Production

Burn out

Producer Phil Collinson aimed to reach the heights of the tram crash with a new Rovers fire

Coronation Street spent its final year at Granada TV studios, its home since 1960. Recording at Stage One carried on until the Christmas break in December with the transfer to MediaCity studios occurring in January 2014.

A change in producer occurred in January when Phil Collinson left to take up a role producing new drama from ITV's base in Manchester, working with Kieran Roberts [1]. Having spent three years in the job, Collinson's tenure was the longest since Sue Pritchard's. His replacement was Stuart Blackburn, a former Coronation Street story editor from 2007 to 2009 and producer of Emmerdale for the past two years. Kieran Roberts remained executive producer, now in his eighth year.

As a finale to his tenure, Collinson delivered a new stunt which he promised would be as big as the tram crash [2]. The Rovers Return was set on fire for the second time in March, almost killing Stella Price and Sunita Alahan. The fire was planned a year in advance so that as much of the programme's budget could be allocated to the storyine as possible, with cut-backs being made elsewhere. The blaze itself was spread over three episodes. Although Stella and Sunita both survived the fire, arsonist Karl Munro subsequently murdered Sunita, who had witnessed the crime, by pulling out her ventilator tubes at Weatherfield General. This marked the departure of Shobna Gulati from the series, having played Sunita on and off since 2001.

The Rovers' grand re-opening formed part of the Britain's Got Talent finals week in May. Unlike the 1986 fire storyline, the rebuilt Rovers was more or less the same as before with the layout unchanged and minimal changes to the decor.

The week following the fire featured the climax of another of Collinson's principal storylines. In the first quarter of the year, the the male domestic abuse plot with Tyrone Dobbs and Kirsty Soames had come to the fore, with Tyrone himself being charged with domestic violence and standing trial accused of pushing Kirsty down the stairs. At the last minute, Kirsty set the record straight and went to prison in Tyrone's place. Alan Halsall won Best Actor at the National Television Awards and the British Soap Awards for his part in the storyline. By the story's end, Tyrone had re-kindled his relationship with Fiz Stape and they had formed a family unit with Hope and Ruby. Hope appeared for the first time in six months in January, recast with twins Faith and Nicole Holt, while Grace Hanrahan relinquished the part of Ruby in February, with Macy Alabi continuing in the role by herself having previously shared it with Hanrahan.

Another notable departure handled by Collinson was Nigel Havers as Lewis Archer. Blaming Gail McIntyre for sabotaging his relationship with Audrey Roberts, Lewis conned her out of £40,000 and fled, setting the stage for his third and final stint in 2018.

Allegations against Le Vell and Roache

Stuart Blackburn was first credited as producer in Episode 8099 on 8th April, three episodes after Sunita and Kirsty's exits. Blackburn joined the Coronation Street during a period of relative stability, but due to circumstances beyond his control, 2013 proved to be one of the programme's most chaotic years behind the scenes.

On 15th February, it was reported that Michael Le Vell had been charged with a string of sex offences dating between 2001 and 2010, including raping a child and sexual activity with a child. Le Vell had previously been accused of child abuse in 2011, but was not prosecuted. The decision was reviewed in 2013 leading to 19 charges being brought against Le Vell [3]. The actor was immediately suspended by ITV pending the outcome of legal proceedings, and any scenes featuring Kevin Webster which had yet to air were either removed or reshot. Kevin's absence was explained on-screen in April when Sally Webster reported to the residents that he'd gone to Germany to look after a seriously ill Bill. His son Jack was written out with him. At the trial in September, the jury found Le Vell not guilty on all counts. By this time, the actor was no longer under contract. In October, Le Vell signed a deal to return in 2014 after a much-needed break [4].

Just under three months later, on the morning of 1st May William Roache was arrested on suspicion of raping a 15-year-old girl in 1967. ITV swiftly announced that Ken Barlow would not appear for the duration of the police investigation. The CPS later charged Roache with two counts of rape [5]. Roache's absence was handled in the same fashion as Le Vell's, with all of his appearances in future episodes being cut and the character going abroad to nurse a sick relative, in this case his grandson Adam Barlow in Canada. On 6th June, Roache was charged with a further five counts of indecent assault against girls aged between 12 and 16, from the same time period as the other charges [6]. Roache pleaded not guilty to all the charges and a trial was set for 14th January 2014 in Preston.

