Haili, no I wasn't kidding about the dog chewing off the woman's head. The father, Joe, bashed his wife in the head at the top of the stairs, then got back into bed so when authorities came it would look as if he couldn't have done it because he was bedridden. It took about four days for the smell to be noticed by a passing neighbour. In that time, the dog was trapped in the house with nothing to eat so he ate his way through her neck and her head rolled downstairs. Then while Joe was in hospital, he asked the police for a cigarette and stupidly jumped out of bed to smoke it by the window. Busted!
At the end of this past Saturday's show, it was revealed that the husband and wife had worked together to tie up, sexually abuse and kill the young men, one of whom was their son. They then killed their oldest daughter and cut off her head so she'd fit into a small space under the floor boards in their bedroom. Joe tried to blame his wife for all the earlier murders but he slipped up by saying that his wife had cut off their daughter's head and he knew nothing about it. Since the police hadn't told him about the decapitation they knew he had been involved in all the murders that took place in that house.
With all these plot twists, Suranne Jones must have felt she was back on Coronation Street. wink

Hi Annette!
I missed the Beatle special. Was Julian Lennon in the audience?

Stella, who I have never thought much of as an actress, and never found her character all that interesting gives the British press a little whine about being on Corrie. Did not care for her on screen and she sounds like a real piece of work off stage too--
SCENE
(hand to forehead) - that commute -- Manchester to London just was too much and then they turned me into an extra-- woe is me--

Totally enjoyed the Beatles Tribute last night! Ringo was fabulous..didn't remember he could sing as well as did. John was my fav..his son Sean was in the audience sitting beside mom Yoko. I kept wishing they would get a better close-up of Sean as he looks so much like his dad. he looks like his dad did when the Beatles went up the mountains to learn to meditate amongst other things. LOL

Leah: re. Scott and Bailey, I assume you're kidding about the dog chewing the head off! This week they showed all the skeletons and the daughter being arrested. From what I saw, they're still trying to figure out the order in which they were killed and how, etc.

Bad news for me about Katy. She is an extremely boring character and makes Ken look like Mr. Excitement! I always liked Ken and thought he was more interesting than most of the other men on the show. Dierdre finds him boring because she doesn't read much and they're just together because they ran out of other prospects IMO.

I hope they move things along quickly with Roy. They have milked that story line enough.

Thanks for the write-ups being put on this site. I've just finished reading them and realize Mary should now know it was Hayley's idea to end her life early and Roy didn't stop it like he wanted to ( which could maybe get him in trouble + possibly Anna or even Carla...with police who knows).

Thank you so much, Chris. Guess I'll just have to wait for a stable edition of FF, as you suggested. In the meantime, you've saved me a lot of wasted effort and worry.

Haili, you probably thought I was crazy with that post about Scott and Bailey. Last week was the first time I'd ever watched it and I didn't realize there was another part to it the previous week in which the husband killed the wife at the top of the stairs, then the dog chewed off her head and it rolled downstairs. Just saw it on youtube. That was way cool! I'll never miss S. and B. again. I love rolling heads. Never read Anne of Green Gables as a young girl (thought she was an idiot), but did read the biographies of Ann Boleyn, Catherine Howard, Jane Grey, Mary Queen of Scots and Marie Antoinette. History is my passion. I'd love to have a chat with Ken Barlow about it. History classes in British schools must be lots more fun than ours.

Leah, I don't know anything about Windows 8.1 (Touch), but I've read that users with alternate browsers have had some difficulty. There is only a beta version of Firefox currently available for Windows 8.1; if you want FF, you'll have to wait until Mozilla release a stable version. I'm unfamiliar with Opera and Chrome. Perhaps some users could offer there experiences.

Options: 1. Wait until a stable version of FF, Opera or Chrome is released. 2. Downgrade to Windows 7 (which, unfortunately, will cost you a license fee). frown

Just a quick word to start things off. If any of you have any problems accessing other parts of corrie.net over the next few days, please be patient. The ISP has moved everything to new servers and it may take a couple of days for the corrie.net name to pick up and redirect properly to the new servers. Sometimes holding the ctrl key down and refreshing the page may help. Or it just may mean wait a day or so.

