Coronation Street: Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I always expect the episodes to be butchered but each one is getting a 35 minute slot which, to me, suggests they won't need to cut for ads as they would with a standard 30 minute slot. I think generally ITV3 only edits if the material is unsuitable for daytime but I could be entirely wrong.

Am so excited about this - I was 10 in 1986 and was gripped by the Rita/Alan Bradley storyline so it will be good to see it again. I do recall it being a slow burn story, and how shocking it was when Alan posed as Len Fairclough in order to get a mortgage or something. 

And YES to seeing Ivy in action again!

Am I reading too much into it, or could they be launching these repeats with a Rita-heavy era to coincide with her possibly leaving the show?

Coronation Street teases FIVE characters as Phelan's next murder victim

An explosive autumn trailer has suggested he just might have murder in 

Coronation Street has got us all excited for the autumn months by dropping a huge new trailer today, full of spoilers, plots and clips that we just can't stop watching.

And it looks like the Phelan storyline is set to be every bit as gripping as they promised it would be when the list of his enemies just grows and grows and things start to come to a head with the builder arming himself with a gun.

But who will he shoot?

It all begins with his feud with Anna Windass reigniting.

Anna's trying to help Seb Franklin after finding out about his home life, but when Seb tells her to stay out of it, she slaps him.

You can go to hell.

Seb's then seen falling off a ladder and as he lies unconscious in hospital, Phelan hangs over him saying: "She pushed you off that ladder. Anna Windass wants you dead."

Hang on, we didn't see anyone push him, so it looks like Pat's decided it's time to get rid of Anna by stepping up his vendetta against him.

His next enemy seems to be Daniel Barlow - why, we have no idea - but the bullying baldy says to Ken's son: "You continue to poke your nose into my business, I will hurt you."

Given that Daniel pushed his own dad down the stairs, is Phelan messing with the wrong bloke this time?

Next up is Andy Carver. We already know that Andy isn't keen on Pat, given the latter has been holding him hostage in a dingy basement for nine months. But he has a proposal for his captor telling him he'd get his "guaranteed silence forever and I get my life back."

We're back to Anna then who has had enough of her tormentor and runs at him with a hammer.

"You can go to hell," she tells him.

"After you," he replies.

As if that's not enough of a roll call of names, he then turns his attentions to Anna's son, Gary Windass - who's been hooking up with his daughter, Nicola Rubenstein.

Rumours have already suggested Gary's going to get Nicola pregnant and she'll consider an abortion, something Phelan's not happy about.

Is that why Phelan's shouting at her in the next clip? "Get out of my face," he rages and then she's seen in tears.

So it really is falling apart when he can't even keep his family on side.

The next thing we see, Phelan has a gun and is looking menacing. After a close-up of each victim, we see Pat on a rainy, dark night, looking down over something - or someone.

Has he killed one of them? It would certainly seem that he's finally become the murderer we believed him to be - but who has he done away with? Anna, Gary, Andy, Nicola, or Daniel?

Anna is the most likely candidate, given that we know actress Debbie Rush has quit the cobbles after nine years in the role.

Is it set to be a very dark end for Anna? And how will Phelan ever find redemption if he does turn killer?

Long-time "Coronation Street" star Liz Dawn who played Vera Duckworth for over 30 years has passed away, aged 77.



I just saw the cute montage they put together for her, and they dedicated tonight's episode to her too. Via Twitter, someone posted the interview of Samia Ghadie and Alan Halsall who were asked about Liz and Samia was fighting back tears. I felt for her. 


RIP, Liz Dawn. Now Jack & Vera are once again reunited.

I’ve been enjoying Rose Marie a lot on Twitter since she recently joined and it dawned on me that Liz Dawn reminded me a lot of her back in the day. Both highly enjoyable dames.
