haili,I think with Imram's and Alya's help,Yasmeen will come to her senses about Geoff.
Ironically now that she's in jail,Geoff won't have his hold over Yasmeen anymore and she may begin to see things more clearly.
As for Audrey,remembering what her family went through at the hands of Richard Hillman,I'm still disappointed that she wasn't more sympathetic to Yasmeen or give her the benefit of the doubt as she did with Bethany after she attacked someone.

Lise Yesterday at 17:03
Marie -you often resurrect old story lines, i.e Bethany assaulting a guy who she thought was Nathan.. The Hillman saga.

This to me is the past. It's water under the bridge now.

I'm sure it is as well for Audrey.

Let's move on !

Nancy Yesterday at 17:06
I like being reminded of past storylines resolved or no. I think it's crazy how many life experiences nobody on the Street learns anything from. Possibly fairly true to life in some instances, but surely to goodness the odd person could show some insight into their situation?

Lise Yesterday at 17:21
Oh I know Nancy. Several people like to be reminded of past story lines.

I find it really really tedious.

I'm embracing new stories. :<)

haili Yesterday at 18:42
In real life the past has a lot to do with how we behave in the present. One thing I find on Corrie is how forgiving everyone is of the past, eg Sally being so friendly with Kevin. I would have no desire to see or socialize with an ex. but I guess some do. People tend to go to the Rovers no matter if their exes or there or not. I'd avoid it like the plague.

Gail, Eileen and Liz never give up on finding a husband and any new guy will do. We're still waiting to find out what the new guy in the Rovers is up to but I'll bet he's up to no good.

As for Geoff and Yasmeen, it's gone on for so long I no longer care much what happens to either of them. Even the quads are a welcome break and the babies are cute.

Lise Yesterday at 18:49
It is a soap. I don't want it to imitate real life. The Rovers would be empty if people were trying to avoid exes, etc.

I want to be entertained. I want to see fresh stories.

Wow that is a lot of rain!!
frown

Hey Jude Yesterday at 21:23
Lise, yes, I'm SO with you there. It's just a stupid soap. Bring on new storylines to keep us entertained and not have to worry about past deeds and how they should be punished.

Lise Yesterday at 21:38
Hear hear Hey Jude! We should write to TPTB. :<)

If ever there was a time for some light entertainment, this is it folks!

After the tragic week we've had, 20 minutes of light Coronation Street entertainment would be most welcome.

Humor:

Unexpressed joy, un-hugged hugs, floating away and out of the Manhattan.

What Happens to All the Un-hugged Hugs?

They seem to manifest as almost visible things between us and float away, unsatisfied and disconsolate.

Although I liked the the bits with both Rita and Evelyn[both of whom I'll miss when filming restarts]I was disappointed with Audrey's defense of Geoff due to her possibly being jealous that Geoff chose Yasmeen over her.
It wasn't so long ago that Bethany assaulted a customer with a broken beer bottle in the lap dance bar[where she was working underage because she thought he was Nathan and yet everyone including Audrey thpught Bethany was 'brave' but Yasmeen attacks Geoff in self defense with a champagne bottle and Audrey thinks Yasmeen is guilty of assault?A bit hyporcritical and I hope we don't see Audrey visiting Geoff to see how he is 'coping'.

haili Thursday 22:20
Audrey didn't see what we saw. All she knows is that Yasmeen belted him with the bottle and was charged. She didn't see what led up to it. Most of the characters haven't a clue what's been going on and Yasmeen always covers up for Geoff. It wouldn't surprise me if she begs him for forgiveness. I've been hoping she'd come to her senses but I don't know what it's going to take if this doesn't do the trick.

Must we have more new characters? Must we?

As has oft been said, we have more than enough already. So many great and under-used people, so many story lines that have been dropped/forgotten or dragged along for so long we just want to scream, “Enough already! I don’t care what happens to these people, just please, please, please Make it end!


And I do wonder if some actors have had to take a pay cut. Apart from the ubiquitous David & Gail who among them puts in enough hours to make a living wage? And if they do get a story-line, like as not once it’s over we won’t see them for months.

carolyn Thursday 21:32
I totally agree. Four more new characters. My sister gets so confused she doesn't understand what is going on and I am at times almost as confused as she is. I was never a fan of Moira but what is up with that? She is hardly seen at all, ever, and the odd time her name is mentioned. Something weird going on there. There's just too many characters in addition to the quads.

Chris Thursday 22:30
Maybe they will only be short-term characters.

Chelsey is part of the Scott Emberton story-line. Scott is the Rovers lodger who made Johnny so uncomfortable with his presence that he and Jenny scarpered to France to visit with Eva and Susie.

