Janice,I also feel sorry for Gemma who's in way over her head running the Rovers.
I'm disappointed that Leanne didn't take Gemma under her wing so speak as Rita asked her to and go to the cash and carry with her to help guide Gemma on how to purchase liquor instead of Gemma going on her own.
As for Henry,I think he bought the whole premises,the bar and the flat in the back.

Maggie Tuesday 18:48
I don't know. If Gemma is going to learn quickly, she has to learn to do these things on her own and use her own head a bit. Leanne did specifically tell her to make sure to keep the receipts. If she did, they could easily return anything purchased in error.

Plus, if Gemma was not sure to purchase 1 bottle or 12 bottles, she should have asked. In this day and age when everyone has a cel phone handy, I don't see why she wouldn't have checked with Leanne or Toyah.

Anyway, if someone is purchasing your pub, it's not up to you to be sure they know what they are doing, after all!

Lise Tuesday 21:27
Gemma may be street smart and gobby but she's not very bright. :(

Lise Tuesday 21:29
I think this venture will soon become a disaster.

Besides I still do not trust Henry.

Hey Jude Tuesday 21:39
I feel the same way Lise. It'll all end in tears

Alice Tuesday 22:29
The thought of Gemma doing the accounts for the Rovers makes me cringe.

I feel sorry for Gemma taking over the running of The Rovers as she really does not have a clue, and Toyah and Leanne sending her to the Cash and Carry to restock Dubonnet without telling her the quantity to buy is downright stupid on their part, and also giving her enough cash to spend that should have been placed aside for staff wages. Gemma must have bought an awful lot. Twelve bottles of Dubonnet is not beer money.

Did Henry buy the pub business only, or did it included the premises. Is the Rover a Tied House or Free House?

Maggie Tuesday 18:51
I agree that they should not have given her so much money if she was just expected to purchase one bottle. That part does not make any sense - good point!

I originally thought she was being sent to make purchases to restock all the booze that she and Henry drank, not just the one bottle.

Gayle Wednesday 00:30
I've never run a business but would they really pay everything in cash? Would they not have account with the wholesalers? And who is in this day and age pay their staff in cash? Seems a little off to me. But perhaps how pubs run?

Monday's missing scenes from Bradley's YouTube channel smile [youtu.be]

Take the latest Corrie quiz in Manchester Evening News. I scored 29/30. smile [www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk]

Beaner Tuesday 03:00
Didn’t do as well as Chris. Got 22/30!

Chris Tuesday 04:12
I missed out on the name of the song that Jack and Vera danced to. frown Otherwise, it was a very enjoyable quiz. smile

Lise Tuesday 12:43
22/30 !

Chris -have you read "The P resident is Missing" by B ill C linton and James Patterson?

I started it last night.

Chris Tuesday 18:05
Lise, I have the book on my tablet, but haven't started it yet. Will soon. Thanks for the reminder. smile

Lise Tuesday 18:32
You're welcome Chris. It's pretty good so far.

My one complaint is that the book is so damn heavy!

I know I know, I should have a tablet. :<)
But I love the feel of a book.

Taffy Tuesday 21:56
Chris and Lise
I got 29/30. I knew the correct answer about the Spice Girls, but I hit the wrong line. I didn't like that remark at the end about Ken Barlow. I know I'm old, but not that old!!
I read Pres is Missing when it first came out, in June ,I think. I wasn't surprised about the mole in WH. I had an E-reader, but didn't like it. Being an O A P i can't afford to buy books or E-books. I use my local library. I'm there 2 or 3 times a week. I've tried the Ontario Library system to reserve E-books, but it takes forever to get new books. You can only have them for 2 weeks and then they disappear!!

Sean being beaten and ending up at the hospital was very predictable...yep, Tim's money is going to lead to trouble-was Tim set up somehow!!!!

Alice Wednesday 12:12
Yes, Jim, exactly. I think most people here would question a thousand bucks suddenly appearing in a bank account. Stupid of Tim not to think of that.

I'm worried about Tim's 'found money.' After Sally accidentally gave away council money to a scam artist, they should be very careful about having money in their account that cannot be properly traced or documented. This is not a spoiler, just a thought. I wonder!

