They seem less impressed with the return of Dotty.

Dotty’s blend of sass, intelligence and vulnerability ensure that Dotty will return with a bang this autumn.

And the now-teenager is soon wreaking havoc in the Square, bringing problems to his grandma's door.

A new actress, Milly Zero will be portraying her. (She was previously played by Molly Conlin.)
