DS MacKinnon was the copper who led the hunt for Ken's attacker. She was bolsy and ballsy and rarely cracked a smile. That is, until her very final scene when she walked off with her colleague after having to let Daniel go free when Ken lied that he fell down the stairs.
That final smile set me thinking... have we seen the end to DS MacKinnon? I hope not.
As we know, Coronation Street are expanding the set and they are building a police station as part of the set. You can find out more on all of that here.
Let's hope that Sandra Huggett returns to the role of DS MacKinnon in Corrie on a more permanent basis. She could be Craig's new boss, perhaps, when the Bethany grooming storyline finally ends and PC Neil gets his butt kicked and gets nicked. She might just be the woman for the job.
