Mothers and sons are a soap staple and on Corrie this week, there was one with a twist. Hayley wanted very much to meet her son Christian again, even though last time they met he beat her up, unable to cope with the fact that his dad was now his mum. So it doesn’t bode well when Christian turns up at Roy’s Rolls after Hayley contacts him out of the blue and asks to meet up. They retire to the Rovers but Christian still has trouble with transsexual Hayley. Christian’s a dad to two kids, and Hayley tells him to “to be a good dad”. “I couldn’t be worse than you,” he replies. Hayley takes her cue, and with Roy beside her, walks out of the pub and her son’s life. Back at the flat, Hayley encourages Roy to continue his driving lessons and to plan for his life when there’s a great big Hayley-shaped hole in it. I’ve already ordered my bulk-buy of tissues, have you?
Elsewhere, desperate to get away from Sally, Tim tells her he’s gone away to work but hides away up in his flat instead. Tim’s got Jason at his beck and call bringing him takeaways and booze while Tim’s daughter Faye’s develops an addiction to text messaging her new best mate, mardy Grace.
And that’s about that for this week.
This week's writers were John Kerr, Jan McVerry, Carmel Morgan, Debbie Oates
and Chris Fewtrell. Find out more about the Coronation Street writing team at http://coronationstreetupdates.blogspot.com/2008/11/exclusive-all-current-corrie-writers.html
