Jonathan Harvey interview: Corrie, Dusty and Manchester tart


Jonathan Harvey writes some of the funniest lines for Corrie and recently he has been heavily involved with the incredibly emotive Aidan Connor story, which has been handled really sensitively. 

I have followed his career from his plays such as Canary and Beautiful Thing, his time on Corrie and his excellent novels which always provide me with a witty Summer read. A review of his latest novel is here by our blogger Ryan Oxley.

He is currently involved with the musical, Dusty, on writing duties and you end up thinking, how does he get the time? 

Read more here, as we chat over a brew and a Manchester tart. And laugh along, as he mentions a priceless Mary Cole line, which still makes me giggle.

Coronation Street episode review, Weds 23 May, 8.30pm


With Ali's new-found relationship with Michelle really improving, Ryan needs his mam and the poor doc gets dropped. Meanwhile, Gary's statement means that David gets 18 months, suspended. The reason David is in trouble sits in the Rovers with Alya. Every dog has his day. 

Fiz has gone from sanctimonious again to jealous and acting upon her mini mean girl daughter's lies. So Ty is in the doghouse, as Fiz thinks he is after the new mechanic, Abi, Seb's mum. 

Ryan arrives and has had a Dallas/Dynasty moment, as this is the third incarnation of the character. He has gone from drug dealer to comedy skit from the Inbetweeners. He falls over drunk, cue canned laughter. 

David comes home and Max blanks him. Poor lad feels neglected. Shona is to turning into one helluva fine character, in the true tradition of mighty and marvellous Corrie women. She goes to see Alya and inform her that he is trouble. "Your boyfriend is not who you think he is." You tell her! 

Sarah visits Nicola as she feels like Gary does, that she needs some support. Little do they know her online friend from the mum's net style website is actually Mr Phelan. 

Shona advises David that he must go to the police. She has a point, as it turns out David is not the only victim. Michelle rings son number one and tries to find out he his interview went. Son number 2 (I forget which one is the birth son!) Offers to help help out with Robert's stag do. 

Yasmeen is upset that Zeedan is upping out of Weatherfield. London is his destination and for Corrie characters, there seems to be no Virgin train which is only just over 2 hours from there to Euston. Maybe if there was, Ty could put Hope on it, as she is continuing to lie or repeat things to wind her mum up. 

Gary calls in on Nicola and the two of them view a video of a woman she has befriended. Nic is very intelligent, so why does she not suspect that no picture on the profile = trouble. 

Zeedan packs up his camouflage t shirts and decides to leave. Leanne says goodbye and you realise they would have been a nice couple, apart from the dad thing! Poor Yasmeen misses his exit. Or does she? She runs out into the road and apologises to him. Their relationship is beautifully drawn and she gives him a long goodbye which ends with "Carpe Diem!" 

So long, Zeedan. Long may Yasmeen reign, as she is proving to be a fine Corrie matriarch since the Kate/Rana storyline broke. 

A good build up to next week's late night Phelan episodes.

Coronation Street Episode Review; Weds 23rd of May 2018 7.30pm



Welcome to Wednesday's edition of the Coronation Street Blog and the first of tonight's two-episode reviews.

Faye breaks the 'first one to talk, did it' rule while lingering around Eileen's backyard. Hiding behind a snazzy new fringe, will Faye's revenge against Eileen remain undiscovered?. Nicola Rubenstein is still on her side, but what has angered Faye all of a sudden?.

As David's day of reckoning calls, Shona is in a race against time to try and retrieve some form of mitigating circumstances.



On the street, Josh's old gym buddy turns up and admits she's seen Shona hanging around his old place of work. Is the net slowly closing in on Josh?.


The mitigating circumstances tact would help Zeedan too but it looks like he's leaving the street anyway. Jaded by the KANA romance and the back alley fight, not even Imran, Yasmeen, nor Rana's upset has any effect on his decision.



Meanwhile, the police tell Eileen to take notes, but they're still convinced Phelan is dead. Although we must remember, this is Weatherfield police. They tell Eileen he's been spotted at a karaoke in Luton (what would Phelan's song choice be?)and even a library in Abergele, North Wales.

Abergele you say.. in a caravan? with a beard?.

I wouldn't sharpen your pencil too soon, Eileen!.

Anyway, that's me done for another week.

I'm @rybazoxo your self-styled 'Cobbles Connoisseur'


Keep an eye out for @GlennWrites and his 8.30pm episode synopsis.
TARA!
