'''Mervyn Watson''' (born [[1945]]) was the [[producer]] of ''[[Coronation Street]]'' between [[1982]] and [[1985]], and again from [[1989]] to [[1992]]. He joined [[Granada Television]] in [[1980]] as an associate producer on series such ''Strangers'' and also produced ''First Among Equals'', ''Floodtide'' and ''Wipeout''. He went on to produce ''Emmerdale'', in arguably its most successful period, during the mid 1990s - however he proved an extremely controversial producer when actress Tonicha Jeronimo revealed her horrible behind-the-scenes experiences. Additionally, Mervyn has served as [[executive producer]] on ''Casualty'', ''Holby City'' and ''Dalziel and Pascoe''.