Taffy Monday 22:29
Maggie
Without giving anything away, you are on the right track.

Lise Monday 22:35
I did not quite hear the story of the 'found money'.

Was it a bank mistake? Yes, 'r lovely Tim should have given the money back immediately That will end in tears.

Maggie Tuesday 18:44
Thanks, Taffy, but I am sorry to hear that.

Lise - my recollection is that Tim mentioned that an extra 1,000 pounds appeared in his account and he wasn't going to say anything to the bank about it. Dumb, in any situation, if you ask me, but especially when you are even somewhat tied to a case of fraud! Dumb.

Lise Tuesday 20:02
Thank you Maggie.

Geez, that was so stupid. He obviously didn't stop to think of the implications.

Lise Tuesday 20:02

Why is Kevin so upset about Jack going to Liverpool for rehab? It only 1 hour away and they a good rail system in the U.K. I think Soapie had a nerve expecting Tim to give his Found! money to Kevin for Jack. I know where this story line is going and it will turn around and bite Tim and Sally in the but.

Beachy Carol Monday, 13 August 2018 19:15
Is Jack having to stay in a rehab facility in Liverpool? That’s the only thing I can think of, that Kevin would want to be with him as much as possible and he thinks it may be difficult to travel and hour each way per day. (He never lived in Toronto, lol). But truly I can see him wanting/needing a bedsit so he himself can rest, sleep, eat, wash, etc.
Tim is simply the kindest and most understanding man. Love him. I think Sophie is still feeling guilt hence her very quick almost order to Tim to hand over the money to Kevin.
All of this would be more realistic if they mentioned Rosie, as in to say Sally has been in touch with Rosie over what happened to her little brother and we hear that Rosie is upset. I hope Rosie comes back to the Street after maternity leave.

blitzen Monday, 13 August 2018 19:51
There is a Ronald McDonald house in Liverpool, and since Kevin has his own vehicle he wouldn't be dependent on trains. Or he could take a couple of weeks off work--surely Tyrone and Abi could handle things for that long. They could always draft Gina in as well. wink

I'm wondering if the big deal I thought they were making about David touching the lines and tubes in the hospital are leading to Josh's death by someone sabotauging ( sp?) them ( not David) and that evidence pointing to him rather than someone that did it and didn't leave prints.

Janice from British Columbia Monday, 13 August 2018 14:51
Logical thinking, Shirley. They should have you on their themes team.

Pearl Tuesday 00:34
I thought the scene of David in Josh's hospital room was too contrived. What hospital would let a visitor alone with a patient on life support who had been beaten by someone unknown. David did say he had spoken to a nurse so he didn't sneak in still it is not realistic.

Just my observation on Another over age50 female character with "big hair, e.g. Claudia joining Audrey,and Gail with either multiple wigs in 1980s style. In the 1990s UK forum always commented on "big red" referring to Rita's massive hair. In my exception Liz's hair does look very "today". Also on the whole the younger females hair look much more natural.

haili Sunday, 12 August 2018 23:41
It's only natural that the younger characters would be more fashionable than the older ones - just like real life.

Hey Jude Sunday, 12 August 2018 23:58
Claudia is way over 50 and I hate the look of her hair or wig or whatever that is. Audrey could do with a more up to date hair style. Her hair still makes me ithink of *big hair days*! Lol Liz wears her hair nicely, much better than the frizzy perm she wore years ago

Jim\haili,I think that maybe Audrey and Claudia are working together to fool Maria so Audrey can teach Maria a lesson and put her back in line so do speak in the salon only the twist is that unbeknowst to Audrey,Claudia is working with Lewis[whom Audrey let escape] and she's after money from Maria?
Judging from this week's episodes with David taking a day off [to stalk Josh] leaving Audrey high and dry and Bethany rarely at work,perhaps Audrey should have made Maria partner instead of leaving it to her family as they seem to have a sense of entitlement as dar as the salon is concerned.

Hey Jude Sunday, 12 August 2018 20:35
That sounds quite plausible about Audrey and Claudia Marie! Are you reading Spoilers?!LOL

Lise Sunday, 12 August 2018 20:48
That sounds much too farfetched, to me -even for Corrie!

