One of the comments on this post (has some spoilers) about Phil Collinson, regarding his comments in an interview about the past not really mattering got me thinking, as these things do. In spite of that, we do know that Mr. C seems to continue to give a nod to the past just the same and that's where I'm going with this blog post.
Remembering and incorporating Coronation Street's past should always be part of the canvas even though the show must always look forward, too. But there are some storylines they seem to have completely erased from their memory, hoping we will forget too and sometimes, that's not a bad thing. Have a read and see what you think.
