We're into a new decade now and if we're lucky that means Corrie fans can soon expect a new DVD boxset from Network covering 2010 through 2019. 80 episodes over ten discs, like the previous five sets, to take us up to the present day.

But that's a big if. And I'm impatient to see how the highlights of the 2010s stack up to the other decades. To that end, as a thought experiment I've gone through the events of the last ten years and made my own list of episodes that could feasibly end up on such a boxset.

Taking my lead from the existing sets, I've picked out eight episodes per year, avoiding any that have already been issued on DVD (meaning no tram crash or factory explosion from 2010). As the 2000s set contained one hour-long episode for each year, I've tried to continue that pattern but a few years have nine regular episodes instead where none of the hour-longs appealed. With my picks, I've tried to represent all of the main storylines and characters, again like the existing sets, with enough births, weddings, deaths and stunts to make this a credible "best of", while also inserting a few "ordinary" episodes in there that I remember being very good.

Onto the picks, and I want to make clear that I didn't rewatch all of these first, never mind the ones I left off!
