Coronation Street Moment

Sue Ellen, you're a drunk, a tramp and an unfit mother.

Coronation Street Moment

I loved this, it was completely unexpected and rather touching.

Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

that was lovely, really beautiful, and I dont even watch Coronation Street. Whats the producers name by the way, we could do with someone of his calibre on Doctor Who :lol: :lol: :lol:

I hadn't read anything about it so I was really surprised to see Liz Dawn again but I thought it was genius and very moving. When Corrie gets it right, it gets it spectacularly right.

It was utterly compelling, genuinely moving and delightfully bittersweet. Liz Dawns reappearance was a bonus as she was always my favourite street character.
Knowing that she was to have this cameo as if welcoming Jack as he passed on, my Mum apparently couldn't watch and left the room at that very minute. Having lost my Dad in February she felt it would upset her too much - as is the calibre of the performances by these two stalwarts. She settled for my verbal run down of how it happened - less painful. It was absolutely fantastic and a fitting end to the Corrie legend.

I don't watch the show any more but I have Sky Plussed this and the rest of this week. I used to love Rita and hope she hasn't died. I also Sky Plussed the very first ep that was repeated last night. I haven't seen it before and I am looking forward to it. In them days they had real actors don't ya know. :)
My next door neighbour mixed up her KY jelly with the superglue. I asked her how she managed that but her lips are sealed.

I stopped watching Coronation Street when they killed off Richard Hillman, that was a high water mark for comedy panto villainy.

I'm not keen on the latest arrangement of the theme tune, it sounds out of tune to me. The idealised titles are terrible as well.

it would be so funny on the live episode tonight if one of the actors for the chop changed their mind and took a note from Monty Pythin and the holy grail

I'm sorry, I'm affraid he's dead
I'm felling a lot better now actully
We couldn't do anything to save him
I think i'm going to pull through actully

The actual 'crash' was filmed very well indeed I thought - but the countless episodes this week of post disaster hysteria, rubble rummaging, Fizzs' screams and Rita's destroyed Bon-Bon counter are proving a bit over the top. Here's hoping the eternal ginger bag croaks soon - I was gutted when Alan Bradley got hit by that tram.
