Eastenders Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 1 May 2017

Another joy filled week in Walford, culminating in a horrific stunt by the resident bullies – here are some highlights:

Fit Beale ~ Jane’s bought Ian a present, there’s a few steamy looks passing between them until she reveals that it’s a fit bit! Cue Ian scheming to demonstrate that he is getting his thousands of steps in. Using his grandson wouldn’t be part of the deception would it? Oh yes it would!

Jane’s triumph ~ Once Ian has stopped cheating the fit bit, Jane shows him her ability to log some steps on her fit bit, and it’s a touching moment when Ian realises how far Jane has come. I can’t be alone in wishing for a full recovery for Mrs Beale?

Woody’s unpopular ~ Sacking Tracey from The Queen Vic? What on earth was Woody thinking! I loved the riot it kicked up and maybe he will think twice before he makes any further rash decisions, or maybe not! All hail Tracey, the heart of the Queen Vic Pub!

Jobs a good ‘un (or not…) ~ Denise and Michelle are both off to interviews, Denise’s interview is not quite as high-brow as she imagined, given that it ends up being a cleaning job. Michelle’s is yet another education based option. Either way, job hunting is not going well for either of them and Denise is on her knees financially. When will the girl get a break?

Party time ~ Louise thinks she’s having a pyjama party with her ‘lovely’ mates, they have other plans and Sharon’s house is turned into party central with a selection of invited guests rocking up, including Travis and Keegan. The cocktails that Louise is necking in an attempt to look cool aren’t as innocent as she thinks and disaster strikes leaving the troubled teen unconscious in the street and an ambulance on its way. I wonder when we’ll see an end to the bullying storyline? It could run and run because that would reflect real life, of course.

Eastenders Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 3 April 2017

Walford, Walford, Walford – what more can I say? Do you ever watch a week’s worth of EastEnders and wonder what it would be like if everybody was happy, just for once? I do, but it’s a fleeting thought! Here are the highlights…

Picture Shows: Sharon visits Michelle in hospital. Michelle Fowler (JENNA RUSSELL), Sharon Mitchell (LETITIA DEAN) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Kieron McCarron

Michelle’s misery ~ Michelle (Jenna Russell) is languishing in hospital following her alcohol-fuelled crash into the chippy. Sharon (Letitia Dean) is telling her what she wants to hear, for now. But it all begins to unravel as the week unfolds and reaches a pinnacle when the ‘cradle-snatcher’ comes face to face with her niece. Awkward! I have started to enjoy Jenna Russell’s performance as Michelle, I no longer compare to her to her predecessor anywhere near as regularly.

Lauren’s lured ~ Lauren (Jacqueline Jossa) goes out to meet Josh the photocopier man again, he’s got a job in mind for her that he thinks she should apply for and she’s up for it! Oh dear Lauren, I don’t think this is going to end well. Firstly, is she going to cheat on Steven (Aaron Sidwell) with him and secondly, he works at Max’s (Jake Wood) office and daddy doesn’t seem keen on his daughter working with him. I don’t trust Josh – are we being set up to see an explosive storyline? I do hope so!

Shirley’s release date ~ Shirl (Linda Henry) has the death of her mother to deal with, the circumstances in which they happened not exactly being the best either, if we’re honest! However, with her release date imminent at least she can get out and help her sister? It looks like Shirl might have put pay to that though when she turns on her intentionally irritating cellmate.

Meddling Max ~ Max has been behaving even more strangely than before since his return and he has also been conspicuous by his absence too. He now appears to be interfering in Stacey’s (Lacey Turner) life by sticking his nose in on her feud with Carmel (Bonnie Langford). Just what is he trying to achieve and isn’t it great to have him back? I am a huge fan of Jake Wood, he does that role justice.

