CORONA­TION STREET

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SEVEN DAYS -

Why does no­body in Weather­field ever have any wine in the house? Eileen sug­gested to Sean this week that they go to Dev’s, buy a bot­tle and watch TV. Given that Dev’s Shi­raz is £8 a bot­tle, you can’t help won­der­ing why peo­ple don’t just buy their wine when they visit the su­per­mar­ket. Any­way, just the one bot­tle? I’d need a vine­yard to get me through a night with Sean.

Al­co­hol is back on the agenda on Wed­nes­day when Peter re­turns to drink­ing. This is good news for Dev (whose high-pitched squeak gets more like Fam­ily Guy’s Stewie by the day), but not for Carla, who is fu­ri­ous to find him drunk.

On Thurs­day, he sends her pack­ing – lit­er­ally – and drunk­enly tries to re-kin­dle his re­la­tion­ship with Leanne. Or maybe he’s just af­ter the keys to the Bistro’s wine cel­lar.

The show has come up with an­other bril­liant pair­ing as Roy and Mary in­dulge their love of chess, and on Mon­day Hay­ley is put out when Roy snubs her dance class to play chess. He also ig­nored the fact that Hay­ley passed her bronze ball­room danc­ing medal on Mon­day. Much to Mary’s cha­grin, she part­nered Nor­ris, but with Mary seem­ingly trans­fer­ring her af­fec­tions to Roy, there is much hi­lar­ity ahead with th­ese four sub­lime char­ac­ters.

The big ques­tion on Mon­day is where Tracy is go­ing to live. When Ken re­fuses to have her back, it’s Emily to the res­cue. Tracy over­hears Nor­ris ex­press­ing his un­ease about hav­ing a con­victed mur­derer in the house (lock away those large or­na­ments, Emily) and she sets about wind­ing him up.

And for those of you who en­tered into the spirit of last Sunday’s chal­lenge to guess how many times Tracy would say Steve’s name this week, the an­swer was 20 – al­most the 23 I pre­dicted. Very proud of my­self.
