A new home
Stuart Blackburn produced Coronation Street in its first year at MediaCityUK, with Kieran Roberts continuing in the role of executive producer. The first scenes were shot at MediaCity studios, Coronation Street's new production base, when cast and crew re-convened on 9th January. The programme operated out of four studios in the main building, which was christened "The Tony Warren Building" in honour of the programme's creator in a special ceremony held on 20th May. To reflect this change, an updated title sequence premiered with Episode 8339 on 10th March, the first episode to be made entirely at MediaCity. This was a tweaked version of the previous title sequence replacing the outdated shots of the street with ones filmed on the new outdoor set .
The backlot at MediaCity replicated its Quay Street counterpart as much as possible, with the intention being that viewers would not be able to tell the difference. The biggest change was that the Rosamund Street backdrop was done away with, and the thoroughfare carried on past the viaduct crossing a row of shops, possibly an extension of Mawdsley Street. The new façade wasn't shown in full for several months, and directors were initially instructed to use tight camera angles to hide the 9/10 scale of the houses (compared with 7/10 on the 1982 set) in order to make the transition between the two sets as seamless as possible. Meanwhile, the backs of the houses in Mawdsley Street were built for the first time to enable more flexibility in recording ginnel and back yard scenes.
From this point onwards, the exterior of the main studio building doubled as the outside of Weatherfield General hospital. The car park and front gates were also used for occasional filming.
In April, the former site at Quay Street was opened to the public for the first time since 1999. Coronation Street: The Tour was originally envisaged as a six-month attraction allowing visitors to roam freely around the 1982 outdoor set with guided tours of the studio facilities at Stage One, where a number of standing sets were displayed on loan from ITV, along with an exhibition of costumes and props. The tours ran from 5th April to 4th October but were re-opened the following week due to high visitor numbers, continuing until 31st December 2015 .
Kevin and Ken's returns
Two of Coronation Street's senior cast members returned after concluding high-profile legal battles.
Michael Le Vell was back on set in January after signing a new contract. Kevin and Jack Webster returned to screens in March. Just four weeks later, the pair were written out again when Le Vell admitted to taking class-A drugs before and after his 2013 trial for sex offences in a "moment of weakness" . Le Vell and producers mutually agreed that he would take another break from the programme in order to seek professional help. Kevin's departure from Weatherfield took place off-screen with the mechanic again going to nurse a sickly Bill Webster in Germany. Following his successful treatment, Le Vell returned to work with a low-key return by Kevin and Jack airing in September.
William Roache's trial for rape and indecent assault began on 14th January at Preston Crown Court. One of the charges was dropped on 27th January due to insufficient evidence and on 6th February he was cleared of the six remaining charges. Outside court after the verdicts were announced, the 81-year-old actor told the press "if you'll excuse me, I'd like to get back to work." .
Roache returned to filming in June after a 14-month absence. Three months later, ITV announced that Anne Kirkbride would be taking an extended break from the programme but did not give a reason . Deirdre Barlow was written out for the duration, leaving the street to stay with her friend Bev Unwin in the Peak District after struggling to cope with recent family dramas. Kirkbride passed away on 19th January 2015 after a battle with breast cancer, which had been diagnosed in the autumn and was only revealed to the public afterwards .
Deaths of Hayley and Tina
Hayley Cropper was killed off in January as part of her pancreatic cancer storyline. Hayley ended her own life before the cancer took her, a decision not supported by her husband Roy. The story garnered critical acclaim and was responsible for much of the programme's awards haul in 2014, contributing six awards at the British Soap Awards, Best Storyline at the TV Choice Awards, and a win for Serial Drama Performance by Julie Hesmondhalgh at the National Television Awards, while Coronation Street won for Serial Drama at the latter ceremony as well as Best Soap and Continuing Drama at the BAFTA TV Awards.
The biggest storyline of 2014 was the murder of Tina McIntyre by Rob Donovan. Michelle Keegan confirmed reports that she had quit the programme over a year before the episodes aired as part of Britain's Got Talent week in May . Her exit was unusual in that while Rob was plainly shown landing the killing blow after Tina threatened to report him and Tracy Barlow for buying knock-off gear at Barlow's Buys, ITV presented it as a whodunit, publicising the fact that Tina would be murdered and previewing showdown scenes with each of the four prime suspects, dubbing the storyline "Who Kills Tina?" . Tina's last appearance came in the form of a video on Steph Britton's phone, seen two weeks after her on-screen death, which was the last scene Keegan shot for the programme.
One of the suspects in the murder was Peter Barlow, who was charged and found guilty of the crime. Actor Chris Gascoyne had decided to leave at the end of his contract having played Peter constantly since 2008, opening the possibility that Peter would remain in prison, but instead Carla Barlow exposed her brother Rob as the killer and Peter was exonerated, moving to Portsmouth immediately afterwards. The main casualty of the storyline was Marc Baylis, who was forced to leave the programme when his character Rob was imprisoned.
Peter continued to appear while at Highfield Prison, in a storyline with a returning Jim McDonald. Nicknamed "The Landlord", Jim smuggled alcohol into the prison allowing him to use Peter to get Liz and Steve to visit him. This continued the transition of Jim into a more unsavoury character and tied into Steve's ongoing depression storyline.
Putting down roots
The first change to the new set occurred within weeks of the move. V Court Fitness gym was opened opposite the Victoria Court apartments in April and introduced Kal Nazir's father Sharif to the programme as its co-owner. The other Nazirs - Kal's mother Yasmeen and children Alya and Zeedan - appeared over the coming months as they became relevant to storylines, so that they were all familiar to viewers before the family moved into the street in December.
