I loved hearing last night on Coronation Street the Square Dealers getting a mention. The Square Dealers, eh? Now, there's a blast from the past.
Along with a mention of David's epilepsy in the same episode, it was like harking back to long-forgotton scripts. Shame then that Corrie forgot where it was going with Tim's literacy storyline. If Tim can't read, how did he come to get in touch with daughter Faye over the internet?
Anyway, I digress. Back to the Square Dealers.
Kal's dad is now a member of the Square Dealers, it appears, and has gone off with them all to a tour of Scottish whisky distilleries.
The Square Dealers, you might remember (as I don't, not fully) was Weatherfield's equivalent to the Freemasons. I seem to recall that Fred Elliott was the Grand Master in the Square Dealers, as was Norris and Reg. It was kind of a businessman's club and women, as far as I recall, weren't allowed to join.
With the return of The Square Dealers, I wonder if we'll see WARTS next?
