Mad Men meets Weatherfield

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog in January 2011, reposted to this blog with permission.)

I've recently discovered the joys of Mad Men  and have spotted some similarities between the characters from Madison Avenue and those of Coronation Street.  So here we go with my take on Mad Men, Weatherfield-style.

Roger Sterling is Ken Barlow. He's a ladies man through and through, hides behind his newspaper and no-one's quite sure what  he does all day long.

Don Draper is Kevin Webster.  Both alpha males, these two brush up a treat after a hard day at work.

Peggy Olson is Hayley Cropper. Neither of them are ready to settle for prescribed gender roles and strike out on their own to do their thing. And both have a secret son.

Joan Harris is Julie Carp, Corrie's very own sweater girl.  These are the women you want on your side if you've got something to sort. 

What's to say with these two?  Pete Campbell is Nick Tilsley. Both have a face that deserve a thousand slaps.

And finally, the belle of the ball meets the blonde bombshell of bedlam. Betty Draper is Sally Webster. All sweetness and light on the surface but woe betide any man who messes with these ladies.

Have a look at our Sopranos - Weatherfield Style, Coronation Street meets The Flinstones and more Corrie look-a-likes here.
