Tracy and Todd - the odd couple of Coronation Street

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog January 2016, reposted to this blog with permission.)

Is anyone else loving the relationship between Tracy and Todd in Coronation Street?  These two are perfect together and I'm starting to really enjoy any scene in which they're both in.  Not because I like them, but exactly because I don't.

Both of them are friendless (apart from Beth, who for some strange reason, likes Tracy). And having no-one else who can put up with either of them, they've found their own friendship together.  Both of them are evil and nasty and capable of the most horrible things, even murder.  They understand each other so well.

I think Todd's got the upper hand in the relationship though as he knows and understands Tracy very well.  Tracy, on the other hand, isn't the brightest button in the box as far as working out how other people's minds work and I doubt she'd be able to get one over on Todd.

I'm wondering where this friendship will go.  With Todd being gay, there's no way Tracy can flatter him and flirt with him to get what she wants.  I hope they both join forces to do something unspeakably nasty, with Tracy hoping to put the blame for it all on Todd and then it all comes crashing down on her instead.

Mind you, I'm still hopeful that she'll get found out for causing the Victoria Court fire but that seems to have been forgotton about. Let's hope that when Kate Oates comes in as new Coronation Street producer this spring, she'll tie up a whole load of story loose ends.

While I find Carla and Roys friendship hearwarming,
Todd and Tracy are birds of a feather and they have
a lot of great interaction. I think you're right
that Todd is just a bit more self aware and understands
Tracy, while she shoots from the lip and has very little
empathy for anyone. Hope they carry one for a long time
to come, great stuff!

I love the 'friendship'. I like that Todd is gay so Tracy will not be obsessed then heartbroken by another bloke. I hope the writers actually create a tender moment of support between them....because I think Todd knows he likes Tracy deep down...but I think it would be a revelation to Tracy.
I am a Tracy fan and I hated Todd until he came into Tracy's scenes. They are great together. IMHO
