If you thought Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) was going to sober up in prison, then think again. With fellow lag Jim McDonald (Charles Lawson) keeping him supplied with alcohol, it’s no surprise that Peter takes more than a sip of dutch courage before a visit from Leanne (Jane Danson) and son Simon (Alex Bain).
