Part of the charm (and sometimes a bit of a drawback) of Coronation Street is the ever changing cast of charcters. The longevity of the show gives you the chance to really get to 'know' some of those characters. Sadly, at some point these characters will move on or pass away. (except for Ken Barlow of course) My favourite Coronation Street cast member who is no longer on the show is Norman 'Curly' Watts, played by Kevin Kennedy. Curly and I go back a few decades and we sort of grew up together. There are rumours that he might be written back into the show someday, which would be great. Till then I shall wax nostalgic and raise a pint to the memory of Curly. Cheers!
