Coronation Street: Metrolink Service Almost Back To Normal

by | 8th, December 2010

CORONATION Street is not fact and that tram crash, though portrayed in the Manchester Evening News (The Weatherfield Gazette has been published an as insert) and on ITN news as an actual event, is made-for-TV scripted drama. No-one died. Well, Alastair Stewart’s career withered on the vine. But no-one died.

Still, half-a-dozen of the institutionalised, needy and other journalists who wacht the show called the Metrolink to see if the trams were back to normal, what with massive accident and all.

Incidentally, the actor who piloted the helm into Molly Dobbs is called Tom Burroughs.

He lived! Molly died!

Anorak is collecting money for her funerals and a remembrance garden. Send all cash, luncheon vouchers and gold painted haemorrhoids to the usual address. It’s what Molly would have wanted…

Spotter: Karen
