Hello folks and welcome to another weekly update. This week the update’s been making a list and next week it’ll check it twice. It’s time to open door number two on the weekly update advent calendar and let’s see who we’ve got. Ooh, lovely and yum, it’s Tom Selleck. And so, without any further ado, here we go with this week’s Coronation Street update.
This week the Windasses moved into Coronation Street. They’re the Battersby’s all over again, so much so that I’m calling them the Windasserby’s. They’re thick, ignorant, violent and noisy and move in next door to the Platts. What’ll it be like living next door to a family of violent thugs with criminal records? The Windasses will soon find out.
The big event of the week was Carla Connor’s wedding, taking up two episodes of its own, both written wonderfully by Damon Rochefort with some cracking dialogue. Sally sipping pink wine: “Ooh, Rosé!” Rosie, without missing a beat: “What mum?” Anyway, there were “I do’s” with Tony in a kilt and a man on the bagpipes. I was going to tell you my bagpipe joke but Sean Tully got in first when he told it to the assembled throng at the wedding reception. Never mind I’ll tell it anyway. What’s the definition of a gentleman? Someone who can play the bagpipes, but doesn’t.
As the wine flows and Sally gets drunk, Kevin turns Neanderthal after a few beers and everyone gives Tony Gordon the evil eye. As if he needs it, too. The Websters’ are in such a state that Carla lets rip at Sally and tells her to behave herself. Sally, and never forget she’s a Seddon and from the wrong side of the tracks, gets revenge at the wedding and shows Maria the video of Carla snogging Liam. Maria spends the rest of the week questioning anything that moves whether they knew anything about Liam and Carla having an affair. She’s beside herself with grief and it makes for really dull viewing. Next!
Steve steps up Operation Bad Boyfriend so that Michelle will hate him and he can run off with Becky. He slopes around the flat in baggy y-fronts, scratching himself, unwashed, unshaved but Michelle hasn’t noticed anything’s wrong. Meanwhile Becky starts to get jealous and wants Steve all to herself as Liz heads off to her Brazilian Crunch class. Ouch.
Molly suspects Tyrone’s up to no good with Amber’s mate Minnie who does indeed drive a Mini. She hasn’t yet been spotted wearing a mini but I’m sure it can’t be long; mini’s never are. Tyrone is indeed deceiving Molly but in a good way, if such a thing exists. He’s scamming with Aunty Pam to sell cheap perfume but Molly thinks he’s chatting up girls and lying about going to the gym and of course she’s spot on. She might be short but she’s good, is Mol.
At Weatherfield General, Janice starts her community service with Emily Bishop supervising her every move. She thinks she’s in for a soft ride when she finds out Emily’s the one looking after her but Emily soon shows her backbone of steel. Years of living with Norris has toughened her up and she sets Janice to work mopping the floor of the canteen and sorting out the bric-a-brac and knick-a-knacks. And it’s not long before Janice turns the head of a fella in the George Formby ward.
And that’s just about that for this week. It’s been a short update despite the fact there were six episode this week. Most of the time was spent watching mooching Maria. Let’s hope things brighten up before Christmas or I may have to sulk.
Coronation Street writers this week were Debbie Oates, Lucy Gannon, Carmel Morgan, Mark Wadlow and Damon Rochefort
