Coronation Street Review Of The Year 2017

(This post was originally posted by Rachel Stevenson on the Coronation Street Blog in December 2017, reposted to this blog with permission.)

As I did last year, I've compiled my (subjective) awards for the year, sort of based on the Inside Soap Awards, sort of based on what's in my head. Please feel free to disagree in the comments!

Best Actor - Jack P Shepherd (David Platt). I love David, even now he's got that beard and did.....did Audrey give him a perm?!

Best Actress - Patti Clare (Mary Taylor-Cole). I love what the writers have done with Mary this year and Patti C can do it all - comedy, pathos, tragedy, anger, shame, and so forth. Long may her storylines continue.

Best Villain - Pat Phelan (Connor McIntyre). Even Nasty Nathan and Evil Clark Kent (Michelle's stalker Will) were no competition.

Funniest Male - Brian Packham (Peter Gunn). Stiff competition from Steve and Tim, but Brian always brings the hilarity.

Funniest Female - Gemma Winter (Dolly Rose Campbell). Everything Gemma does is amazing.

Best Newcomer - Daniel Osborne (Rob Mallard). OK, he technically arrived at the end of last year, but I love Daniel with his longing looks from under lashes, his languid limbs, his shortlived romance with Billy The Vicar Sinead, although I hope the storyliners have other things up their collective sleeves than him mooning after Sinead and her soap.

Runner Up - Nicola Rubenstein. An interesting character whom I hope stays on after Phelan is banged up.

Best Young Actor - Fay(e) Windass (Ellie Leach). I do love Blanche-a-like Amy Barlow but Faye's teenage eye-rolls always make me laugh.

Sexiest Male - Andy Carver (Oliver Farnworth). Even with the kidnap stubble and the crusty denim shirt.

Sexiest Female - Eva Price (Cath Tyldesley)
Runner up - Rosie Webster

Best Partnership - Norris and Mary.
Runner Up  - Todd and Billy (sob!)

Most On/Off/On/Off/On/Off/On/Off Couple - Gary and Sarah
Runner up - Faye and Seb

Best Storyline - The Evengeance of Ms Price

Mystery Storyline - Who Clobbered Ken?
Runner Up - Who's Leanne's Baby Daddy?

Most Upsetting Storyline - Bethany's grooming by Nathan
Runner up - Michelle's miscarriage

Best Return - Carla!
Runner up - Rob Donovan 

Worst Exit - Moo(i)ra with Vic Reeves to Stoke On Trent (the horror!). At least there's a way back for our titian queen of the medical centre.
Runner Up - Mr Tilsley in the Nicksand (or, slightly after anyway).

Worst Dressed - Kate gives Toyah a run for her money with her ensembles from the 1978 edition of the Clothkits catalogue, but Ms Battersby's high necked Edwardian blouses make me reach for the sickbag.

Onto 2018!
