CORO­NA­TION STREET

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SOAP WATCH -

It’s a thin line be­tween grief and seem­ing to for­get what you want to say, as Dev pro proved this week. Never one to scrimp on his vow­els, his stac­cato de­liv­ery turned eac each mono­logue into a per­for­mance on a par with Ham­let upon dis­cov­er­ing that his un un­cle With mur­dered his whin­ing his fa­ther. ap­par­ently at an end on W Wed­nes­day, Dev wishes Karl and Stella good goo luck for the fu­ture, in the light of Stella’s Stel shock an­nounce­ment on Mon­day (‘I want w dull, pre­dictable,’ she said this week wee – she had that in Karl, be­fore he turned turn killer). Now, maybe, Dev can get back to trad­ing in the shop; with roughly half a dozen items a month be­ing sold, he’s never go­ing to make gro­cer of the year.

David’s in­ner psy­cho threat­ens to raise its ugly head again on Mon­day, af­ter he hears Kylie and Gail dis­cussing the pos­si­bil­ity that the baby might not be his. Nurs­ing his bro­ken heart on Wed­nes­day at the edge of a cliff, is he about to jump? No, that would be too easy. In­stead, on Fri­day, he heads to Nick’s flat to trash it with a sledge­ham­mer (left) and, later, he pock­ets a key to the new lock. This is clearly just the be­gin­ning.

The fall­out from Tina’s de­ci­sion to keep the baby was pretty ugly. Anna’s re­sponse was ‘ She’s an ’ard faced cow’, while Owen’s was ‘I’ll make us all a brew’. But is Tina about to change her mind? On Fri­day, she is told the baby is strong enough to be breast-fed, but when she strug­gles to feed him, she won­ders if she is do­ing the right thing, and it is up to Tommy to re­as­sure her. Oh, come on, Tommy, make your mind up. Anna’s rage reaches boil­ing point when she slaps Tina’s face. That’s brave – risk­ing con­tact with those fer­ris-wheel ear­rings.
