Review by:
David Brown

Traditionally, the marked lack of sporting prowess among Weatherfield’s menfolk has provided a rich source of humour. Think Stan Ogden in the wrestling ring or Dev Alahan on the golf course. But events take a dark turn in this episode when the fitness rivalry between Steve and Lloyd ends with the latter having a heart attack during the race they’ve been training for. Steve is obviously filled with guilt and recrimination, but is Lloyd’s girlfriend Andrea’s response entirely genuine?

Away from the hospital, there’s the usual male fecklessness on display as Dennis runs out of second chances and Tim gets a much-needed helping hand to get back with Sally.

About this programme

Lloyd collapses after confronting Steve about tripping him up during the 5km run, while Kal graciously lets Nick beat him, and Mary is proud to see Dev cross the finish line. Sophie worries about Sally when she hears from Sean that Tim has walked out on her, and Owen resolves to find out what is bothering Anna. Meanwhile, Dennis tries to get back into Rita's good books by looking for a job.