Chris Thursday 23:11
New character Nicky now has a surname - Wheatley, although no further details have been revealed about her character. Given that actor, Kimberly Hart-Simpson, is a 'keen seamstress' maybe Nicky will get a job in the faktry. wink [www.rhyljournal.co.uk]

Philip Yesterday at 00:52
Louiza Patikas is also a regular on the Archers, so she isn't a real regular character, which is puzzling as to why they brought her back, even though they were building her up in her first stint. Paul Copley who plays Arthur is the same, though I don't know the plans for his character.
Something that is different, compared to the American Soaps is they don't mention if a new character, unless specifically stated is on contract or recurring. I would imagine that the majority of these 4 could be recurring. Although, I always hope for more new cast cards.

SATIRE -from The Borowitz Report

Scientists have discovered a powerful new strain of fact-resistant humans who are threatening life on Earth.

Scientists: Earth Endangered by New Strain of Fact-Resistant Humans.

“It’s possible that they will become more receptive to facts once they are in an environment without food, water, or oxygen,” a researcher said.

Dianne W., have you seen the series Bad Girls? It ran for several years (1999 to 2006).

Storyline: A thoroughly thought-provoking drama series based on the events in a womens prison. Bad Girls captures the highs and lows in the prison, and questions which side of the bar really is the most intense - it's a world where the 'screws' versus the 'cons,' a world where anything and everything can happen, a world where the women really are vulnerable at the hands of the screws.

There were quite a few Corrie actors who appeared in it over the years: Amanda Barrie, Jack Ellis, Stephanie Beecham, Debra Stephenson, Eva Pope, Joanne Froggatt, Denise Black, and maybe more.

Trailer link: [youtu.be]

haili Thursday 10:37
I loved that series, and there was another soapy one called Footballers' Wives and the actor who plays Nick was in it. I wish they would bring some of those old series back since there's not much on tTV these days. Was the actress who played Mike's wife who had the affair with his son Mark on Bad Girls? She was a good actress and one I loved to hate.

I'm not looking forward to another sad baby story with Oliver being ill and I really hope they do
n't kill him off. I guess we're being "educated" again about some disease or other and now it's racism again with the Baileys - and homophobia.

Dianne W. Thursday 23:28
Chris - I have heard of Bad Girls but never watched it. A Corrie actor who appeared in an episode of The Split was the man who played Sally's accuser Duncan.

Nancy Thursday 23:52
There's an Australian show quite similar called _Wentworth_ which runs on APTN quite often. I loved it but it got too violent for me about 5 seasons in, and I gave it up. Super super intense series and great acting.

Joseph was seen for brief moments. Hardly worth showing up on set.

David's epilepsy was mentioned.

Some funny dialogue in the Rovers about Yazmeen:

Rita: "Most women aren't naturally violent."

Evelyn: "Hark at Germaine Greer."

Emma: "Was he in the Jackson Five?" lol

Beachy Carol Wednesday 23:54
While the storyline today was serious with Oliver (such a sweet little boy!) and excellent with the dialogue and interactions between Steve and Leanne, it also had any number of wonderful throw-away lines that had me laughing and were so welcome. Tremendous little bits with Rita and Audrey/David and Craig, anything with Evelyn but particularly in the pub with the ladies and her beau, sweet innocent Emma, and Steve with the cake who always brings it. I didn’t even mind Chesney and Gemma although I wish she would be more grateful or would, at the least, recognize that people are doing their best to help. And I have a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach over what the Bailey family has coming at them :((

Just Sayin' Thursday 00:03
Beachy, if Gemma has just started taking medication for depression/anxiety it will take at least 2 weeks to start to notice a change in her disposition. Hopefully the meds will be the right ones, a lot of people need to switch them up or try different dosages before the desired effect can be reached.

Beachy Carol Thursday 00:22
I did forget she sought help, Just Sayin’. It is lovely you remembered that.

blitzen,I could understand Alya changing the locks in fact I cheered when she did!
She had to do something drastic to protect her gran's home from Geoff who I fear will get away with his abuse and perhaps this could lead to her and Ryan finding the CCTV cameras?
Fortunately for Sally that she and Tim aren't legally married as he can't claim her house as his.
As for Yasmeen,maybe she has a will and leaves the house to Alya.

Because I'm like that, I looked into what Geoff's rights regarding the house are. As far as we know he never got his name put on the deeds, but Alya doesn't have the right to lock him out:

Home rights (also known as matrimonial home rights)
Whilst the marriage or civil partnership is still in existence, the non-owning spouse or civil partner occupies the matrimonial home as if s/he were the owner, without having the actual status of an owner.

