CORO­NA­TION STREET

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

It’s a stroke of ge­nius to have moved Tracy in with Emily and Nor­ris, and a more un­likely – and com­i­cal – three­some it would be hard to find. ‘Shall we have a bis­cuit, Tracy?’ said Emily on Mon­day, in a rash mo­ment of pre-bed­time ex­cite­ment. ‘Oh, go on,’ said Tracy. ‘Let’s go wild.’

Nor­ris re­mains un­happy about the ar­range­ment, and on Fri­day, when he com­plains about Tracy’s lack of rent, she of­fers to clean the house, in­clud­ing his bed­room. His re­sponse is to pad­lock it, but when he is tak­ing a nap, Tracy gets her re­venge by lock­ing him in and turn­ing up the TV to drown his cries to be res­cued. He doesn’t have much luck with psy­cho women. It’s not that long ago that Mary kid­napped him; now, he has to con­tend with a con­victed mur­derer. It’s hi­lar­i­ous.

It’s a darn sight more amus­ing than Mon­day’s sto­ry­line that sees Ryan of­fer­ing Kylie some coke – and it’s not the cola va­ri­ety. Michelle re­sorts to des­per­ate mea­sures to make him see sense, but if his half­dressed new look is any­thing to go by, it seems that her son has lit­er­ally sold the shirt off his back to fi­nance his drug ad­dic­tion.

Stella, Eva and Leanne this week joined forces to au­di­tion for the three witches of Mac­beth, in the light of Karl’s adul­tery, prompt­ing Leanne to say: ‘ You’re all the same.’ Er, would that be the same Leanne who cheated on Peter with Nick? Karl’s at­tempt to win Stella back on Mon­day fails, when she in­sists that he sign over the pub and mort­gage to her. On Thurs­day, Su­nita en­cour­ages him to fight it, but is less than happy when Stella tells her that she has in­her­ited Karl’s debts, along with him. How has he man­aged to run up so much debt when the bookie’s is al­ways closed? And how does he find the time, given he is moonl ight i ng in Tag­gart too?
