tropical island nation? I don't remember any particulars of its geography or economy. I wonder if they confused the island on which Cecile held Cass captive with the nation.

What was the GL Quint/Nola version of Tanquir like? 

Do we know whether it was the same HW constantly peddling Tanquir from soap to soap, or various writers pulling it out of the P&G grab bag? 

I believe Tanquir was first described as a tropical island on AW, when the location was used in one of Cecile's capers (maybe 1984-ish?).   Previous to that it had been a Middle-Eastern stand-in for Saudi Arabia on both AW and Texas.  

I don't remember Quint and Nola's version of Tanquir, because I wasn't watching GL at that time. In fact, this is the first time I've ever heard Tanquir was used on GL.

No, it was not one head-writer going from show to show using Tanquir.   William and Joyce Corrington were the head-writers of Texas when the location was first used on AW in the lead-up to Texas, so that was their creation.   On GL, Doug Marland and Pam Long wrote for Quint and Nola, so either Marland or Long was responsible for Tanquir on GL.  And I don't know who was writing AW, when Tanquir was part of Cecile's plot -- but it was not Marland, Long, or the Corringtons.

Richard Culliton and Gary Tomlin wrote the initial story when Cecile dumped Cass and sailed off to become queen.

Margaret DePriest wrote the story of Cecile kidnapping Cass from his wedding to Kathleen.

...and Laiman/Passanante in June 1999 when the presumed-dead Grant Harrison showed up in a cameo, happily sipping a cocktail on Tanquir.

Oh would be so nice to see how Cecile lived in Tanquir LOL, they could have created a storyline in which some characters went there and we could actually see it, the best opportunity was when Cecile kidnapped Cass, wouldn't it be easier for her to take him there?

The point of the kidnapping was that she needed to get pregnant to provide her husband with an heir. I think both the king and his people were supposed to believe the baby was the king's so she couldn't very well flaunt Cass all over Tanquir. It probably also saved money on sets and cast not having to have the royal palace. She managed on a shoestring with Ving Rhames and Walt Willey.

I can't imagine Mary Matthews and Lenore Curtain in the same universe as this garbage.    My opinion only.

Others share the same opinion. Me included. But AW post-1980 wasn't even the same show as AW pre-1980. I look at it as two different shows.

Ugh, it is just like those darn Matthews to think they are better than a woman who was the actual Queen of Tanquir!.  I mean, just because Lenore was able to have her wedding at the country club doesn't mean that she's classier than the daughter of a European Countess.  Cecile may have been married a few times, but at least she didn't leave her scarves in the apartments of unsavory men. (lol)

I do wish Robert Cenedella’s run on AW hadn’t been wiped. The small amount of audio clips from that time left me wanting more lol

The Wayne Addison saga and then Lenore’s murder trial and Walter keeping the secret that he was the killer all sounds so great and soapy, despite what Lemay said about it in his book.

He did follow Agnes so a lot of her very popular characters and stories were in place.

True, and he didn't have that luxury at TD. I think he was the first in a long line of short-lived head writers after 5 years of the Pollocks.

Cendella writing on TD was similar to that of interim HW. He was good at holding things in place, because not much happened during his tenure on TD.  He focused on a bunch of contemporary issues. 

I say it was no harm, no foul under his pen.
