Everyone will warm to them eventually, they have seen the same ones for thousands of episodes over the last 8 years, so any change is bound to shake them up a bit :p

One thing that's got me thinking though is will they still change them when there are abroad episodes?

I do hope that the trails for the Corrie specials have been specially shot and aren't extracts from the show - as they are 25p film-effect - which I don't think will suit Corrie.

Isn't it just the week of specials that are in HD - with the full switch taking place later this year? I didn't think this heralded the permanent switch-over?

I think it is permanantly High def now, the preview videos show Corrie in its usual look, no filmic effects or anything, Corrie always puts filmic effects of trailers

I wonder whether the titles will play in full tonight at 9pm or whether it'll be the usual break sting for the second episode of the night. Considering all the fuss made about them, and that you'd expect the 9pm episodes to have viewers who missed them at 7pm, you'd think they would.

Good point, they might have changed the "Continues at..." thing

yeah i'm 99% sure it is from now on - i think people are just getting confusing becuase in the promo's it being shown as a "special week of episodes in HD" rather than the laucnh of HD Corrie!

I think proberly for tonight at least ,they will - especailly with the post BGT audience there'd want to show them and make people think "oh corries changed a bit" Laughing

Looking forward to tonight! Laughing
