Production

The long goodbye

Stuart Blackburn stood down as producer in April. His three-year run in the chair was the longest since Bill Podmore and, going by episode count, by the time he left Blackburn had produced more Coronation Street than anyone in history. He received his final credit with Episode 8967 on 12th August. Meanwhile Kieran Roberts, who celebrated ten years as executive producer at the beginning of the year, stayed on for an eleventh.

Emily Bishop leaves the Street for six months

Eileen Derbyshire, a member of the cast since the fifteenth episode and the programme's longest-serving actress, had asked in 2015 to be written out for a period of six months for undisclosed personal reasons [1]. On 1st January, Emily Bishop left Weatherfield to join her nephew Spider Nugent volunteering in Peru. After the six months, Derbyshire entered a period of indefinite leave, with show bosses maintaining that she had not left the programme [2]. Emily's sojourn in Peru continued until 2018, when she moved (off-screen) to Edinburgh.

Coronation Street's creator Tony Warren passed away on 1st March after a short illness. Warren had last written for the show in 1976 and had continued to be involved in an advisory capacity until shortly before his death. The next instalment to air, Episode 8851, was dedicated to his memory.

Blackburn's last hurrah

Key plot threads were resolved in Stuart Blackburn's final months, chiefly Tracy Barlow's feud with Carla Connor and the Callum Logan saga, which came about because of Alison King and Paula Lane's exits.

It had been announced the previous May that King was taking a sabbatical, but in January the actress clarified that she was leaving for good after a ten-year run [3]. Coronation Street again supported the Britain's Got Talent live finals in May, broadcasting a week of post-watershed episodes centering around Carla's wedding to Nick Tilsley, at the end of which the pair split and Carla went alone to Devon after being bought out of Underworld by Johnny and Aidan Connor.

Paula Lane had also chosen to leave after six years playing Kylie Platt. Lane was pregnant with her second child and was due to take maternity leave in the summer when the actress decided to take a break from acting and focus on motherhood for a while [4]. As she had no immediate plans to return, producers decided to kill Kylie off and make David a widower, opening up new story opportunities for the Platts.

Lane shot her final scenes in June after months shooting the climax of the Callum Logan storyline. The drug dealer's body was exposed in May when Tyrone Dobbs crashed his pickup truck into 8 Coronation Street's annex. The murder of Callum was wrongly pinned on Tony Stewart, the builder who had unknowingly concreted over the body. An off-screen death by heart attack for Tony was written in prior to the body's discovery in order to end the storyline without any characters going to prison for the crime. Tony's death also led his grieving son Jason to leave Weatherfield to go travelling in Thailand. Ryan Thomas, who had been with Coronation Street since 2000, was inspired by working with seasoned actor Terence Maynard to quit and try something new [5]. While the door was kept open for Thomas, with Jason retaining ownership of the builder's yard, the actor did not return to the role.

In March, Sarah Platt gave birth to Harry, son of Callum, eventually leading into a portpartum psychosis storyline with Sarah believing that Callum was still alive and stalking her. Harry was initially played by Woody Illsley along with Pixie and Presley Sellars, but after a month Illsley was dropped with the twins continuing to share the role. Also on the Platt front, Lily was recast with Brooke Malonie replacing Betsie and Emmie Taylor in June. March also saw the return of Kylie's old friend Gemma Winter, now a regular and employee at Prima Doner, as well as the debut of her new friend Freddie Smith, played by former Play School presenter Derek Griffiths. Freddie was a client at Audrey's salon who gained employment at Webster's Autocentre.

Kylie Platt dies in David's arms

In July, Kylie was killed in a random stabbing outside the kebab shop. Paula Lane last appeared in the role in a scene set in a Chapel of Rest. Kylie's death scenes were widely praised, particularly the performances of Paula Lane and Jack P. Shepherd [6] [7]. This was one of the last episodes produced by Stuart Blackburn, ending his lengthy tenure on a high note.

Time out

Steve McDonald was back on-screen in April when Simon Gregson returned from a period of absence. Just two weeks after the actor started filming, he hurt his shoulder in a fall at home and required surgery. This resulted in another three weeks' absence and the injury being written into the programme with Steve's arm in a sling for a while [8]. Liz McDonald was also absent for almost two months in the same period when Beverley Callard took time off to focus on health issues.

Three actors were granted leaves of absence to appear on stage. Roy Cropper spent four months nursing Sylvia Goodwin in Hastings while David Neilson acted in the Samuel Beckett play Endgame, while Michael Rodwell went to Brighton to run an ice cream van due to Les Dennis's commitment to Down the Dock Road. Brooke Vincent's absence to appear in Be My Baby began in August and lasted the remainder of the year, with Sophie Webster leaving the Street in October to join Rosie on a promotional contract in Miami.

Two key returns aired in January. Following her successful 2015 stint, Sally Ann Matthews signed a new contract as Jenny Bradley, who worked herself up from rock bottom with the help of Rita Tanner. The other was Pat Phelan, morally bankrupt builder who had previously blackmailed Anna Windass into sex. Played by Connor McIntyre, Phelan was given and home and job in the Street, and quickly took over as the programme's lead villain.

Two of the programme's child characters changed heads. Maddox Beswick made his final appearance as Jack Webster in May with the part then being taken over by Kyran Bowes, while the lesser-seen Jake Windass was recast with Seth and Theo Wild replacing Harley and Layton Phoenix. Meanwhile, Maria Connor and son Liam were back in April when Samia Longchambon returned from maternity leave. Lastly, Bhavna Limbachia joined the cast as maneating nurse Rana Habeeb, who later became Zeedan Nazir's girlfriend.

