Coronation Street

Episode 8425

Radio Times
Review by:
David Brown

From now on, it looks like we’re going to be spared the sight of a drunken Peter Barlow unsuccessfully trying to navigate the pavement, hip flask in hand, bomber jacket askew and greasy hair blowing in the wind. Because tonight – in full view of his neighbours, of course – he gets arrested on suspicion of Tina’s murder.

Now, as we know, the soap police find it impossible to spot a guilty party. If Hannibal Lector and General Zod moved onto Coronation Street, the cops would still waste their time giving Emily Bishop the third degree. So it’s little wonder that killer Rob is breathing a huge sigh of relief.

About this programme

Rob starts arguing with Peter in the street as he desperately tries to point the finger of suspicion at him, while Maria and Marcus agree to part as friends as he leaves Weatherfield. Sophie is concerned when Maddie returns from Devon clearly upset about something, Todd starts working for Tony and Jason, and Lloyd suggests to Andrea it's time she moved in with him.
