Of course they do - I'm not sure what you are on about here though, it doesn't relate to anything you quoted. No one is saying he has to mention it in every episode and again you're missing the point. It was used as a plot device and had nothing to do with character-driven storytelling. He doesn't need to mention it, but it would be nice if Corrie actually acknowledges this because people live with Epilepsy every day, well apart from David. So what you're saying is you can not answer my question on this? What does this have to do with the differences between the way Corrie was written and how its written today? Of course there will always be stories like this, but again you're missing the point. Today's Corrie cannot do a wedding without having something go wrong. I'm going to ask you again, when did Corrie last have a wedding like the one with Kevin and Sally? We know that because the writers and (it seems) the actress has forgotten about her sister's death. Howe is it stupid to suggest this? If Corrie wants me to believe that a character just lost a sister, then I want to see some character-driven story to acknowledge this, otherwise, the whole thing was plot driven to bring back another child actor into the show. You don't look very far then because there's also lots of praise for Corrie here too. There are six episodes a week, one would have to be totally unresponsive to watch the show and not comment on it. Let me make it more understandable to you. I am not saying 80s Corrie was without fault, far from it actually. I'm often finding mistakes with the show, however, the characters and the writing is so great that I overlook its flaws.
