Trivia

In 2010 the plot demanded that male escort Lewis Archer's advert appeared in "The Lady" magazine. The publication actually placed this mock-up in a genuine issue - and received numerous complaints from aggrieved readers over the 'incorrect' (i.e. fictitious) contact details. See more »

Goofs

The night before Steve and Karen's wedding after Steve decides to let his mum invite Ken and Deidre, she walks out the front door, straight past the Barlows. Then, after they finish their dialog about Tracy, she comes out of the toilet. See more »

Can't miss it
23 May 2004 | by (North Bay, Ontario Canada) – See all my reviews

My mother was Scottish and my dad was British, so I was raised on watching Coronation Street. For the last 35 years (at least) not a week has gone by with catching up at the Rover's return. Unfortunately, here in Canada we seem to be quite behind the times, we are at the stage where Peter is revealed as a bigamist, Martin admits to the affair with Katie etc...etc... But I will continue to watch C.S.loyally. I'm addicted, and so is my wife of 10 years. She wasn't to fussy at the beginning but after watching now, it would be instant death if I didn't get her up at 8 a.m. for our 2 hour Sunday constitutional.

Our next trip to England we hope maybe for a tour of the set. It would be the icing on the cake, if I could surprise her with this holiday treat. Thanks for allowing me this moment to reflect on the great time we've had watching and will continue to watch our favorite show
