CORONA­TION STREET

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

The character of Mary has al­ways had sin­is­ter un­der­tones, and the snap­shots of her past are con­stant re­minders that all may not be as it seems. Her fix­at­ing on men – Nor­ris, Roy, and now Dev – is hi­lar­i­ous, but also a bit creepy, and she ups the ante when com­pet­ing with Julie for Dev’s at­ten­tion (be­low). She can­not con­tain her jeal­ousy when Nor­ris and Rita gossip about a pos­si­ble ro­mance be­tween Julie and Dev. At least it gives Dev some­thing to do other than ex­er­cise his vow­els, although in his at­tempts to be kind to both women I sus­pect the names Joooooleeeee and Maaaaaireeeee will soon be drop­ping from his lips.

I’m not con­vinced by Kylie’s sud­den break­down. I know Max can be a hand­ful some­times, but surely it’s right down on the emo­tional Richter scale com­pared to a hus­band who’s tried to kill his mother and brother. She downs the last of Max’s pills be­fore b be­ing caught out by David, and later she de­cides to track down Max’s fa­ther to try t to dis­cover the root of her son’s pro prob­lems. Hell-ooooo! His mum’s ma mar­ried to a psy­cho. That should do it.

She’s drawn back into her old life wi with Callum, a dan­ger­ous but sexy ki kind of guy, but feels guilty when sh she re­turns home to find that David ha has pre­pared her a spe­cial meal. W When David ap­pears to be the no nor­mal one in the fam­ily, you kn know you’re re­ally in trou­ble.