A third scandal broke in August when a series of YouTube videos posted in 2012 came to light in which actor Chris Fountain appeared as "The Phantom", a masked rap artist who used obscene lyrics glorifying violence and rape. By the time Fountain made the videos private, they had already been viewed thousands of times [7]. Fountain subsequently apologised for the material but ITV suspended the actor before terminating his contract three days later [8]. Fountain's pre-recorded scenes were left intact with Tommy Duckworth making his final on-screen appearance in October and leaving Weatherfield later that month following an off-screen row with Tina McIntyre.

Enter Stuart Blackburn

Stuart Blackburn, Coronation Street's 32nd producer

Admist the upheaval, a new producer was bedding in. Having transferred from Emmerdale, Stuart Blackburn viewed Coronation Street as a distinctly working-class soap by comparison, and spoke about the importance of the programme staying true to its roots and telling stories which were socially relevant [9], rather than nostalgic or whimsical [10]. The clearest example of this aired in July when Paul Kershaw used the phrase "play the white man" in the Rovers within earshot of Lloyd Mullaney, who called him out on it. Although the story was supposed to be about male pride, reaction mostly concerned Paul's supposed racism with the outrage shown towards Paul by the pub regulars being dubbed unrealistic [11].

In an attempt to better reflect credit-crunch Britain, Barlow's Bookies went out of business in July to be replaced by a cash converters-style shop named Barlow's Buys, run by Tracy Barlow and Rob Donovan. To keep costs down, cast and crew were asked to donate unwanted items to use in the shop's display [12].

The early months of Blackburn's era saw Karl Munro exposed as Sunita's killer and persuaded by Stella to turn himself over to the police. John Michie signed a six-month contract in the knowledge that his character would be written out at the end of it [13]. Once the storyline was over, the Price family left the Rovers with Stella selling the pub back to Steve McDonald. Blackburn's ultimate goal was to get Liz McDonald back behind the bar and when Beverley Callard's theatre tour stopped off in Manchester, he met with the actress and persuaded her to come back full-time [14].

Blackburn also invited Bruno Langley back as Todd Grimshaw, Coronation Street's first gay character who had not appeared regularly since just after his coming out story in 2004. The Todd who moved back to Weatherfield from London was older and meaner than the one who left, looking down upon his neighbours in Coronation Street, and functioned as a low-level antagonist in the first two years of his return.

Two major storylines started on Phil Collinson's watch were resolved by Blackburn. The first was the premature birth of Jake Windass and Tina's decision whether or not to hand the baby over to his birth parents Gary Windass and Izzy Armstrong, which was the dominant storyline during the now-standard Britain's Got Talent finals week. Jake was played by a prosthetic baby in several episodes before Hayley and Layton Phoenix took over the part.

The other story also featured a birth - Lily Platt, daughter of Kylie and David. Starting out as a "Who's the Daddy"-type storyline after a one-night-stand between Kylie and Nick Tilsley in 2012, the plot lasted throughout 2013 with many twists and turns, most notably a car crash involving David and Nick which left the latter with permanent brain damage. Ava and Lilly Bushell played Lily from the character's birth.

Other cast changes

Faye Windass's deadbeat father Tim Metcalfe debuted in January, played by Joe Duttine. Tim was a short-term character brought in to cause friction between Faye and her adoptive mother Anna Windass, but was given a new lease of life when paired romantically with Sally Webster, a coupling which proved fertile ground for comedy.

