Suzanne "Suzie" Goodwin (née Birchall) was played by actress Cheryl Murray from January 1977 to December 1979 and then again in 1983. Suzie was a cynical peroxide blonde teenager who was more interested in having fun than personal responsibility. She made fast friends with Gail Potter and roomed with her at Elsie Tanner's house. Her first storyline involved her getting her foot stuck through Hilda Ogden's ceiling. Her father Bob was a control freak and he showed up in the Street to take her back home. When he tried to take her by force, Steve Fisher intervened, getting a punch in the face before Bob washed his hands of his daughter and drove off alone. She later kept company with a sugar daddy and found fleeting romance, which was her ticket out of the Street. Off-screen, she married Terry Goodwin but the marriage soon soured when it was revealed that Goodwin abused her, leading to her return to Weatherfield in early 1983. She moved back in with Elsie and as soon as she filed for divorce, went back to her old fun-loving ways. After Suzie tried to seduce Gail's husband Brian Tilsley away, Elsie threw her out and she left the Street again and this time for good.
