Owing to a busy life, I had 39 (yes, 39) episodes of Corrie recorded and finally sat down to watch some of them the other day. Amazing what trends you notice when seeing so many episodes one after another. In every single episode and in half of the scenes, the people are holding mugs of tea - it's as though they've lost the plot and can only say their lines with a cup in their hands. The 'put the kettle on' phrase is used hundreds of times and is becoming exceedingly irritating. You may have missed this little bit of trivia, but watch next time, and I'll bet you'll see it cropping up. I know it's no big thing, but can't they think of another 'prop'. Poor script writing again.
I do so agree with the comment from a viewer about Maddie - her character drives ME mad and the whining voice of Sophie is just so irritating.
Wish we could see more of Mary and Norris in the story lines - they're both brilliant!
