He's been back for a few episodes now but what you do make of Terry Duckworth this time around? And for those who can't remember him when he was on Coronation Street before, are you enjoying the character this first time around?
Me? Well, I was never that keen on him before, not when he used to upset Jack and Vera but I always loved his friendships with Kevin and Curly way back in the day. And while I would never expect Nigel Pivaro to win Best Actor in a soaps award ceremony, he does bring a certain menace to the cobbles.
This time around, without Jack to constrain him in any way, with Tyrone not being anywhere near a match for Terry and with Tommy looking for the father-hero he's convinced must be inside that stocky frame, he's worse than ever. And I'm loving it.
So what do you make to Terry Duckworth this time around? Terrible or Terrific?
