Richard III (ITV 1, Coronation Street, 6th February 2009)
Carla said during the episode of Coronation Street last night: “The lady protest too much. Methinks.” So there is a Hamlet connection. As the programme developed the storyline, it wasn’t Hamlet that I felt it was alluding to but Richard III. As the evil Tony admits to his murders and then tries to bare his chest so Carla could stab him. This storyline should have ended last night, but it drags on for another week. I’ve just watched a teary graveside preview from next Wednesday in the ITV i player. Please no more now – wrap it up and let’s move on.
