Corrie Comicals week ending 20 July 2018

This week hinted that the comedic coupling of Tim and Sally might be back.  She may have been forced to resign as mayor following the deceitful Duncan's dodgy dealings but she is hopeful that the Gazette will use that nice picture of her in a green dress and knee-high boots - which gave Tim cause to check out her legs!  Sally also provided Alya with some useful insider business knowledge to help keep her afloat.

This is not so funny.  When Corrie moved sets a lot of fuss was made about how good the new one was to match the previous one.  A notable feature of the previous set were two rails encased in the cobbles outside Websters.  I have been waiting for a suitable shot to see if they had been carried over or not.  As we can see - NOT.  I shall check further when I visit the new set at the end of September.

Steve and Tracy have just witnessed Abi being ushered into a police car (she needs to give a witness statement about the drug dealer arrested moments before).  Tracy is suggesting that Abi has been arrested for being in possession of a gob.  To which I will simply observe that it takes one to know one!

The amusement continues chez Eileen (due back any second) as the parental influence {Seb} is trying to explain to his teenage mother {Abi} on the need to separate and recycle rubbish.  I wonder where they would put four bins (our local arrangement for rubbish) in the back yards.  The need for numerous bins and managing them also came up in "The Affair" this week, so it is obviously a worldwide problem!

Gemma has told Henry to get lost and shut up but in the other order.  She is now telling Rita that Henry has bought her the Rovers where she will be landlady, that he has left his posh bird (Cress and eggs), abandoned his family and that he loves Gemma.  Then within seconds realisation strikes as to what she is saying and she is on the phone summoning Henry back to her side!

Mainly because we are glad she is back this line from Eileen scores as on the other side of the cab office Tracy tells Steve she has found the perfect place for their wedding and Eileen simply observes "Billy Smart's Circus" as she is implacably opposed to the union (or in fact reunion).

Dev is talking to Steve in the Rovers assuring him that he and Tracy will be as happy as anyone else which gave rise to Steve's face twisting as we see.  Steve however has been pondering some earlier words from Liz "If you marry the wrong person it's cursed from day one."  So Steve says he is marrying Tracy to ensure Amy remains happy.

Instead of "Extras at Work" this week a little question for the powers that be:

This screenshot comes from the front door of Prima Doner looking along Rosamund Street and we see the closed shop of "Eccleston & Sons" under the viaduct which runs at the back of the Rovers.  This is a closed ironmongers shop (and is not where Sally had her hardware shop a few years ago).  Can someone please explain why in theory Brian and Cathy could not be re-opening this shop?

Speak for yourself, we're not all glad that Eileen is back!

I'm glad Eileen's back. The old Eileen. Not the twit who took up with Phelan.
