Coronation Street

Best wishes to Bill for a fast recovery. I hope he does return to Corrie as he is the only original cast member left and going by what he said in his most recent book he intends to stay in Corrie for a good while yet.

I caught up on this weeks Corrie yesterday and there was a slight improvement this week compared to what its been like since the 60th. Only very slightly better however. I did like the long scene with Fiz and Tyrone from Mondays episode. Still far too much of the same overall however. Corrie needs a big shake up IMO.

Coronation Street

Loved last nights episode especially the nod to the past - opening scene with the girls, Rita saying 'another fine mess you've got me into' - which was said by Hilda to Stan when they got locked out out of number 13 in 1977, Rita saying about the knackers yard which was Elsie's first line in 1960. The voiceovers and mentions of Elsie, Hilda, Annie Walker, Betty, Deirdre and Mavis. I was slightly disappointed that they didn't make it to Blackpool, Corrie and Blackpool always go well together. But it was still a fabulous episode.

Evelyn one of the best new characters of recent years and im liking Nina as well.

I loved the end credits a shame they didn't use the original theme tune that would have made it even better.

I think an episode like this would be much better for the 60th rather than another episode like the 50th.
