Coronation Street

Shakespeare & Hathaway to feature legendary Coronation Street villain

Remember Maya Sharma?

Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators spoilers follow.

Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators airs a guest appearance from one of Coronation Street‘s most memorable villains today (February 16).

The latest episode of the BBC One daytime show features Sasha Behar in the role of Finty Lees-Jones, who’s a suspect in a new case.

Wednesday’s episode sees private detectives Luella Shakespeare (Jo Joyner) and Frank Hathaway (Mark Benton) receive a visit from Jonathan Skylark, who wants answers over the death of his wife Ophelia.

Ophelia drowned on the night of her 40th birthday party nine months earlier, but the police’s investigation into the tragedy was inconclusive.

Jonathan, who runs a boat company, asks Lu and Frank to delve into the case to give him some closure.

During their investigation, Lu and Frank meet Jonathan’s business partner Finty, who doesn’t welcome their presence.

With her attention firmly fixated on the company, Finty is reluctant to answer any questions – but does she have something to hide?

Sasha is best known for playing Maya Sharma on Coronation Street in 2003 and 2004.

Maya’s gripping storyline saw her develop a dangerous obsession with Dev Alahan following a short-lived relationship with the Corner Shop owner.

After Dev dumped Maya and reunited with his ex-wife Sunita, Maya launched a ruthless campaign of revenge. This culminated in her setting fire to Dev’s businesses and holding Sunita hostage.

Shakespeare & Hathaway is a daily crime drama set in Stratford-upon-Avon, which focuses on a different mystery in each episode.

The show is now in its fourth series and will be airing new episodes over the next fortnight.

Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators continues today at 2.15pm on BBC One.
