CORONA­TION STREET

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

Please, somebody teach Lloyd how to eat. Mouth open, chomp­ing at the bit like a horse on the last stretch at Ain­tree – I had to hit the mute but­ton when he dived into that Scotch egg this week. Eileen seemed as ir­ri­tated as I was.

If you thought Lloyd and An­drea had taken the show to new depths of bore­dom, wait un­til you see Gary and Alya start flirt­ing (be­low) while work­ing on re­fur­bish­ing the butcher butcher’ss shop. I haven haven’tt seen any­one buy so much as a pork chop there since Fred El­liott died, so quite why this mon­stros­ity has now landed is any­body’s guess. Oh, yes, it’s to give Weather­field’s new­est bores, the Nazirs, some­thing to do, turn­ing the place into a com­mu­nity cen­tre.

Jonathan Har­vey’s hi­lar­i­ous episode last Wed­nes­day pushed the Mary/Julie/Dev love tri­an­gle cen­tre stage – and the three­some light­ened the week, do­ing what the Street does best. And what hap­pens next week? Go Gone. In­stead, we have Kylie, beg­ging for sp speed. How about the show speeds through thi this sto­ry­line pronto? Please.

There are ten­sions among the Bar­lows wh when Deirdre is feel­ing the strain as Ken dr drones on about Peter’s forth­com­ing trial. Sh She loses it com­pletely when Peter calls, ask ask­ing to speak to Carla, who is there for din din­ner. Ken sug­gests that Deirdre visit her fri friend for a break. She should jump at it. Si Since he re­turned from Canada, Ken’s about as ex­cit­ing as a drugged stoat. Noth­ing new in that, though.
