I hope when the show returns after its “break” we find out that Sean and Izzy died from coronavirus.

But Mary survives!

Yeah, I’d want Mary to survive. I like her when the writing doesn’t make her out to be a moron.

Billy and Paul do nothing for me. The former is an annoying nosy parker, and the latter has that totally distracting smashed nose.

Precisely, R10. That nose is hideous beyond belief. They’re both annoying as hell.

I cried over Eccles, yet none of her family (except for Emma) did. Have they no souls?
|by Annie Walker||reply 12||04/08/2020|
Does anybody remember that fucking ridiculous twist where they found out Betty actually owned The Rovers after she died?
|by Annie Walker||reply 13||04/08/2020|
I think I'd stopped watching Corrie during that period, R13.
|by Annie Walker||reply 14||04/08/2020|
Dang Corrie, the last thing I needed during this quarantine was the death of Eccles.
|by Annie Walker||reply 15||04/08/2020|
They made Ken unnecessarily brusque with Emma. Of course it wasn’t her fault that Eccles had to be put down.
|by Annie Walker||reply 16||04/09/2020|
Poor Emma is getting shit on by everyone.
|by Annie Walker||reply 17||04/09/2020|
I really hope they apologize to her in the upcoming episodes. If Ken wants to blame someone, it should be Claudia.
|by Annie Walker||reply 18||04/09/2020|
Emma is sweet but she would get on my nerves after an extended period of time.
What do we think of the retirement home segments?
|by Annie Walker||reply 19||04/09/2020|
I can’t stand them, R19. I fast forward through them now although I’ve always liked the actor who played Norris.
|by Annie Walker||reply 20||04/09/2020|
Is it wrong that I kind of hope Covid-19 attacks that retirement home and kills everyone except Ken and Norris.
|by Annie Walker||reply 21||04/09/2020|
Is that tart Claudia going to cheat with Charles? It made no sense that someone as vivacious as she would want to settle down in a retirement village.
|by Annie Walker||reply 22||04/09/2020|
Again, I ask, has Norris mentioned Emily? She was living with Norris and Freida in Scotland, did they just dump her off the side of the road?
|by Annie Walker||reply 23||04/09/2020|
Emily’s got that nephew of hers she stays with. The fugly tree hugger who dated Toyah.
|by Annie Walker||reply 24||04/09/2020|
R24 Only if she has returned to Peru, that is where Spider is.

Spider could have moved back to London, though, where he lived with Toyah.

The girl who plays Asha is great but the girl who plays Amy is giving a high school drama class performance. They really need to finally get rid of her.

R31 She isn't the worst I've seen, plus you can really imagine her being the daughter of Tracy and Steve.

Looking like them isn’t enough-she makes annoying faces and fake gesticulates all the time.

Isn't it a wine bottle to the head?

As much as I hate Geoff, the scene where he asked for a refund because he caught an STI off a prostitute was quite funny.
The writers are doing a decent job with Asha's story.

Imagine gave to have sex with Geoff! Is this what he's spending Yasmeen's pension on?
|by Annie Walker||reply 38||04/27/2020|
I HATE, HATE, HATE Geoff! I honestly don't think I've ever felt this way about a character before. There has been other fictional characters that I loved to hate, but Geoff is different, I just totally hate him. When he pops up on the screen, I want to physically reach through it and strangle him.
|by Annie Walker||reply 39||04/27/2020|
Geoff’s response to being confronted with the STI news was particularly repugnant. And really badly written.
|by Annie Walker||reply 40||04/27/2020|
What did he say?
|by Annie Walker||reply 41||04/28/2020|
He accused Yasmeen of giving him the STI and called her an old tart, R41
|by Annie Walker||reply 42||04/28/2020|
Thanks R42 I hope he is shunned by everyone and loses everything he's stolen from Yasmeen. How come she hasn't found his camera?
|by Annie Walker||reply 43||04/28/2020|
R29 Oh, a stabbing it is after all! .. First the wine bottle to the head, then a shard from the glass bottle into his neck! .. But apparently not up his ass, R36.

Pity he doesn't die. How's Gail?
|by Annie Walker||reply 45||05/01/2020|
R45 The only reason I wouldn't want him to die, is I don't want to see Yasmeen go to jail for murder.
|by Annie Walker||reply 46||05/01/2020|
I think the police will discover the hidden camera and the videos on Geoff's phone and laptop. It'll be diminished responsibility manslaughter.
|by Annie Walker||reply 47||05/01/2020|
R47 I agree, the camera has never been brought up yet. I don't think he will die though.

This is a companion article at Digital Spy discussing some potential changes.
Here's a thought. If there's going to be less intimacy such as kissing and touching, etc., then maybe they could replace it with more gratuitous shirtlessness and walking around in underwear. .. Also, the one about enlisting production staff to also serve as extras in background scenes instead of hiring outside actors is a novel one.

