Conversation Street Podcast Episode 416


On our latest podcast, we break down our thoughts on the excellent episodes of Corrie shown in the UK between the 27th April and the 1st May (Episodes #10,054 - 10,056).

This week, Iain MacLeod finally found the memo that Kate Oates left him when he took over as producer: if you want people talking about Corrie, sometimes you've just got to go dark. For us, this week's episodes, in which we saw the climax of Yasmeen's long-running torment at the hands of evil Geoff, were some of the most adrenaline-inducing we've watched in a good long while, with a level of intensity not seen since the height of the Pat Phelan drama. Hats of to Shelley King, Ian Bartholomew and everyone behind the scenes for putting together some truly teriffic telly. Oh yeah, and some stuff happened with Asha, Gary and Ken too.

Not a whole lot in the way of news this week, but we cobble together a few headlines into a brief Kabin segment next, and we finish off the podcast with some listener feedback including some of your immediate reactions to Friday's climactic cliffanger.

Coronation Street may have originated as a serial about down to earth, working class folk, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for a bit of class! In our character profile this week, we take a look back at Corrie's fabulous friseur Claudia Colby, from her entrance on the arm of Lewis Archer and her friendly rivalry with Audrey to becoming the classiest notch on Ken's bedpost.