Jim Sunday, 12 August 2018 21:29
Audrey should have made Maria a partner but i guess this other way is to give them more story!!!

haili Sunday, 12 August 2018 23:40
I think it's Maria who has the sense of entitlement. After all, as Audrey said, it's a family business. Audrey should just hire another hairdresser and let Maria start her own salon if she wants to be boss. Maybe Claudia is back with Lewis. The writers seem to like bringing him back. Hairdresser rivalry has been a nice change from some of the gloomy story lines; at least I kind of enjoy it but I hope it's not another scam for Audrey or Gail.

Tracy Monday, 13 August 2018 00:51
I agree Haili, Maria has a bit of a cheek to expect any stake in the business. She is an employee, a valued one perhaps, but just an employee. Realistically, Maria would be renting the chair from the salon anyways and setting up her own customer base and bookings. It does make a nice change of storyline and anything that gives us more Audrey is fine by me!

Is Claudia also a scam artist...will she trick Maria and take off with Carla's money for the salon...hospitals. murders and scams seems what Corrie only knows!!!

haili Sunday, 12 August 2018 17:22
I don't think Claudia is a scammer but she and Audrey always try to one up the other. They are friendly rivals as I remember.

Jim Sunday, 12 August 2018 17:51
haili...i hope so...friendly rivals trying to up the other is a lot more fun and if they add some comic touches it could be a great relief from the usual gloom and doom!!!

Tracy Monday, 13 August 2018 00:48
I have thought that right from the start of her return. She is here for a reason, and its not likely a good one. I'm not sure exactly what it is - but I smell a rat! lol

Carla said she had nothing. Where did she get the money to invest in Maria's salon?

Beachy Carol Saturday, 11 August 2018 02:41
Carla always seems to have an unending supply of money. No money from the factory since she gave her share to Aidan. Aren’t Robert and Michelle living in her flat? So that money is tied up. The house she lived in in Devon (?) perhaps was sold, if it wasn’t a rental. I really don’t know where she gets these pots of money from.... good investments? :)

Alice Saturday, 11 August 2018 02:52
Beachy Carol. I'm glad someone else finds this strange. There have been several cases of characters saying they're skint then buying expensive things or planning trips, etc. I guess money grows on the trees of the Red Rec. If so I'm going to Manchester.

Gail Saturday, 11 August 2018 18:53
I think *nothing* must be a relative term for Carla. But ya, for someone who came from a poor family, she's done quite well for herself! As far as the *being skint* some people just live on credit and pay the minimum monthly, preferring to enjoy life and not worry about their debt. That's how I justify their spending.

I did too Shirley. I still think it's rutting. :)

Hey Jude Friday, 10 August 2018 18:40
My closed captioning said rudies

Lise Friday, 10 August 2018 19:09
That could be it. Although Blitzen has a good explanation.

Slang meaning of RUDIE
RUDIE means: Rudie is slang for sex.Rudie is Jamaican slang for a rude boy.

This blog is educational. LOL

OOOOOOOPPPPPPSSSSSS - major spoiler in that article -don't go unless you're a spoiler hound like me.

Monique Friday, 10 August 2018 21:19
Lise, did you think it was rutting because of the French "période de rut" for animals?

Lise Friday, 10 August 2018 22:03
I did ! As the French word rut is the same in English, it mede sense to me. Well spotted Monique. :).

Lise Friday, 10 August 2018 22:04
And the fact that it means breeding season...

Tracy Friday, 10 August 2018 22:37
I'm of the impression Rudies is just a slang term for sex, such as Shagging. Probably a lot more popular a word with today's youth.

Hey Jude Saturday, 11 August 2018 01:10
I'd never heard the term before! lol I didn't mind that opening scene with Daniel and Sinead - why were so many in the UK offended?!LOL Its no big deal IMHO

Having just read about them dating in real life, I decided it was time to make the following extemely important announcement (grin): I think that Joe Duttine is one of the best actors on the Street; and, I really like what the character of Abi has been bringing to the show recently -- she is a solid actress and I love her fierceness (reminds me of Becky in many more ways than one and if she and Steve never end up together I will be disappointed).

