I hate to say this but sounds like they need Stephen King in this role. He is an insanely prolific writer with an over-abundance of ideas constantly pouring from his mind. Just think what mayhem and suspense he could create on the Cobbles!

They need to check out some of these fan based chat/blog sites for ideas. I've read a ton of great storyline ideas from Corrie fans.

I agree with you Anon 02:18 AND the storylines from the fans are way better than anything we are getting from the show right now. Maybe what they need is a good blog editor to take all the suggestions from fans and come up with decent storylines. Could be really fun and a joy to watch.
