Hello! It's just Jordan with this week's Wednesday review. And what an episode I have to review for you tonight.
As we all know, it's Corrie's 'big week' of the year. It's the week which two years ago saw the death of Tina McIntyre and an explosion of carnage in last year's events, all conveniently tied in with the Britain's Got Talent finals. Those lucky residents of Weatherfield- they're always too caught up in a deadly drama to get the chance to be inundated with it.
|"I don't see how things can possibly get any worse for this family"|
|"You're not a mother. You don't understand. You hurt my child. |
I hurt you"
|"It's a bit wet down here but- Roy Cropper, will you marry me?"|
"What? No.. no. I can't...I have to get the car!"
|"Crikey! You need to go on a diet!"|
|"You saw it. She tried to kill me!"|
"It's a shame she missed!"
Carla can't help herself and drives towards Tracy. The smug look on her face is replaced by an open jaw as she leaps out of the way. Carla ultimately decides to avoid her but in the process, she knocks Cathy over, who is just stepping out of Dev's after making an emergency chocolate purchase. Tyrone frantically moves in order to avoid the out-of-control Car-la and spectacularly parks the truck he has borrowed from Kevin right in the Grannexe. It's all a bit of a mess really. Cathy is unconscious on the ground and Roy rushes to her side, borrowing Alex's phone to call for help. Carla herself seems to be little more than shaken up and merely watches as the Platts run across to the Grannexe. Kylie and Sarah gather the children and take them outside and send David to go and inspect the damage caused to the cemetery. Outside, the emergency services have arrived on the Street, having stamped their loyalty card on the way in. When Cathy is being lifted into an ambulance, Roy coldly ignores Carla as she calls for him. As it turns out, Fiz actually got to wear her posh dress to a big event after all. David joins Sarah and Kylie outside and confirms their fears.
|"How bad is it?"|
"It's bad. When they pull that truck out, they're gonna find Callum's body"
An absolutely fantastic episode tonight. Marvellous performances from the whole cast, but I'd like to single out Alison King as Carla - a great actress and wonderful character whom I and many others will miss dearly - and Sally Ann Matthews as Jenny- a character who has fast become one of my favourites. I wish her many more years of cobble drama.The only thing that is bothering me is Nick's reaction to the whole thing. I know he's got that silly brain damage card to play, but aside from that- why is he that bothered that Carla had a one night stand? Both of them have been unfaithful in previous relationships and it's not as if what Carla did even mattered in the grand scheme of things. But I understand that there has to be a story- and what a story this is turning out to be. As long Britain's Got Talent is running, we are guaranteed at least one week of solidly fabulous episodes a year.
