I don't think Tommy Orpington would go within three miles of Corey. His agent should have done some background and said "We can't be seen with this kid. He's involved in bashing and murder. Even if he didn't do it, we can't go near him." Yet there they are, treating Corey like God's Gift.

I enjoyed Audrey's comedic replies but it was hurtful. Audrey has more than atoned for being a neglectful mother by being there for Gail for the last 40 years, bailing her out, almost being murdered by Richard, employing her kids, etc.

Really agree about Evelyn, glad they are allowing her to develop because the actress is terrific, Maureen Lipman.
I think Tyronne's loudmouth mum Jackie was too established and too selfish to have brought up the baby, so they couldn't change the back story realistically. Wasn't Jackie the one who looked out for Deirdre when she was in prison?

That's what I mean, R145 suggested the twist of Evelyn being Tyronne's mum but I don't think it would work based on his mum already being clearly established and not the kind of person to selflessly raise a baby that wasn't hers.

I should have figured it wasn’t Kelly. They’ll need to have her in the story when her dad returns and she forces him to get the truth out about Rana’s death so Imran will finally get justice.

No Corrie tonight (Wed. 8 Sept.) due to football. We get the verdicts on Friday. My prediction is that both get convicted, but I'm not feeling sure about that.
Next week brings sadness to the street when a "beloved" character dies. It's already been revealed that it is Norris Cole. Yes, you probably already thought he was dead. Also, Imran and Sabeen seem to have kindled something. A a new couple break up.

Imran and Toyah had potential to be an interesting couple but the writers squandered it. They quickly became dull together. I don't care if he leaves her for Sabeen.
I think Kelly will be convicted, although I suspect it would be very difficult to get a conviction in real life if the surviving victim insisted she had seen the defendant try to stop the attack. Surely that would more than constitute reasonable doubt? I think England and Wales still have the double jeopardy law, so if Corey is found not guilty he can't be put on trial again even if Abi finds proof that his dad bribed Eli to lie under oath.

The Criminal Justice Act of 2003 can bypass the double-jeopardy rule if there is "new and compelling evidence" introduced. Whether Corey's father's bride rises to that is for HM Courts & Tribunals Service to decide.

Speaking of our dear Emily, I was hoping we would get another Zoom appearance from her for Norris' sendoff. If I was the producer, I would inquire if she would record a few hours of stuff that way, to pepper her in storylines. I think there is something special about using an older beloved character in a technologically advanced way.
The actress seems to be in good health and her husband died. I doubt the she will ever return in person, though if she wanted to I'd say yes please. But, the zoom stuff shouldn't be too taxing for her and give her something to do.

Rita was evacuated quickly from bed. Unfortunately she didn't have time to grab her orange wig, so she refused to appear on screen.
The one who should have more screen time was Carla, she only appeared at the end

Have to admit I cried when Natasha said goodbye to Sam. (Didn't shed a tear for Johnny, though.)

Well, they’re obviously holding on to him so he’ll go postal and murder Sean, Fizz, Beth, Kirk and Izzy before turning the gun on himself. Like…duh.

Oops, yeah, forgot about them. I’d add them to Simon’s hit list. I still want Beth/Kirk to be gunned down, too, though.

I don't hate Kirk. Yes, he's cringey, but there are worse characters.
I'm actually quite liking Fiz for the first time since she got with John Stape. Jennie McAlpine is finally playing her as an adult woman, rather than relying on that babyish, exaggerated way of speaking. She's flawed (look how poorly she handled Hope's fire-starting) but she feels more like a real character now.

Maureen Lipman is now officially Corrie's first dame. For some reason I thought Julie Goodyear was one as well, but apparently she's only an MBE.

I really like Maureen and her character.
R282 well said, I agree too, the actress actually did some good work and I no longer hate Fiz

I fear this is only a blip for Fizz. I think Jenny McAlpine will once again have to resort to her cringe inducing cutesy voice and facial mannerisms.
|by Anonymous||reply 285||October 27, 2021 10:01 PM|
If the writers compare the social media response to last week's episodes to this week's, they'll realise the fans don't watch Corrie for gimmicks and special effects.

I thought they were going to have him break with Emma this week as some of the things she was saying to him were so stupid and inane, I thought how can anyone find this interesting?
Why can't scriptwriters stop making her so silly? She is a Ray of sunshine but can be grating

I like the actress who plays Emma but I’ve been fast forwarding through all her scenes with Alina, Steve and now Curtis.

They've made Emma a bit TOO dim. She's turned into a caricature.
|by Anonymous||reply 291||October 31, 2021 5:14 PM|
R291 I agree. There is a fine line between dim but loveable and just annoyingly stupid. Sadly, Emma has been leaning much too much to the later.
I don't blame the actress. I think she is doing a great job. I blame the writers, some of the things they have her say would've made Rose Nyland roll her eyes at her.
|by Anonymous||reply 292||November 1, 2021 1:32 AM|
Completely agree. They did this with Maria too, made her deeply dim to contrast her with Carla, back when Liam was cheating on her.
One of her lines while devouring a celeb magazine was was "Do you think Minnie Driver really drives a mini?"
Give good actresses decent lines!
They did nail it with Rosie Webster though, she was an amusing bimbo used to good effect.

I remember a cute scene with Emma and Maria chatting in Roy’s and Emma uses the term “literally” incorrectly, as so many of the kids do nowadays. Roy corrects her, Emma stands her ground and Maria jumps in with “Seriously. Don’t bother. You’re not going to win.”

I just don't buy Kevin and Abi as a couple (although Abi did look surprisingly sophisticated in her wedding dress). My dad thinks Kevin and Sally should get back together and Abi should end up with Tim. Incidentally, he didn't know Abi and Tim are together in real life.
|by Anonymous||reply 295||November 3, 2021 11:20 PM|
R295 I always expected the writers to pair Sally and Kevin again but they actually did a really good job matching Tim and Sally. I don't see Abi and Tim together. The problem is Kevin is so regular and an everyman.
Anyone else thinking Carla is always dressed in drab colours and clothes? In her first few years she was very glamorous and dressed really well. Seems like wardrobe just stick her in dark this-and-that nowadays.
I understand it suited at certain points in her storylines but since she returned in 2017 they've given up making her up.

I have to say I really like the child actor playing Sam. He is very natural and good. Even, silently, he made you really feel his emotional turmoil. He would've been huge in silent movies.
Also, I predict that at some point Kelly will return to the street and she and Jack will have a love affair and his new mommy isn't going to like it. There is only two years difference in their ages and the Jack actor is tall enough that it could work.

Surely Abi wouldn't be allowed to adopt Jack? Two of her bio kids had to be put up for adoption.

Yes, Abi is going to adopt Jack. Kelly will be living rough. (Has it occurred to no one to have Vicar Billy offer her housing? Oh yeah -- Billy has better people to help.)
I'm waiting for Kelly and Jack to get together. That'll do Abi's head in!

I think it was plausible, R311. He may well have realised that he simply couldn't convincingly explain away the evidence from the rucksack, and that it was therefore in his best interests to plead guilty in order get a lesser sentence.
