TWO FACES OF JOAN!
CLAIRE PONDERS HER NEXT MOVE!
Julia Roach has designs on the new Reverend, she soon finds out he does not practice what he preaches, when the sins of the father or mother, in his case, come back to haunt him...with Julia's life in danger when she encounters Georgy Porgy....


JULIA HAS BALL GAMES ON HER MIND!
JULIA HAS EYES FOR REV DUCKWORTH
FATHER LIKES MOTHER LIKES SON!
                                                      Joan was asked to do a second episode of  "Tales" and she plays a dual role of a sexy parishioner and a batty mother who is very unconventional.. The episode ran into trouble with the Bishop of Norwich, due to a scene where the Reverend stars hallucinating and imagines his prim and proper congregation of ladies are all naked.. The scene was set to film in a church in Norwich, but the Bishop objected to a bevy of naked women littering the church... Eventually the scene was shot in a crypt and ultimately the scene was cut down as to avoid the tv censors.. It proved to be a storm in a D Cup!! This episode was of the strange variety, with Joan playing two parts and John Alderton a deeply disturbed vicar.. But it's an interesting story and Joan is as reliable as ever in the dual role of sexy Julia and the over maternal Claire..John Alderton turns up later in Joan's career when he appeared in her BBC series "Tonight At 8:30", while Lally Bowers previously appeared in "Fallen Angels".. Joan was back for another episode of the series and will feature "A Girl Cant Always Have Everything" tomorrow....

  1. Thanks for posting so many vintage photos of Joan. As someone who owns many such photos, I'm amazed to see so many that I've never seen. Please keep them coming!!!
