So the new set finally made its debut on screen this week, heralding a new era for the street, we didn't really get any big wide views of the street tonight, though I imagine that was done purposefully.
Though what we did see was noticeably bigger, while still remaining that Coronation Street look, I have to admit I was quite surprised by how much it actually resembles the old street on screen, the people behind it have done a fantastic job.
We didn't just get a new street tonight, the titles were finally updated to reflect recent changes on the street, with Nick's Bistro now appearing at the end of the street, and a new shot showing the Kabin and Viaduct Street, showing off the new full length viaduct (that used to cut off just after R'Terry's old club).
The new shots in the opening titles seemed to be a bit more in focus too, compared to how they used to look. I can't wait to see how they begin to use the new set in the months to come, could we see some new business' crop up? Or some old business' blow up?
For those of you who missed the titles, or live in Canada, Youtube user Corrie Xtra uploaded the new titles for all to see.
