CORO­NA­TION STREET

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - YOUR TV WEEK -

Ev­ery­one has their break­ing point, and it looks as though it’s fi­nally Ty­rone’s. On Mon­day, he is fu­ri­ous to learn that Kirsty failed to come clean to Dr Carter about her anger is­sues. To be hon­est, I’m not sure I’d be able to think straight in the pres­ence of Dr Carter, ei­ther. In fact, I’d have that stetho­scope lis­ten­ing to my chest in a heart­beat – even if I went to him about my knee.

Ty­rone is keen to sal­vage the re­la­tion­ship, though good­ness knows why. It’s not one that you can fix with a bit of stick­ing plas­ter. I’m not even sure that trac­tion would do the job.

On Fri­day, it ap­pears that Kirsty has gone for good, and Ty­rone loses his tem­per with Ch­es­ney when he dis­cov­ers Tina and Tommy talk­ing about him.

The wa s te of space that is Ryan is given an­other op­por­tu­nity to get off his back­side on Mond ay, when St eve or­gan­ises an acous­tic night for him at a pub (earplugs at the ready. Notice he didn’t ar­range it for the Rovers). Ryan, how­ever, ap­pears to have ul­te­rior mo­tives and later steals money from Michelle’s purse in or­der to fund his drug habit.

I sup­pose it’s too much to hope that he would use the money in­stead to buy a big­ger sofa for his per­ma­nently pros­trate body. The poor couch looks in need of med­i­cal at­ten­tion ev­ery time he throws him­self on it. An­other ex­cuse for a home visit from Dr Carter, I reckon. I adore Dr Carter, which is why any­one be­ing ill is good news. When Emily throws Tracy out af­ter she ruins Ernest’s danc­ing shoes, Tracy blames it on be­ing ill. But she’s cried wolf too of­ten and Ken re­fuses to take her in. On Fri­day, her con­di­tion wors­ens and she is di­ag­nosed with a nasty kid­ney in­fec­tion.

A re we go­ing to see the lo­cals queue­ing up to do­nate an or­gan? It’s un­likely any­one’s go­ing to help Tracy out, but Steve turns up with some com­fort­ing words. Yes, re­ally. Here we go again?
