Anita Dobson returns to Soap on BBC Asian Network

Anita Dobson joins BBC Asian Network’s daily radio soap ‘Silver Street’ this Christmas time. Anita plays Sandra Lester, the wife of football manager Kenny. Two years ago Sandra and Kenny’s footballer son Darren was convicted of a violent assault on an asylum seeker, and now they want to forget the past and are determined to move on.

Meanwhile Silver Street’s business tycoons Mushtaq and Zenab have just bought a football club, but are feeling out of their depth in ‘the beautiful game’. Could their inexperience be Sandra and Kenny’s opportunity to rebuild their lives and maybe even settle in Silver Street?

Anita’s first ‘Silver Street’ episode is broadcast on 3rd December 2007 1.30pm.

In addition to her famed role as Angie in EastEnders, Anita’s versatility has taken her to the National Theatre as well as various musicals including ‘Hello Dolly’ where she plays the lead role, and which tours in 2008. Anita is starring in ‘Santa Claus the Musical’ at the Alexandra Theatre in Birmingham. The show opens on 7th December 2007.

Silver Street is broadcast daily on BBC Asian Network (1.30pm) with a Sunday Omnibus (2pm) and is available to download for FREE as a Podcast at
