Coronation Street Catch Up: the Mr. Biscuits edition

your one stop update on what happened last week on Canada's Coronation Street...

I'm no horse therapist, but even I can see that Tim's er.. attachment to Tiny is a little, as we say in equine psychiatry, "unstable". And, as for Sally dressing up in a "50 Shades of Hay" motif, well the less said, the better.

But the key point is that Sally got rid of Tiny (which brought back traumatic memories of Tim's beloved dog, Mr. Biscuits - don't ask). Sally then got on her horse and retrieved the horse when she discovered Tim's PTSD (Post Tiny Distress Syndrome).

Onward to the new family on the Street. Meet the Baileys, probably the first nuclear family to move in since the arrival of the Macdonalds.

Nice couple and a couple of nice lads, one was involved in that altercation with Steve in the taxi and the other tries it on with Michelle.

All this while renovations cause a world of inconvenience for Ken not to mention an accidental hole in the wall through which Mrs. Bailey (Aggie) spies Kenneth in his "natural" habitat (i.e. sans kimono). Claudia then enters the fray and ratchets up the tension.

Speaking of Michelle, she asks Robert to get back together. Robert agrees but then has to break off his relationship with Vicki who is, it seems, pregnant.

Slick lawyer/ladies man Adam has ditched Nick as a client so he can focus his er.. attention on Sarah. A lot of attention. Not only does Adam help Sarah with her management of Underworld but he arranges for a lusty legover at a swanky hotel. But, oh oh, Gary is tracking them down to warn Sarah about loan shark Rick who is out there and on the prowl.

Leanne uses David's phone to lure Natalie out of hiding. After some discussion, Natalie leaves the country so cannot be a witness for David or point the finger at Nick.

Oh, and it seems that Roy's mother had an affair. So the mystery of the engraved ring is solved.

And now for a few lines from the week that was.

Sally to Tim:
"How can you tell when a horse is depressed?"
(he seems un-stable?)

Evelyn re: Tracy:
"She has all the appeal of a tramp's handshake"
(and none of the charm)

Michael makes a t-shirt to publicize his new app:
"Have you got the clap?"
(I hope not)

Tim's recounts his erotic equine dream to Sally:
"I was bare chested, his mane was flapping"
(Was Stormy Daniels involved?)

Sally to Tim:
"Are you in love with a horse?"

Well, fellow Street Savants, so ends another week. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend. Happy Canada Day (although no Corrie on Monday)!

  1. I wonder who decided to cover the hole in the wall with clear, see-through plastic?
