'Coronation Street' boss Phil Collinson admits he may have misjudged some of the soap's plots.
The executive producer - who has been responsible for a number of hard-hitting storylines, including the reign of terror of evil John Stape (Graeme Hawley) - will try and "shift away from serial killers and crime" as the show moves forward.
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "We've been at the police station and the court a little bit too much. I can take that one on the chin.
"We will shift away from serial killers and crime storylines in the coming months."
Meanwhile, Phil suggested putting out five episodes every week may be too many for viewers to digest.
He added: "We produce 250 episodes a year. That's a lot of television."
Elsewhere, Michelle Collins - who has attracted criticism for her portrayal of a Manchester accent in her role as new Rovers Return landlady Stella Price - has vowed not to quit the ITV1 soap.
She explained: "I ain't going anywhere, so get used to it. I'm going to do my darndest to make Stella one of the great Corrie characters."
