Conversation Street Episode 261

1Jul

In our latest podcast, we chat about Corrie between the 26th and the 30th June. Just a four-episode week this week, dominated by a few key stories with a couple of extra bits thrown in for good measure. In one of Corrie's worst kept secrets, Pat turns paternal this week, when he reveals to Nicola she's actually his long-lost daughter. Yes, it's all a bit soapy, but we still loved hearing about Phelan's upbringing in Liverpool, and if it means more Connor McIntyre on our screens, you won't hear us complaining! Also this week, Eva finally finds out about Aidan and Maria's affair, and we can't wait to see the return of her vengeful side when she starts to get her own back next week! After Street Talk, we take a look back at 2016 so far, now that we've reached the midway point. From Bashed Barlows to Battersbaby Bombshells, it's been a cracking six months - let's hope they keep up the good stuff in the second half of the year! In the Kabin, we take a look at the TV Choice Award nominations that were revealed this week, then we round the episode off with more of your listener feedback.

Conversation Street Episode 260

24Jun

Episode 260 of Conversation Street takes a look at everything Corrie between the 19th and the 23rd June. Nathan tries to smuggle Bethany away to Belgium on Monday, and we don't think it's for the chocolate. Will she come to her senses in time? Meanwhile, it's all about secret hook-ups elsewhere on the Street: Seb and Faye have a post-prision 'reunion' but get caught out with the classic soap 'leave incriminating evidence at the top of the bin' mistake; Cathy gets locked in the bathroom during a date with Brian; and Aidan and Maria take advantage of Eva going off to France to get in some sexy time - what could possibly go wrong? Following the recent sad news of Roy Barraclough's death, we take a look at Alec Gilroy in a classic character profile next, before celebrating Sam Aston's recent engagement in The Kabin. Finally, we end things as usual with a selection of tweets and emails in the feedback section.

Conversation Street Episode 259

17Jun

On the latest podcast, we talk about the episodes of Coronation Street shown in the UK between the 12th and the 16th June. Being such a Jenny/Johnny-heavy week, it would have been difficult for Corrie to have screwed this one up for us, really, although that's not to say we weren't upset when he dumped her on Monday night! We've got our fingers crossed for a quick reunion, and a lot more scenes with the fantastic Rich and Sal! Elsewhere on the Street, Daniel shows Izzy how a drug-taking scene should really be done, and we're introduced to Drew's daughter, Summer. Bright, adorable...maybe potentially irritating and possibly secretly evil? The jury's out so far, but good to get another clearly talented young actress on the Street nonetheless! After Street Talk, we tackle a pair of listener questions (our  least favourite stories that were generally considered to be strong, and our thoughts on which Corrie houses we'd like to live in), before a short, 'slow news week' edition of The Kabin. As always, we round off the show with the usual feedback.

Conversation Street Episode 258

10Jun

On this podcast, we talk about the episodes of Corrie between the 5th and the 9th June. This week, David and Shona grow closer, but what will happen when the truth about her link to Clayton finally comes out? Meanwhile, Jenny's nose gets put out of joint when Eva hijacks her appointment with the jeweller, and the Barlows go ballistic when it's revealed who really pushed Ken. After Street Talk, we do a second character profile on Nick Tisley. After he left Weatherfield last week, we thought it would be interesting to compare our thoughts on him now with when we profiled him back in 2013 - and what a difference a brain injury makes! In The Kabin, we give a full run-down of the wins, losses and, of course, fashion highlights of the British Soap Awards, then we finish off the podcast with three bits of feedback.

Conversation Street Episode 257

3Jun

On our latest podcast, we delve into the episodes of Coronation Street broadcast between the 29th May and the 2nd June. What with it being the annual 9pm Britain's Got Talent week, we were seriously hyped up about this set of episodes before it started, and although it didn't quite meet our lofty expectations, there were still a lot of things to like. Chief among these, we felt, was Rob Mallard's electifying performance as Daniel, who this week sinks further into madness after revealing himself to be the Barlow Basher. Elsewhere on the Street, the penny finally drops for Shona that Bethany's Nathan is indeed *that* Nathan, but can she and David rescue her in time? Meanwhile, Nick's got that sinking feeling during a trip to the beach, and it's Bonne Anna-versaire to Ms Windass. On Tuesday, we also got to see the return of Daniel's mum Denise Osbourne, so as a quick catch up for the uninitiated, we thought we'd better do a character profile on her this week. This is followed by The Kabin and the sad news of Roy Barraclough's recent death, and the episode ends with a some listener feedback, with emails focusing on a variety of topics including bank holidays, calming British accents, and, yes - even some Corrie!