Tim has been a fantastic replacement for Lloyd, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't be blissful to see Lloyd come back and interact with Tim, in case anyone's listening.

blitzen Friday, 10 August 2018 17:37
I agree! Tim is probably the best character that has been brought onto the show in the last 10 years, and Joe Duttine plays him brilliantly. He and Sally Dynevor have wonderful chemistry working together, and I hope the writers keep them together long term.

I like Abi too, she's very believable as someone trying to rebuild her life and make good choices, but with a core of low esteem that makes her self-destruct. She's what I had hoped Gemma would turn into before they decided to double down on her boorish personality. And yes, she does remind me of (pre-baby-obsessed) Becky, whom I miss.

Monique Friday, 10 August 2018 18:33
When Abi first came on the show, she reminded me of Tyrone's mum Jackie. So when they almost went on a date I felt that Tyrone was looking for someone like his mum.

Gail Saturday, 11 August 2018 18:57
She's an excellent actress but so far I don't like Abi. She makes me want to slap her LOL But I start out that way with characters sometimes and end up liking them so I expect as we go along, they're going to make her more likeable.

Pearl,The difference between Tyrone and Toyah is that Tyrone not only had to deal with the shock of his best friend having an affair with his wife Molly but also the shock that Kevin fathered her son,the son that Tyrone named after Jack Duckworth who was the father he never had so at the time he wanted to keep his distance whereas Toyah manipulated a vulnerable Eva to give her her child despite the possibilty that Eva could [and did]change her mind and want her daughter back and hurting not only Peter but Ken as well whose daughter's Susan's memory was exploited by Toyah's deception.
In time Kevin also come to realise how much he hurt Tyrone which is more than I can say for Toyah who still thinks she's the only 'victim'.

Lise Thursday, 9 August 2018 21:36
I'm sorry Marie but i strongly disagree that Toyah manipulated Eva.

Eva did not think she'd be able to cope being a single parent. It was a mutual agreement between sisters. Eva felt it was preferable to having an abortion or have the baby adopted by a stranger.

Alec Thursday, 9 August 2018 22:13
I agree Lise. Toyah was consistent throughout the storyline (maybe not near the end) that Eva could change her mind and sometimes even encouraged her to do so.

Hey Jude Thursday, 9 August 2018 23:23
Toyah DID NOT manipulate Eva! lol

Lise Thursday, 9 August 2018 23:46
It's funny how we all understand things differently. confused

Bonnie Thursday, 9 August 2018 23:51
It would be a dull old world if we all saw everything the same way, lol!

Nell Friday, 10 August 2018 04:38
In my opinion Toyah is one of the most empathetic and compassionate characters on the show. I wish there were more characters living on the street with those traits.

Monique Friday, 10 August 2018 14:34
I have a different opinion. Toyah did not manipulate Eva at first. Eva very willingly agreed that Toyah should bring up her baby as she was planning to have a termination. However, after the baby was born and it was clear that Eva developed maternal feelings and was heart broken at the thought of giving her up, Toyah still wanted to keep their original plan. Sure she asked Eva if she was sure about the plan, but she just asked quickly without really insisting and Eva was vulnerable and felt guilty about changing her mind. Toyah should have firmly told Eva it was ok to change her mind when she saw how wrenching the situation was for Eva and not just go along with her Eva's first response. Especially after Aiden died, Eva wanted to hold on to Susie even more and when she expressed to Toyah that she wanted to come clean about the whole situation, Toyah tried to manipulate her to keep their original plan. She seemed oblivious to what Eva was going through. She even worried when it looked like Aiden and Eva might get back together. Fortunately her conscience did kick in eventually but for a while she was quite selfish and manipulative. Just my opinion.

Tracy Friday, 10 August 2018 22:36
I agree with your impression of the scenario Monique. I recall it the same way. Toyah was so desperate to keep Suzie, she ignored Eva's comments that Aiden's death was a 'game-changer'.
But she has been quite supportive ever since, and has managed to keep her feelings relatively calm/to herself. I felt her need for the baby hat to be very realistic and I have empathy for her in that particular moment.
Poor Peter had Suzie literally ripped away from him, so I feel sorry for him the most. He had everything he thought he ever wanted - all of it a lie, from the person he loved and trusted the most too :(

Lise Saturday, 11 August 2018 17:28
My feeling is that Peter's pain is not very deep.

