I have to say that I have always thought that the addition of the character Tom Connor on the Street was a bit odd. He is a Connor cousin and yes he went into business with Liam, but his raison d’etre is a bit up in the air, in my opinion.
While I do like the character he doesn’t really fit the bill as street totty like Jason Grimshaw. He isn’t funny enough for the comedy relief like Tyrone Dobbs. He isn’t quirky like Royston Cropper and he doesn’t really fit a highly dramatic role Like David Platt. So, I don’t know that Tom has a long future on the show. Since he is a Connor I have a suspicion of what is going to happen to this character.
Who thinks tom will eventually meet his end on the roads of Northern England? How many of us think booze will be involved? Who among us will dare to say that there may be some fowl play? Finally, will Michelle continue to insist that the Connor boys are actually choirboys?
