Conversation Street Episode 313 - The Pat Phelan Show

19Jun

Builder. Father. Rapist. Husband. Kidnapper. Liar. Scam artist. Murderer. For the residents of Weatherfield, Pat Phelan has been many things. For us he's been one of the most compelling reasons to tune into Coronation Street these past five years, one of the show's most complex characters to ever grace the cobbles and, quite simply, the best villain Corrie has ever seen - and we DO love a good bad guy. In this special episode of the podcast, we talk about the life, the lies and the legacy of the loathesome yet loveable Liverpudlian lawbreaker. To kick things off, we're thrilled to be joined by the man behind the monster, Connor McIntyre, for an exclusive interview, in which he offers his final reflections on his time on the Street and answers some of your listener questions. We then take a trip back in time to where it all began and play some podcast clips from the time of Pat's first episodes before chatting about how his character has changed since then. This is followed by our final thoughts about his exit week, now we've had a bit of time to let the dust settle. Up next, we run down our Top 10 Pat Phelan scenes ever - be sure to email in and let us know how much you all disagree! - before discussing the big question: is Pat truly Corrie's greatest ever villain? Towards the end of the episode, we tackle some of the Phelan detractors' biggest criticisms of the character, before rounding things off with a short quiz. Enjoy!
