Having just watched the first half of tonights double, I am moved to tears as I have been throughout the whole cancer storyline. If ever there was a story about true love, loyalty and devotion, Roy & Hayley are it.
I thought there would never be another couple on the street that would ever share that same feeling as Jack and Vera - I, and many others, have been proved wrong.
Never mind prestigious awards, the fact that they're pulling tears from our eyes is worthy of higher honours - a true testament to not just the writers, but the actors too. By this time next week, I feel I will have gone through more emotions than I ever thought possible, but every step of the way will have been worth it.
To the entire Coronation street team - you have pulled something amazing out. Something powerful, potent and utterly brilliant - there is no thank you big enough.
If I can get through tonights 2nd episode without a tear, then this write up would've been worthless.

Is anyone over the age of fourteen ever as randomly unpleasant as Tracey is portrayed time and again? The issue I, and many others who have commented seem to have, is that her rudeness is not particularly rooted in anything people say to her at the time or in her past. Having watched for 35 years, I can see that she was nothing like this as a child but became difficult as a teenager around the time of her parents' divorce, having had a stable childhood with Ken and Deirdre. She didn't become like this until well into adulthood when Kate Ford took over the role, which leads to the conclusion the choice of actress is determining the portrayal of the character.

I'm looking forward to seeing how they've written for Roy in the next while. He lacks the emotional skills to handle such a crushing event as this. This is an opportunity to show the difficulties faced by people with his type of social disability. I hope the writers have consulted experts, like they have done for Hayley's storyline. Roy will no doubt be surprised at the amount of support he'll be offered, but whether he can accept and use it remains to be seen. It's unfortunate that Stephanie Cole was unable to continue in the role of his mother. That could have been an interesting relationship to explore under these painful circumstances.
