Call The Doctor! Who?
There's a lovely tribute from one long time BBC tv show to our own Coronation Street over here. Yes, Doctor Who has given Corrie a nod on it's Golden Anniversary and with a little of the Doctor's jiggery-pokery magic, maybe The TARDIS can touch down in Weatherfield to lend a helping hand during the crisis at hand!
Doctor Who and Coronation Street do have a lot in common, with actors appearing in both series over the years. Helen Worth was in it in the 70s, Sarah Lancashire was in it in the season before the one just seen. Suranne Jones will be in an episode in the coming season and the late Elizabeth Sladen, who played Sarah Jane Smith on Doctor Who in the 70s and had her own Sarah Jane series was in Corrie for 6 episodes in 1970! Of course, current producer Phil Collinson comes to Corrie from Doctor Who as does director Graham Harper!
