She has not been seen in 2008, i still think this is a better year then last year on Corrie, despite that Ken, Blanche and Deirdre are underused, there has been a lot of Gail & Audrey. But as for Emily, Eileen Derbyshire is so underused!......

We just got Sarah and Jason's wedding on today's omnibus on CBC -- fantastic drama! David is such a creepy character, he's great. Loved his suicide attempt and unfolding drama.


aww, I like Doreen. I loved her calling Emily so she would wave at Sarah & Jason on their way to the church, and their throwing flower pedals over them when they got back. So cute!

Carla is something. It's great watching her torment the weaker characters, particularly Maria.

Tonight's episode was fantastic. Janice distracting Audrey with an impression of Edith Piaf that caused her to drive into a tree. laugh.gif That's the kind of sentence you can't write for another other soap.

Just a couple of clips to throw my 2 cents into the thread.

First from a couple of months ago when Theresa took offense at a party nextdoor and dragged Rosie out by her hair:



And my favourite Corrie catfight ever between Gail and Eileen when Sarah found out Todd was gay.

Okay, would someone be kind enough to let me know when this episode aired? I'm about to watch it and I'd like to find some summaries from the period so I can have a clue what's going on.

It's from around 1997. I wish I could remember what was going on but the stories are all a haze. I know it's from after the arrival of Brian Park as EP because Judy is arguing with Gary about the garage and this relates to her mother Joyce being killed. Joyce was one of the first characters Park killed off. It's also the start of Don Brennan's obsession with bringing down Mike Baldwin -- the scene's played pretty low key in the cafe but he ends up driving Alma into the canal and blowing himself up in an attempt to kill Mike.

The new mechanic at the garage has been in a few US series recently like Ghost Whisperer.

I enjoy watching her because she's just so weird. Sally's another one I can't get enough of for the same reason.

The ginger one whose first line is "You dirty bitch"? laugh.gif She's Theresa Morton. The Mortons move in to Charlie's house after Tracy kills him. They really didn't take off but they're currently in the middle of a leaving storyline involving Theresa's return (having walked out on the family years before).

I Dont mind seing Helen Worth as Gail, she is a bitch nowadays, but she been on the show for such a long time, so i dont mind seing her, her mother Audrey is also fun to see.

Old? she is born in 1951, so she is younger than Deidre Hall for example, i really dont think 57 is that old!.....

I Dont know why, but i think Sally is so boring, dont know why?
What do you think about Deirdre and her Sally Spectra voice?....

Aaah, okay. Thanks. I found another episode on the same site and it looks to be from around the same time period, so I'll check that out too. I liked the little lady who was getting her hair done, I think her name is Mavis?

I like Audrey more than Gail, that's for sure. Audrey is totally the type of person that I would know. Gail, on the other hand......I can do without her lol. Every time I watch the clip of David pushing her down the stairs, I cheer.

And I didn't mean old as in old. I just meant as in "old blah blah."

The Mortons have grown on me but they've been really unpopular over here. As soon as the new EP took over, she booted them out the door.

Jodie left sometime before Christmas tho. I think the actress was sick of not having a storyline and they rarely mention the character.

Samantha Seager (Jodie Morton), i think the reason she left was that she wanted to spend more time with her family something she didn`t feel she could on corrie. Maybe she lived far away from the studios?, who knows?......

It is funny that Kenneth Cope is coming back, his character Jed Stone was last seen in 1966, and know the actor who is born in 1931, is coming back, that really is long since he was on the show!.....
