5.0 out of 5 stars Women of Coronation Street, 17 Sep 2011
This review is from: Coronation Street: Women Of Coronation Street [VHS] [1998] (VHS Tape)
This was an enjoyable canter through half-a-century of The Street. I disagree with the other reviewers who criticised Betty Driver's performance - I thought there was nothing wrong with it at all. I won't spoil the video, but the very last comment (after the credits have rolled) is wonderfully funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 1 Jun 2009

This review is from: Coronation Street: Women Of Coronation Street [VHS] [1998] (VHS Tape)
This was an excellent video and it was brilliant looking back on the earlier days of the street with the memorable female characters.
Jean Alexandra was yet again brilliant in her role as Hilda Ogden. Betty Driver wasnt good but that didnt stop me enjoying it from beginning to end.
Any corrie lover and anyone who liked the female characters would want this great funny video.

5.0 out of 5 stars The women of the street, 28 Feb 2004
This review is from: Coronation Street: Women Of Coronation Street [VHS] [1998] (VHS Tape)
Well- Jean Alexandra AKA Hilda Ogden. Fantastically performed, comically resorected into her old hairnet and curlers as Hilda Ogden once was. But what is troubling me is that she hasn't playe dthe part before about 10 years of making the video and was superb. BettyDriver AKA Betty Williamson was b****y awful. She couldn't ever act if her life depnded on it. But the tape shpws a good 1 hour or more fantatsically funny, dramatic and best moments the street has ever seen.

Worst Actors who should have been sacked from Coronation Street and Why-
Snotty Emily Bishop- A stuck up snutty madame who everytime talks is SO posh you have to look her words up in a dictionary to find out what say Repugnas means (Why doesn't she just say horrid)
Dreary Deirdre Rachid- How can them vains still stand?
Goodness me!!! Surely they cannot stand much longer of Deirdre. Everytime the women turns her face all her vains pop up the side of her neck to support her. Everytime she cries her vains go bright red and rashy and look like they are going to explode with anger. And everytime the women speaks it sounds like she's got a sore throat. Everytime the women breaths it sounds like she can't and if I was Ken I would have thrown the baggy old bat out years ago. And she is now 50 years of age, my grandmother is 80 and shes not that bad imagine Deirdre then, she will have to wear protective throat and vain gear for th rest of her life.
But otherwise don't be put off my Anne Kirkbride's dreadful acting. Get the comcial tape whoch provides highlights from the past 45 years.
