Question of the Week


Alright loves, here is the question of the week (okay of the last 6 months...because we haven't had one in a long time.)

Which Corrie characters have been Martinized?

Think back and try to remember which Corrie characters have started out as fairly normal nice people but who were later turned into big creepy freaks.

My nominations:

Martin certainly.

Don Brennan also.

Now, I was going to add Sally, but I don't they've turned her into a creep as much as they've turned her into a bitch.

Who do you think?

Charlie.

I swear I remember him not being a creepy icky man for a few seconds way back there in the beginning.

My vote is also for Shelly. She use to be sort of normal.. even back in the Peter days she was alright.

I dont know that I find Martin creepy.. I felt bad for the actor if the stories are true. They wanted him to end up with someone even younger than Katie, and he wasnt comfortable with it. He said he was already getting a lot of flack on his storyline as it was. I guess even his family was having comments against them. As for nice to creepy,, well of course Richard Hillman, but I think they did a good job on Janice too. Her charactor was not bad at one point, then when she was let go they turned her into a human bulldog (our episodes now). Sadly even after they reversed the decision to let her go, they have not redeemed her at all.

Yeah, Janice is a character who used to be a blunt character who stood up for herself but now they've just made her a thoroughly unpleasant person. The bit at the red rec rang just completely untrue to me.

Certainly, people change. I'm a lot different at 34 than I was at 24 but Martin's change seems, well, just off. Watch him on Corrie Classics, he's a different guy.

If they turn Roy and Hayley into money-grubbing assholes or something, I swear I'll...actually that would be really funny...

Lori said...

Speaking of Corrie Classics,, Tracy Barlow was announcing her wedding today. Now that is a changed charactor!

Tommy Harris. He was originally a quick-tempered, but nice guy who supported Angela's testimony and even being put in witness protection.

Suddenly it was fisticuffs, sneering, insulting Angela, beating on his kid in the street... just a little weird.

Maria

Remember when Maria came onboard, she was all sweet and innocent...then she turned into a skiving bitch, and now she's turned all sweet again.

Jim McDonald. Started out as just a fiery Irishman - a spit, no vinegar. Goes onto wife beating, sleeping with son's girlfriend and finally murder.

The reverse is true too - characters who started out not nice and became loveable - noticeably Ciaran - started trying to bed Shelley under his best friend Peter's nose.
