Watching Doctor Who on 27 May (BBC1), I noticed that the street where most of the action took place was called Florizel Street. Am I right in thinking that this was the original title for Coronation Street?

Gail Jones, Chester

Yes - several readers spotted the reference. Coronation Street was created in 1960 by Tony Warren, but was only given its name at the last minute. Two pilot episodes had been filmed as Florizel Street: Warren had a painting of the hero of Sleeping Beauty, Prince Florizel (aka Prince Florimond), on his office wall. Then a tea lady at Granada Studios called Agnes remarked that Florizel sounded like a disinfectant, so Warren came up with two others: Jubilee Street and the producers' eventual choice, Coronation Street.