Kush and Denise ~ I just wanted to air my views on the latest couple to pair off in Walford. Denise (Diane Parish) and Kush (Davood Ghadami). It almost feels like it hasn’t come out of the blue, yet it does feel like it’s come out of the blue too! So soon after Denise has given birth to and given birth to Phil’s (Steve McFadden) baby, just where is this relationship supposed to go and does Kush see Denise as a mother figure? I’m 50/50 over this one because I actually quite like them as a couple, too – something about this set up also makes sense! I’m still none the wiser now I’ve written down my thoughts. I’m intrigued…

Eastenders Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 27th March 2017

A revelation, a car crash with far-reaching consequences and a fatality – it’s all been going on in Walford and Sharon’s (Letitia Dean) backkkkkk! Here’s a few highlights:

Bex Fowler (JASMINE ARMFIELD) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Kieron McCarron

Michelle’s misdemeanours ~ During a party for Sylvie (Linda Marlowe) at The Vic, Bex (Jasmine Armfield) decides to let on that she knows the truth about Preston (Martin Anzor) and Auntie Michelle (Jenna Russell). She interrupts a song to shout it out to the gathering in the pub! Martin (James Bye) is flabbergasted and the repercussions look set to spread far and wide. After all, not only has Martin’s sister been sleeping with a lad almost 33 years her junior but she has done so knowing that the lad in question has been sleeping with her niece as well!

Kush’s krush ~ Kush (Davood Ghadami) has continued to pursue Denise (Diane Parish) until she halts his attentions with a declaration of friendship only. However, when Kush is a victim of Michelle’s drive through the chip shop, Denise changes her mind and ceases the day and the opportunity. Although Carmel (Bonnie Langford) had hoped that her son’s girlfriend was a doctor he’d met in hospital! Let’s see how long this relationship lasts!!

Chip shop carnage ~ The chip shop drive through mentioned above was the result of an intoxicated Michelle losing control of the vehicle she thought it was a good idea to take for a spin around the square. Kush, Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) who is working in the chippie at the time and of course, the driver herself, all come a cropper in the ensuing carnage. No fatalities to report but Michelle does end up coming off worst. Plus I expect that chip shop will be closed for as long as it takes Ian (Adam Woodyatt) to sort it out…

Picture Shows: Michelle is still inside the car. Michelle Fowler (JENNA RUSSELL) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Jack Barnes

Sharon shoots her mouth off ~ Sharon comes returns to sort out Michelle’s mess and attempts to shoo Preston off by giving him a cock and bull story about Michelle’s true feelings towards him. It seems to work and she has his plane ticket paid for without so much as a bye your leave. Whether that’s truly the last of the young lothario, remains to be seen. What will Michelle’s reaction to the news that her best friend has seen off her toy boy lover?

Farewell Sylvie ~ In scenes that had me hiding behind my hands as the end was in sight, an unsupervised Sylvie (Linda Marlowe) ran a late night bath, brought the radio in for company and exited Walford as a result. With devastating consequences and a heartbroken Tina (Luisa Bradshaw-White) beside herself that her mum may have cottoned on to the plans to put her into a care home and committed suicide. That wasn’t the case, as we saw, but it’s a sorry end for one of my favourite residents and what will Shirl (Linda Henry) say when news reaches the prison?

 

EastEnders Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 13th March 2017

Walford has been churning out the misery again, this week! If it’s not Bex (Jasmine Armfield) and her woes, there’s Max (Jake Wood) and his scheming, plus Tina (Luisa Bradshaw-White) is struggling all the more with Sylvie (Linda Marlowe) now that Shirl (Linda Henry) is banged up. Here’s a few highlights:  

Tears before bedtime for Tina ~ Caring for mum isn’t getting any easier for Tina as she decides that taking Sylvie to work is the way forward. Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) isn’t keen on this idea, whereas Tina isn’t overly keen on Kathy’s opinion either, she is doing everything she can to avoid putting her mum into a care home.

Bex’s bothers ~ Bex is still being bothered by bullies and formulates a plan to avert going back to school. Telling her dad (James Bye) that an apprenticeship will be her plan, it’s clear that Bex will do anything not to return to the bullies’ lair. This storyline is still only just hotting up…

Linda’s back (and she’s gone again!) ~ Linda (Kellie Bright) makes a brief return this week after Jane (Laurie Brett) tips her off about Mick’s (Danny Dyer) problems. The reunited Carters reconnect and Linda’s all for staying at The Vic while arranging for her mum to have alternative care. However, Whitney (Shona McGarty) seems able to convince the worried landlady to return to where she is needed most of all. Although I’m not so sure this is right for Mick. So, it’s back to maternity leave for Kellie Bright after her keeping in touch day!

