Is it time for Mary to go?

(This post was originally posted by Llifon on the Coronation Street Blog in March 2012.)
Am I the only one who thinks that Mary has gone past her sell by date on Corrie? In fact, I don't find her that funny anymore. Truth be told, I'm finding her quite disturbing. She was OK at the beginning when she was after Norris but when she returned from her round the world trip it seems she's had a personality change. I've found her rude and insulting to other characters who have done nothing to her, the recent example being Julie when she insulted her pregnancy. She also seems to insult Rita and Emily for no apparent reason. And her revenge on poor Hayley on her wedding day wasn't funny, I thought.

The fact that she and Norris are still friends after the Bronte saga is unbelievable! She's too eccentric and I think it's time for her to go. She likes to take over (Hayley's wedding and she tried to take over Rita's) and I don't find that at all funny. I think Norris works better with Rita and Emily and it seems that we're being robbed of those classic scenes for his scenes with Mary. Maybe she was brought in to lighten Emily's scenes?

While classic nosy parkers and gossips Norris and Blanche talked about characters behind their backs, Mary tends to gossip about and berate them when they're in a scene, which is unrealistic. And that is why I think Mary should leave Coronation Street in her motor home and never return!

What do you think? Do you agree?

Yes it is time for her to go. I thought her cruel remarks to Julie about her pregnancy were completely thoughtless. She has also said some snippy things to Rita as well.

I don't understand why she is in the shop is she employed there? If not I have always wondered what does she live on? I for one would not miss her at all.

Totally in agreement as well. I never liked her and was sure that she would end up disappearing like Martin Platt's mad nanny stalker years ago. If she was even remotely amusing, there might be some use to her, but as written now, she is cruel, rude, scary and I was going to say unrealistic. That isn't true though, I actually know people like her and go far out of my way to avoid them. She should leave, hopefully in some spectacular way that keeps her from ever returning.

I agree. I've never really seen the point of having her character on the show. She's not only unpleasant, but she is completely one-dimensional. Apart from her attachment to Norris (which seems more obsession than love)she doesn't seem to have any empathy with or compassion for anyone.