Billy and Paul just don't work as a couple, IMO.

R60 Billy doesn't work as a Vicar, either, but his poor congregation is stuck with him. In my mind he is the reason Emily never returned to Weatherfield. She loves church but doesn't want to be stuck going to his church.

They may have gay inclusion, but I'm not interested in any of it.

I finally got the point of Nina. She’s been lovely in this week’s episodes.
Good god, the girl playing Asha grows more and more beautiful with every passing episode. And her acting is wonderful, too.

Why did they replace the boy who played Adi?
|by Annie Walker||reply 66||05/09/2020|
The official reason was he wanted to focus on his GCSE exams but I think the real reason was he was fugly and couldn’t act for shit.

The guy playing Dev has done shockingly bad work over the years but he was surprisingly moving last fall during Asha’s skin lightening storyline.

R78 Carla and Peter have a big storyline coming up in June. It's related to last year when she was having a breakdown.

I think they’re bringing on someone who Carla interacted with when she was undergoing treatment.
|by Annie Walker||reply 80||05/12/2020|
They are bringing in several people, and it's before she was in treatment and was missing. I hope she wasn't raped, it's meant to be a dark storyline.
"What Peter discovers is a hard thing to swallow but ultimately he will be all the more proud of her and love her all the more. But they have a rocky road ahead."

The soaps have apparently been given the green light to proceed with production but I think it will take at least a month for them to prepare. And I’m guessing there will be more than a few actors who will feel skittish about returning when the amount of new cases and deaths are nowhere near low enough yet.

Nothing, really. Just Gail moping that he wasn’t at her birthday “soiree.” And as she heads upstairs David says “Gail? Happy birthday.” Gail just smiles and goes upstairs.
|by Annie Walker||reply 88||05/14/2020|
R88 Agreed, "nothing" really happened but it was at the same time perfect. Gail, David, and Audrey have the easiest and most natural family chemistry of any "relatives" on the show. I can really imagine them as a real family.

R89, I also like Sarah as part of that unit. The actress looks particularly great nowadays, too.

|by Annie Walker||reply 106||05/20/2020|
R106 All of them are more modern than the others, but Gail's is always so cluttered and after Yasmeen's recent marriage, her house needs to be burned to the ground. The best house is Audrey's, but we rarely get to see it anymore, and it is on Grasmere Drive, not the Street.

Exactly, R117. They overreacted to his obviously offensive, drunken, loutish behavior. Cancel culture at its worst. He should be able to return to the show.

It was reported in the news.
|by Annie Walker||reply 121||05/22/2020|
Regardless of what anyone thinks of his behavior, I doubt ITV legal would allow Corrie to rehire him while he's still on the Sex Offender Register.
November 2017 news reports said he would be on the register for five years, so that wouldn't end until late 2022.
|by Annie Walker||reply 122||05/22/2020|

Edison's speech was just too heavy-handed. Yes, it's important to call out racism, but it was awkwardly written. The fact that the actor is quite wooden didn't help matters.
|by Annie Walker||reply 127||05/23/2020|
Allegedly there were warning signs that Bruno Langley was going off the rails, for a couple of weeks before the incident.
From what I've heard from those in the know he would often be noticed staring at the actress who plays "Mary", making obscene gestures with his fingers and tongue. According to a set assistant, he also kept he approaching the "Audrey" actress with requests like "Can you fit me in for a cheeky blow at the salon?" Confused, she said no. "Why, are you a bit too tight in there?"
The real warning alarm should have gone off when a cleaner found Helen Worth's topless pics in his dressing room, covered in sticky gunk.!

R150 totally agree. She's usually less than competent but last night she was abysmal. Plus the character is a gossipy, nosy drudge who forgets her own wrongdoings.
The character serves no purpose and that actress likely earns more than 4 nurses, just because she's perched in that motorised wheelchair. Sorry if that's nasty but she stinks up the screen!

That guy Carla had to sleep with, while not particularly cute, certainly isn't the greasy troll he could have been. And for people living in a squat they both look fairly clean.

I missed The Road to Coronation Street when it first aired in 2010, but I watched it last night and it was brilliant. The funny thing is that even though all of these characters (except Ken) had left the show before I was even born, I still know who they are because they were so iconic to my parents' and grandparents' generations.

R167, they made clear in last night’s episode that his condition is “extremely life limiting.”
|by Annie Walker||reply 168||06/30/2020|
R165 What makes the storyline so bad to me, is that the parent's partners are better than the parents. Steve should never have an overly dramatic story because he is best as comic relief. Leann can do drama, but in this storyline she has missed the mark. Nick has stepped up. Lately, he has been dull, but he has hit the right marks during this story. Tracy is always great, but during this story she has managed to temper her usual selfish bitchiness with genuine concern and even love, much like how she shined during the Daniel and Sinead story. They haven't suddenly made her into a copy of Deirdre but you can finally see Deirdre's influence showing up in our Tracy.

