Bring back Audrey's son, Stephen Reid

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

We saw him last on Coronation Street in 2007 but tonight, Audrey's son Stephen Reid, got a mention in the show.

Stephen is Gail's half-brother and the uncle to Nick, David and Sarah-Lou, who's in Milan, working for one of Stephen's businesses.

With thanks to Corripedia, we also remember that when Stephen was born, Audrey had to give him up for adoption.

Stephen turned up in the Street for the first time in 1996 to get to know Audrey and his half-sister, Gail. During his stay, Nick was sent by Gail to live with him as Nick's relationship with his mother became stained and Stephen offered him a job in Canada, which Nick accepted.

In 2007, Stephen returned to Weatherfield to visit Audrey and Gail for Christmas. He offered his other nephew David a job in his business and David accepted. However, because of David's relationship with Gail, Stephen offered his niece Sarah the job instead, so Stephen left Weatherfield again with Sarah and her daughter Bethany to Milan. He was unable to make it to Gail's fifth wedding to Joe McIntyre.

Could it be time for Stephen Reid to reappear?

If they do bring him back they need to find a Canadian actor. That American that played him before did an extremely poor imitation of our accent to the point where it was insulting.
