Coronation Street

Coronation Street

Episode 8430



Where has the humour on Corrie gone? Oh for the days when the Street’s matriarchs would prop up the bar of the Rovers Return and pithily discuss fellas while their feckless menfolk connived in the corners. At the moment it’s all bankruptcies, dour relationship bust-ups and sweating murderers. Can’t we have a few finely crafted put-downs to lighten the load?

It seems not, because here a cash-strapped Owen is summoned to court and a banged-up Peter Barlow is depressed because he’s heard nothing from his dad. Excuse me while I dig out some old episodes featuring Eddie Yeats and Stan Ogden to give me a much-needed laugh.


Neil catches Steve comforting Andrea and wrongly assumes he is the `other man' she is leaving him for, while Deirdre admits to Tracy she hasn't told Ken about Peter's arrest. Owen receives a summons for a bankruptcy hearing, but Anna promises him they'll get through it together, and Roy learns that Yasmeen is the chief librarian as he sets up a petition to protest against the library's closure. Meanwhile, Deirdre unearths a valuable military medal belonging to Uncle Albert.