Well, it's tomorrow. Hayley looks dreadful. Good makeup job, ITV! She really looks ill and I've read that Julie H. actually did a crash diet to lose weight for the storyline to make it look better. Anyway, she's intent on seeing Fiz and the kiddies today and gets a bonus visit from Rita as well. She gets really emotional with the children after a short while so pretends she's tired. Poor Roy knows why, knows it's the last time she'll see them. Even Anna can sense something's up. Upstairs, after a little sleep brought on by the pain meds, they sit together and it's obvious Roy knows what's coming though tries to deny it or put it off and when he can't, he starts to break down. Oh gosh.

And later, Hayley watches life go on outside her window. Roy has gone out to the Kabin and Hayley decides to iron a shirt for him to wear at the funeral even though it's a struggle for her. The last thing she can do for him, I guess. The last thing she can do for someone else is a few birthday cards but it's more difficult than she thought.

As irritating as Norris is, even he can be concerned now and then. I liked that he finally noticed that Roy was not himself. Roy watched life going on as well as Sinead moved in with Chesney, all loved up. Looked like Roy didn't want to go back home and he certainly didn't want to deal with Gloria's complaints. Carla could sense something was wrong as well. Roy was bound to try one last time to keep her with him a little while longer. There are no words really to describe these last few scenes. They were full of love, dignity, pain and grief. Perfection from David Neilson and Julie Hesmondhalgh. Anna and Carla have tears streaming down their faces. Anna immediately rinses out the glass Hayley used and Carla didn't click in straight away why Anna washed the glass I don't think. The doctor didn't suspect anything. Roy didn't say too much during the whole episode after she died but you know, it's a testament to David Nielson's acting that he didn't need to.

I liked that the pub was filled with people talking everyday things when Anna came in to find Fiz, contrasting life and death nicely. Also a lovely touch when Sean turned off the jukebox. The news spread quickly and most people were very cut up. Hayley touched so many lives. I think Norris was really a lot more upset than you might have expected. Even Tracy kept it low key and seemed to realize that her mother needed comfort.

Roy is left alone in the flat with childrens' birthday cards and Hayley's empty anorak. Everyone is reeling. Carla and Peter were really good with the factory workers. Roy can't stop keeping himself busy. Roy's the kind of person that takes comfort in order and normalcy and clinging to that is what's getting him through this though nobody else seems to recognize that. The more people fuss over him, the more his frustration mounts. You know he's holding on to the anger at Hayley deciding to end her own life, too. You could hear it when he says that Hayley planned it the way she wanted and made all the decisions. You could hear it when he told Anna he should have stopped her.

You know they all want to help, you know he doesn't think he needs it but he does, at least in some areas. And Anna does know the secret and she does know he must be feeling even worse than most who have lost their partner.

Sinead and Chesney get the wrong ends of the stick but Hayley tells Chesney to take a chance and he manages to get out the question he'd been trying to ask since that morning. Will Sinead move in with him? Yay! She will!

Beth sure knows the way to Sinead's conscience. I'm sure Beth and Kirk aren't as desperate as she says. She must be on benefits? Or would she get benefits if she was sacked? She wants to move in with Chesney and Sinead. Where are they going to put them all? It's only a two bedroom house. Two couples and a growing teenage boy and somewhere for Joseph to sleep when he stays over... sardines? But look! Chesney reckons he and his family leaned on others so if he's in the position to give something back, he should. You never would have thought he'd have grown up so well with his background and it's nice to see that there's at least one kid that doesn't end up being a mess. I do hope they're going to charge rent!

Leanne and Stella are still walking on eggshells and the atmosphere in the Bistro is thick. Meanwhile, Gloria and Dennis are planning another gig, much to Rita's disgust. Nick was so nice to Leanne but she can't bring herself to get intimate with him.
Nick is lost in thought and Leanne's walking on eggshells. He later took out his frustrations in running and pushing himself and Kal in competition. Didn't work. He fell, they fussed over him and he lost it again. Poor lad, really is having trouble managing. Leanne is stressed, Simon is unhappy, his life is a mess. Nick doesn't half pick his moments trying to talk seriously to Leanne while she's so busy. When they finally spoke, he can see the truth and made her see it. It's over. There's nothing there, not in his view. He can't see a way forward. He can't go on hurting her and he doesn't think he's getting better. Ever. He's insisting on a break up even though she doesn't want it. Secretly, though, I think she's relieved even though she's hurt terribly and feels guilty she couldn't see it through.