Grandad ~ Max (Jake Wood) is suddenly seeking a relationship with Lauren (Jacqueline Jossa) and his grandson. Stacey (Lacey Turner) happily encourages him to go round to see them both. However, what are Max’s real intentions for this step? He’s always playing a game and his daughter is wise to it, too. More to come I shouldn’t wonder. I’m a fan of Jake Wood’s so I’m glad to see him taking a more central role in the soap, again.

EastEnders to strike? ~ June Brown who plays Dot missed out on a BAFTA for Best Actress in 2009. Now, the cast are claiming that they’re going to halt filming if she is snubbed this year. This is probably an exaggeration, but as the stalwart turned 90 years old this year and continues to work on the soap, I see their point that recognition is surely over-due.

EastEnders Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 20 February 2017

This week’s EastEnders has given us punch-ups, more trauma for poor Dot (June Brown), Ian (Adam Woodyatt) in a medical dilemma and Rebecca (Jasmine Armfield) in a compromising position with her aunt’s play-thing. Certainly not a boring visit to Albert Square by any stretch of the imagination! Here are a few highlights and some exciting news…

bex
Bex (Jasmine Armfield) looks like butter wouldn’t melt while she strums her guitar!

Denise in a dust-up ~ Keegan (Zack Morris) gets his come-uppance in the form of post-natal Denise (Diane Parish), this week! The horrid teen winds up the shop worker to the point of no return and she sees red. I’m sure we all pretended we didn’t see that bodily harm, didn’t we? The boy makes my blood boil so it’s no wonder he’s doing the same to one of the Square’s most gutsy ladies. Well done, Denise! Give him another punch for all of us… Plus well done to Zack Morris for having the desired effect, he is a playing a character that we’re supposed to hate, after all.

Dot’s dodgy driving ~ Despite the warnings, Dot goes out driving this week – and with little Matthew in the car, too! It’s an accident waiting to happen and Kim (Tameka Empson) is first to point the finger at the traumatised stalwart. However, mouthy Kim can’t stay angry with her for long, when Dot breaks down in highly emotive scenes it’s enough to melt the hardest of hearts, I’d wager. When will Dot catch a break? 2017 is continuing where 2016 left off for our favourite long-term cast member.

Ian Beale (ADAM WOODYATT) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Dan Goldsmith

Ian’s ignorance ~ Ian Beale has been to have his health check up, despite his initial reluctance, however the concern shown by the professional whom he cagily confided in has put him in a flat spin. The hapless entrepreneur seems to have decided that ignorance is bliss. However, with his own self-check almost interrupted by Jane (Laurie Brett), he is obviously not ignoring the possibilities entirely. Come on, Ian – man up!

Raunchy Rebecca ~ Bex has become quite sexually confident since her virginity was well and truly lost. Therefore she has no qualms about jumping into bed with Auntie Michelle’s (Jenna Russell) American beau, Preston (Martin Anzor). I’m not so sure if that dalliance was the horrifying part or if I was more disgusted by Michelle sleeping with her toy-boy afterwards, and with the knowledge that he had slept with her Niece! Have a word with yourself, Michelle!

Break A Leg Awards 2017 ~ Long-listing has commenced for the 2017 Break A Leg Awards and we are delighted to announce that both Adam Woodyatt and Laurie Brett have made the long-list for Best Actor on Television and Best Actress on Television respectively! Good luck to them, short-lists will be announced in October 2017.

EastEnders Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 13 February 2017

Love was in the air in the Square, this week. OK it was circling the area… No? Well, someone must have been happy – let’s see shall we?

