Coronation Street fans were left stunned when they spotted the Tardis and some daleks in the background of a scene.
Roy Cropper, played by David Neilson, and Mary Taylor, played by Patti Clare, were sitting in a parked car in Blackpool as they pursued Mary’s wayward son Jude when fans spotted the phone box used by Doctor Who and the villainous mutants from the sci-fi show reflected in the window.
On fan wrote on Twitter: “DID I JUST SEE DALEKS WAIT WAHT, ROY, SHUT UP FOR A MINUTE, WE’RE UNDER ATTACK.”
Another said: “Anyone noticed this. Tardis and Daleks in @itvcorrie.”
Yet another wrote: “I know Mary is distracted by the whole Jude thing, but surely her and Roy couldn’t have missed the fact that The Tardis went past chasing some daleks?”
Another queried: “Did anyone else just see 2 daleks & the Tardis go by in the reflection of Roy’s car window in Corrie, or am I tripping out my nut?”
The episode saw Roy and Mary track Jude down for a final confrontation, after he left the cobbles in October after being caught out in a string of lies.
Viewers were not happy to see him back, with one writing: “We now know Jude is/was a big mistake. Couldn’t the writers just have Mary wake-up after a snooze in Emily’s and everything to have been a dream? After all, Dallas did it with Pam Ewing.”
Another said: “Such a loser. This character does nothing for #Corrie; please get rid,” while one more added: “Please god, let this be the end of Jude …worst character and most pointless storyline ever.”
Coronation Street continues on ITV on Friday at 7.30pm.
