Whither, Newton and Ridley? Also, plans for Christmas
Via that other Corrie blog (spoilers, ho!), there's news that some British prime time shows will be able to use product placement as a means of revenue. This means that real world beers will appear in the Rover's along with, or perhaps replacing, Newton and Ridley's.
It's not necessarily a bad idea, if it doesn't become distracting like in some shows. Some important plot point is developing and all I can think is, "Gee, I want a Dr. Pepper right now..."
Now here's a confession: This whole time, I thought N & R's was a real beer. So I guess while I'm off to Britain in two days, I won't be sampling any (ah, but there is Younger's Pale Ale...).
Oh, did I mention that? Yeah, Christmas in Scotland. We will travel into the future to see what our Corrie characters are doing eight months from now.
We may even see the Corrie panto. I may even see discover what the hell a panto actually is.
Merry Christmas, all. See you in the new year.
