    I can't stand gail in Corrie. I stop watching when she's in the main storyline. She looks as old as her mother Audry who must be 70 + and still working!
    I'd love to know how many bedrooms they have as some houses accommodate loads of people. Like No1 with the Barlows, Peter and Simon, at one point and Blanche.

    Gail is one ugly creature she looks like ET after a stroke, where do the peeps in Corrie park their Cars too? cause you never see them outside the houses in the street.

    I always liked Trevor in Eastenders he was soo evil he was great.

    I would like to know what the characters in Coronation Street used to watch at 7.30pm, on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday?

    I used to be obsessed with Families. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Families_%28TV_series%29

    That show was better than any of them, particularly the story around Charles Bannerman having an affair with his son's fiancee. When all that came out, it was a brilliant episode.
    Jude Law was in the early episodes, but he wasn't great in it, you'd never guess he would be the one to go on to major fame. Anyone else a fan of this show in the 90s?

    Yes stockportyears! I loved Morag Hood and thought the series was pretty good generally. As well as Jude Law, there was the guy who played his brother, who was in quite a successful band at the time. My memory is that I enjoyed the earlier episodes more than the later ones. I used to be able to play the theme on my piano!

    The series lasted about two years, didn't it?

    Who remembers Bea, Lizzie and `The Freak`, Ferguson from Prisoner Cell Block H? I thought it was quite a good programme although amateurish. I spent many a late night watching this.

    Martin Glyn Murray was in the Mock Turtles who did 'Can You Dig It' in 1991. I remembered when that was on Top of the Pops, I had no idea it was actually him and remember thinking 'wow, he's the spitting image of that guy in Families', then I found out a few years later it was him.

    It was on for three years, must have gone quickly it was so good!

    I seem to remember it had some of the best looking people you could find anywhere on tv in it - even the scruffy bloke who ran the pub had two beautiful daughters, and of course the Bannermans were probably the most glamorous people in the whole of northern England at that time.

    I probably preferred the later era with the Bannermans in it, but the early eps were good too, and Edward Woodward's son had a voice so much like his dad, I could shut my eyes and think I was watching the Equaliser!

    I also liked it because I recognised the locations - as well as Tatton Park mentioned in the Wikipedia article, there was one scene between Charles and Fiona at Stockport Railway Station, and the corridors of Crown Court where Charles did his lawyering were actually Manchester Town Hall - I purposely made a call from the very same phone kiosk as CB had in one episode, just for the hell of it, THAT'S how obsessed with Families I was at the time!

    Wow, you recall a lot more than I. Though I really was a big fan at the time. Yes, Martin Glyn Murray. That was the guy. I've been Googling for some nice pics, but there's practically nothing!
