Corrie's affectionate nod to Patrick Macnee

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog June 2015, reposted to this blog with permission.)

The sad passing of actor Patrick Macnee was announced yesterday.  The actor was best known for playing Steed in The Avengers.

Coronation Street's senior storyline writer, Martin Sterling took to twitter to say that one of Underworld's clients in Corrie was named after Patrick Macnee.  Martin has 'protected tweets' on twitter and has given me permission to post a screen grab of his tweet, below.

Martin tells us here at the Coronation Street Blog that calling Underworld clients Macnee's was an affectionate nod as he was a huge fan of The Avengers growing up.
