Derek is dead. Popped his clogs, gone to sell paper-clips to
the angels. Poor bloke, what an undignified ending. To the strains
of "Tit willow, tit willow" old Derek has a heart attack
after a fit of road rage in the country. We all knew it was coming,
except it seems for poor Mavis who was in the middle of her birthday
soiree with a houseful of guests waiting for Derek to show up.
Meanwhile, Baldwin confronts Don Brennan when he finally realises
that it was Don who torched his factory. Don admits all to Mike
but tells him he'll never be able to prove it was him. Immediately,
Mike goes to the police who question Don but they need proof to
arrest him. Mike returns to confront Don once more, this time
with a small microphone hidden behind his tie, connected to a
tape recorder, hoping to get a taped confession from Don. Unfortunately
Don spots Mike's mike and the game is up. However, after a drunken
binge, Don admits to Ashley it was he who burned the factory down.
Will Ashley do the decent thing and report Don to the police?
Course he will.
Roy Cropper comes down with flu so Audrey helps out in the
cafe. She takes a fancy to a tubby long distance lorry driver
and decides to chat him up. With Audrey sitting on his dining
table whispering sweet nothings in his ear, this bloke shows what
a cast iron constitution he has and isn't going to let anything
put him off his egg and chips!
Andy the sulky student has decided he wants to drop out of
University with only 2 months to go before his final exams. Steve
McDonald comes home from prison this weekend - just in time for
Fiona's engagement party (what a co-incidence!) but escorts Andy
out of Fiona's flat when Andy and Alan come to blows, Andy once
more has fried his brain on cheap lager. The next day the McDonald
clan attempt to have a normal family lunch together but Andy walks
out to the nearest pub with Steve following him. Andy gets into
another fight in the bar, and Steve takes a whack on the nose
and gets a fractured cheekbone, making him late getting back to
prison (and not doing his record there any good at all I imagine).
Most chilling line this week was Steve McDonald saying about Fiona's
engagement "She'll not marry him, she'll marry me".
Natalie Horrocks, Kev's new business partner takes Kev for
a quick drink in the Rovers to tell him that she'll be taking
more of an interest in the garage now that she and her husband
are separated. Somehow I don't think it's the garage she's interested
in, and what with Sally at her mum's in Scarborough too, who knows
what might happen? Surely our Kev isn't going to be unfaithful?
Angie takes Chris in as her lodger, after the two of them snogged
each other at Fiona and Alan's party. Mavis is most upset that
the scruffy (but lovely) Chris will be her new neighbour.
Tricia's new bloke Ray is getting his feet firmly under the
table when he takes Tricia out one evening (while Vera and Jack
baby-sit) and then the next night they stay in, watching videos
in the back room with Jamie. Scriptwriters - marry her off for
goodness sake, she's never been happier.
