    There's been some terrible writing this week. Neil, a corrupt copper says to Craig "Bethany told you I had been to some of Nathan's parties" sure, yeah that did happen, but I doubt a corrupt cop would easily give out that information, before he knew what Craig actually knew.

    Aidan - Why can't he just say to Eva, "there's no more money in the pot", it's a really easy thing to say, but no he has to stand there like a lame duck pulling faces as he tries to think of something to say.


    Just what is going on with Yasmeen and her 'call in centre'? She's not qualified to do start something like this - is she?

    Also why are they making Liz to be completely stupid in her job? She must have something about her if she was able to run a pub.


    I wish they would write it more naturally, why does David have to see Shona as soon as she came back to the street? Why do characters have to keep bumping into each other on the street when it suits?

    I laughed at Gemma's tee-shirt - Kylie dead but not forgot

    I found the Eva/Adam story ridiculous...first off, who gets tipsy after 2 sips of wine? Who gives up wine to put the kettle on?! Very contrived in the buildup to Adam arriving.

    Then Adam knows straight away that Eva isn't pregnant because of the wine glasses. Ok pregnant women for the most part don't drink but a couple of sips isn't usually enough to tip someone off that the woman isn't pregnant.

    Then he meets Eva in the ginnell and rather than just say he will team up with her, Eva tells more lies so he won't say anything. So there isn't really any need for the wine scene - it could have been wrapped up the first time. This leads to him meeting her again later on to say what could have been said the first time. For the first time in ages I thought this is really poor writing in Corrie.

    Also not buying the lack of evidence against Neil and that Bethany and Shonas statements haven't been enough. Why is it taking Lara to come forward before other girls might?? Again dragging it out.

    I can't remember, did you watch the THREE GIRLS drama about the Rochdale sex ring? that took about 8 years to come out.

    Not that I have seen last night's episodes yet, so I could be talking crap again...:D

    Sarah isn't a very good mother (or even friend) to Bethany, is she?

    She seems quite distraught at what her daughter has endured during this grooming story and also hellbent on trying to find someone who would help to convict Nathan.

    But where she is failing miserably is her support to Bethany. Nearly every scene we see with Bethany she is alone and then other characters (Mary, Craig, Gemma) appear to give hope and support. I would have thought any loving parent wouldn't let their child out of their sight if they had suffered like Bethany has. Why isn't Sarah by Bethany's side?

    I got the impression Nicola was a strong driven character. She knows what she wants and she deals with it. So when she said to Pat that she didn't want any more contact with him, why did she go to the rovers for at least 6 hours? I say six hours, it was pitch black outside and she saw Pat while he was at work, so I'm assuming that was 4pm or before.

    I like Brian because he's a nuisance to everyone, but this story as a litter enforcer really is hitting the bottom of a barrel.

    I really wish Craig would stop pestering Bethany. He should concentrate on directing the traffic or whatever he's supposed to be doing.

    the Eva / Adam / Aidan / pretend im pregnant/rip him off storyline is just pathetic wish they would write Eva out, she is just annoying

    as is the whole Roy and Brian / litter lout/ fine story

    David neilson is Corries best actor by a mile and this is the best they can do??? Really

    WHO CARES!!

    PS

    Wouldnt pay that for a sandwich, but im sure half the street on minimum wage will, and on a daily basis, and be wearing a different outfit in every scene
    Just like real life NOT