He'll move on pretty quickly. It's already obvious the way he acts around Carla. He's always been rather shallow

At first I thought that Bethany befriending Kayla and going to the hospital with her was far fetched, but I liked the way the storyline wrapped up. It provided closure for all involved without becoming too long or involved. Neil got to face an additional consequence of his actions and hearing Kayla confront Neal gave Bethany additional closure. While Bethany was kind to Kayla and she and Craig allowed her to get away with what she did, it was made clear that her relationship with them ended there. It was very well written.

Tracy,I was also relieved that Eva showed compassion for Johnny and dropped had the charges dropped against him[perhaps out of respect for Aidan?] and for his part Johnny does seem genuinely remorseful for what he did.I'm also liking Jenny more and more and I hope Johnny realises what a good wife she is.
I also undertstand Eva leaving and wanting a 'fresh start' and perhaps gets some distance from Toyah who creeped me out keeping Susie's little bonnet because it still had Susie's smell.
It's obvious Toyah has not gotten over her obsession with Susie.


haili,Whatever Peter has done in the past,I don't think should have any bearing on how he hurt feels now about Eva and Toyah and their deception with Susie.
No one deserves to be lied to about their child being stillborn and 'replaced'with someone else's only to lose that child too because the mother changed her mind and wanted it back which is what Eva and Toyah with Toyah exploiting the memory of Peter's sister and Adam's mother by naming Eva's baby after her.
Plus Eva also changed her mind about helping Adam get revenge on the Connors by robbing the factory because all was forgiven with Aidan[so she thought] so it's understandable that Peter would warn his nephew to keep his distance from Eva.

Lise Wednesday, 8 August 2018 21:38
I didn't think it was creepy of Toyah wanting to have a keepsake of Baby Susie.

Toyah genuinely loves that little girl.

Tracy Wednesday, 8 August 2018 21:49
I'm not sure I would do the same as Eva - I'm just saying I enjoyed that outcome of the storyline. I liked how she tried to stop him from going to jail, yet doesn't want to have anything to do with him. She has her limits. I hope this is all wrapped up now and we can all move on in soapland.

I actually didn't think it was that bad of Toyah at all, and I think Eva has overreacted about it. She wanted to ensure Toyah loved Suzie like her own (at first) and that can't just be switched off. Plus Toyah genuinely loves her step-sister Eva and ofcourse would love the baby even if all this mess didn't happen (as an Auntie). So I think it is all a normal process and Toyah should be given a wee bit of slack and time to get over the loss of what might have been. (yes, it was horrible and I hate what they all did, but she can't just pretend she doesn't love Suzie, and would Eva really want her to? Should Leanne not love her either, cos she is an Auntie too...)

As I've said, I am loving the outcome of this horrible storyline. All the diff sides and emotions, its actually impressed me greatly.

Pearl Wednesday, 8 August 2018 23:54
Lise & Tracy I agree it is normal for Toyah to love Susie without being her mother. Keeping her first bonnet as a momento is understandable. Compared to how Tyrone reacted after learning Jack was not his son when he had loves and cared for him for months was very strange to me. Love for a child can not be switched off because they are no longer yours. I am relieved that in the current story with Jack, Tyrone is showing concern for him.

Hey Jude Thursday, 9 August 2018 01:01
I also didn't find Toyah sniffing the bonnet creepy. Now stuffing it in her purse is something else. She should have waited and asked Eva if she could keep it. Not something I would do, but not creepy or strange either. You have to be a parent to understand IMHO.

Beachy Carol Thursday, 9 August 2018 14:03
Hey Jude, wasn’t the bonnet going to be washed and then sent to the charity shop? I adore Eva and I understand her fears and while I am really sad she moved away I think it is for the best for everyone’s emotional health. Toyah sniffing then taking the bonnet was not imho a weird act; she did after all buy it for Susie who she loved and reared for the first month. I think in time Eva would not have feared Toyah’s love for Susie and would have embraced it as a shared emotion and have been glad for such a loving supportive auntie. Toyah is not a monster.

