Conversation Street Episode 299

17Mar

In the last podcast of the 200s, we chat about the episodes of Coronation Street between the 12th and the 16th March. A couple of massive talking points in this week's show, starting off, of course, in Street Talk with David's rape. Is it Corrie's duty to inform viewers about this issue that's often considered taboo, was it too much to put on TV before the watershed, and is it just another attempt at ratings grabbing? Of course, the story's only just begun, but in any case, we do our best to look at both sides of the argument, and ponder where things could go next. After more discussion of Tyrone and Gemma's night together and our early reactions to clairvoyant Rosie, we move onto the second big discussion of the week: the new Victoria Street set! We take a look at every nook and cranny of the recently revealed expansion, give our reactions, and wonder how each part might be used on screen. That's followed by a few smaller bits of news, including a report on how Brooke Vincent got on in the Dancing On Ice final. We round off the episode with some feedback, including an email from a new listener and a voicemail.
