Coronation Street fans suggested they had discovered a plot hole in the Geoff Metcalfe storyline this evening, as the Corrie villain failed to mention his son’s illiteracy.
Sitting together in the park, Tim Metcalfe raised his concerns about his childhood, confused about the identity of his real mother.
Geoff was quick to console him, regaling him with stories of his childhood.
He claimed to have taught his son about magic – but never mentioned Tim’s inability to read and write.
Back in 2014, Tim’s illiteracy was a major storyline, as the window cleaner bravely decided to educate himself.
Taking to Twitter this evening, viewers wondered why Geoff mentioned teaching his son magic tricks – but not basic reading or writing skills.
One said: “I still can't believe they haven't explained or expired why Cotswold Geoff never knew his son couldn't read or write. #corrie.”
“True, enough. Guy like Geoff would be well ashamed of an illiterate kid. In fact, I doubt he’d even allow it to happen,” agreed a second.
And a third chimed: “Sick of this now….that the hell does Tim's birth certificate say? And yes Tim, he was such a good dad, he didn't teach you how to read…”
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