EastEnders - January-March 2017 - 5442

Whitney’s at her whit’s end ~ Whitney has come a cropper at the hands of Lee (Danny-Boy Hatchard) and decides that he should spend a night or two with daddy (Danny Dyer). Despite yet another set-back in their young marriage, Whitney is determined to get back on track and when the couple book a table for dinner on Valentine’s Day – Mrs Carter is hopeful. However, with her husband on a knife-edge with his mental health, he soon makes a rash decision and Whitney finds herself dumped. Who saw that coming? Well, we all did I suppose, but it was very harsh to do it on Valentine’s Day! His exit story line has been emotional to say the least, he’ll be missed.

Remember Roxy? ~ Jack (Scott Maslen) has sent his paperwork to Billy (Perry Fenwick) for the head stone to mark the Mitchell sisters’ grave. However, Billy is concerned and put out when he discovers that Roxy (Rita Simons) has been omitted from the wording. Approaching the grieving Widower, Billy tentatively queries if there has been a mistake. No mistake, though! Oh dear…

Jack Branning (SCOTT MASLEN), Max Branning (JAKE WOOD), Billy Mitchell (PERRY FENWICK) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Jack Barnes

School Boy Absconds ~ Preston (Martin Anzor) is in the Square and Michelle (Jenna Russell) is rather delighted! It seems that the ‘boy’ has not forgotten his love interest and has pursued her all the way to Walford. Where will they go from here? I expect we’ll have fun finding out. I suspect they will too!

Mrs Beale’s Mobility ~ Jane (Laurie Brett) has made extraordinary progress following the horrific beating she suffered at the hands of her Son, last year. Of course she’s made good progress, this is soap, they can do what they like! However, her recovery spells the end of NHS physio and Jane’s distress at the withdrawal of the service means that Ian is going to put his hand in his pocket again. He’s already splashed out on the swish new wheelchair and pink gloves, has he got money to burn?

June Brown ~ A very Happy Birthday to June Brown who has played Dot for decades and continues to be a favourite with the faithful following of fans. To think that she has reached the grand old age of 90 years old and continues to work regularly in such a fast paced and precarious business is an achievement in itself. Dot is the Queen of Walford and I really hope that BAFTA recognise her talent and longevity, soon. I know she has a NAFTA, but come on BAFTA!

Eastenders Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 30 January 2017

Walford post-bus crash, an interesting place that’s for sure – especially with Martin (James Bye) up and about with not a care in the world. So how has the disaster affected the residents and has Mick (Danny Dyer) dealt with Whitney-gate, yet? Let’s see what the week held in store:

Programme Name: EastEnders - Portraits 2017 - TX: n/a - Episode: EastEnders - Phil Mitchell (No. n/a) - Picture Shows:  Phil Mitchell (STEVE MCFADDEN) - (C) BBC - Photographer: Kieron McCarron
Picture Shows: Phil Mitchell (STEVE MCFADDEN) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Kieron McCarron

Stacey and Martin – baby talk ~ Stacey (Lacey Turner) has been hell bent on having a baby with Martin and since he was discovered under the bus, last week. So… with Martin showing no signs whatsoever of having suffered any lasting damage from the disaster in which a solitary unknown character died (yes, I am still harping on about that!), Stacey is raring to go. Although this does seem to have sprung up out of the blue and taken over their lives, at least Stacey has said she will go for help with her mental health ahead of the potential pregnancy. Stacey also has a run in with Carmel (Bonnie Langford) when she is trying to interfere with the way that Stacey is raising her grandson. I suspect that this will rear its head again!

Tony’s Wife Sniffs Around ~ Phil’s (Steve McFadden) late friend, Tony is a constant reminder of his near-miss and the arrival of Tony’s Wife has set alarm bells ringing for Sharon (Letitia Dean). Is she seeking revenge because Phil got the liver transplant over him? We wait with baited breath. Sharon and Phil have taken the time to have dinner together and re-connect, this week – but I doubt this is a long-term eventuality.

