Conversation Street Episode 8


On this week's show, we talk about the Coronation Street episodes broadcast in the UK between the 1st and 5th October.  The bulk of our Street Talk coverage this week focuses on Tyrone's new role as a stay at home dad and Maria's breast cancer scare, but we also chat briefly about Mary's new role managing the café, Ken's big secret and the lack of anything particularly interesting happening in Lloyd's storyline!  We also try something a bit different in the profile section this week, as we consider past occasions where characters on the Street have been hit by cancer, and discuss how successful producers have been in featuring this sensitive issue.

    Love the podcast. I actually enjoyed this week’s episodes. I am the same with Tvor with Ken and Wendy. I want Deidre to fight for her man a la Eileen and Gail hehehehe (Never will happen). Love Lloyd’s family story line but I was upset about the Maria/ Marcus storyline….. I think they are preparing to write Marcus out of the series. I think this is the death knell of him on the street.

    I remember my first story line when I first watched Corrie. This was alma and the cancer storyline. I lost my Granmother 6 months before and was having a trouble coping and that story line help me quite a lot.

    Keep up the good work

    I agree with Tvor and Jason as well. Ken is so utterly predictable. It would be lovely this time if he didn’t have an(other) affair. But Deidre will be livid whether he does or not. He’s been doing some brilliant prevaricating. On the bi issue, didn’t Michelle date some gorgeous rich guy who ended up getting it on with Sean, or someone Sean knew? I’ve never been a huge Michelle fan (except when she’s trashing Tracy) so it’s all a bit hazy.