Hey Jude Thursday, 9 August 2018 16:32
Yes, one of them mentioned the bonnet would get washed, but I still think if Toyah wants it that badly, she could have at least asked Eva. Eva didn't look too pleased either when she saw Toyah stuff the bonnet in her purse.

Yikes the Abbotsford airshow pilots must be practising! A couple of jet fighters just flew over my house!

I'm not to good with computers either. I have to get my husband to send emails for me!! So please forgive me if I don't explain something properly. Go to Corrie.net.Then click on next week in UK (they also have info for Canada too) Click on UK .It's underlined. Then up pops the info for next weeks episodes, Monday Wednesday and Friday. Then just read what it says. Also shows a few pictures. I hope this helps.

Arghhh.. NO farmers' market today.

The area where they hold the market is very close by. We were lucky not be flooded.

"Dear Friends of Bloor Borden Market,

The market is CANCELLED today due to flooding. In our 11 years of operation, this is the first time we've had to cancel. The rain is not projected to ease up and the area in and around the market is flooded.

Thanks Climate Change.

We will be back next week.

Cheers."

Forgiveness is a wonderful thing but it's exaggerated at the moment on Corrie.

I don't like the way Craig and Bethany have let Kayla get away with what she did. Bethany trying to help her and form an alliance with her is going overboard. Kayla physically held her hostage and beat her and was extremely emotionally abusive to Craig. Sure she was fooled by her father but she should face consequences for her abusive behavior otherwise she won't learn from it.

That being said, I liked the scene at the hospital with Kayla and Neal, although Bethany being there was too much. I liked seeing a follow up of the villain confronted by the person he fooled and seeing Kayla deal with this new information about her dad, who she adored and was willing to do anything for.

I also don't think Eva should have gone out of her way to help Johnny. The Connors were horrible to her and she should remember that,if they had their way, she would have lost Susie. As someone pointed out, she could even get in trouble for making a false abduction claim. I doubt Johnny would be sent to prison anyway. I don't think Jenny was sent to prison when she abducted Jack, wasn't she sent to rehab or a psychiatric facility? Eva helping Johnny like this when his goal was to separate her from her daughter forever makes no sense to me. It's not just the abduction, he had started a calculating process to get custody.

I guess I'm not in a very forgiving mood today!

Hey Jude Wednesday, 8 August 2018 17:06
Also, I don't think Bethany had even a tiny scratch or bruising on her face because of Kayla punching her. I'll have to take a second look, but she looked perfectly normal to me. Taking it too seriously, I've got to stop it!LOL lol

Gayle Wednesday, 8 August 2018 17:55
Monique, agree with you 100%! Johnny actually thought he got get full custody of Susie, and when he realized he couldn't he took her away from her Mum! I absolutely hated the nasty way he kept saying "she gave her baby away", she gave her baby to someone who she knew would love her and give her a good home, when at the time she didn't think she could!

Lise Wednesday, 8 August 2018 17:56
The climate has changed since then.

Several subways are out of commission.
Union Station is flooded.

What a fun summer this is turning out to be. :(

OFF TOPIC:
The flooding in Toronto is unreal. Thank goodness the police arrived just in time and the men made it out of that elevator alive, it must have been absolute torture. Confined space with water rising. Terrifying and traumatizing.

Lise Wednesday, 8 August 2018 15:39
It's an amazing story about these 2 men. Frightening too.
[www.theglobeandmail.com]

I was worried about our basement being flooded but we dodge the bullet this time.

Lise Wednesday, 8 August 2018 16:10
The 2 men in the elevator:

“As the water was rising very, very quickly, they only had about a foot of airspace left inside the elevator and it was completely closed, so officers pried the elevator open and rescued the two men,” spokesperson Katrina Arrogante told Global News.

She said the officers had to find a crowbar and swim through the basement to access the elevator.

Hey Jude Wednesday, 8 August 2018 17:03
OMG that is absolutely nuts. I would have totally lost it in that elevator, as am not crazy about them anyway. I'm glad they were rescued and are okay. Stuff like that NEVER happened when I lived there.

