David: (On his input into the Coronation Street character, Roy Cropper) It is difficult to say how much input I have in the development of Roy's character. The main meat of the character obviously comes with the scripts, I guess the way I then do it might give the writers other ideas. The character was initially flown to do just six episodes so there is clearly an element of seeing how it turns out, nobody is quite sure until the show is broadcast and various reactions are gathered. It's an elongated process where things are constantly reviewed.
