Corrie writer profile: David Bowker

Sources: Fantastic Fiction, Manchester Evening News, Commapress

David Bowker is Corrie's newest writer. His first episode of Coronation Street was shown on Wednesday 8 October, 2008 (that's last night for those of you who are reading this today!). So, what do we know about the latest addition to the Corrie writing team?

Extensive, er, Googling research on th'internet reveals he's a published author of seven novels and in 1999 was voted Manchester Writer of the Year. He's also worked as a journalist for Elle, International Musician, The Guardian, The Mail On Sunday, Arena and had a regular column in New Woman and The Times. He's also written episodes of Casualty for TV.

Of special note from David's first Corrie episode was the wonderful dialogue between Becky and Roy when Roy quoted Goethe. "Who's Gertie?" asked Becky. Wonderful stuff.

If you can help update any of the Corrie writers’ profiles or provide their up to date pics, do please let me know.

Stockport? It was Southport wasn't it? After all the "best hotel in Stockport" wouldn't be out of a homeless tramp's price range.

Whoops, yes, it probably was Southport. I'll change the post. Thanks! Well spotted anonymous person.

Eh? Stockport? Southport? There's no mention of either in any articles on the blog.

I took out both of the references ;-)
