Ken Barlow vs Lewis Archer

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the April 20 epiosde on CBC

Well it seems that Deirdre is going all 'Eartha Kitt' over the suave senior, Lewis Archer.  But why is Lady Barlow turning into Lady Gaga at the sight of the grey fox? Maybe I'm just thick (maybe? - ed) but from where I'm standing (outside the Tim Horton's in the rain - ed), the irresistible Lewis seems to be exactly like the resistible Ken.

They have the same hair style, they are the same vintage, they speak the same way. They have the same impeccable manners and pseudo-intellectual interests and, it seems, they have both been involved in the er.. world's oldest profession (supermarket trolley collector at Freshco's? - ed).  On top of that, the two former male escorts seem to get along like a house on fire. They were chatting up a storm over Deirdre's stuffed marrow (I beg your pardon! - ed).

So why does Deirdre find Lewis as sexually alluring as a musk-soaked Chippendale's dancer?

Who knows? Maybe it's a revenge affair? After all, she does keep referring to the canal. Or maybe Ken spends too much time at the library tending to his literary desires and not enough time tending to Deirdre's animal desires? Or maybe it has something to do with Audrey?  In any event, there seem to be some sparks flying and, all of a sudden, the male escort business seems to be one hot ticket.
