Coronation Street

Episode 8460

Review by:

There are only so many times that you can put Peter Barlow on a life-support machine and call it a cliffhanger. Honestly, Casualty could get a month’s worth of episodes out of that man’s medical history. Leanne, of course, once married him when she thought he might die from his tram-crash injuries. Now we’ve got Carla doubling back from the airport when Peter is rushed into intensive care following his prison booze bender.

Why all these women bother is beyond me: he’s obviously got more lives than the cat in the opening titles and will no doubt emerge unscathed, only to flatline again in a couple of years’ time.

About this programme

Carla is taken aback when she hears that Peter is critically ill in hospital and feels torn when Ken calls in to the factory and begs her to visit him. Kylie is desperate to make a good impression at Max's psychiatric assessment, while Fiz confronts Tony, Jason and Todd and asks them to increase their offer as £1,000 compensation isn't enough to tide her and Tyrone over. Steph admits she finds the idea of her brother and her best friend together too weird. Will Luke and Katy call time on their fling?
