Why I Love Violet






















Via the Corrie blog (spoilers, ho!) comes this nicely written appreciation for the Rovers' prettiest barmaid, Violet Wilson. The post contains spoilers for upcoming episodes, so be warned.

Trash Addict is always worth checking out. It's one of my bookmarked sites. Along with Shatnerian, of course.

Sorry, but I never understand the Violet enthusiasm. I find her quite colorless.

I know there's a deep dark secret somewhere, allusions have been made.

So maybe when her serial killer past is revealed I'll appreciate her more...

While speaking with Ken, she hinted once hinted at some trouble during her school years, but they never elaborated. The post I linked to mentioned rumours of various sorts but I think the writers haven't invented a past for her.

I like her because, among the young cast, she doesn't have bring particular baggage to the show - ie: Jason is thick and has fidelity issues, Maria is superficial, Claire is slightly insane, Sarah-Lou is selfish and has fidelity issues, Warren is thick and unintelligible, Jamie has fidelity issues, Leanne has fidelity issues and used be on drugs, Tyrone, Fizz, and Kirk are played for laughs, etc, etc.

Violet is just ... normal and someone you'd want to hang out with.

It's all in the ascots. She's a diamond in the rough, is our Violet.

Lubin: Welcome to Corrie Canuck.

Pamer: I'd been waiting for you to defend Violet.

I'm in the Violet camp.

She's the most hang out-able of the group.

I'd like to hang out with Roy Cropper, myself.

And of course writer Daran Little when I'm not busy kissing the hem of his garment.
