Trivia

The first time Coronation Street was filmed in HD was for the special 'Siege Week', aired in May and June 2010. The story followed villain Tony Gordon (Gray O'Brien)'s escape from prison to kidnap his ex-wife Carla Connor ('Alison King'), who is bound and gagged in her Underworld factory with Hayley Cropper (Julie Hesmondhalgh). King (I)' filmed the majority of the scenes of the 'Siege Week' tied up on a chair with her mouth gagged, taped shut with duct tape. Following the conclusion of 'Siege Week', the show was filmed from then on in HD. See more »

Quotes

[Sally hands Kevin a leaflet]
Kevin Webster: "Websters' Auto Centre"?
Sally Seddon: Yeah, re-branding they call it. All the big firms are doing it. It's all about image these days. Now, the thing about flyers is it's all about the artwork and the larger the print run, the cheaper they are. You can claim it back on tax as an employment expense. I've had 10,000 run.
Kevin Webster: Sal! We are working flat out to try and get work done and you're wasting money!

great soap
20 December 2009 | by (manchester england) – See all my reviews

I like Coronation street I have watched it since I was five back in 1979 and really like it, and its been going nearly 50 years its a shame they never get best soap anymore.. as its the longest running soap, and they seem to get knocked out of the running in the national TV awards, its about time they changed that as eastenders who have not been going near as long seem to win every time.. so it would be nice for coronation street to be best, soap or longest running to win for a change..the soap has had good story lines in the past and present and they put some humour into it as well not like some other soaps I could mention, and do not keep brining back more and more old characters as well..