A small change to the make-up of the Street took place when Tracy Barlow closed down Barlow's Buys and opened a flower shop called Preston's Petals in its place.

The Kate Oates effect

Kate Oates became Coronation Street's 33rd producer in April

Kate Oates became the credited producer with Episode 8968 on 15th August. Like Blackburn, Oates had been producing Emmerdale for ITV when she was offered the job on Coronation Street. She had previously been assistant producer on the latter programme for a short period from 2012 to 2013.

Oates would soon establish herself as someone willing to take risks with Coronation Street and explore darker themes in her stories, moreso than any of her predecessors. In 2016, her efforts mainly went towards resolving the leftover plot threads from Blackburn's tenure, getting the cast she wanted in place and sowing the seeds of what would be the major storylines of 2017.

Two examples of the former were David's revenge against Kylie's killer Clayton Hibbs and the departure of Caz Hammond. In October, a grief-stricken David hatched a plan to drive a petrol-doused car into a police van carrying Clayton to his murder trial, killing Clayton and himself. An October stunt had been teased by Kate Oates, with no further details given [9]. This was part of an initiative by the producer to adopt a more closed spoiler policy and reward the audience with surprises [10]. The stunt in question saw David's car flip over while swerving to avoid Lily, causing Lily and Gary Windass to be trapped underneath. Although they escaped without harm, Anna Windass was unexpectedly caught up in the resulting explosion and her legs were severely burned. In the other cited storyline, Caz Hammond was arrested after failing to frame Maria Connor for her own murder.

The fruits of Oates's labour could most clearly be seen in the revjuvenation of the Barlow family. In October, Peter Barlow made a return, once again down on his luck. On the same day, Ken suffered a stroke and the family began to rally round. Adam Barlow was pegged for a return, potentially to played by a new actor though ultimately Samuel Robertson reprised the role, which was now being more overtly modelled on Adam's father Mike Baldwin. Daniel Osbourne also returned, now played by Rob Mallard. Daniel was a university student, and very much like Ken. From being a mostly stand-alone character, Ken was now the head of a multi-generational family.

A recurring theme of Oates's tenure was a fast and loose approach with characters' backstories. In September, Beth Sutherland was revealed as a bigamist, thus invalidating her marriage to Kirk. Three months later, Mary Taylor confessed to Norris Cole that she was raped at fourteen years old and had a son named Jude who was taken off her. Now living in South Africa, Jude Appleton visited the Street on Christmas Day to meet his mum for the first time. Lastly, Sharif Nazir was exposed as a love cheat who had been carrying out a secret affair with Yasmeen's close friend Sonia Rahman for the last seven years. While the story was being filmed, actor Marc Anwar was fired with immediate effect for making racially insensitive comments about Indian people on Twitter [11]. The fallout from his affair was rewritten with Sharif fleeing to Newcastle and Sonia leaving the Street shortly thereafter.

Another controversy occurred following the broadcast of Episode 8978 on 29th August. In the episode, Eva Price makes a comment regarding the Roots character Kunta Kinte, which some viewers found to be culturally insensitive. An apology was made by the show's producers soon after and the line was cut from the ITV Hub version of the episode.

Gearing up

Compared with previous producers, Kate Oates's cast shake-up was relatively minor, concentrating mainly on returning characters. Brian Packham was back, now Environmental Health Officer with Weatherfield Council, while Georgia Taylor reprised the role of Toyah Battersby after an absence of almost fourteen years. Returning on Christmas Day, Toyah was revealed to be Peter Barlow's secret girlfriend, setting up one of the main plotlines of 2017.

Also making their debuts in the latter months of 2016 were Harry Visinoni as Seb Franklin, boyfriend of Faye Windass, Julia Goulding as Shona Ramsey, David's next love after Kylie, and Christopher Harper as Nathan Curtis, Shona's ex-boyfriend who befriended Bethany Platt.

By the end of the year, the only one of Blackburn's plots still running was the rise of Pat Phelan, which would eventually be extended into 2018 due to the character's popularity. In November, Les Dennis quitting his role after three years allowed Phelan to claim his first victim in Michael Rodwell. In his final episodes, Michael rumbled Phelan and Vinny Ashford's Calcutta Street flats scam but suffered a fatal heart attack while trying to make a run for it, with Phelan coldly watching him die.

Viewing figures

Ratings chart for the year

From the penultimate week of May, ITV started to amalgamate the main channel's viewing figures with those of ITV HD and ITV+1, giving programmes a significant boost on BARB which will distort any year-to-year ratings comparisons. Prior to this date, viewing figures had continued their downward trend which began in 2014, with January and February averaging 2.5m viewers down across the last three years, although the drop in 2016 was only around half that seen in 2014 and 2015.

The change in the way ITV measured its viewing figures immediately boosted Coronation Street's ratings by 0.5m viewers, with the spikes becoming more pronounced as the year went on. October to December averaged a rise of 1.5m viewers, giving an overall average for the year of 7.05 million viewers, half a million up on 2015.

Episode 8914, in which Carla Connor left the Street, was the most-watched episode of the year with 9.19 million viewers, the first time an episode shown on Britain's Got Talent finals week had ever claimed the top spot. In the charts, four episodes reached number one after the low of 2015.