Babe – oh dear! ~ Babe (Annette Badland) is in trouble or causing trouble, that’s the long and the short of it. When Ian falls asleep at the bar (Mr Beale’s health is the issue, if you read the spoilers) and Babe accuses him of being drunk – it’s no wonder that Mick’s (Danny Dyer) blood boils over. Babe has already been warned numerous times by her despairing family and with rumours stating that the character’s days are numbered, could the end be nigh for her? I’ll miss Babe if and when she exits the square, she stirs the pot and causes controversy, I like that in a Walford resident!

Sisters… ~ Kim (Tameka Empson) marching into Denise’s (Diane Parish) adult learning class was not her brightest idea. Humiliating Denise in front of her class was the icing on the cake, hence the decision to tell Kim that she should consider herself abandoned. They’ve always endured a tempestuous relationship, but has this latest development spelled the beginning of the end for the feisty siblings? Whatever happens, I can’t help but think that Empson and Parish play the duelling pair brilliantly, they are entertaining even at the height of dramatic exchanges!

Jane Beale ~ I always like to round-off with a piece about a character and on this occasion I want to pay tribute to Jane Beale, who is played brilliantly by Laurie Brett. Jane was one of my first favourite female characters on the square and I was a bit gutted when she left. Although it was great to see Laurie move on to pastures new, and do so well outside of Walford, I am pleased that she has retuned, re-married Ian (Adam Woodyatt) and continues to grace our screens in a superb role. She has had some cracking storylines from the outset.

Eastenders Weekly Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 9 January 2017

Here we are with another five highlights from the drama that has unfolded on Albert Square this week. It’s been a cornucopia of angst, distress, revelations and a cheeky two-hander between a pair of classic characters. So, just a normal week in Walford, really – let’s see what’s been floating my boat and sinking my ship….. No? Too much? OK here’s the highlights:

WARNING: Embargoed for publication until 00:00:01 on 03/01/2017 - Programme Name: EastEnders - January-March 2017 - TX: 12/01/2017 - Episode: EastEnders - January-March 2017 - 5423 (No. n/a) - Picture Shows: Sharon sees Michelle sobbing in the Square. Sharon Mitchell (LETITIA DEAN), Michelle Fowler (JENNA RUSSELL) - (C) BBC - Photographer: Jack Barnes
Picture Shows: Sharon sees Michelle sobbing in the Square. Sharon Mitchell (LETITIA DEAN), Michelle Fowler (JENNA RUSSELL) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Jack Barnes

Two-Hander totes amazeballs! ~ Despite my ‘on the fence’ opinion of Jenna Russell as Michelle, which remains unchanged as we go to print, the revelation about Michelle’s 17 year old school boy lover over in the States was an edge of your seat episode for yours truly. Letitia Dean was quite engaging as Sharon and improved my thoughts on Ms Russell as her life-long friend because she took the lead in the scenes rather adeptly. I knew there’d be more to Michelle’s reappearance than the search for a decent cup of tea, but this bomb shell was quite something. Well done, writers!

Denise’s destiny ~ Denise giving birth to the baby she plans to have adopted was a harrowing experience to watch, it was done so brilliantly. Kudos to Diane Parish, she hit the mark throughout the entire episode. The scene where she finally acquiesced and held her new baby boy broke my heart. I think it’s brave of her to make a decision for his future, as a mother myself I don’t know if I could do what she’s doing. Also, I must mention Tameka Empson’s understated performance as Kim, it suited the tone and showed another side to her character.

Mick’s misery ~ Mick’s (Danny Dyer) birthday is not quite the occasion for celebration with Lee’s (Danny-Boy Hatchard) misdemeanours putting financial strain on the family purse strings. Having been advised not to buy any pressies for daddy dearest he has bought a piece of West Ham’s old ground and it is not received with a big warm hug and a thank you. Seeking out the receipt and returning it is more Mick’s bag in this case and it seems that Whitney (Shona McGarty) really got this one wrong.

Babe’s browned off ~ Babe (Annette Badland) is not happy with Whitney’s influence on Lee and makes it abundantly clear, following the disastrous giving of the gift to the birthday boy. As the pair lock horns and Babe attempts to shake off the new wife, Whitney stands her ground and tells the bitter old matriarch to do one, in a nut shell. However, I’m sure I’m not on my own in thinking that Whitney has not had the final word on this battle. The gloves are off, folks!

