Was tonight's Fiz van smash Coronation Street's best ever stunt?

Comments (4)

Forget the Tram crash, forget Don Brennan driving his taxi into the viaduct, forget Gail going into the canal - was the relatively simple Owen's van/ Fiz showdown on this evening's Corrie the most convincing stunt the show has ever seen? Very possibly.

When Corrie try to do a BIG stunt they always go for BIG production value, this means model shots and CGI for the tram crash or big cranes and studio wet tanks for canal leaps. But actually these rarely convince, you're always left thinking 'that canal water looks very clean' or that the tram looked a bit Thunderbirds as it bounced off the mini-mart and into the Kabin.

Tonight, however, a quick cut, technically basic street accident was shot and edited with precision and élan and resulted in a perfectly convincing-looking scene - nice touch with the overhead group shot at the end as well.


Maybe the Corrie producers should take note - you don't always have to spend big bucks to make a brill bang.
