Frankly I was surprised they even included that many classic characters.
I have started uploading some 1978 episodes on my Youtube channel. Most have been up before (not all) but the channels were taken down. They all have Dolly, although the bigger episodes with her I haven't put up yet. Just thought you might want to know.
There are a lot of high quality photos of the Eastenders cast at Walford Web. I don't want to repost, of course. Everyone mostly looked good, aside from Laurie Brett (yikes). Diane Parish and Shona McGarty I'd say looked the best for the ladies, James Bye for the men. Danny Dyer wore an odd shiny suit of multiple colors that made him look like a Doctor Who villain from the McCoy era. And Danny Boy Hatchard bulged out of his suit trousers expertly.
I would like to see him with Stacey too. I'd mostly like to know they aren't going to use him to dredge up unearned sympathy for Jane and Ian and to try to mine the "self-hating gay" story that was so poorly done with Ben and with Steven himself at one point. I really wish it wasn't DTC doing this. He got it so wrong the last time with Steven.
He's gorgeous. He's also a very good actor, which the show sometimes remembers.
Bonnie's been great on the show. She won a lot of doubters over. I'm happy for her.
There's some speculation that Lauren and Steven are now a couple, so I wonder if they're going to remember he was at point bisexual or if they're recycling the tired "psycho gay in denial" stuff they had at the end with him, and later with Ben.
