SALLY’S TROLL (AND I DON’T MEAN TIM)
In recent years the unlikely pairing of Sally and Tim has made for some of Corrie’s best comic scenes, and some of the most tender because brash Tim always supports his wife.
When Sally gets a call from the hospital, telling her the cancer has returned, he’s there for her (right), but she soon discovers the call was a prank. Tim insists she delete her online accounts, but who has it in for her and why?
Cathy and Brian could be another great pairing, but after a trip to the theatre, will the relationship go further? I suspect it depends on the play. The Suppliant Women is on at Manchester’s Royal Exchange this week, an Aeschylus play (this doesn’t bode well) about 50 women fleeing forced marriages. Let’s hope Mamma Mia! is on somewhere.
Peter’s life is in tatters (again), but will Toyah believe that he hasn’t been unfaithful or fallen off the wagon? You wouldn’t blame him for the latter, given the stress among the Barlows – not least over the fact that Phelan still hasn’t finished Ken’s kitchen (which no one noticed until this week). This Dynasty for the underprivileged has it all. Well, all of the drama and none of the money.
