    Ah yes. I know why the factory fell down. Ranas Mum took one of the planks of wood to use in her performance this evening.

    It's always great to see an old Corrie character coming back, but why does he look and behave really suspicious?

    Rana's mum is the WORST actress I have ever seen in my life. She is so wooden. Not even a tear shed for her child. I don't know if she has been written to be completely devoid of emotion but she is just dreadful, it's unbelievable that she wouldn't break down over the death of her daughter.

    Gary and Sarah have no money.

    We know this because they are sleeping on David's floor
    We know this because Gary is struggling to get work
    We know this because Gary coppered up to buy two coffees in Roy's Rolls


    So WTF are they spending money in a cafe when they can have a perfect cuppa in the house just moments away from the cafe.


    Oh yeah, so they could discuss bribery and breaking the law in a public place.

    I think that's exactly what they are trying to show. She has no emotions regarding her daughter and everything has been about her faith. This woman tried to kidnap Rana and exile her to Pakistan. She's really hard faced and I think that's playing to the script.

    Continuation of my earlier post.

    ..1.. Michelle and Rob now hate each other. Awful storyline.

    ..2.. I understand what Sally sees in Tim but cannot for the life of me understand his attraction to her

    ..3.. Chesney needs to dump Gemma. NEEDS TO.

    Gemma is too silly for words and an insult to the viewers.

    Alison King again was superb, you can feel her pain. Beth needs a good slap. If I were Carla I would let the lot of them be unemployed. It is what they deserve.

    I have to agree! Gemma is hideous.

    Michelle as usual is at the centre of every drama. I wish she would just go and take Leanne with her.

    Carla is the one character who for me is worthy of watching, no matter what, she’s in just about the right amount of storylines unlike Michelle, you can see Alison King puts a lot of effort into her role without her coming across as over acting.

    I just wish the Corrie bosses would take her into a different direction, no to and fro between Nick and Peter (while being the love rival for both men with Leanne!) give her a worthy love interest, throw in a pregnancy or perhaps have her go into fostering, I can see her being a good foster mother and I’d like to see a maternal Carla, one who firecely defends her kids.

    I’d also remove her from the Connor clan for a bit (which looks like it’s going to happen) Carla works much better when she’s her on her own.

    Carla is my favourite character maybe have a spin off called Carlanation Street ;-) ;-) :-D

    Finally, a new family are moving into the street. It must be 5 years since the Nazir family moved in and there is only two of them left.



    Meet the Bailey family :jolly:

    I did like how Michelle was trying to be supportive to Carla even though she thinks she was wrong over the factory. Not a Fan of Kim Kym Marsh but she acted that very well.

    You can see why Kate Oates producer at the time wanted Carla back. I would go as far as to say Alison King is the best thing to come out of the Street since Pat Phoenix.

    I'm so fed up with this character that I can't help but feeling nothing but bitterness towards. I'm going to assume that she will return because I doubt she will find much work elsewhere and maybe, just maybe I might start to like her a bit more after a break - a very long break mind you.

    I also need a break from the whole Rana/factory collapse story and give Gary/Rick, Gemma/Chesney a break too. Let's see more focus on Ali/Ryan, Steve/Tracy, and throw in some great stuff with Evelyn, Emma and Moira too.

    The new family can't come quick enough.
