The return of the Square Dealers to Coronation Street

I loved hearing last night on Coronation Street the Square Dealers getting a mention.  The Square Dealers, eh? Now, there's a blast from the past. 

Along with a mention of David's epilepsy in the same episode, it was like harking back to long-forgotton scripts. Shame then that Corrie forgot where it was going with Tim's literacy storyline. If Tim can't read, how did he come to get in touch with daughter Faye over the internet? 

Anyway, I digress.  Back to the Square Dealers.

Kal's dad is now a member of the Square Dealers, it appears, and has gone off with them all to a tour of Scottish whisky distilleries.  

The Square Dealers, you might remember (as I don't, not fully) was Weatherfield's equivalent to the Freemasons.  I seem to recall that Fred Elliott was the Grand Master in the Square Dealers, as was Norris and Reg. It was kind of a businessman's club and women, as far as I recall, weren't allowed to join.

With the return of The Square Dealers, I wonder if we'll see WARTS next?

Hm, I thought it strange that a Muslim who would be forbidden to drink alohol would go on a tour of a whiskey distillery. Shows more of the disjointed writing lately. And who else would be in the Square Dealers - Dev? With Fred gone, what is the point of it exactly?

Oh how I loath Kal's mum - she is such a harridan, with no redeeming features whatsoever.

I'd be willing to bet Sharif's eagerness to go on a distillery tour had more to do with a few days away from his bossy wife and getting to hang out with his "boys".

Indeed Tvor, that's what I thought and what Yasmeen was alluding to last night on the show, too.
