Melissa did a better job than Hetti anyway so the cock up with Lucy Beale was made years ago with her recast. Perhaps DTC thought the same.

To be honest I think quite the opposite - Corrie's characters used to be written with much more warmth and it made them easier to relate to. Nowadays it's written with nothing more than story-lines...

I seriously hope this serves as an indication to TPTB that something needs to change at Corrie.

Can you seriously not think of another reason why the Corrie cast might be looking somber? I think awards are the last things on their minds.

Deirdre was never like that before the writing went down hill. She was reasonable, intelligent and took no crap from people, most certainly not Tracy (for those that remember that slap!).

And yes, I...

It amazes me that most here are quoting the rather contrived comedy as Deirdre's best bits.

Deirdre used to be a serious character but has been written as an absolute joke in the last few years. We...

Enjoyed this. They did a far better job with it than Gail's story, where they totally ignored Brian and Martin.

No, that was late 1995 under Sue Pritchard.

1991/1992 under Mervyn Watson were actually rather good.

Anyway, it was 1996 that was terrible yet the gnome storyline was wrapped up by the end of 1995....

This version of the theme tune needs to go too. Nothing beats the authentic brass band of the original (and of course the 1964 rerecording of the opening them).

The current theme absolutely stinks.

I like Liz but not really keen on where they've taken the character. She used to be a lot more rounded, much less shallow and far less common.

1996 and 2001 were pretty dire, though far better than what's being made now.

The 1997 revamp however created many long term problems, especially the departure of many of Corrie's good writers.

Coronation Street was pretty tremendous in the 1989 to 1995 period. I never really appreciated at the time how good it was. Only now it's in the doldrums and looking back I realise.
