Kate: I suppose when the series began, Sally was mainly there as Susan's paranoid and needy best friend. She was belligerently single, twisted and desperate. But now all of the relationships have blossomed, and we are seeing more of her independent life. This new romance with Patrick is a big thing to Sally, and it's mutated into something much more for both of them. Now she is living a dream. Patrick really turns her on! He has disgusting self-confidence and is not called tripod man for nothing. He has no morals and very little brain! It's inspired writing, and Steven has written a lovely part for me! Sally and I are very different, but I love working on her vulnerability - on the surface she's cruel, but that's more fun to play than niceness!
