Is Owen Armstrong the new Len Fairclough?

He's got the tool kit, the builder's yard and the quick temper. Owen Armstrong is Coronation Street's new Len Fairclough. But don't just take my word for it, listen to Ian Wylie's podcast.  In it he interviews Ian Puleston-Davies, who plays Owen, and he reveals that when he was given the character details for Owen on joining the Street, it said that they specifically wanted him in the mould of Len.  We all know that soaps are built on repetition and stereotypes, but this is one of the more interesting ones, don't you think?
