Thanks for posting the article about why Days was doing so well. Its sad that Doug and Julie pretty much never returned to the frontburner. And it took Suzanne Rogers years to return to the frontburner following her return. I wish Peter and Kristian still had the same chemistry- I don't know if its the writing or performance but I just don't see it anymore.

A lot of actors left at this time, some of them very, very good - I'm sorry that Joe Gallison and Launa Sanders and others never got to return. (I know Gallison didn't leave until the early 90's, I just lumped him in). And Alex Marshall and Don Craig not even having any big exit is a shame.

When I first read some of Suzanne's interviews at this time I was a little surprised at how blunt she was but as it turns out she was very ill at this point.

I was surprised too. She almost sounded full of herself, which is totally different from what I've ever read from her in the past.

Bennye Gatteys took the role of Susan Martin the end of March. Bennye was last seen on The Brighter Day.

If Brenda Benet had lived, what do you think DAYS would have done with Lee? How long would she have lasted? What stories would you have done with her?

Interesting that article said DOOL received more fan mail than GH and AMC during the peaks of their time. I never would have thought that would be the case. But I do seem to remember reading that SOD said they had to eliminate DOOL actors from some of the SOD award categories to keep DOOL from sweeping all awards so this fits . AL "Where's the romance" Rabin knew what he was talking about when he said soaps were about romances and DOOL definitely had that going on.

It might have helped Doug and Julie get a good SL considering Pat, Maggie, Sheri and Thom were fixing to change DOOL and go adventure style ala GH. Doug and Julie faded out around '83.

I remember reading that originally Pat Falken Smith wanted to focus more on Julie when she returned in 1981 and have Stefano connected to the Doug/Julie story more, but those plans were dropped when she left.
