Weirdly seen a couple of Brookside adjacent things recently, Mark Moraghan in Thomas The Tank and that Jimmy Corkhill meme page keeps coming up every few months since the summer

Brookside: The Return

Oh my god. Might start a watcha long podcast.

Does this mean England people will need to watch it on ITV X though? Ugh.

I would subscribe!

Have some friends who were in it and i think a few anecdotes about actors my dad knew that I’ll have to ask my mum about.

Not sure on the player as all the articles say STV so assuming it can downloaded regardless of location :thinking:

just had a look at the STV player app, it came up with a message saying “some programs may not be available in your area”, but Brookside shows up in the Top Picks section, so think we’ll be alright

Used to love Brookie.

Difficult now to believe the uproar this caused:

Remember when there was a religious cult and an explosion or something? Because I do, just not very well.

Just remembered I had a dream about Jimmy Corkhill last night :sweat_smile:

Very excited about this.

Got a while to wait before this though [CW: Barry Grant]

Barry lived near my nan and everytime he came on screen she’d make a big fuss over looking away or leaving the room because he was “a very rude man”.

From what i can piece together this is down to her seeing him in the cornershop and him not introducing himself to her :sweat_smile:

Always feel bad for Gordon’s big moment (the first openly gay character on a British soap opera) being overshadowed by the snogging.

That said I don’t remember Gordon/before my time so I’m looking forward to meeting him soon.

I shall be changing my Avatar accordingly week by week to show my solidarity with the misery, drama and pain of the folks of the Close.
