A shared love of Patricia Routledge

David Platt was the beneficiary of an Easter miracle this week when he learned he had been left a windfall in the will of former client, Mrs Moss. It turns out they had a shared love of Patricia Routledge.

As a result of his ability to converse with pensioners about old episodes of ‘Keeping Up Appearances’ and ‘Hetty Wainthropp Investigates’, David now finds himself 20 grand better off and the proud owner of David the dog.

It looks like David (Platt, not the dog) will soon be making a decision about what he does with the money. I imagine he will also have to change the dog’s name or else things will get very confusing at number 8.

I wonder if any of Weatherfield’s older residents will tell David that in her younger days Patricia Routledge was the spitting image of Sylvia Snape, who owned Snape's Cafe on Rosamund Street in 1961.

You can read more about Patricia Routledge’s brief stint in Coronation Street over at Corriepedia. How very meta! 

Happy Easter everyone.

Is it definite or is it Gail getting revenge in a David?

Martin Leay said...

Ah, good question Pete. Well, the dog is definite - I've seen it with my own eyes. And David has been to the solicitor, so that would be a very elaborate ruse from Gail. I hope it's legit now that David has signed a big cheque!
