Seb to Pick a Pocket or Two?

In this life, one thing counts, in the bank, large amounts – where Phelan’s concerned at least. No stranger to a scam, and a relentless opportunist, has one of the greatest villains ever to con the cobbles set his sights on an apprentice?

Leanne meets the Flintstones

Coronation Street double episode review, Friday 3 February 2017. If anything summed up Friday’s double Corrie for me, it was Nick picking apart a rose with that beleaguered face he seems to be permanently sporting these days.

Coronation Street Blog Exclusive: Interview with Chris Harper

New character Nathan Curtis has spent just under a month on Coronation Street, and yet has already provided viewers with enough reason to believe he is a sinister prospect, particularly where Bethany Platt is concerned.

Creating Coronation Street Blog – The Book

When Coronation Street Blog editor Glenda came up with the idea of publishing a book of our blog posts through the years, I was thrilled. A blog, by its very nature, is a living thing, and as new posts are added, old ones naturally fall further away from its home page, and into the archives,… Continue reading Creating Coronation Street Blog – The Book

In with the Old and Out with the New

Coronation Street episode review, Friday 30 December 2016. It’s New Year’s Eve on the cobbles, a time for celebrations, revelations, secret escapes and public farewells. Mary certainly called it when she said it had been a whirlwind Christmas as she prepares to leave for a new life in South Africa with Jude and his pregnant… Continue reading In with the Old and Out with the New
