  • 2. The technical code of the mid shot of the woman standing outside of her house smoking, connotes her ‘villainous’ nature within the soap. This is further supported by the pace of the shot-reverse-shot that accentuates her role as ‘The villain’ (struggles against the hero) .‘the hero’ (reacts to the donor, usually marries the princess) ,who seems to be confronting ‘the villain’, is represented as ‘a villain’ by the mise-en-scene in that she appears much fresher faced and as if she has taken more care with her appearance in comparison to ‘The villain’ who is seen smoking and rather poorly dressed.

  • 3. Trailer 2 – coronation street spring trailer The villain within the trailer is presented straight away in the trailer as a character who discloses having murdered another character which immediately portrays him as an antagonist within the storyline.
