Episode 605

A tearful Minnie Caldwell sees through the kindly deception being played out for her sake

28th September 1966: Despite the disapproval of Ena Sharples, Minnie Caldwell had always had a soft spot for Jed Stone ever since meeting him in 1961. She looked on him as a son she had never had and he looked after her in a way that few had during her life, even as Ena belatedly acknowledged. Jed though was always a petty criminal and his activities even while he lived with her at 5 Coronation Street crossed over the law. Inevitably the police were catching up with him and Jed received a tip-off that they were on his case in September 1966. He couldn't leave Minnie though as she was ill and needed looking after and then he had to stay for a birthday party for her in the Rovers. The police entered No. 5 and found five stolen blankets. They came for Jed in the Rovers during the party but the kindly officer went along with a deception played out by Jed and the other regulars that he was a friend of Jed's so as not to distress Minnie. At the same time, she knew full well what was happening but kept quiet. Nevertheless, she wept as her "Sunny Jim" was taken away. She never saw him again, nor did any other resident of the street for 42 years...

Mark Casey in 1989

Mark Casey was a young mechanic who worked under Kevin Webster at his father Tom's garage from 1989 to 1990. For his 21st birthday, Mark was given the garage, and in 1991 he sacked Kevin for doing foreigners. Without Kevin to keep him right, the inexperienced businessman ran the garage into the ground within a year. Mark was born on 15th October 1969. He was the only child of Tom and Jean Casey, businesspeople and owners of Casey's Autos in Weatherfield. At Weatherfield High, he was always getting into trouble, and once took the wheels off his teacher's car as a prank. At 19, Mark's two main passions were cars and women. He had two years experience working in garages and was a skilled mechanic but lacked discipline. When Tom bought Tilsley's Garage in Albert Road which was managed by the late Brian Tilsley's hired hand, Kevin Webster, he sent Mark to work there under Kevin, hoping that it would be an education for his son.
