Of course I wouldn’t show the massacre. We’d see a grim faced Stephen start to walk over to wherever he commits the crime. Screen fades to back. We pick up a month later and find out that he gunned down Sean, Hope, Gary, Kirk, Brian and Ed. And we find out Stephen finally turned the gun on himself.

And why would she be afraid of going to jail for knocking down podgy Paul? She would rightly claim she wasn't in her right mind and was not legally responsible. And porky turning down a £15k settlement so he can get more is another ridiculous plot point, he'd have torn Peter's hand off.

Agreed. We've seen the fill spectrum of Carla's vulnerability. She's best when she's leading from the front so I hope this comes back.

I'm not in the age group that would be invested in Paula Wilcox, but I get there is one.

Overall, I worry they're investing in archetypes via more recent joiners rather than mining the richness of the long-term characters, and there's some intimacy lost in that. Missing when Liz and Deirdre were around, for sure.

R115, I think Anna could have really blossomed if she there were better circumstances given to her. She was a good, growing presence in Weatherfield and I was sorry to see the sensationalism of Phelan storyline kind of kill any hopes of a long tenure. She also had two husbands who were terrible co-stars and deserved to be offloaded, which I think took the wind out of her sails. It was justtoo much. I wonder what could have been if she had done better. Even with so many people connected to Anna gone, she's still got some deep connections with Roy, Carla, and Gary...and with the viewers because of her involvement in Hayley's death.

Kevin and Abbeh are still together. He just got back from a long stint off under the guise of his Dad passing away in Germany.

Lol Maya didn't blow up? I remember being surprised she was still alive (and sectioned) as the same crash had killed Don years (I was a naive teenager!)

Deirdre and Dev made sense as a one time fuck. Deirdre had a crush on him and he was alone and horny. It happened on Christmas Day of all times and led to Ken overturning the dinner table in a rage!

R159 i don't think he said he'd never cheat on her, more like I thought we'd come to trust each other by now. Of course his affair with Martha years later made Dev poking Deirdre in the whiskers look like a minor blip in their marriage.

Interestingly I recently read that they were going to be reunited much earlier in the 90s but Anne had to leave the show for cancer treatment. In the interim they needed to find a storyline for Bill and came up with the relationship with Denise (and Daniel's conception). If things had gone to plan we might also have had no Samir and John Lyndsay!

I really like learning about scrapped storylines, sad as that sounds!

by Anonymousreply 160July 26, 2023 11:50 AM

R160 - speaking of scrapped Deirdre-related storylines, I remember the papers reporting in the mid-00s that Deirdre was going to have a one-night-stand with a younger man. He would then start blackmailing her for thousands of pounds, threatening to tell Ken. In the end, there was a scene where Deirdre drunkenly kissed a young man in the Rovers, but that was it. It sounded like quite a dark storyline for that era, so I wonder if that's why they dropped it.

Supposedly Julie Goodyear just couldn't cope with the modern-day schedule. In her day there was only about an hour of Corrie a week and the cast were able to rehearse and do poncey shit like that. Nowadays, it's turn up, run-through for blocking then film - and don't dare to need any retakes.

Archie Shuttleworth was one of Audrey's few allies when Richard made everyone think she was losing her mind back in 2002. He and she also had a good friendship though I think he may have wanted to give her a poke in the whiskers, which she refused.

He also left her the best part of £100k in his will, even though I don't think they'd seen each other for years. It was a useful plot device to give Audrey money for Nick & David to steal.