Conversation Street Episode 256

27May

It's the eve of the Britain's Got Talent finals week, and we can usually rely on Corrie to break out a few twists at this time, to set up the mega drama that's bound to unfold in the 9 o'clock specials. Well, this week we were certainly not disappointed, with our two favourite storylines of the moment both having amazing twists. First up on Monday, it's revealed that sleazy Neil is actually a police sergeant, a development that makes Nathan managing to evade the law so much in the past make much more sense. Not only that, but it opens up a brand new avenue for the story to head down in the future too - fantastic! The biggest reveal, though, of course, was that Ken's attacker was finally unveiled. Needless to say, we were INCREDIBLY  satisfied with how everything turned out there, and we cannot wait to see what's going to go down between Daniel and Ken next week! Aside from Street Talk, we've just got a bit of feedback to finish off the main podcast, but we do then head into spoiler territory at the end with a Kabin Extra, discussing this week's casting news, as well as sharing our thoughts and predictions for next week following Friday evening's thrilling trailer.

Conversation Street Episode 255 - We Stand Together

25May

In the wake of the terror attack in Manchester on Monday night, we thought it best to release a 20-minute standalone episode of the podcast to talk about what's happened. In particular, we focus on the life of Martyn Hett, the self-proclaimed Corrie Superfan, who was tragically killed in the attack. We'll be back at the weekend with our usual weekly episode.

Conversation Street Episode 254

20May

On our latest podcast, we review the episodes of Coronation Street shown in the UK between the 15th and the 19th May. Well, this was certainly a week that saw a massive improvement from start to finish! Though we weren't impressed by more whingy Nick and Leanne on Monday, the script sparkled on Wednesday thanks to some hilarious lines from the likes of Mary and Rosie. As for Friday, well with the Bethany and Jenny stories getting top billing (as well as more brilliant Rosie), you can't really go wrong there in our eyes! After Street Talk, we launch into a discussion inspired by Gina's recent return, where we consider which other long-lost family members would make an interesting comeback. That's followed by some happy news for Rob Mallard and Dan Brocklebank in The Kabin, before we round off the podcast with a bit of feedback.

Conversation Street Episode 253

13May

On our latest podcast, we talk all things Corrie in the week of the 8th to the 12th May. What a way to start the week that was! Tracy in court, Amy alone in the Peak District, Rob handing himself in... Our fingers were on fire as we were typing the notes for Monday's episode! Then on Wednesday, Ken squints and starts to remember the day he was attacked, and then... and then... Oh. More whingy Michelle and Leanne for most of Friday. Ho hum - at least we got a bit of Gina, another fab new addition to the Corrie character list, and the David and Shona stuff was quite good too. But come on Corrie! Just tell us who the phantom Barlow Basher is! After Street Talk, we tackle a Coronation Street legend in the character profile section, giving you a potted history of the late, great Betty Williams. This is followed by British Soap Awards talk in the Kabin, and another bumper listener feedback section to round things off.

Conversation Street Episode 252

6May

On our latest podcast, we chat about the episodes of Coronation Street shown in the UK between the 1st and the 5th May. This week, Rob's on the run in the Peak District, but when the going gets tough, will he take take Tracy and Amy with him, or will he disappear without a Trace? Back in Weatherfield, Bethany's still reeling from her ordeal with Neil, Rosie and Sophie confront Gina, and Maria and Aidan find themselves engaged in another round of Inter-Connor Congress... After Street Talk, we take your listener questions about our behind the scenes tour of the Corrie studios, revealing a few more bits and pieces we forgot mention in Episode 250. Next up, in the news section we give our reactions to the newly announced Corrie wartime novel by Maggie Sullivan, then finish off with more of your thoughts about the grooming storyline in the feedback section.
