This week in The Kabin on Coronation Street, there was a nice little scene where Colin and Norris turned up in the same outfits at the same time. I quite liked this bit and it made me chuckle.
But then I remembered... it's been done before. Yes, the very same sort of storyline, with Norris, in the Kabin.
Remember Horace? He worked with Norris in the Kabin and they ended up dressing alike and having the same mannerisms. This was back in 2009, so many people might have forgotten it or never seen it. And so here they are in all their glory.
Norris and Horace looked alike, dressed alike and talked alike.
“There’s two of them! This happened on a Doctor Who!” Simon Barlow pointed out at the time.
Well, on Monday night I shouted at the telly much the same words. "There's two of these storylines! This happened in Coronation Street before!"
I probably need to get out more.
