Coronation Street responds to Pat Phelan violence complaints

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog October 2017, reposted to this blog with permission.)

Responding today to the complaints online from fans about last night's Coronation Street, an ITV spokesperson has given the following statement:

“Coronation Street has always been recognised for its mix of drama and comedy, as well as hard hitting storylines.

“Phelan has already been established as a villain in a long line of murderous Coronation Street villains and so his actions, evil though they are, won’t have come as a surprise to viewers.

“In addition the programme is always careful to limit the level of violence actually shown to a minimum to convey the drama and tell the story. 

“And, of course, one day, Phelan will get his comeuppance and justice will be done."

Based on the comments in the various forums, it's just gone on too long. Also there isn't any balance. No comedy as previously.

Yes. VERY tired of all the American-style drama, drama, drama with no respiter with humour and just regular life. You should have kept one or two of those drama lines going and had more real live going on, more humour. Can you find some of the old writers who know how to write Corrie life? PLEADE!?
