Of course! Silly me. Trouble was. yes. the Gail scene was pitiful and the "high drama" had more comedy content.

Just seen the Gail scene ...

Apart from the embarrassingly bad "I am woman" acting ... why would you hit a tap with a hammer - and how badly did she act that?:(

Her acting gets worse by the minute.

The next SOR would be if Tracey takes all of that on board and has a complete change of character. She's been portrayed as a vicious personality with no redeeming features who's made...

That's the vital difference, Ken always sees himself as superior to anyone around him, often by a statement which he suspects won't be understood by others. In fact, his life is probably less...

... but I presume you don't make all and sundry, including your wife, feel inferior to you - as Ken always has - I cite the War and Peace debacle with Audrey as an example.

I've only seen Ep 1 from last night so far but, for me, it summed up the depths to which Corrie has sunk in terms of lack of quality of both writing and acting.

Corrie used to at its best portraying...

I bet the clunky "War and Peace Mammoth Volume which Audrey didn't want" story line was a hint? You can just see Ken revelling in an "Aged Eliza Doolittle" task - he loves educating lesser mortals. :o

It was a poor copy of Hilda Ogden's iconic scene when Stan died. Me, I thought, why bring her glasses and nothing else, like her wedding ring, etc?

I think we all need to accept that, unless it's...

If there's any disrespect it's that, after such a long period since Anne Kirkbride died, they've now rushed her final story line.

Same here, a very odd story line. It's almost as if they've changed their mind on its way forward.

I was, initially, with the "Hayley's son's mother" theory.

There there must be more appropriate locations for this verbal diarrhea to be vented and more appropriate targets than those enjoying a harmless, fun thread on Digital Spy.

The "marking time waiting for Steve and Tony to return" scenes are like an extended version of the Acorn Antiques awkward silences! (Actually, on comparison, Acorn Antiques is Oscar standard drama!)
