Would you watch Coronation Street in 3D?

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog February 2013, reposted to this blog with permission.)

The Express today has a story that says Coronation Street is preparing to shoot in 3D.  Which means, of course, we'll need to wear those daft, special glasses to see the effects.  

The story says that the "ground-breaking move" for Corrie will be made possible with the move to the new set at MediaCity in Salford Quays.

Corrie already shoots in HD, but insiders say the new set will need to be “fit for purpose” and “future-proofed”. This includes the option of shooting special entire episodes in 3D. Pilot tests in 3D for both Emmerdale and Coronation Street were undertaken two years ago.

Apparantly, ITV plans to make announcements shortly about “minor changes” to the famous cobbled street.

So, what do you think about watching Corrie in 3D?

I'm no fan of 3D but then I'm an old fuddy-duddy and I don't relish Eva's cleavage popping out of my screen and into my living room, alhtough it will give new meaning to the phrase "you'll have someone's eye out with them".  

And if the 3D glasses were Deirdre Barlow-shaped then maybe it could even be fun.