Maddy's a little piece of work isn't she? Stole Sally's bag and now wants 50 pounds to return the watch and Sophie is going to do it. Sophie has to find a way to get her mother's watch from Maddie. Advice from Katy and Steph doesn't seem to help. No money no watch, no watch no money, it's a Mexican standoff but Sophie won in the end. Too right. Maddie doesn't have a leg to stand on. She stole it, she shouldn't be rewarded for giving it back but now Maddy knows where Sophie lives. And while the cat's asleep, the mouse will break in and rob the place, or try. Tim stopped her and she cracked him across the nose but she didn't get teh watch. But naturally, he's not going to admit he was beaten up by a girl.

Gloria isn't much help at the Bistro, too involved in her new venture with Dennis, managing a band. Norris sticking his nose in isn't helping. And Rita whining about feeling left out? If she was a bit more supportive and kind, it might be different. Dennis admits he feels a bit left out between Rita and Norris. I think David and Kylie are winding up Gail about a shed. Fun though. She gets sucked in every time! I'm kind of surprised Nick did go home, considering the bad feelings between he and David. Maybe with Nick moving back in, though, a shed might not be such a bad idea. That's another house that's going to need elastic walls.

Lines of the week
Gloria "Suppress a man's passion and it just might pop up somewhere else!" Rita "If anything pops up, I'll give it a whack with me handbag"
Anna to Gloria "But I shouldn't push it because you'll be getting another gesture and it won't have anything to do with good will"
Roy "There's still joy to be had! Why turn your back on it!" (gulp)
Roy "Good night... my love"
Katy about Joseph "He was that loud I thought he'd wake the dead!" (oops, but then, life goes on)
Dennis to Norris "You have got the wrong end of the stick so many times, you wouldn't know the right end if I poked you in the eye with it!"
Leanne "Why should I feel better because someone else is in more pain"
Roy "I should have stopped her!"

Chris and Selby, thank you for your advice re: browsers. I've tried to download both Firefox and Google Chrome but can't get either of them to work with Windows 8.1. I'll have to get someone in to help. It was all I could do to get my printer working with the new computer. Computers have become so complicated. Of course when my brother and I were very little, a computer filled a room. My dad's job at IBM was to operate a machine that cut cardboard into those fill-in-the-boxes cards that fed software into computers. That was back in the fifties and some people hadn't even heard of computers. Dad would bring some blank cards home so my brother and I could draw up 'tickets' for little shows we made up. That was a great use for a computer. smile

Pearl, yes, both Paula Lane and Georgia-May Foote have been promised more storylines. As Katy has the same orange skin-colour as Tina, maybe Stuart Blackburn is hoping Georgia will be accepted as a replacement with the fans for the departing Michelle Keegan. I like Georgia-May, but have never been a fan of Katy Armstrong.

Leah, it may be that the crossword puzzles won't play if you are using an older version Internet Explorer. Or, it may be that they will not play at all with IE as your browser. Other choices are: Firefox, Opera or Chrome.

Thanks Chris for the link below re extented contract. Surely she will have to have a more prominite role this year than last to earn that salary. As stated in one of the comments part of the apeal could be window dressing.

Speculation on future storyline; someone mentioned Beth moving into #5 would be like having Cilla back and yes, I can see that. Two 'low key' people (Chesney & Sineal) living together do need some livewire characters in residence to spark up their lives. On the subject of sparking up, I keep waiting for Cilla or saints forbid Jackie Dobbs to decend on Fiz and Tyrone to put their happy life into a tailspin. Rather than either of them, how about Paul Clayton returning? I liked Tom Hudson when first interduced (or reinterduced from the time he recieved Vera's kidney but that was a different actor) and was disappointed that thePTB had him lead astray by Leanne. He was young, lively, cheerful and not bad looking. We could use a few more characters like that now a days.

Great post re Ken, Monica!

Brynecho: it is true that Rita, Dennis, Gloria et al are working and that's great but it's not the norm. Mind you, I intend, God willing, to keep on working till at least Rita's age and I've got a long ways to go.

But stats aside, I don't agree that someone who is retired is necessarily less interesting than someone who is still working. Ken has lot to say, opinions on a wide variety of subjects. Trouble is, there's really, apart from Roy, no one on the street he can talk to about these things. When he was younger, I think he tried to change the folks around him. Now, he just loves and accepts them for who they are.

