How soon before Rovers is sex filled drug den?
A TERRIBLE crime took place on Monday’s Coronation Street.
Not the murder of Frank Foster. Besides, we all KNOW it was Peter Barlow because Frank raped his missus and stole her business, and Peter was drunkenly threatening to do him in.
It is an open and shut case – unless, of course, the writers were deliberately misleading us in order to increase the surprise when the real culprit turns out to be someone else entirely, probably the person we least suspect. But that would never happen in a soap, would it?
Anyway, the real crime was Karl’s decision to install a massive, blaring telly in the Rovers.
“Annie Walker will be spinning in her grave,” said Rita. Many pub traditionalists will agree.
“I never thought I would see the day this place would turn into a clone of every pub in Manchester,” she added.
Actually, that may not be so bad. The only other pub in Manchester I know is The Jockey, from Shameless.
It might liven things up to see Norris sorting coke while rattling Emily Bishop in the bogs, and Ken Barlow ordering “a pint and an E please, luv”.
As for Betty’s hot pot, they won’t know whether to eat it or smoke it.
