ORIGINALLY set to cause Lorna Laidlaw trouble, Dr Henry Thorne has been wreaking havoc in Peter Barlow’s life.
The new Coronation Street villain is portrayed by Dominic Mafham whom viewers may recognise for his many other TV credits.
Peter Barlow (portrayed by Chris Gascoyne) survived a life-threatening alcohol addiction but life in Weatherfield is perpetually rocky for its residents.
The cabbie trusted Dr Henry Thorne for another surgery in recent weeks and came to regret it when it was revealed he had made a joke of the procedure.
Unfortunately, Peter landed himself into plenty of trouble when he punched the surgeon in a restaurant.
Since then, both characters have been at each other’s throats amid an intense feud – and Corrie fans are likely to see more of the evil medical expert.

This wouldn’t be the first time Dominic Mafham made an appearance on TV screens and he’s quite familiar with the world of soaps.
A regular face on the box, the 54-year-old has appeared in multiple shows, with one of his most notable appearances being in the role of Charles Kruger in the BBC series Killing Eve.
But Coronation Street is not his first walk in soapland as he has appeared in rival shows The Bill and Casualty.
His TV credits also include appearances in Silent Witness, Our Mutual Friend, Midsomer Murders, Land Girls and DCI Banks.
Dominic was seen in another ITV drama, Grantchester, as St John Gurney-Clifford.
He was also the voice of Chidak in Doctor Who: The Final Phase and Doctor Who: The Dalek contract in 2013.
In the 1990s, Dominic appeared in 24 episodes of Castles as Matthew Castle.
Dominic could also have been accustomed to playing the roles of doctors due to his appearance as Dr Andrew Argyle in Always and Everyone from 2000 to 2001.
But it looks like he could be staying in the cobbles for quite some time as his Dr Thorne’s rivalry with Peter Barlow continues.
