great introductionory interview on their website with new Coronation Street producer Stuart Blackburn.
In the interview Stuart talks about his vision for our favourite show.
"My vision of Corrie is really simple. The first episode wasn’t
whimsical, it wasn’t a comedy, it wasn’t a nostalgic love-fest. It was
gripping urban drama done on popular television for the very first time." Stuart explains
“It was kind of revolutionary – the lives, loves and aspirations of the
working classes. What I want Corrie to do is retain that wit, the warmth
He also talks about the rumours of axings, and of the rumors of returning characters such as Toyah and Sarah Louise. Stuart's vision for the show sounds quite interesting, and a little bit different to what Phil Collinson's vision was.
I'm looking forward to seeing what Stuart has in mind for the show.