Hey Jude Wednesday, 8 August 2018 18:03
Yes I see above your posts were directed at me Lise! No problem! What I remember about living in Toronto 30 -35, even 40 years ago, was whether or not the TTC or Canada Post would go on strike! That was our biggest worry back then! Yes, its def climate change. We are killing ourselves globally.

Here's my two cents worth on last night's eppie: Lilly has become rather bratty. It never ceases to amaze me how Corrie parents never, ever seem to be able to arrange proper child care for their children. School holidays seem to come as a surprise to them! Why aren't David and Bethany working at the salon any longer? I realize Bethany was going through some nasty stuff at the hands of Kayla and David is supposed to be doing community service work (to my knowledge community service work is done after working hours so the offenders can keep their jobs). 78 year old Audrey appears to be running the salon with Emma who only seems to be able to make coffee, I thought she was an apprentice.
I don't particularly care for Abi, glad she in recovery, but for someone who supposedly wants her children back she seems to do a lot of partying and drinking. She needs to smarten up and prove to social services that she is capable of taking care of her children.
I really hope this is last we see of Kayla, and that Craig and Bethany move on and find some happiness in their lives.
Eva is a lot more understanding than I would be, particularly how nasty all of the Connors are towards her, shouting at her on the street (particularly Carla who I dislike and wish they hadn't brought back) I can completely understand why she wants to leave.

Tracy Wednesday, 8 August 2018 14:29
You are bang on about Abi... at this rate, she will never get her kids back. Its amazing Seb has grown to be as nice as he is, being dragged-up by a mum like Abi lol

Hey Jude Wednesday, 8 August 2018 16:59
I am also very surprised Seb has turned out as well as he has - its a miracle really!LOL lol

Still on the fence with Abi. Not crazy about her but I don't hate her yet either. She really needs to smarten up if she truly wants her kids back. Eileen and everyone else are going to be kind to her for only so long and then we'll see Eileen kicking Abi's bum to the curb

Lise Wednesday, 8 August 2018 18:01
This has happened a few times on Corrie.
Tyrone and Chesney turned out ok considering their dreadful Mums. Are there others?

Gail Wednesday, 8 August 2018 19:13
I can't stand Abi either! She's a nasty waste of space. When she was crunching on those crisps at Beth and Kirk's housewarming party I wanted to smack her one LOL Her kids deserve better than her IMO. Oh please don't let her and Steve end up together. I have this dreaded fear that might be coming. :(

Nell Thursday, 9 August 2018 19:20
They do seem to want to make Abi into the next Becky. Gail, I too hope they don't put her together with Steve!

Isn't the actress who plays Abi going out with the actor who plays Tim? I think I read that somewhere. Or maybe I'm imagining things.

I like Craig best when he was involved with that girl he met when at camp...

Tracy Wednesday, 8 August 2018 14:27
Yes! forgot about her!

Alice Wednesday, 8 August 2018 14:58
The PTB seem to have forgotten Craig's talent for art, which would probably suit him better than being a cop. If he stays with the cops perhaps he could become a sketch artist.

Jim Wednesday, 8 August 2018 15:05
Tracy..i usually forget characters but that girl stuck with me...Alice..i prefer Craig as a sketch artist!!!

Tracy Wednesday, 8 August 2018 15:18
Yes a much better artist than a copper, that's for sure!

I didn't care for Eva's turnaround but that's Eva, always doing the goofiest things! After the way Carla spoke to Eva I would have done nothing to help the Conners, who are getting nastier all the time. Why would anyone help the person who kidnapped their child? Anyway, she says she's leaving and that's probably for the best all round. It was pretty rich for Peter to warn Adam about her after some of the stunts he's pulled in the past. He and Carla deserve each other IMO.

I'm not sure why Bethany thought Neil would admit anything to his daughter and that scene fell kind of flat for me though I suppose it made her feel stronger to confront him. I only hope this is the end of this storyline and they all move on and get the help they need, especially Craig who's been a real mess lately.

