Trivia

In 2011, Philip Lowrie broke the world record for the longest gap between appearances in the same television show, having regularly appeared as Dennis Tanner from the first episode in 1960, through to June 1968, before returning to the part in May 2011. In doing so (beating one-time co-star Kenneth Cope, who was absent from the role of Jed Stone for forty-two years between 1966 and 2008) he was awarded with an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records.

THE CORONATION STREET AFTER HOURS SPECIAL (1999)

STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead *Avoid At All Costs

Excuse me,here I'm really going to complain,because I'm really fed up,as a really dedicated Coronation Street fan of sometime ,of being treated with this sort of pathetic drivel for entertainment.There was not a single redeaming feature about this unspeakable travesty,everyone and everything involved in it made me want to cry out loud even more.The acting was pathetic,the story was woeful and the execution and pace was utterly diabolical.

The standard of regular Coranation Street at the moment is pretty dire,but thats not to say I think anymore of this complete and utter garbage.It's on retail in UK video stores,and I would'nt urge you to spend one penny on it,whatever you do.*