The non-owning spouse or civil partner has the right to:

occupy the matrimonial home and not to be excluded, except by court order[2]
(if not occupying the home), obtain a court order to regain entry and to live there[3]
register rights of occupation as a charge on the property[4]
occupy the home as if s/he were the owner
pay the mortgage or other outgoings that are to be treated as if paid by the owner.[5] This gives a right to pay the mortgage, but does not mean that the non-owning spouse or civil partner can be held legally liable for the owner's arrears, unless a court order has been made transferring liability[6]
apply to be joined in any mortgage possession proceedings taken against the spouse[7]
be notified by the lender of any possession action, provided that matrimonial home rights have been registered[8]
apply for an order to provide that the matrimonial home rights are not brought to an end by death or termination of the marriage.[9]

Alice Thursday 12:15
I'm surprised the police are letting anyone in because it's the crime scene of an attempted murder. Alya and Ryan could plant evidence against Geoff. If Geoff got back in he could destroy his surveillance videos and his chats with escorts.
Or maybe I've watched too many CSI's. smile

Corrie actor spotting:

I have been reqtching the UK series Spooks (MI-5) online, and saw a familiar face. In series 1, first episode, the abused wife was the actor who played Danny Baldwin's wife Frankie.

Off Topic: For all the Nicola Walker fans, I am enjoying a new series called The Split, viewing online at Sundance. She plays a very talented divorce lawyer. Her mother is Deborah FIndlay, the actor who looks remarkably like a young Emily Bishop.

Chris,Although I had the same thought with the Martin Platt comparison,For Leanne's sake,I liked that Aggie was working in the 'ER'[I believe she was assigned there when she returned to nursing]as Aggie was a big help to Leanne and Steve acting as go-between with the doctor.
I hope we see more of 'Tall Matt',he could be a fun character.
*****spoiler-non UK [sort of]I am not looking forward to Carla's storyline and the possibility of yet another 'long lost angry relative storyline'.****end spoiler
There are too many underused characters on the Street now so why bring in more?
Izzy is a prime example of an underused character who should be linked to Gary's storyline.
Since she is the mother of Gary's son and is aware of his shady past,I would like to see Izzy be part of Adam's investigation of Gary especially since she too could have been hurt or killed when Gary sabotaged the factory roof.

Beachy Carol Wednesday 22:57
I agree, Marie, about underused characters and the introduction of new characters. You are so right that any story involving Gary should involve Izzy, whether that is in a very oblique way or straight on as it does or could affect Jake. Maybe we are asking too much but it sure shows we are all invested in the show :) I would like to see more of some of the longer established characters. I am so happy to see Craig and Sean on our screens a bit more.

I do understand the need to bring in younger characters; hopefully the show will continue another 60 years and bring the current younger viewers along with it; these newbies will then be the Ritas, Kens and Audreys of our days :)

SPOILER PICS





On ITV's Good Morning Britain, Lorraine is joined by ITV's Managing Director of Continuing Drama, John Whiston, who tells us about Corrie's return to filming early next week. [youtu.be]

Just Sayin' Wednesday 23:58
Thanks Chris , that was a good interview. Loved the Corriewood sign!

It didn't occur to me that the children wouldn't be back on for awhile. No Oliver, no quads, makes sense why though.

One thing that left me a bit confused was the envelope analogy. Cashiers hand me receipts all the time. Changing out an envelope doesn't make sense. I could understand if it was because of the 2 meter distance rule, leaning over to except an envelope would be awkward.

Just Sayin' Thursday 00:08
embarrassment accept an envelope.

Chris Thursday 02:58
Maybe out of abundance of caution in case the virus might be able to contaminate the envelope and transfer from one cast member to another?

We finally got a look at "Tall Matt". He normally works in the chippy, but he does the occasional cover in the kebab shop. "Tall Matt" has been mentioned from time-to-time, but we have never seen the character until now.

Aggie has developed that Martin Platt skill of working on whichever hospital ward or department the neighbours get taken into. wink

Beachy Carol,I agree about Sarah and wondered who is she to lecture David on parenting when Bethany got away with assaulting an innocent man with a beer bottle in a club where she was working underage and recently 'stalked'Daniel shortly after Sinead died of Cancer,never giving him time or space to grieve and has a three-year old son whom is invisible.
I don't think Sarah's and Adam's marriage will last as she married him on the rebound from Gary hence her still living in David's house[as a safety net] rather than searching for a flat with her husband.

haili\Jim,I agree with both of your comments and Roy's outburst was the highlight of the episode for me.
I wondered if he was inspired by Nina when she went after the bullies?

Coronation Street spoilers: Adam Barlow 'betrays' Sarah Platt in devastating revenge twist

CORONATION STREET heartthrob Adam Barlow looks set to betray his recently wedded wife Sarah Platt in order to get revenge on his arch-nemesis, Gary Windass. However, just how far will the lawyer go to expose the super villain?

More about this in the EXPRESS.