R172 yes he was, with his indecent proposal! It really helps that we aren't drowned in 6 episodes and we have to wait a couple of days for the follow-up to these "mini-cliffhangers", rather than just30 minutes, like before.
Carla takes over the factory again next week, I can't wait to see her back in charge after all this time. She excels as the fiesty but caring boss.
|by Annie Walker||reply 173||07/10/2020|
Watching the Shona storyline, I have to wonder: does she even have friends her own age (or rather, did she have any even before the amnesia)? We saw her speaking to Gemma a few weeks ago, but they were never really friends - they just came from the same estate. Outside of the Platts, the closest thing to a friend Shona has is Roy, who's about twice her age. And no one seems to find it odd that Roy has all these much younger women move in with him (Carla, Nina, Shona).
|by Annie Walker||reply 174||07/11/2020|
Carla was a long term friend through Hatley and they have an odd-couple relationship. No a is his long lost niece. Shoba was his employee who he is protective of.
I guess the show has a limited pool of similar aged people who it would make sense she'd be friends with. Maybe Toyah or the mechanic woman?
What's really weird is a mature woman like her (with a 20-something son) would ever be interested in weedy, immature, unbalanced hairdresser David.

Apparently Todd Grimshaw is being recast. I don't see the point of recasts unless the previous actor/actress was very young and didn't appear much. I'm not very good at suspending disbelief when a character has a new head. I still don't think of Adam Rickett's Nick and Ben Price's as the same character all these years later. (I never saw the original Tracy.)

Also, now that Billy & Paul are having more scenes together, it's becoming more and more obvious that they just don't work. There's no chemistry there.

Poor Gail almost flattened into the cobbles! Missed her.
I really like Evelyn and her attitude. Glad the actress who plays her received a Damehood.
I'm sorry they brought this new Todd in, I simply couldn't care less about him. And of course his intellect has been watered down - he was something of a prodigy as a teen.
My second reason for disliking his return is we have to see back-end-of-a-bus Eileen more often. Awful.
And who the fuck was ever consider Billy as an Archdeacon? He's an atrocious Vicar and hard on the ears/eyes.

When Gail was hassling her, Natasha should have brought up the time Gail broke the law by accessing her medical records and telling Nick she'd had an abortion. She should have been prosecuted for that.
|by Annie Walker||reply 332||10/22/2020|
R332 I believe it was Tracy's files Gail accessed to help Becky prove Tracy miscarried before she and Becky got into a fight and Tracy fell down the stairs. T claimed she lost her twins as a result of the fall, ending Becky's marriage to Steve.
Gail helped her as Tracy had lied in court, claiming her cellmate Gail (!) had confessed to murdering her husband Joe (!)
Gail did get fired from the Medical Centre for this.
If I'm wrong and Gail breached confidentiality with Natasha also, please forgive me. I thought Nick badgered Natasha into an abortion as he didn't love her/want a baby.

That was the first Oliver-centric episode that I actually found engaging. It was interesting to see how the various members of Oliver's family reacted to the ruling.
I think they've made Tracy too nice nowadays. As if she would tell Leanne that she wanted to give her a hug!

So the judge rules that Oliver should have artificial means of sustaining life withdrawn. I have to say I am HATING Leanne, but loving Jane Danson's acting. Even Steve MacDonald has seen reason.

Part of a very interesting interview with William Roache:
I’m very fortunate that Ken wasn’t some horrible vicious serial killer or someone you wouldn’t be too happy to play. He has been a guy who is trying to keep peace with his dysfunctional family. That I love and like. So I am very much in tune with what he is and what he does even though we are different types of people.
Can you tell us a little about Ken’s storyline in the 60th anniversary episodes?
I’m involved in a really interesting story that is very much Ken. In trying to save a part of Coronation Street which I really enjoy and like. And then I’m going to have big problems with my dysfunctional family. Peter is going to fall off the wagon again. It’s all really good stuff. Powerful and always well written, of course. It’s a strong storyline which I have really enjoyed filming.
Ken has always protested for what is right. He took part in the CND marches and anti-Vietnam War protests in the sixties. He always takes a stand for peace, love and a caring community. I am very much in tune with that. The one thing I want more than anything is world peace. Imagine if we had world peace? If countries didn’t have to spend money on armaments, that would solve pretty much every other problem we have. And that is a thing that is possible. If a lot of people seriously thought about world peace and being peaceful themselves, it can happen. And that’s how it will happen. Not through governments. Through people.