Dot’s dealings ~ I feel the need to comment on Dot’s (June Brown) ongoing loneliness. Although I am sure that many people of her age are in similar predicament and it goes undetected, everybody has their noses in one another’s business in the Square and it seems convenient that in Dot’s case at least, now they don’t. I think it’s a fantastic story line in as much as it highlights the problems that are faced by the elderly, but I’m not sure how realistic it is in this setting? I am happy to be contradicted…

 

Eastenders Weekly Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 2 January 2017

Following on from the eerie silence of the finishing credits on New Year’s Day the Square has been in mourning for the tragic loss of Ronnie (Sam Womack) and Roxy (Rita Simons). While their exit from the show will be noticeable for more reasons than the glum expression on the face of newly widowed Jack Branning (Scott Maslen), I have to admit that the fall-out had made for excellent viewing. Although other sagas in Walford are playing second fiddle, they’ve also not been forgotten either. Here are my top five highlights of the week:

Programme Name: EastEnders - Portraits 2017 - TX: n/a - Episode: EastEnders - Michelle Fowler (No. n/a) - Picture Shows:  Michelle Fowler (JENNA RUSSELL) - (C) BBC - Photographer: Kieron McCarron
Picture Shows: Michelle Fowler (JENNA RUSSELL) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Kieron McCarron

It has to be the post-traumatic scenes that have unfolded since the Mitchell sisters met their maker in a chlorine and alcohol fuelled disaster. Scott Maslen has surpassed himself in the episodes following New Year’s Day. I think it must be a combination of the filming and Mr Maslen’s performance that almost slowed the early scenes of the week to a funeral procession pace and gave the distinct impression that we were following events as they happened. Glynis Barber is sticking around as Glenda the grieving mum and the variation in the ways that they are both handling the loss and failure to unite in their grief is an interesting journey for both Jack and Glenda.

I am not entirely convinced about Jenna Russell taking over the role of Michelle, but what I am convinced about is that there is so much more to her visit than popping into the country for a decent cuppa. So, I am carefully checking out all of the tiny give-aways which are subtly hidden in her various scenes and I feel confident that more characters will be following to wrap this little mystery up. Although I’m not taking to Russell as a replacement for Sue Tully, I don’t deny that she is an accomplished actress who will be capable of carrying the ensuing drama that will surely come. I am rather surprised that her scenes with Ian (Adam Woodyatt) and Sharon (Letitia Dean) have been minimal thus far.

It was brilliant news for Mick (Danny Dyer) when he found out that Ollie was making good progress and that no more appointments are required to check up on the little one’s progress. Poor Mick has a lot on his plate as it is what with Linda (Kellie Bright) is with her ailing mother. Of course, in real life, ‘Linda’ is on maternity leave so Mick will be dealing with the ups and downs of the Carter family for as long as that lasts! At least he had Whitney (Shona McGarty) to accompany him to the appointment. Even if the air is clouded with her husband’s guilt… However small it may seem in the grand scheme of things, thank heavens Mick has caught a break with his youngest son. For now…

Picture Shows: Denise Fox (DIANE PARISH) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Nicky Johnston

Denise (Diane Parish) has definitely made her mind up about the baby she’s carrying and intending to put up for adoption and Patrick (Rudolph Walker) has a real shock when he learns that she doesn’t wish to hold the baby after its born. Denise’s heart breaking speech listing her reasons why she couldn’t risk bonding with the new baby made for engaging viewing. I think Patrick is going to find being the birthing partner an arduous task and have started to wonder if he will pull out of it altogether, given his reaction to her decision.

Finally, my ‘don’t you just wanna scoop them up and hug them’ prize of the week goes to Billy (Perry Fenwick), Honey (Emma Barton) and their little family. When all else is crumbling around them, their unit seems so settled and secure and fills me with confidence! Probably misguided confidence because this is Eastenders after all, but for now, they are a real delight to watch.
