Iain MacLeod reveals 2020 spoilers for David and Shona

In this week's Inside Soap magazine there's a very long interview with Coronation Street producer Iain MacLeod who has a few things to say about storylines coming up in 2020. There's so much to share that I'll be blogging these over a few different posts - so stay tuned.

In this blog post I'd like to share some 2020 spoilers for David and Shona.

Iain MacLeod tells Inside Soap this about the Christmas shootout and what it might mean for David and Shona in the coming months. 

"I'm aware that the presence of firearms on Coronation Street full stop is controversial so it isn't a decision we took lightly. Famously, Ernie Bishop was killed by a shotgun many years ago so it's not as though this is the first time we've done something like this...

"We were keen to subvert people's expectations of what they might get from a Coronation Street Christmas episode and, as an evolution of Gary's journey it felt motivated and exciting."

Poor Shona, though!

Iain says that the events of Christmas will provide David and Shona with the biggest test of their relationship. "We sat down and realised that David has never cheated on any of his romantic partners, and we hasten to add that he won't this time either. However, their relationship is sorely challenged, not just in January but over the whole of 2020."

Corrie's Christmas episode was shown in Canada last night, and I must say, I found it horrific, and wholly inappropriate for a Christmas Day showing. I have watched the Street for 43 years, and felt this Christmas Day's episode reached a new low. So sad for Corrie.