Other new arrivals included Steph Britton, a friend of Katy Armstrong's who would later work at Nick's Bistro, and Sinead Tinker, a new girlfriend for Chesney Brown following his split from Katy. Kal Nazir, a personal trainer and ex-army mate of Gary Windass's played by Jimi Mistry, was part of the first Muslim family to live in Coronation Street. The other four members were introduced gradually over the next nine months. As well as Kal, December saw the introductions of Andrea Beckett, a student at Steve McDonald's history class at college who would go on to romance Lloyd Mullaney, and Maddie Heath, a homeless girl who became involved with Sophie Webster. Pat Phelan, a future Coronation Street villain, also made his first appearance in a storyline with Owen Armstrong.

Departures were less numerous, as the now-routine cast purge following the arrival of a new producer did not occur under Blackburn. Ryan Connor was announced as leaving for the time being when Sol Heras quit the role [15]. Pamela Nomvete also decided to leave after just eleven months as Mandy Kamara, while Paul Kershaw left the Street after splitting from Eileen Grimshaw. Meanwhile, Julie Carp was absent between May and August while Katy Cavanagh went on maternity leave. Julie's partner Brian Packham, a regular since 2011, continued to appear during her absence before being written out in December, when he set off for a new life in Wrexham.

Hayley Cropper's pancreatic cancer storyline was widely acclaimed

The most significant departure in Blackburn's first year was Julie Hesmondhalgh as Hayley Cropper. The actress had taken three months off in 2012 to appear in a play at the Royal Exchange Theatre, returning to screens in early January. Having enjoyed the experience, Hesmondhalgh decided to leave Coronation Street at the end of her current contract to pursue other acting work. Stuart Blackburn decided that the only realistic way for Hayley to leave Roy was for her to die. Over the second half of the year, Hayley fought a losing battle with pancreatic cancer and ultimately decided to end her life on her own terms. Her death scenes were broadcast in January 2014.

An online spin-off entitled Hayley's Diary, hosted by Coronation Street's official website, was designed to tie in with the cancer storyline. The thirteen-part series, spread over two weeks, chronicled Hayley's mission to complete the items on her bucket list. Though mostly made up of photo essays, it featured three mini episodes which included a return to the boating lake where she and Roy had their first kiss in 1998.

Roy's mother Sylvia Goodwin disappeared from the programme in August when Stephanie Cole took time off to deal with a family bereavement. This resulted in Sylvia's planned role in the cancer storyline being shelved, with the character leaving a letter for the Croppers explaining that she had gone to stay with her sister. Six months after her last appearance, Cole confirmed on ITV's Daybreak programme that she had no plans to return. Sylvia was eventually killed off in 2019 without Cole reprising the part.

Leaving Quay Street

Cast members open the new set

The new outdoor set at MediaCityUK was unveiled to the public at a press day on 29th November. Members of the cast toured the set for the first time, with Sue Nicholls doing the honours at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Tony Warren was among the visitors on the first day [16].

ITV's third annual Text Santa fundraiser included another Coronation Street sketch on Friday 20th December. Cheryl Cole guest-starred as herself as the singer met with the street's residents to find somebody to take to a Christmas party, eventually settling on Norris Cole.

20th December was also the last day of filming at Quay Street studios before the Christmas break. The last scene shot at Stage One was of Eileen, Todd and Jason Grimshaw in the back room of 11 Coronation Street, for Episode 8333 which aired on 28th February 2014. When production resumed in January, it took place entirely at MediaCityUK. The former Granada Studios, including Stage One and the 1982 outdoor set, were bought by developer Allied London for a reported £26.5m.

Ratings chart for the year

A successful year for Coronation Street saw the ratings average rise for only the third time since 2000. At 8.37 million viewers, this was an increase of 150k on 2012, albeit still lower than any other year. April to June and August to November were up year-on-year, with June and August rising by nearly a million viewers. No months dropped significantly.

The programme's performance in the ratings charts remained steady, with 13 episodes reaching number one - up from ten in 2012 - and two episodes falling outside the top twenty.

The highest-rated episode of the year was Episode 8045 on 21st January, concentrating on the Tyrone/Kirsty domestic abuse storyline and Faye Windass meeting her biological father Tim Metcalfe, with 10.03m viewers. No episode of Coronation Street have broken ten million viewers since this date.
