Trivia

Episode 4946, broadcast on Friday, December 8, 2000, was a special double-length 40th anniversary one. It followed a rescreening of the first edition, and was similarly transmitted live. As noted above, it incorporated a cameo (seen on a television) by the Prince of Wales, who was purportedly visiting Weatherfield. Ten years later, sixty-five actors and a three hundred-strong crew produced the hour-long 50th anniversary edition on December 9, 2010 (episode 7487), which again went out live, to an audience of fourteen million viewers.

Dull as ditchwater
17 April 2017 | by (Essex) – See all my reviews

This ITV soap opera is one of the most boring shows on British television. I've no idea why it has very high viewing figures - millions of people watch it.

None of the characters are interesting or likable, so I don't understand how anyone can find this miserable show in the slightest bit entertaining.
