New thread in time for the new year - hopefully this year will see the back of some awful characters.

I would personally like to see the following rounded up and shoved in a deep hole in the Red Rec:

Yasmeen and her entire extended family
The Community Centre

That'll do for starters.

I agree and would also like Andrea to be sent into outer space.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sat 27-Dec-14 18:32:36

How could I forget about Jazz-Hands-Andrea???

Yes PLEASE get rid of Gareh and Isseh and Owen and Anna. (Anna actually seems like a lovely person in RL!)

I think they may be going for a suicide storyline with Gary. Gary kills himself over depression over beautiful Asian girl who's name I can't remember/ Tina / Izzy / being unemployed / Afghanistan / being an incestuous weirdo. Then, Faye goes off the rails with guilt and they all move somewhere for a fresh start.

Quite like Steph and Tracy.

Ah but there was a storyline afoot about a mini-bus at New Year?

Suffice to say (no Spoilers) you might get your wish.

But I will shout at the screen "Owen. OWEN Do not get on the feckin' bus "

You cannot have Owen in your list (but YY to Anna, Izzy, Gary, Katy, Faye - off you trot)

Thanks for the new thread!
I like Steph because she's a feisty character and not defined by her relationships to men. Hope they keep her that way.
Just realised my shoot list at the end of the other thread didn't include Sophie so just for you Anne I'll put her in the firing line and save Nick wink

Thanks for new thread.

We don't need to bury Traceyluv in the Red Rec hole .Liz will do it when she finds out about her and Tonygrin

millimat Sat 27-Dec-14 21:08:18

Am I alone in that I quite like watching Tracy?

mytartanscarf Sat 27-Dec-14 21:10:09

I like watching Tracy grin I found her distress over Rob fairly believable and I do like the fact she has more than one aspect to her personality.

EdSheeransGString Sat 27-Dec-14 22:53:20

I also like tracy, Kate Ford is a fantastic actress.

I'm hoping Gail, Les Dennis and David get on the bus wink

AnneEyhtMeyer Sat 27-Dec-14 23:05:05

The bus! I had forgotten about the bus! I hope it is a double decker with extra seating. We need a big clearout!

Thanks for saving Nick, Camo. flowers

Theshed - you speak sense. Liz will dig the hole for us!

Thanks Anne. I'm torn about Tracey, she is so awful, but she does get a lot of good plotlines, I think she'd leave a very big gap if she went.

Yasmin is growing on me, just because of the way she brings out the social climber in Sally. I love the way they have successfully paired Sally the snob up with Tim the most unpretentious, laid back bloke in the Street, and the way they've blended Kev back into the family. Maddie has grown on me too.

I don't really like Steph, but agree that it is good to have a single female character who isn't constantly in and out of relationships.

Thanks for the new thread.
Thought the Xmas eps were boring and couldn't care less about Kylie and Callum.

Love Sally and Tim so much and like Nicks new pairing he needs a bit of that!

Tracy is great value.

judydoes Sun 28-Dec-14 09:01:11

Much as I don't like the character, the Kylie storyline is stupid IMO.

The guy intruded. Why didn't she call the police-if she didn't want to due to drugs,fair play but she hadn't taken drugs, he was pushing, why didn't she just tell David he was Max's Dad and he was trying to make her take drugs? David knows she'd had problems and he was working with her for it, and he knows Max has a Dad somewhere.......

I'm over-thinking this, aren't I grin

Same with why didn't Roy call the police when those lads were antagonising him outside the shop....

judydoes Sun 28-Dec-14 09:04:10

The sofa thing's stupid, too!Why not just use dining chairs and tell YasMEEEEN and co the truth?!

Pyjamaramadrama Sun 28-Dec-14 10:45:07

I quite like Tracy, she's a love to hate character and works well with the other established characters. Some comedy moments between her and Ken/Deirdre/Liz/Steve.

I agree with the others on the list especially Gary, he's definitely Corries most pointless character for me.

Although dare I say it some Sally/Yasmeen comedy could be funny.

Oh I don't mind Steph either.

I'd love to see Deirdre back for the new year.

ExitPursuedByABear Sun 28-Dec-14 13:08:32

Where is Deirdre?

qazxc Sun 28-Dec-14 15:32:12

I found it rather cringey that tracey was stood around in background for ages "seductively" holding and sucking a candy cane in Rovers.

mytartanscarf Sun 28-Dec-14 15:36:07

I think the actress who plays Deirdre is unwell?

thenightsky Sun 28-Dec-14 15:51:38

I quite like evil Tracy. She is going to run rings around whats-his-name, Liz's bloke and make his life hell just for entertainment. She's a great manipulator of people.

Ladytron Sun 28-Dec-14 17:47:14

I like Tracy-luv too!

Can I add those flipping chickens to the Red Rec hole too? Chickens = cue an annoying storyline.

Also, did anyone think Steph gave up the manager's job at Nick's a bit too easily to Leanne-Bowlegs?

mytartanscarf Sun 28-Dec-14 18:15:48

Nooo save the chickens!

Hardly anyone on the Street has pets. Just Eccles grin

Faye needs a cute storyline about finding kittens. Then Emily could have a kitten and Gary could win Aaliyah (is that her name!?) back with his tender behaviour towards them. Steve's depression could be cured too. And one kitten could scratch someone we don't like.

I should be a Corrie scriptwriter! wink