Yasmeen, matriarch of the family, rented the old butcher shop in Victoria Street and opened Jamila House community centre in October, the first such establishment to feature regularly in the programme since 1989.
A deeper exploration of Kylie Platt's past took place with the introduction of Max Turner's father, drug dealer Callum Logan, as a major villain. Kylie sought out her ex-boyfriend for a pick-me-up after becoming addicted to Max's ADHD medication. The storyline was only meant to lead into Paula Lane's maternity leave, with David Platt kicking Kylie out of the house on Christmas Day, but Sean Ward who played Callum was kept on in her absence with David and Callum fighting over Max.
Another character created at this time was Gemma Winter, a friend of Kylie's from the estate where she grew up. Gemma appeared sporadically in 2014 and 2015 as a lackey of Callum's before becoming a regular in 2016.
Comedian Les Dennis, famous for his Mavis Wilton impression on Russ Abbot's Madhouse, joined Coronation Street as Michael Rodwell, a down-on-his-luck businessman who was caught burgling No.8. After his release from prison, Michael befriended and eventually romanced his victim, Gail McIntyre. This led into a major storyline where Michael traced his long-lost son Gavin and was welcomed back into his life, only for it to be revealed (to the audience) that "Gavin" was an impostor named Andy Carver.
Other introductions included Steph Britton's brother Luke, vicar Billy Mayhew, Liz McDonald's friend Erica Holroyd played by Emmerdale veteran Claire King, and Dr Gaddas, a new GP employed at Rosamund Street Medical Centre to replace Dr Carter. Meanwhile, Jason Grimshaw's shady father Tony Stewart re-appeared as a regular character, recast with Terence Maynard in the role. Two of the children in the programme also changed heads, with Lucca-Owen Warwick replacing Ronny and Tommy Cheetham as Joseph Brown and Betsie and Emmie Taylor taking over the role of Lily Platt from Ava and Lilly Bushell.
Some prominent names from Phil Collinson's tenure left the programme. Michelle Collins, playing Stella Price, resigned after her character was moved on from her position as landlady of the Rovers Return. Collins stated that she "didn’t want to just be hanging around not doing anything" . Stella made a low-key departure in April, two months after her mother Gloria left Weatherfield in the more dramatic fashion of driving off in a sports car with Dennis Tanner. Sue Johnston had quit the programme in order to focus on other TV projects . This left Eva Price as the only remaining member of the clan.
Dennis Tanner was seen again in his final storyline where he returned with his tail between his legs and attempted to persuade Rita to take him back. In his last appearance, Dennis was caught by Rita with his hand in The Kabin till, convincing Rita to finish with him for good. The decision was taken to write Dennis out to show the consequences of him reverting to his roguish ways . At the point of Philip Lowrie's axing, he was the only member of Coronation Street's original cast still in the programme on account of William Roache being absent indefinitely.
Charlie Condou quit after seven years on-and-off as Marcus Dent . Marcus left for pastures new in July after breaking up with Todd Grimshaw. The following month saw Jenna Kamara go overseas to do voluntary work when producers decided not to renew Krissi Bohn's contract .
Fiz Stape was written out temporarily in November as Jennie McAlpine went on maternity leave. Wendi Peters made her first appearance as Cilla Battersby-Brown since 2007 to facilitate Fiz's exit, as Cilla came to stay at No.9 and revealed her osteoporosis to Fiz and Chesney. Fiz then went Wolverhampton to help look after Cilla for a while.
Three online spin-offs were made in 2014 which to date are the most recent bonus material produced for Coronation Street. As with most earlier web productions, the episodes were a few minutes each with a strongly comedic flavour. The first, made available for streaming in February, was Street Car Stories, a four-part series showing the inner workings of the Street Cars cab office. The series was written by Chris Fewtrell and featured Steve McDonald and Lloyd Mullaney.
Next were two videos posted on Norris Cole's Twitter page @NorrisMole, which had been active since 2010 featuring occasional posts purportedly written by the character. The "selfie"-style videos were written by Martin Sterling and featured Norris and Mary Taylor within Weatherfield Crown Court as Norris prepared to give evidence at Peter Barlow's murder trial.
Finally, a third mini-series was released over December 2014 and January 2015, entitled What Would Kirk Do?. In each of the five episodes, Kirk Sutherland would be presented with a dilemma relating to his upcoming wedding to Beth Tinker with three possible solutions offered to viewers.
BARB ratings across the 253 episodes averaged 7.23 million viewers. This represented a loss of 1.24m from 2013, or 14% of the total audience - proportionally the biggest single-year drop in the programme's history. While every month was down year-on-year by at least 600k, the magnitude of the drops generally increased as the year went on, with the most extreme case being October which was down 1.7m viewers.
Coronation Street's chart performance also took a downturn, with three episodes reaching number one compared with 13 in 2013, its lowest since 2001, although three episodes fell outside the top twenty which was only one more than 2013. The highest rated episode - Hayley Cropper's death from cancer - was 8305 on 20th January which was seen by 9.53 million viewers. This was the first occasion since 1960 where the peak viewing figure was sub-ten million viewers, a figure the programme has not achieved since. The low point of the year - Episode 8528 on 7th December - was also notable in that its audience of 5.25m viewers was the lowest of any episode up to this point. The previous record for lowest rated episode had stood since 2009.
