Description

Eddie Yeats is back on the Street for the Christmas holidays and immediately attempts to pick up where he left off with Bet before their intended night of passion was rudely interrupted. The Rovers’ band play together for the first time - Billy and Ken on horns, Alan on guitar and Ernie on piano; they have a crack at ‘Theme One’, though Ena Sharples isn’t impressed. This has been one of the moves that have reduced YT to merely another corporate tool, yet so dominant is the platform when it comes to its specific market that it continues to put other video platforms in the permanent shade. Alf and Len go head-to-head in the battle to become Lord Mayor of Weatherfield; when the former triumphs, the latter recives comiserations from Cyril Smith, Liberal MP for Rochdale and fellow Satanic Abuser. Stan tips-off Ray that a new nightclub on the eve of opening needs some last-minute plumbing in the hope it’ll make them all square; whilst there, Oggy encounters his perfect woman, who happens to be as thick as pigshit.

Elsie is pissed and feeling sorry for herself when Alan turns up to inform her his hospital treatment is over; she refuses to take him back and storms off, ending up getting run over by a taxi. Hilda is determined to spice up her sex life by purchasing a see-through nightie whilst Len finds solace in the arms of old flame Elsie after running away from a nightclub brawl Rita gets involved in. However, by the time its third anniversary came around, the writing was on the wall and several ITV regions had dropped the series; Granada decided to abruptly axe the show in September 1975, wiping episodes to ensure it was never seen on TV again, but enabling myth and legend to grow around it for decades thereafter. It would’ve been foolish to spurn this unexpected and enthusiastic fan-base eager for new videos, so I gave them what they wanted by reviving what became my signature series, ‘Buggernation Street’. Ray’s ‘sprained wrist’ is dismissed by Albert, though it mysteriously heals when Langton visits Irma’s room and fancies being paid in kind for converting it to a separate flat; rumours that Annie Walker is contemplating a Rovers redecoration suggests further business opportunities for the firm, whether the jobs go through the books or not.Len is angry that Jerry can’t film his latest dogging expedition with Rita on account of the cine-camera’s lens being shattered by a ping-pong ball fired by Mavis, and Ray’s promise of shooting a promo film for Lucille and her blonde buddy is threatened by this development too. Luckily for Len, the leading magistrate is a fellow member of Weatherfield Satanic Abuse Society and he gets off.

Jerry is out of his depth as he takes Mavis for a meal at a swanky Italian restaurant, declaring he’s far happier eating beans-on-toast in his socks, vest and underpants in front of the telly. This is a clever reflection of the actual terraced street where the characters reside, which itself hasn't changed since it was built during the late Victorian era. Not only can I not start another channel on YT, but I’m also prevented from subscribing to anyone else now; I can’t even comment on or ‘like’ the efforts of others.

Billy continues to be tormented by the prospect of Deirdre’s latest fantasy - although he and Ray quickly suss out her manipulation of their libidos. The small number of critics who spoke up for the series praised its ‘realism’, pointing out that ‘Buggernation Street’ was not just the only programme on television where the characters went to the toilet (and commented on it afterwards), but was a rare example of a show in which those in it spoke the unvarnished language of real people. There’s no on-screen nudity or sex of any kind in a single episode of the 42 that ended up being produced; it’s merely suggested in the most explicit manner possible – and it makes people laugh at the same time; indeed, how could they not laugh at the thought of Maggie Clegg treating Alf Roberts to a spot of water-sports or poor old Stan Ogden being forced to bend over as Hilda shoves a police truncheon where the sun don’t shine?
