Conversation Street

An unofficial podcast for the long-running British soap, Coronation Street.

COVID-19 Update - Episode 421

June 5th, 2020

For our bonus podcast this week, which we're releasing early as it was just sitting there ready to go (and also the nature of the subject matter means it could well go out of date at any time!), we're chatting about Corrie's back to work plans.

With lockdown measures easing and the number of episodes recorded up to March getting smaller and smaller, it's back to the cobbles for the cast and crew next week - but it's far from business as usual. There'll be social distancing, takeaways from the Rovers and episodes written specifically to fit three in a week - it's still going to be a while until the show goes back to normal, but it's a positive start!

In this episode, we muse over a few ideas for how the gap between old and new episodes maybe bridged, ponder how more vulnerable cast members could still be included, and consider what lessons the higher ups at Corrie might have taken away after overcoming one of the show's biggest ever hurdles.
