I've been watching the old Corries on ITV3 - not sure which year, but Rita is dating Alan Bradley, Bett Lynch is landlady of the Rovers. There is so much more humour in them, so many more real characters. Now it's all doom and gloom. Even Rita, Norris and Mary are given 'serious' story lines. It used to be simple escapism, now it's trying to be 'gritty' like Eastenders - but that was never the point of it. As for the Billy/Todd/Summer saga - words fail me.

Which characters would you like to see in Phelan's cellar? I for one would love to see Anna down there...

Chesney in hospital and that irritating child Summer in hospital. Each picked up on coronation street in separate ambulances as the same time. Then turn over to EastEnders, Jayne and Stacey both in hospital. I fail to understand how Max is allowed to wander in and out as he pleases.

Two of the current storylines are very similar to those in River City from about three years ago. Did one of the Corrie scriptwriters, used to write for that show ?
