Our blogger Chewy wrote a wonderful piece about The Element of Surprise in Coronation Street this week. He refers to the fact that storylines are more exciting when we don't know what's going to happen.
Added to that, we've noticed that since Kate Oates took over as Producer, there have been a few historic references to past characters on the show. And it's not just characters - Weatherfield County FC and The Zambesi Club have been mentioned recently too.
This week we heard Ken refer to his brother's footballing trophies and so for those who might be scratching their heads thinking: "Ken had a brother?" here's a little bit about him from Corriepedia:

It's all good stuff and bodes well for the tenure of Kate Oates at the helm of our favourite soap.