Which, I think, is what you and I are going to have to do. I doubt if I will ever convince you that Ken is not boring, and I know you won't convince me that he is. :)

Daphne: we'll have to agree to disagree re. Leanne and Nick. He won't listen to any advice re. taking things easy, staying out of crowds, etc. and there was no reason for him to have to suddenly talk to her when she was busy working when it could have waited until later. I realize he's not thinking clearly due to the head injury but he said himself that he's always angry and hates her and hit her once for no reason. It's not his fault that he was injured but she has come a long way after being raised by the horrible Les Battersby. She's made lots of mistakes but is trying to do better and has been a good steo mom to Simon. Of course Gail will blame her for all this when she was the innocent party this time. David caused the accident when he was provoked by Nick and Kylie's infidelity while Leanne was the last to find out. Many women would have just walked away and stayed away instead of doing their best to help and make the Bistro work while Nick wasn't able to do much but get in the way.

Off topic: Thanks, Jeannie, Chris, Hey Jude and Shirley. My nice neighbours elected some years ago to "keep an eye", so they watch for my lights to go on and off and for me to go in and out (car), and I can call them if I need to. Just have always been so healthy, I thought I'd tough it out. Not smart! Got ticked off right royally by neighbours, friends, sons and best friend in Calgary for being too independent and not phoning.

Last year, when I had to phone the paras (pinched nerve, screaming pain, paralysed leg ... oh, it IS fun getting older!!! I'm thinking of getting a season ticket!), one of them recommended that I get the "Life Line". I said "Naah,", my middle son (in Alberta) said "Yes, you will" and pays for it. I wear the necklace kind. don't even know it's on, you can wear it in shower, etc., It's a good idea. Plus youngest son pays for my cell-phone (well, h..l, they owe me!)so I'm reasonably well "covered".

Offer genuine. It would be lovely to meet some of you with whom I've "chatted" on here. Alas, although I was once a "gourmet cook", I don't do much of that any more, so it could be "take out or eat out".

Haili - I agree the Platts have always thought they were a cut above Leanne but she is well able to take care of herself and she is what she is from choice. Nick is not what he is from choice and to see the Prices, all earning money off him, treating him like a child who has to be humoured gets my goat. In my opinion Leanne has not tried her best. Her help comes across as a duty, not as the loving understanding of someone who wants to see her husband recover. She is making it into martyrdom.

Monique: Great post and you are right: he`s earned the right to sit back and take it easy!
Brynecho: Monique is right! There are a few seniors on the street who choose to work. Since Ken IS a senior, he doesn't HAVE to work if he doesn't feel like it! Being a former teacher all those years ago, he`s probably getting a fairly decent pension. He's earned the right to sit back and take it easy! I wouldn`t want to still be working when I`m well into my 70`s!LOL And the working in Timmies was a joke someone on the GB made up!LOL

Christine, as a puzzle addict I would gladly do the Corrie one. However, my computer won't let me. The message I get is that it's been blocked by my settings. (It won't let me do the Globe and Mail cryptic crossword online either.) Maybe there are other people who have the same problem. However, having made up a few myself, I do understand how much work they are and respect your decision to ease up on them. Cheers.

So - the verdict on the new Story Crossword Puzzle. Nobody said they disliked it, but only four people said they liked it. So it definitely won't be a regular feature, not worth the time it takes to make. But I will do one every once in a while just for those four people! smile

The character of Ken is 74 years old and retired, that's why he's not working. At that age, he has the right to watch documentaries and sit in the pub. Of course some of the older characters still work, like Audrey and Rita and even Dennis felt compelled to take a job as a lollipop man. But that is their choice, no one should feel obligated to keep working when they're well into their seventies. In his working days Ken was a teacher and owned a newspaper.

Mind you, writing this post is making me realize how many senior characters keep working into their old age on the street. Besides Audrey, Rita and Dennis. Gloria is still working at the Bistro and becoming a part time agent with Dennis. Betty worked in the pub until she was over 90. Sylvia was working in the café. Norris is over 70 and works in and owns The Kabin. That's quite a few people for a small community. Is it something in the Northern air that makes these people so robust? Actually even Ken worked in the café with Roy not long ago. Am I missing anyone?

Why is Ken boring? For one thing he doesn't DO anything. In the past few years all he seems to be doing is sitting in his dining room reading or watching some documentary on telly or sitting in the pub giving advice, unsolicited and unheeded, to Tracy or Peter. If he was supposed to be working in a coffee shop in Canada (I don't remember hearing that) maybe he could start working for Dev or Norris. Just so he's doing something other than taking up space.
