There’s a stalker on the loose who won’t leave Leela alone. I think at first she thinks it’s a joke, but then it gets a bit more worrying; she feels like someone is in her house and she keeps hearing strange noises. This leads her to go to the police and get DS Armstrong involved - it all becomes too much for her. DS Armstrong comes knocking at the door with a mobile number linked to the stalker. Leela is insisting that they ring the number straight away and find out who the stalker is and when they do, they hear the phone ringing in the house. Leela is totally creeped out. They realise that it’s in Peri’s bag, which leads them to think that Peri could be involved.
I think she would be mortified. Peri is going through a tough time with Cameron being put away and not knowing who baby Daniel’s father is, so Leela can kind of see why she’d act out. But at the same time, you’d never expect your daughter to do something like that. She’d be totally shocked but wouldn’t hold back from confronting Peri.
I think the first instinct for Leela is that it’s Cameron because he’d be after revenge – maybe it’s someone he knows in prison who he’s sent out to do these things to mess with her head. DS Armstrong actually mentions that there’s been a riot at the prison where Cameron is held and that Cameron has escaped. Leela is out of her mind with worry and thinks Cameron is back to get them.
Absolutely yes. You’re going to be in for a massive shock when it’s revealed who the stalker actually is and who’s involved. The levels that they go to are pretty terrifying. But it touches base about things going on at the minute. I’ve read in the news about stuff like this happening for real so hopefully it will give people an incentive to get help if they are being targeted.
No, when she was with Cameron and baby Daniel arrived, she tried to keep things together for her family and was desperate for nobody to know. But when Cameron found out he wasn’t the father, it was left for Leela to look after Daniel on her own and even though Louis wanted to be involved, they agreed that it was best for everyone for it to be kept secret. Leela thinks she is more than capable of doing it on her own, so I think she would be happy for it to stay that way.
Elisha (@elisha_skelton) on Twitter asks: How do you think Peri would react if she found out Louis is Daniel’s dad?
Oh my gosh, I think she would move out and say enough is enough. It’s very tough and a hard thing to explain and I don’t think Louis or Leela would be able to explain how, when and why that happened. So it would be really difficult for Peri to understand.
Uproar [laughs]. There’d be uproar, wouldn’t there? She’s trying so hard to look after her family and keep things under control, so I think she’d be absolutely devastated if Louis tried to change that. Leela thinks she’s more than capable of being a single parent and really doesn’t want that to change.
I’m not sure if she will find out but you’ve seen recently that Simone and Leela don’t really see eye to eye as it is, and Simone can put up a good fight. I think it would be good to see them come to blows but it would be awful for Leela because she is actually in the wrong.
I think Leela needs to find somebody that’s not a serial killer for a start [laughs]. Somebody who’ll look after her and slip into her family unit. She also needs to have a bit of fun, she’s still so young and has lost her way because of going through a tough time. It would be nice to see her happy and going out with Tegan, Courtney and Ste and living a more normal life.
I don’t think anyone would be able to handle her. She’s a bit wild in her own little way. The perfect person though… maybe it could be Zack?! They’ve got a thing going on at the moment where they have a really good friendship but it’s a terrible shame that his dad is her baby’s father… that’s a bit awkward [laughs]. Maybe she needs an older, stable man – that would be nice for Leela. She needs a lovely mature man to arrive in the village.
Yeah, it would be nice to have a storyline with Warren as I could see those two causing a bit of trouble together. I would love to say Anna Passey (Sienna) again. I had a little stint with her when I first started in the show and Sienna and Leela are a really good match so I’d love to have more stuff with her.
Aww! She’s nothing like her character so that’s nice and she’s a lot of fun to work with. She makes the day go a bit quicker and is so lovely so it would be great if there were more Lienna scenes.
