The Angela Saga



Quick Corrie history lesson to bring everyone up to date about Angela.

It all starts with Mavis Riley who shows up on Corrie August 14, 1971. Mavis eventually ends up working at the Kabin for Rita and marries Derek Wilton who arrives on the street June 7, 1976.

Derek’s ex-wife is Angela Hawthorne who owned the stationary business that he works at as a salesman.

One day in 1994 Derek got stranded on the highway back from London and meets Norris, who gives him a lift back to Weatherfield. Norris needed a place to stay and stays with Derek and Mavis’s home for an extended period of time. At some point, Derek introduces Norris to Angela and bada-bing bada-boom, Norris becomes Mr. Angela and Derek’s new boss.

Angela in the show has always been the Corrie equivalent of Maris on Fraiser….much spoke of, but never seen.So you can understand why I dropped my Boilermaker on Sunday morning when she arrives on the scene. Not sure if I'm glad or dissappointed that she finally makes an appearence. (And something tells me this will not be the end of her.)

NOTE: For anyone following Corrie Classics, you can seen Mavis, Derek and Norris altogether and because they are re-running episodes, you'll also be able to catch the wedding of Norris and Angela. (Or more correctly, you'll see Norris marry Angela's hat.)

Thanks so much for all the info! I had no idea.

A ha! We were wondering who this strange woman was. Thank you. BTW, are boilermakers the official beverage of Corrie Morning? To think we've been just drinking 'cuppas' all this time. Your choice is way more fun.

Sadly, Corrie Classics on CBC Country Canada have reverted back to their beginning (with the aftermath of one of Martin's affairs on Gail, Steve still dating Fiona, etc.). VERY ANNOYING.

I wrote a strongly worded letter to CBC asking for them to justify my paying for their speciality channel when its now suddenly become redundant.

I have news for you all regarding CBC. They won't be showing the next 2 olympics, so no interruptions to our Corrie!
