On this week's podcast, we cover the goings on in Weatherfield between the 3rd and the 7th February, which of course culminated in Friday's very special 10,000th episode. There was nostalgia aplenty as a stellar cast of characters boarded the party bus for a trip to Blackpool to scatter Dennis Tanner's ashes, but in true Corrie fashion, not everything went quite to plan... Also this week, there's more awkwardness for Bethany and Daniel, Nina sleeps rough, and a magic trick gone wrong leaves Yasmeen's body in tact but her soul crushed. After Street Talk, we keep that nostalgia meter ramped right up as we delve into the a discussion of Corrie's first seven episodes, broadcast in December of 1960. We've recently been devouring our way through a Corrie 60s box set, and in this feature, we share our first thoughts on where it all started. That's followed by some interesting teases from Iain Macleod about Corrie's upcoming diamond anniverary celebrations in The Kabin, and in the feedback section, we hear some listeners' reactions to recent developments in the coercive control story, and discuss options for a suitably tortuous punishment for Geoff.