Gayle Tuesday 19:23
I just don't get why Sarah and Adam are living in David's house? Adam is a lawyer for heaven's sake, surely they can afford to get a place of their own? And apparently Adam took Max, Lilly and a toddler all to the same movie? Very strange.

I like Sarah well enough but she has come back from honeymoon with a huge chip on her shoulder. I don’t see her as being nice to anyone, not even the kids. I’m not even sure she is concerned about David’s nocturnal habits as much as she is concerned how they may affect her. I do hope she and Adam move into their own home soon.

Just Sayin' Tuesday 21:03
Spoiler , you will see a very compassionate side of Sarah soon. If I were her I would have written David off after the pills in the doll incident that nearly killed Bethany.

I find it odd that the Brits think it's posh to call the mid-day meal 'lunch'. That's not just on Corrie. I've heard it on other shows as well.

blitzen Tuesday 15:01
The British are obsessed with social class in a way we just don't understand over here. Using the "wrong" word can mark you out as posh, working class, or irredeemably middle-class.

Working class - dinner (Sally was a school "dinner lady" at one time)
posh - lunch

working class - tea
posh - dinner (or a later meal, supper)

working class - serviette
posh - napkin

Ect & so on. There are whole lists out there.

Alice Tuesday 18:28
Blitzen. Thank you for the explanation. It still seems odd. In our family we only called the mid-day meal dinner when we were having Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner early in the afternoon.

Joan Tuesday 20:44
That's funny. I always thought that serviette sounded more formal than napkin.

I thought dinner was the largest meal of the day.
You could have breakfast, dinner, supper
or breakfast, lunch, dinner

I had no idea it was a class-thing.

Just Sayin' Tuesday 21:00
We used serviettes at lunch and supper so I guess we were upper working class?

Pearl Tuesday 22:38
Joan I thought the same re serviette vis napkin. To me a serviette is a small napkin used with tea cups and dainties. A napkin would be larger and useful enough to handle a small spill.

Louise Tuesday 22:50
In my world meals have always been breakfast, lunch and supper. Dinner was too posh for the likes of us! When I grew up we never even had napkins or serviettes but now we have napkins.

Monique Wednesday 02:29
When I was growing up in Montreal the evening meal was called supper then it became fashionable to call it dinner. Supper sounded old fashioned and working class. Here in Nova Scotia it's called supper, even on signs of posh restaurants!

Great episode, but Gail, THAT DRESS!! She looked like Laura Ingalls on Little House on the Prairie!🤣

Carolyn Tuesday 02:55
Yes Audrey made it clear that she didn't like it either! It was horrid and a drab color.

I don't like what they've done to Gail. It would be nice to see her treat herself to a makeover. I loved it when she left them all to go on her holiday. She is a martyr to that family. They all use her but don't give her any respect.

No wonder Audrey asked Gail if she was going to change!

Lise Tuesday 13:32
That dress was reminiscent of Laura Ashley's dresses 35 odd years ago. It looked dowdy then and it looks dowdy now.

Haili -i really thought that when Gail came back from her big trip she would have rediscover her spunk.

If the writers are playing her for laughs, they're the only ones who think it's amusing.

Maybe the dress was one of Toyah's discards. They've been giving David and Gail the odd good scene where he shows a little affection by calling her maam instead of Gail but usually she's stuck with cleaning or baby sitting. I don't find it funny either except for her scenes with Audrey; those two work really well together. I wish they would give her her brain back.

I must confess I liked the dress!

Best episode since the bus trip! Audrey is so self absorbed, but she and Gail are so funny together and a nice break from all the dark stuff we've been seeing.

Steve and Leanne were more like their old selves too and I wish it could last, though I fear we're in for more misery. Enjoy this while it lasts!

Loved seeing Roy lose his temper and put his foot down! Interesting to see the neighbours react to Yasmeen's news but I hope we don't get many jail scenes.

Cathy and Bernie are bound to end up friends eventually and it's nice to see so many different characters after so many weeks and months of the miserable couple.

Lots of funny lines in this well written episode.

Dim Tim described the ink Oliver used to give Steve a mustache as 'inedible'. lol

Superhero's don't always wear capes - way to go Roy. smile

I like scenes with Audrey getting a little tipsy. lol

Gail meets her father for the first time - [twitter.com]

With Gail's birthday being quite the intimate affair this time, let's go back to 2007 and a far more lavish do, courtesy of Audrey. [twitter.com]

Thanks, Chris. That was quite some 49th Birthday celebration! Too funny. David about the banner: "Should we save it for next year?" lol

I like Steve and Leanne more when they are civil to each other...i think Bernie and Cathy could eventually make good friends...i hope Dim Tim brightens up and catches Geof and is the one who frees Yasmeen..seems like Eileen might know something...love Roy yelling-so unlike Roy and totally unexpected-love it he has a voice...i havent had a birthday party in 51 years!!!!
