Grace Dent's take on Dev's Uncle Umed

The marvellous Grace Dent, she of the World of Lather in The Guardian, had a few things to say about Uncle Umed this week, things I've been saying for ages!

Back in May, I reckoned he was a fake. Grace agrees, calling him a "compulsive liar". He's been spinning stories ever since he arrived, quite suddenly after a generic: "Hey how you doin', drop in if you're ever in the neighbourhood," email from Dev. Having said that, I am finding him funny in a pathetic sort of way.

Grace also called Molly "Daisy Duke", Tyrone "the walking Weetabix" and Claire, "nagging, airtime-squandering wife" (*snork*) She adores Graeme as do most of us, his philosophy and Greek chorus-ability a steady source of amusement and wonder. (Last night he and Roy got into a discussion about cocoa. Roy thought he'd found a kindred spirit but Graeme doesn't really like the stuff, he was just curious! Wonderful!)

Molly as Daisy Duke??? More like Daisy Puke! That's how I feel about her pawing over Kevin Webster.

I like Graeme,I think he is the best out of all the young ones in Corrie these days.