As for Claudia, a lot of people seem to dislike her because of her voice and looks but this is not an American soap where everyone has to be beautiful and wear designer clothes and hairdos. She and Audrey look pretty good for their age and it's interesting for me to see the older actors get story lines for a change. Ken hasn't been on for ages, it seems and we see Rita once in a while but I suppose the older ones don't have the stamina for a lot of screen time - and the powers that be are after a young audience.

Tracy Wednesday, 8 August 2018 11:45
Eva felt compassion because of her love for Aiden, and felt jail time would only make matters worse. But she doesn't want to speak with Johnny, which is understandable. I like the way the complicated situation has been played out.
"fell flat", that's exactly it Haili. I thought it was silly of Bethany to go to the hospital with Kayla.
Does anyone know any spoilers on this story? Please tell me its done for good!

haili Wednesday, 8 August 2018 12:17
I doubt that a judge would have given Johnny jail time considering his illness but you never know. I liked the way the police woman spoke to him, saying it was no mistake.

Alice Wednesday, 8 August 2018 12:28
Think I'll nickname Claudia Bloody Mary. Mary I of England was said to have such a low voice that people in the next room thought a man was speaking.

Nell Wednesday, 8 August 2018 13:07
I like both Audrey and Claudia. Claudia is meant to be OTT. I'd sooner see these two on screen than shrieky, self-entitled Maria. If only Maria's voice was lower pitched, I might be able to stand hearing her talk about herself a bit more.

Hey Jude Wednesday, 8 August 2018 13:43
Tracy and Haili: that's exactly how I feel too.

Not feeling tbe love for this Claudia. How long is she supposed to be around? Her voice grates on my last nerve and I don't like her snobbiness/smugness. Lol

Tracy Wednesday, 8 August 2018 14:26
I don't know how long she is supposed to stick around. The one thing that I do enjoy about her smugness, is how Audrey reacts to her. Audrey is a very well-written and consistent character, and everything seems very 'real' about her. I can feel Audreys stress now that Claudia has showed up again.

blitzen Wednesday, 8 August 2018 14:56
I love Claudia's voice. I guess I've got a bit of a thing for women with low voices. And I love the scenes between her and Audrey, it's good, old-fashioned Corrie for me!

Nell Wednesday, 8 August 2018 16:33
A part of me feels uncomfortable for commenting on people's voices, as people are born with the voices they're born with and it's out of their control. I've always felt sorry for those with higher, screechy voices. Not all of whom are women. For me, it's like nails on chalkboard.

Rula Lenska (Claudia) has always had a wonderfully rich, earthy, low pitched voice. It's noticeably lower now than before, perhaps due to health issues, or smoking, or who knows. The Youtube link I posted below (Alberto V05 ad) shows what her voice used to be like.

My favourite female singers mostly have lower voices, too. The only higher pitched voices I gravitate towards belong to cats. wink

Hey Jude Wednesday, 8 August 2018 16:45
Blitzen: Just talking about deep voices: did you ever see the Seinfeld episode where he talks about the woman who was *a low talker*!?LOL OMG it was SO funny!LOL Part of the skit is on Youtube

Tracy: Thats true! Claudia really gets up Audrey's nose and it's so funny how she reacts to Claudia!LOL

Hey Jude Wednesday, 8 August 2018 16:50
Of course she was a little OTT, whispering really, but it was hilarious as the only one who understood her was Kramer!LMAO lol

Nell Wednesday, 8 August 2018 17:07
I remember that Seinfeld episode. Like you say HJ, the character whispered and mumbled inaudibly. When they called her the "low talker", they meant low volume.

[www.youtube.com]

Lise Wednesday, 8 August 2018 18:49
I dislike Claudia for her personality. I like her voice.

Betty (Lauren) Bacall was known for her distinctive low voice. It was very sexy!

Nell Thursday, 9 August 2018 00:25
Lise, yes! I love Lauren Bacall in the few movies I've seen her in! Also Candice Bergen's voice is distinctive; she was sometimes compared to Lauren Bacall, wasn't she. Was Bacall's first name Betty?

Lise Thursday, 9 August 2018 15:02
It was. She was always addressed as Betty by her friends and family. Didn't care for her 'movie name' Lauren.

Lauren Bacall born Betty Joan Perske
