I love Roy and Cathy. They are my favourite characters. Hopefully, his heroics will reunite them. I also think Anna and Kevin will make a good couple.

it's about time that we have some good old fashioned love on the street - forget about all the fooling around with other people - please give us couples that are suited for each other and respect each other.

I totally agree Anonymous 2.21 that's what I love about Roy and Cathy. A proper old fashioned romance. They love each other and are able to show it without all the usual tactile things and sex. David Neilson and Melanie Hill are a great pairing and act them so well.

That is what I love about Roy and Cathy. Old fashioned romance. They love each other and it is clear without the need for the usual tactile stuff and sex. Great acting from David Neilson and Melanie Hill. Hope they keep them together.

That's why I love Roy and Cathy. It's a proper old-fashioned romance and they show love without the need for over the top tactile stuff and sex. It's brilliant and so well done. David Neilson and Melanie Hill are a great acting partnership and I hope they are kept together.

Precisely. There is nothing wrong with old-fashioned romance which is why I love Roy and Cathy. It has been so well done without the need for the usual over the top tactile things and sex. Their unfussy chemistry is great and David Neilson and Melanie Hill are such a fantastic on screen pairing who act this kind of love out so effectively. There are enough couples cheating and fooling around as you say. Let's keep Roy and Cathy together to offset that.

Carla giving relationship advice? That's a bit rich coming from her. Not liking how hypocritical she's being written recently.

I imagine the graffiti thing is what's leading into Sally running for council but surely the council isn't responsible for cleaning graffiti off a privately owned business, only public surfaces? Kevin should have cleaned his building himself. And it's a bit rich, with all the graffiti on the garage door all these years, to complain about a bit on the wall.

The more the storyline continues regarding Mary and Brendan the more I think the writers do not like Mary. They are taken a character with merit and turned her into a fool.
